Your Love For Me, Revised

No greater love: A poem.

O, how much You must love me!

So much that:

Before I could fully comprehend the meaning of you being “the Great I AM”;

Before I could understand that there is value in me just being who you created me to be;

Before I could have a chance to grow, You planned a life destined for greatness designed for me.

Sometimes, I plan to do right, with regrets I admit, I do wrong.

Sometimes, I don’t show you just how much you mean to me.

Sometimes, I don’t remember the grand scheme that includes me.

But, You never leave; you have never turned your back in spite of my deeds.

Yet, You are always here with unconditional Love.

And, You quickly accept me back into your arms of safety with supplication for every need.

My revelation: I can not make it day to day without you.

My realization: I am better spiritually, mentally, and physically because of you.

Ultimately, there is no greater love; than the love that connects me to You.

Lately, I have felt lost at what God wants for my life. Ever since I've come back to UWG everything has been horrible. It seems that I can't catch a break. I'm trying my best to focus on school, work, and extracurricular activities. But it's hard when I'm having issues with my apartment/roommates and knowing my family back home is struggling and needs many prayers. All, I keep thinking is maybe Carrollton isn't where I belong anymore. I've asked God if He can guide me in the right direction. Below, I have found Bible verses that have helped get me through these rough, past couple of weeks.

"When you go through deep waters, I will be with you."

2. Psalm 37:5

"Commit your way to the Lord. Trust in Him, and He will act."

7. Isaiah 41:10

"Don't be afraid, for I am with you. Don't be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand."

8. Isaiah 66:9

"I will not cause pain without allowing something new to be born, says the Lord."

9. Psalm 91:4

"He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings, you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart."

10. Psalm 62:1-2

"My soul finds rest in God alone, my salvation comes from Him, He alone is my rock and my salvation."

11. Philippians 4:13

"I can do everything through Christ who gives me strength."

12. Jeremiah 29:11

666

I was created in the image of my Creator,

Yet I am prone to imitate our perverter

He died for me—so that I may truly live,

Yet I give myself to death willingly

He paints a halo over me

Yet I see horns on my head.

667

Concussed and confused—my mind asks,

Where is my God?

Tormented and torn—my heart yearns,

For its Father.

Scared and searching—my spirit knows,

He is near.

677

Damn my good intentions,

Damn my wishful thinking,

Damn my justifying mind,

Damn my character.

My God, My God, I fearfully pray,

break this good man—make him righteous.

777

I have come to understand—

By letting go, I can grasp

By losing myself to you, I fully gain myself.

Show me who I am—

before all the haze of my thoughts.

Moment by moment—forever

you have changed me.
