{seven years ago}

April 11, 2004.
It was Easter Sunday.
I wore a blue sweater with pink flowers.
It was raining.
I walked into a church.
An invitation was given.
And "yes" was my answer.

It has been 7 years since I said YES to a relationship with Jesus.
In seven years, I have grown.
I have changed.
I have been broken down and built back up.
I have doubted and questioned and wondered.
I have been blessed in abundance.
I have been deeply, deeply loved.
I have been captivated by the beauty of this God.

"Ever since the day that I saw Your face
Try as I may, I cannot look away, I cannot look away…
Captivated by You
I am captivated by You
May my life be one unbroken gaze
Fixed upon the beauty of Your face"
