The Bible is a love letter from God to His children. The book of Song of Solomon is a perfect example of a love letter from God. It is known for being the most romantic book in the Bible. This book represents a love between a husband and his wife. Song of Solomon 8:6-7 beautifully portrays a love so deep that nothing can quench it. It says,
Place me like a seal over your heart,
like a seal on your arm;
for love is as strong as death,
its jealousy unyielding as the grave.
It burns like blazing fire,
like a mighty flame.
Many waters cannot quench love;
rivers cannot sweep it away.
If one were to give
all the wealth of one’s house for love,
it would be utterly scorned.
Wow! Imagine these words spoken over you! These words would leave you awe-struck and speechless. The truth is, we hear these words from God every day of every moment of our lives. Do we hear God whispering in our ear that He loves us?
God gave up everything for us to have a relationship with Him. The greatest love story of all is Jesus dying on the cross for our sins. The story of the cross represents forgiveness, grace, mercy, and redemption. God proves His love for us by sacrificing His son.
Now, the question is, how do we express our love to God? Do we take Him for granted or do we thank Him for His unconditional love. A few years ago, I wrote a poem about what it means to me to have God in my life. In this poem, I declare who God is through His love and grace. I tell about how He has changed my life forever. It is a love letter to God from me. It is called, “God Is My Everything.”
I would lose hope and live in defeat.
I would never see victories in my life, because I would not
have the strength to complete the journey.
My flesh would always get the best of me.
I would never know what true love felt like.
Life would be a wreck, and I would live of this world lost and alone.
I have hope and live in victory!
I see miracles every day!
I experience love that cannot be explained!
I enjoy life to the fullest
I see beauty in everything I touch!
GOD HELPS ME TO…
Listen more and talk less
Love more and judge less
Trust more and worry less
Is like no other!
I am honored that He calls me His Child!
THE GOD OF THE UNIVERSE…
Knows me by name!
Loves me unconditionally!
Cares about my every need!
Sees my dreams!
AND, NO MATTER WHAT, GOD IS ALWAYS THERE FOR ME!
I am nothing without Him!
He is my everything!
It is because of Him that I can get up every morning,
and live in hope that, with God, I can conquer
whatever comes my way!
NOW, THAT IS SOMETHING TO SHOUT ABOUT!!!
