Amazing Love


Psalm 18:1 I will love thee my LORD, my strength.


I love God so much, I just want to say

No one and nothing can take me away!


God’s love is infinite and deeper than the sea

His provisions and promises are forever with me!


He is my Shepherd, I shall not want or fear

I know He will never leave and is always near!


His Word is as honey and balm for my soul

To be His servant is my wish and fondest goal!


His wings cover me in good times and bad

He wipes away all my tears when I am sad!


He lifts me up when I am on the ground

He speaks to me gently with hardly a sound!


His commandments I gladly and readily obey

I listen to everything all that He has to say!


His Son Jesus Christ is my loving King

Lord of lords above all and everything!


My health may fail and my flesh grow old

But my heart will be His forever let it be told!


Eternal rewards will come for those who trust

Where streets are gold and nothing will rust!


The Lamb’s book of life my name shall be

Where I will spend eternity and be free!


I will bow down and exalt my King

I will cheer clap rejoice and sing!


Hallelujah there His light does shine

He will call me home and He will be mine! 


Matt 22:37 Jesus said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment.”

  2. Fabulous and truly blessed! AMEN!

  3. The theme of the message at church this past weekend was Luke 10:18-20. Jesus said to his disciples that he has given us authority over all the power of the enemy, but do not rejoice in this, “that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.” Welcome to the writing team.

    • Thank You John, I am feeling blessed to be in company of such writers as yourself, and this ministry of God.
      That was the theme at our church too. …”rejoice that our names are written in heaven.” Amen!
      God Bless~

  4. I know your poem is well written and purposeful in factual expressions of what we we know from scripture so I don’t want to take away from this.
    But I heard someone make an illustration about the streets being of gold. We can’t even imagine how beautiful Heaven has to be including this example being revealed in the Bible.
    It was somewhat funny but it can be a look inside the heart of some believers who hold unto the things of this world and not focused on what is the most beautiful thing about Heaven and that is our Lord.
    A man of wealth left this world and entered heaven’s gate. His pockets were wade down and he was asked by an angel what he had in his pockets. The man responded that he brought some of his hard earned wealth with Him. The angel told him to empty his pockets. He pulls out the gold and the angel said, “Why are you carrying around pavement”?
    Hopefully we don’t see our lives lived here to be like that. Sometimes a humorous message gets the point across.
    Your words spoke out how we should view life with a longing for Heaven to be part of God’s kingdom.

    • Hi Cora,
      Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to respond.
      Yes, I agree that sometimes humor can go a long way in getting out a message of importance! Humor has a place in getting through to our minds wrapping up what is being said in an easy and meaningful way.
      Sorry to be redundant, but I really love your illustrations!
      You should be writing your articles in this ministry too!
      God Bless~
