But he already holds my heart.
I might not have ever held his hand.
But he's already won my heart.
I might not know the shape of his face, the curve of his smile or the depth of his voice.
But I'm his.
He has stolen my heart.
And I don't even know if I've met him.
A recent set of circumstances had me pondering this thought: my heart is taken and I don't even know you yet.
I have a little ring. It's simple and sweet, but once in a while I wear it on my left hand. Today I was asked if someone had stolen my heart.
Yes, someone has stolen my heart. Do I know who that earthly someone is? Not today. I have hopes and thoughts and dreams...but do I know?
But my heart has always been taken.
Held in purity, guarded in modesty, secreted as one would a priceless treasure, I have been unwilling to simply give my heart away. To give away such a gift? Would be parallel to giving my body away. The more the heart is handed over, the less I have to share with the one who I have truly waited for.
Who holds my heart? The only One who matters. Each day, prayerfully walking in faith that He continues to complete the good work He has started in me. And someday, the right someone will come alongside, take my hand and my heart and we'll continue on together...continuing to pursue and chase hard after the only One who should every hold all of our hearts.
When will I know that it's time to share my heart?
I've never been there, so I really don't know. Do I believe I'll know when it happens? Absolutely. Because I pray that my heart and his are so in tune with God, we simply continue to walk in the footsteps before us...together.
Until then...my heart is guarded. Protected. Secure. Trusting in a faith that only God gives.
My heart is taken. Do I know who holds it? No, but he already has my heart. And until the day I meet him and feel God's whispered smile...I'll continue to hold it close.
Coming with body and soul...heart and love complete. Whole. Cherished.
Don't give your heart away. Walk close with God and He'll guide. So long as you're willing to follow, He will only continue to restore, heal and make whole.
