How did You feel? 
When my heart staggered
To the drums of fear and worry
And lost the harmony
Of your promises
Firm and sure

How did You feel? 
When my heart masturbated
With longings of fame and riches
With the insatieties
Of self gratification
That pleasurable unfaithfulness

How did You feel? 
When I yearned for another
Like I never did You
Filling my desires and dreams
With the want of another
Casting your love to the mud

How did You feel? 
When my mind flirted
With man’s empty philosophies
And let go
Of the true word
Eternal and unchanging

How did You feel? 
When my life pursuit
Changed lanes to the broad way
When my focus and gaze
Moved away from your light
And lost you in the haze

How did You feel? 
When I let open my heart
To the defeated one’s voice
And let it be numbed
To your steadfast love
Unwavering and unfailing

How did You feel? 
When all I felt for you
Was obligation and religion
No passions, no love
Thinking it took my actions
To win your love

How did You feel? 
When all you became was
A persona non grata
To my choices, my decisions
As I led my own life
And treaded the paths I willed

How did You feel? 
Pain? Hurt? 
Disappointment? Anger? 
Heartbreak? Loss? 
How did you feel
Dear Lord? 

Love! Love!! Love!!! 
The symphony I hear
Lingering all along
Unquelled, undiminished
Always abiding
Playing for all eternity

I am Love
And I waver not
My love is self-abiding
Never anchored on your deeds
Unscathed by your unfaithfulness
Full in fury, powerful in tenacity

Beloved
Love’s all I’ve had for you
You’re tattooed on my palms
Set as a seal upon my heart
Ever before my eyes
Your days journalled in my diary

Precious one
I know all about your struggles
Your worries, fears and confusions
Your failings and inadequacies
And it is for them all
That I gave my own life

Because
All I feel for you
Is Love


John 3:16-17a (MSG)

This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. 

Songs of Solomon 8:6-7 (TLB)

“Seal me in your heart with permanent betrothal, for love is strong as death, and jealousy is as cruel as Sheol. It flashes fire, the very flame of Jehovah. Many waters cannot quench the flame of love, neither can the floods drown it. If a man tried to buy it with everything he owned, he couldn’t do it.”
