The Love Of God!

We all have the love of God
He really loves us so,
But if WE had the love of God
There wouldn’t be such woe!
Our hearts because they’re human
Won’t share what most we need…
The power of the love of God
In thought and word and deed.
He gives His love so freely
It’s there to shed abroad,
But we close our hearts and selfishly
Hang on to the love of God!
There’s so much love to go around
And the need for it is great,
God pours His love into our hearts
There should be no room for hate!
Our world could be so different
It could be in a better place,
If we gave the love He gives to us
With His forgiveness and His grace.
Why do we want to hoard it
This love that has changed our life?
If we let it all go, others will know
The power of the love of Christ!

This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 1 John 4:10
We love because He first loved us. 1 John 4:19 us.

I Love You!

If my heart was a measuring cup
I’d think that it was all filled up,
With love for my Lord and ready to burst
But then He reminds me of something first…
I have a lot of love to give
It won’t run out because it’s His,
There is never too much to give away
And it’s never too often for me to say…
I love you, I really do
From the bottom of my heart,
I do love you.
You’re in my thoughts
You’re in my prayers,
All because God put you there.
He fills my heart but not too much
To share with others His loving touch,
His love is not measured
So mine must not be…
His love pours out to you through me!

“This is My commandment, that you love one
another as I have loved you.” John 15:12
