Love Is The Theme…

Looking in the rearview mirror….

“You thrill me, Lord, with all you have done for me!

I sing for Joy because of what you have done.

O Lord, what great works you do!

And how deep are your thoughts.”(psalm 92:4-6)

I have been looking in the rearview mirror recently,

Not to long for what I have lost through the years,

Not to find comfort in the ‘good old days’,

Not to cry about the friends who have drifted away,

Or the ones I have betrayed in some way,

No, I have been looking back,

To appreciate how far Jesus has brought me.

I have been through so many hard times,

And in my flesh for so long I carried wounds inflicted by others,

Yet, how easy it is to let all go,

Surrender completely to the One who loves me unconditionally!

For so long, my rational mind could not understand this.

In the world nothing is given freely,

You have to pay for what you receive in some way.

How could I be offered salvation for free?

Yet as I sit today,

And savor the sweetness of His love,

I realize He does not require perfection,

I don’t have to earn His love,

I don’t have to deserve it,

I just have to let Him love me….
