But Then

Divine Revelation

I rejected you

because I thought 

I was undeserving.


I turned from you

because I couldn't

see your blessings.


I hated you 

for becoming silent

when I cried out.


I despised you

for bringing me

to my knees. 


But then...


You sought me

when I was furthest

from your grace.


You called me

out of darkness

into your glorious light. 


You wanted me;

your desire was for me

to know your love.


You chose me

as your child,

adopted into your family.
