Thank You Jesus, thank You, thank You, thank You

"The Heart Of Love"

All my life

I've looked for Your heart

 

each day

brings me closer to You

 

each moment is joy

just knowing

a little of You

 

All of my days

were lost in a cloud

each one hazy

knowing nothing

of You

 

I've searched for Your heart

not knowing I was

alone

with myself

alone

with my friends

 

All of my ways

were held in a shroud

darkness

denying Your light

 

One day I read John

and..

a light came up burning

desire to know Your heart

 

What a model You are

to us all

what losses

we bring into our lives

when we lose

our desire for You

 

What joy You give me

writing this rhyme

not knowing the next word

but for You

 

All my life

I've been in Your heart

Thank you so much

for Your love

 

All of our world

is washed in Your love

why won't we

bow down to You

 

All my life

I've looked deep for love

Thank You........

for opening my eyes.

Yes Sam, Praise the Lord for God's Love to balance all the hatred and evil in the world. And how Jesus led by example... "When he was abused, he did not return abuse; when he suffered, he did not threaten; but he entrusted himself to the one who judges justly." How else could we even attempt to understand and practice the depth of God's Love when commanded to; "Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which mistreat you.", something that doesn't come naturally but only by the Spirit of God. Blessings, W.

You are so right when you say that we cannot understand God's plan. People today, like modern people of all ages, want to understand and know God according to how they want Him to act and be. One of my most favorite sayings from Christ is John ch. 8; v 58. In fact that whole chapter explains a whole lot about Christ as they were trying to trick him and were not clever enough to. He turned all their deceitful arguments against them but almost always, not always did it in a loving way. Jesus is God, I don't believemit; I Know It!

Amen Sam, God said it, that settles it... whether we believe it or not. Reminds me of those popular bumper stickers that always bugged me; "God is my Co-pilot" , WRONG - God is my pilot... period, as I am not equal with HIm. Blessings, W.

Amen! There's no greater love then him., he set us free and teach us all about love. His uncondinal love. Halliluah to our Almighty king.

When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
