Meet My Friend 'Love'
by louis gander
10/26/2015 / Christian Living
Hello there! Meet my friend, 'Love'.
Inside my heart, He lives.
My other friends reside there too,
but my friend 'Love' forgives.
I have not done much for my 'Love' -
as my life was a mess.
And I remember my mistakes.
He loves me nonetheless.
'Love' does not tally up mistakes
that I have made before -
but 'Love' pours grace on all the more
and does not keep a score.
Ashamed, I am, when I think back
and wish I could divert
my thoughts and acts of selfishness
and all who I have hurt.
I often cry when I remember
all of my mistakes,
but 'Love' absorbs my pain and guilt
and does whate'er it takes.
'Love' can't reside in angry hearts
that it finds hard and cold,
but rather in the humble heart,
now whether young or old.
Atrocities of sinful man
just guts my inner soul -
but 'Love' is great and 'Love' is good
and 'Love' is in control.
Though 'Love' allows imperfect man
to make a sinful choice,
He cleared a path of perfect peace
so we can all rejoice.
Words can't express the joy I feel
and all I'm thinking of -
for God's the great creator and
He is the God of 'Love'.
I'm pleased that you have met my 'Love'.
Does 'Love' reside in you?
If you love others as yourself
then 'Love' is your friend too.
