Oh How He Loves You and I!
by Lisa Walker Thomas
10/10/2014 / Poetry
God the Father loves us in a way that's immeasurable and unknown to us
He loves us in a way that speaks to our spirits
and elevates our minds moving our hearts to compassion.
He loves us in a way we marvel to understand
and with all of our reasoning, knowledge and insight
--still his love moves past the width of us
The compassion of God sustains me in a way that swallows me up
as I meditate on the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus
The unmatched sacrifice that allows me to type these words,
to be in his presence, to breath in and out, to wake up, to rise
oh how He loves you and I!
His love for us never leaves us cold and alone
He comforts us with the quilt of the Holy Ghost
The mighty, moving sweeping presence of God that brings POWER.
Oh what a wonderful gift this is!
To have the Lord Jesus shed his blood
as he lay his life down just so that I may open my eyes
blessed to see another day
blessed to even speak his name
blessed even in my faults
blessed day in and day out
knowing I'm not nearly enough
for the sacrifice,
oh how he loves us!
Gods love for us is magnified
when we know, that we know that we've fallen short
even in our pain, heartache and fear
the love of God remains near
I would be remissed to talk of the love of God all day
and not ever mention his unfailing Grace
His grace is sufficient for us
sheltering us all the day long
as weakness rears it's shameful head
grace and mercy create a path we're unworthy to travel
but because of his sovereignty
he created this path just for you and for me.
God's love for you will cause your body to bow down
and tears to fall as the majesty of his love leaves you awe.
As you count up the cost when you turned away from him,
placing that thing in your hands once again
like a child with an object they should not have.
You picked up the object once againtoiling and tossing it,
refusing to surrender it
you left it in your hands
and found yourself hurt once again.
But what did your Father do when he saw you in tears
he picked you up and held you and extinguished your fears.
That's God's love for us
even in weakness, disobedience and pain
you'll find his arms wrapped around you
Oh how He loves you and I,
so much so it brings tears to my eyes.
Where can I go in this life before me
where God the Father is not beside me
sheltering, calming and loving me
opening blind eyes so that now I see
oh how my Savior loves an imperfect me.
