God's Love For Us--A Poem

Updated on October 17, 2017

Will I ever understand?
Can I even comprehend?
Will I ever believe?
Can I make this heart see?

Just how much You love me
Just how much You care
That no matter what,
You are always there.

Show me the way,
To Your love and grace.
Teach me to stay,
And to not run away.

I may not be ready, I may never be
But if You could show me
Just how to let go
I might be able to let Your love flow

I know it won't be easy
Or over in a night
But I'm in it for the long haul
And I'm ready to fight

I know it's a journey down a long road
With twists and turns at every go
But I'm willing to stick it out you will see
Because I've realized it's not just me

I want to understand
To be able to comprehend
I want to believe
To make this heart see

Just how special I am
The way You made me


Comprehending God's Love

I've realized that no one can ever fully comprehend God's love. If we could, it would not be as amazing or as powerful. That's what makes His love so special, so different. We can never fully understand or comprehend it. That doesn't mean that we cannot know anything. I think there are a lot of things that we can and do know about God's love, I just don't think it's possible to fully know everything. And I've realized now that I don't want to know either. I am okay with not knowing some things, because what I do know is enough. And with time God will always reveal more, when He knows that we are ready and can handle it. God never gives us more than we can handle, and for that I'm truly grateful.

I know that God has a purpose for all of us. Whether we believe it or not. God loved us so much that He sent His Son, so that He could have us forever. God's love for us was one worth dying for. God's self-giving love for us was His way of saying we are His, and no matter what, we cannot change that. No matter what we do/say, what we don't do, God will always love us, and He is just waiting for us to come back to Him. His love for us is unchanging, there is nothing that we can do or say that could ever change that. No matter how far we drift in the opposite direction, He is always waiting with open arms and an open heart for us to run back to Him.

God never said that following Him would be easy. In fact He says just the opposite. You may suffer, have pain, doubt, question, none of those are bad things. We may not like going through them, but when we get to the other side of whatever it is that we are going through, the joy is so much greater, and in my opinion well worth the trials that it took to get there.

God's Tough Love

God's love is a tough love. He requires a lot from His children. We suffer and experience pain and sorrow. However, nothing compares to the sorrow He endured sending His only Son to save us. He made the ultimate sacrifice in hopes that we would in turn look to Him with love and honor. He may love His children with a tough love, but it's truly a love worth dying for.

I've been thinking a lot the past couple of days about God's love and I do not think I know any more than I did when I started. I know 2012 will hold just as many if not more trials, suffering, and pain as 2011 did, but I know that God won't give me more than I can handle. And He will always be there, right by my side. To help and to hold me when I need Him. I believe in God's love and the power that it holds, because of who I am in Christ. But what's more, I believe in myself and the things that I can do for, with, and through God. Because I am His child and He made me special, beautiful, and different for a reason. Just as He made all of us special, beautiful, and different.

        Nice poem. It shows what many need to know...that one can come to God just as they are...there is no need to change. God will work with you and show you the way.

        Thank you for this. Tough love....hits us real hard but it's just what we need. After years of being successful...I am now struggling. Just yesterday, I was in line for 10 hours just to have a screening as flight attendant. I was praying real hard to God to finally give this to me....But still I was not successful. I wanted to drown myself in alcohol yesterday....but resisted. I am reaching this point that I am too tired to cry and just holding on to my last fiber of faith. As you have said, it won't be easy and it won't end overnight.

        Its so great to be reminded of God's love for me. Often times we think that our confidence in God is in our self righteousness and how much we can let go for His sake... Our confidence should be on how much we are loved by pir heavenly father. I dont know about you; I'd rarely done anything right, yet He loves me so dearly!
