the purest

by - January 09, 2018

Most recently, i received a compliment,
But not of regular ordinance.
it wasn’t, you’re pretty, or
i wish i was like you.
and even though at first it sounded shallow,
i realized that it was one of the purest compliments, i could ever receive.
it’s not because he doesn’t think i’m pretty, i know he does.
but I believe it is because he knows that it’s so much more
than merely what i look like on the outside.
he says, i am attracted to your heart for jesus.
and at first, i feel like i’m supposed to be offended because it’s not the usual,
it’s not about my body, what i wear, or how i appear,
but rather this compliment,
it goes so much deeper, and i realize how it refreshes the soul.
it’s an compliment for something that only God could do in me.
and nothing could ever be
more pure than that.

  5. Aw <3 I love compliments like those. Things you actually have some control over. You are a follower of Christ -- that's a choice you made. And so He works in you, and if a guy can see that ... man, keep him! :D
