You Loved Me

An Original Work / November 27, 2019

When I was lonely and afflicted,
You were there to pick me up.
You took me in Your arms,
And You tenderly held me.

Your love embraced me.
Your grace sustained me.

When my heart cried out to You
In my despair,
You did not shun me,
But You let me know that You loved me.

Your grace forgave me.
You did not shame me.

Then I answered the call,
“Here Lord, send me.”
And so You sent me to where
You planned ahead of time to use me.

Your mercy held me.
You did not fail me.

And, when trials and tribulations
Came my way to test me,
You gave me everything I needed
So that I would not fail, but would survive.

Your kindness blessed me,
And You caressed me.

And, when I needed the body of Christ
To lift me up
And to encourage me so that my
Heart did not fail,

You gave me friendships,
Their presence cheered me.

And, even when I walked
Through the valley of the
Shadow of death and tears
Overflowed from my eyes down my cheeks,

Your touch, it healed me.
For, I believed You.

And, even now when I think
About all the many ways
In which you have blessed me,
So many ways I cannot count them all,

My heart, it thanks You.
And, gladness fills me.

    Really appreciated your poem, it actually expressed in many ways Marcia and I’s journey over the last year, and then the encouragement that comes from the Lord through the body of Christ. Really appreciated seeing you in Akron and the encouragement that was. Blessings
