"If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain" ~ Emily Dickinson


Jesus cried out,
on the cross,
"It is finished!"
for the lost.

For those who know,
not where they stand,
can now enter,
the Holy Land.

And gaze upon,
his perfect face,
full of mercy,
full of grace.

All they need,
is to believe,
and they will never,
ever leave.

From God's strong arms,
who drew them in,
Even when they were,
still in sin.

Oh, God's love!
Who can fathom?
It will fill,
the deepest chasm.

In every hard,
cold, broken heart,
Christ will give you,
a brand new start!


The author's comments:
I think one of the hardest things for us as humans to understand is God's love. We think of love in our sense, and everything in our sense is imperfect. Our surrounding, situations, and of course ourselves, are far from being perfect.
But God is perfect, and everything about him, including his love. His love is so perfect that he sacrificed His only son, so that he could take care of the punishment for our sins so we can be in fellowship with Him. How amazing that our God is willing to go to such great lengths for our imperfect selves! We can't fully understand it, or Him, but we can still love Him for it, in our own, imperfect way. =)
