The apple of my eyes|poems

Hosea 2:19-20

19:  I will make you my wife forever, showing you righteousness and justice, unfailing love and compassion.
20:  I will be faithful to you and make you mine, and you will finally know me as the Lord.

You are the apple of my eyes, yes you are

You are the apple of my eyes, yes you are

you are mine, my beautiful creature, created in my image
I AM perfect, and you are in my image, so I created you perfectly

You are the apple of my eyes, yes you are 

I love you, believe me, I do
tell me who reveals to you the plans and names of your enemies? 
who exposes every wolf disguised in sheep clothing in your life?
tell me, who fights your battles even when you are so quietly asleep as quiet as a newborn baby  

I do, because, you are the apple of my eyes, yes you are

I get angry when they make you cry, your tears are all so precious to me
I rage when they break your heart, an organ so fragile, your heart, my home
a place where you gave me the keys, a place where I dwell in to speak to you
my perfect creature, I care about you, yes I do

You the apple of my eyes

I love you, more than gold
and cherish you, more than rubies and pearls, way more than this world
I took my time with you because you are my number one
I gave you power over everything because you are my number one
I love you so much, I sent my son down on earth to bear every pain in your place

Oh, my precious, you are the apple of my eyes, yes you are

Believe that no one can hurt you, they can no longer deceive you, no one, no one!
I’ve sent the lion of Judah to fight your enemies
do you see how they rush to destroy you, but once they’re in front of you they stumble and fall, even they know that

you are the apple of my eyes, yes you are.

I wrote this poem in the month of July 2018, I was going through what I would call “the betrayal season” have you ever been betrayed by someone you are very close to, someone you trusted deeply the feeling is like a mixture of (surprised marinated with anger blended with sadness) And I just needed Jesus’s help to move on and get over it, because it was draining me out.

I was sitting on my bed feeling so devasted, and the Lord began to speak to me reminding me how He revealed to me what that person was doing against me and gave me the ability to confront them just in time before greater damages were made. And He began to tell me how much He loves me and won’t allow anyone to hurt me anymore. Like this verse in the bible says, and it’s so true.

Isaiah 54:17

17:  But in that coming day no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the Lord, their vindication will come from me. I, the Lord, have spoken.
