“But could youth last and love still breed,
Had joys no date nor age no need,
Then these delights my mind to move,
To live with thee and be thy love.
Romance is the totality of it,
Beyond every love affair yours stays bound,
Your indescribable love keeps me mute in awe,
But oh! Forever young I am in your arms.”
I don’t wanna be a preacher or a talkative…. I just want to be a doer. I don’t wanna be a Pastor anymore…. I just want to be a Christian. I don’t wanna be a spectator either… I want to be a partaker. I don’t want to be a singer anymore… I want to be a worshipper. I want to be a replica of Christ! I don’t desire fame, I don’t desire fat purse… I simply desire Jesus.
I want more of Jesus…. I wanna know more beyond what I’ve known! I wanna do more, beyond all I have done… I want the glory of the Lord to be seen all over me!
Yes… People confess of the evidence in me but I am not satisfied. I don’t want to end up in the Church, I don’t want to end up in my books…. I want to live forever in the arms of Jesus.
I have no regard for death, I have no regard for sin, I have no regard for my flesh… All I desire is you Lord.
I was not worthy, but you made me worthy! You shut the mouth of my enemies and proved your love! I have not loved you like you love me, I have not been faithful like you are… I have not been perfect as you are but Lord, you have been more than perfect! You have been more than loving!
All the way I ask myself, who am I that you are mindful of me… And I hear you say
“you are my seed…. the seed of my righteousness… you’re growing into my very self”
Why Oh! Lord… Why this romance with you because I don’t deserve it! Yet, I hear you whisper in my ears
“Do you know your worth? You’re worth the blood of Jesus. That is why you’re so special”
Many times have I felt you’re far from me because I couldn’t maintain your standard but many times have I heard you say
“Nothing shall make me stop loving you! Let nothing make you think that I have stopped loving you!”
I have learnt from you Lord, that the only thing you hate is people thinking that you doing love them! Dear Lord, I will not stop believing in your love! I love the way you love me and I thank you for being patient with me.
Now, I pray for the ability to share your love to others, to make others come to the knowledge of you! I also pray for the ability to be patient with others and expect them to change. Sweet Lord, you turn every sinner to a saint!
You’re the sweetest thing that ever happened to me! I love the romance between us…. What a loving father you are. Thank you!
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
– James 1:22 NIV
Neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. – Romans 8:39 NIV
Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. – 2 Corinthians 9:10 NIV
knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot.
– 1 Peter 1:18-19 ESV
