The Love of God

This poem was inspired by a friend who reminded me once again of the awesome power of God's love.

The Love of God

The love of God comes crashing down
And sweeps our broken hearts away;
In vain we build our sandbag walls
To keep the waves of love at bay—

The flood will purge our darkened souls
And we’ll be washed by storms of tears—
But bands of color cross the sky:
A life of joy and hope appears;

When we embrace the surging waves
We find new life beyond our dreams
As Christ himself resides within
A heart the love of God made clean.

That explains things very well. And I don't want those walls there. It is time for them to be crashing down. And there is little that can be done to keep them up when God's love is on the move.

Amen! May God's love come crashing down on my heart, and transform it into what He wants me to be.
