Let The Love Flow - Poetry

Recommended Posts

Oh how I think I can handle so much

 

When what I so need, is Your gentle touch

 

Seems like this life is over my head

 

And truly it is without what You’ve said

 

 

I need You every hour, my enemy fierce

 

Taking me down and bringing me tears

 

But You see it all and You have a plan

 

As I call out to You and reach for Your hand

 

 

There is a place so gentle and sweet

 

Where You come so near, I can feel Your heartbeat

 

You are my Maker, Lord above all

 

I belong to You and You catch my fall

 

 

No one can have that place inside me

 

It belongs to You, but the enemies coveting

 

They want to dethrone You as the King of my heart

 

Taking my mind away and from You tear apart

 

 

How foolish he is , the devil our foe

 

It’s You he contends with and covers our soul

 

When we step away and fail to stay close

 

The injuries come from the wounds and the blows

 

 

You catch every tear, oh Lover of our soul

 

And begin the work quickly to again make us whole

 

This life is a battle, a game for the throne

 

That place in our heart that You call Your own

 

 

Help us fall down at Your feet and stay there

 

Where we are protected and deeply Your care

 

Wanting to guide us and wisdom to give

 

Keeping us safe and helping us live

 

 

Preparing a place for us, oh yes You are

 

More beautiful than imagined, that outshines the stars

 

But oh we must walk with You every day

 

It’s our only survival, to do things Your way

 

 

Gently bend down Lord, in love scoop me up

 

Heal all the wounds and again fill my cup

 

Connected again, the enemy fails

 

Because I’m Your child and You paid with those nails

 

 

Oh let the love flow and the stress fall away

 

As I realize that You Lord are always here to stay

 

Never apart do we have to be

 

You paid the price for me to be free

 

 

I love You!

Well written and heartfelt. The only suggestion I can think of is "repairing" a few rhymes (e.g. soul and foe).
