Known and Loved

Poetry

You know exactlywhat I need in every way

You foresee my life

And You guide every day
You use my weaknesses

To accomplish Your will

You change my heart

And cause me to be still
I can’t see You with my eyes

I’ve faced many doubts

But every time I give up 

You grab hold and turn me around
That’s how I know 

and why I believe

That’s how I know 

You see and love me
Isaiah 49:16
See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me.
Luke 12:7
Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

Love Like That

Poetry

I know many doubt You are real

I have my doubts too

But when I see something so much bigger than me

I have to believe it is You.
It’s easy to wonder if You really care

When so many things go wrong

But in the midst of troubles I feel Your embrace

And my faith again is made strong
I certainly don’t have all the answers

My faith still wavers from day to day

But You seem to keep showing up

Over and over again proving Your love and grace.

 

Some may say Your kindness is a weakness

Showing such love after You’ve been rejected many times

But You don’t care. You love with abandon.

Letting nothing keep You from this heart of mine.

 

I want to love like that.
