Pursued by Love

l found love,
l was in love,
l trusted every word
l believed every syllable
l held on to every word said.

                            At times conversation frustrated me
                            l stood firm, l was in love
                            It was all make believe painted in black and white
                           Who was l to deny a fairy tale?

Now, true love found me
l sit drifting away lost in thought
Oh how He loves me
Even just as l am
He knows my thoughts
Longs to be in a relationship with me.

                            This is all l ever longed for
                             He listens and speaks to me
                            His words are true and come to pass
                            He has unending love

l should confess
l don't deserve this love,
l want to take Him at His word
But l fail
l walk away from Him
Though deeply l want to run to Him 
Safe in His arms
l want to stand on His unchanging word.
            l want and l need!

                                Help me take His word
                                with no doubt
                                with no fear
   How come l stumble at the true honest word
   How come l fail to embrace the real LOVE
   l need this love.
   l say yes.
Jeremiah 31:3 
The Lord has appeared of old to me saying, 
"Yes, l have loved you with an everlasting love;
Therefore with loving kindness l have drawn you"
