Am I Lovely?

At the heart of each woman is the question, “Am I Lovely?” John and Stasi Eldredge wrote a powerful book called, Captivating, Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman’s soul. I have been re-reading this book and pondering the nature of the desires I have experienced from birth, trying to better understand myself and help others to know themselves well. In my musing, I wrote this poem. I hope you enjoy it! Please share how this question has impacted your life, too…

Am I Lovely?

In the midst of dirt and animals
In the midst of tractors and trucks
I asked
Am I lovely?

I searched for tulips and daffodils
I searched for lace and jewels
I asked
Am I lovely?

I saw the beauty of the sunsets
I saw the grace of creation
I asked
Am I lovely?

My heart longed for my rescuer
My heart knew I didn’t belong
I asked
Am I lovely?

When my answer didn’t come
When my heart lost hope little by little
I asked
Am I lovely?

The storms came and blew dirt on my dreams
The storms shook my heart to its core
I asked
Am I lovely?

I looked to the sea to find my answer
I looked to the sky to find my God
I asked
Am I lovely?

To which He replied
You are divine
