VESPERS AT THE END OF THE SABBATH: Love ... Lifted me!




I offended Him!
He gave me His Peace!

I looked away from Him!
He offered me His Grace!

I ignored His Love!
He reached for me ... in Mercy!

I turned away from Him
And started to sink into the grave!

LOVE lifted me up!
Bright Light shone in the Darkness
LOVE comforted me -
And blanketed me with His Grace
Tied on with Hope
Trimmed well with Faith unto Glory
Sewn with the thread called Sacrifice
Laid out with Hands calloused and
Broken by cruel nails!
Face punctured and etched with His LOVE
Side riven through Great LOVE - Water of Life Blood pouring forth
Feet torn and holed out
With God's Eternal LOVE!

God's LOVE is Real
Rewarding
Sustaining
Uplifting
Concerned
Soul comforting and
Renewing ... me
Unto His Heavenly Glory!

God's LOVE is Abiding
And no devil can ever take it away!
