My love story

MY LOVE STORY

Today, as I celebrate my birthday, I want to share my love story with the One who started it all, the One who fashioned me in the womb, brought me forth and has preserved me to this day, God Almighty. This is a poem of thanksgiving to Him. I hope it inspires others to reflect on His love for them and spur them to seek to reciprocate that matchless love. Amen in Jesus’ name.

My Love Story

I am the delight of His eyes
The crowning glory of His creation
I was bought with a price
To honour Him with sweet devotion

Before I was conceived
He wrote down my life’s design
And ensured that I received
Fitting gifts for the tasks He’ll assign

Since my journey began
I’ve been clothed with His protection
And when affliction left me wan
He swiftly brought rejuvenation

In my moments of confusion
He has offered me His counsel
And in times of scant provision
My hands were graced with many a parcel

Perfect concord it would have been
If I matched His care for me
But oft, I wandered into sin
Like His love I couldn’t see

But His hand kept reaching out
Attiring me afresh in garments white
He died for me and without a doubt
He was determined to see me walk in the light

By now I should say that I do His bidding
Without any question, at the drop of a hat
But the truth is, as yet I’m learning
To do this daily as His word fills my heart

He says we will be together forever
It’s exciting to think that He’ll always be mine
That I have the honour on this plane and yonder
Of unending companionship with God divine

16 Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
17 How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!

[2] In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
[3] And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
[21] He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest f myself to him.
[23] … If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

Prayer:

Almighty God, You are everything to me. May I never take Your love for granted but strive each other to reciprocate it. And may I live in such a way that everyone I come in contact with will not only know my love story but embrace it for themselves too through having a saving relationship with Your Son, our Messiah, Jesus.
May my life show forth Your good works that all may glorify You and may my love story with You continue after this life to forever in Jesus’ name. Amen.
