LOVE IS FAITHFUL

God’s heart cannot be hemmed in
Oh, that I could experience it all day
But the ruler of this world pours acid
Aiming at our central core
For Satan wants to destroy the beauty
Flowing within us
That love planted by our Creator
Instilled with joy
Nurtured by our heart connection with Him

Hurts and distractions bombard us somedays
Causing some to stray from our mission
To love one another
As He has loved us

Isolated
Fear imprisons the hopeless
Battered souls
Blown near the edge of the abyss
Craving love lost from sight

A faithful, caring Christian
Snatches this hopeless one
Worn from the struggle with Satan

Carrying him with strength
Gained by Jesus’ victory over sin and death
To a meadow dotted with white lilies
Where only beauty abides
This deprived, beloved soul
Catches a glimpse of Jesus
Not far off

Healed, whole, and beautiful
The rescued owns a jubilant heart
As Jesus takes his hand
Renewed by the Savior’s love
He dances with Jesus’ heart
Love entwined with love
Forever trusting in God’s mercy
And faithfulness

RESTORED

How did my life get so tilted
A mountain strewn with jagged rocks
Rises before me
Courage I held yesterday shrinks
Receding to a nearby cavern
Likely filled with demons

Alone
My heart in my throat
I anticipate failure
And likely destruction

Where is that firm nugget of hope
I forsook
That certainty of victory
In the struggle with sin

My Lord and my God
I’ve abandoned you
My friend
My lifeline

How could I have forgotten
To grasp Your outstretched hand
Now, uncertain and lost
I hear You calling
Take My hand child
I still love you

As I grasp your nail-pierced hand
I remember
You bought me with Your blood
I embrace Your love
Vow to keep You my constant
Your abode is my sanctuary
Your sacrifice my salvation
