She closed her eyes and remembered the days when she couldn't give praise for one good thing to Simply Him.
It was dismal and abysmal, wanting more than what was, for Simply Him.
Needing to understand, yet never really grasping understanding when it came.
Joyful pretense in the midst of others, yet tears on a pillow, searching for Simply Him.
A vacant stare, an empty smile.
She opened her eyes and saw a reason to give thanks to Simply Him.
The reason was... absolutely nothing.
Nothing had changed in her situation or circumstance, for all remained the same.
Yet it was not really 'nothing' that had changed, it was absolutely everything.
Her perspective, her stance, her viewpoint, not through her own eyes, but simply through His.
For though she remained in a place where everything remained the same and she didn't have any reason to give praise for anything, she realised that she had every reason to.
Because she could see through the eyes of Simply Him.
She could now understand that joy or happiness, contentment or whatever names should be given to that one thing that she had sought after was not a need to gain in the physical or material, it was a renewing of the mind and true understanding once connected to the one that was Simply Him.
Yes...Simply Him drawing one to Him, through love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control.
Love Himself being...
