Poetry is an art I find both pleasant and painful to read. It is also an art I attempt to practice myself. Its been a while since I wrote a poem and was inspired to do so today. This is actually a poem that has been on my heart for months now and I was finally able to get it on paper. I pray it serves as a blessing to the Body of Christ.[b]There Is A Love[/b]There is a love comes from on highThat fills Gods people belowIt brings them joy as well as sighsAnd fills until it flowsThere is a love that counts no costIn reaching the dying massesThrough eyes compassionate it sees the lostAnd labors while time passesThere is a love, the heart it breaksFor this world quickly dyingInternal pains and lasting achesIt sets the soul to cryingThere is a love that hates all sinAnd delights in holy livingIt speaks the Word, the lost to winFor the One who is forgiving- J.M.
One can tell that 'did' come from 'your heart'.God Bless you Jesse.You stay in our prayers.Annie
Jesse,This is a beautiful expression of truth and your heart. The third verse is where I need to get to and I believe the Lord is taking me there.In the way you've expressed it, it's obvious when comparing with [u]Walking with Jesus[/u] in the thread 'for the girls...' that Christians do need to find Christ their Great Physician both as they come to Him and as they work for Him, to heal the wounds incurred in service.Thank you for posting this. It speaks volumes.
Great poem. I have found that the more you labor for Christ the more you begin to sense His love in that area you are laboring.
Hi,Your poem is a blessing to me.With thanksellie
Hi, PreachParslyQuote:by PreachParsly I have found that the more you labor for Christ the more you begin to sense His love in that area you are laboring.How true, The most Recent events are proving this, the very essence in my faith. I sense his ever increasing love, compassion, strength, courage, peace, rest, and his presence.I move on, in my ever continuing hope and his righteousness, exposing and revealing truth.In the scripture He says, the truth shall set you free I received these words to my heart and have lived daily with these words, as His promise to me.I thank you heavenly Father, for giving us your Son and leaving your Spirit until the work on Earth is done.Amen.All the Glory and Honour and blessing, be unto you Oh Lord.ellie
Very good, Jesse, and so true.Thanks for posting.May all of us be soul winners.God Bless you as you labor in His Vineyard.Nellie :-)
Amen, Jessie .. I think of in Genesis 6:6 [ the LORD was grieved that he had made man on the earth, and his heart was [b]filled with pain[/b] ]
