I live because of him

May 7, 2012
By Anonymous

Each morning that I awake, I greet the Lord with a smile.

Joy overfills my heart with his love that’s unexplainable.

I used to search for his love with only my eyes,

But soon realized love can’t be seen but be felt.

He was by my very side when I felt alone,

He held my hand tightly because he would never let go,

All that time, I had blamed him

for bad things that happened in life

When really these were just experiences

that would make me so much more stronger.

And now I do my best to live for him,

For he willingly sacrificed his life for me.

To go through so much suffering and pain to die,

That is nowhere near the concept of my understanding.

I cannot fathom His love for me and everyone else.

But His love is so profound and runs so deep,

And because I live, and because he loves me,

I whole-heartedly give my life to Him.

I needed to write a poem for my Language Arts project. I chose to write a lyric poem but I did'nt know what about. Then I thought, why not about God and his amazing love.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

thank you so much for reading it

I'm going to smile and make you think I'm happy, I'm going to laugh, so you don't see me cry, I'm going to let you go in style, and even if it kills me - I'm going to smile.~Anonymous

I can relate to this, I love it. :)

"People take love like its a four letter word or just a phrase that you tell people or your friends all the time. But in reality love is much bigger than a merely phrase or 4 letter word. Instead love is a genuine promise or covenant to that special person."-Daniel Mathia
