Agape (A Poem)

Standard

by Nichole H. Stewart

Some days
I struggle
To put into words
The way my heart swells
At the thought of your love.

You SEE me

As no one else does
Or ever will…
Straight to
And through
My soul.
I am fully known
And you love me
Anyway
Freckles and flaws and all.

You FILL me

To completion
Shoring up
My empty spaces
Healing fast
My broken places
And You…
You
Make me
Whole..

You HEAR me

Each desperate prayer
Each unspoken plea
You are attuned
To the inner workings
Of my weary soul

And You
Abba…
My God
My Creator
My Father
You
My Master and King
You…
You deign
To respond!
In time
In wisdom
In light
And in love

You…
Your love…
It amazes me
It inspires me
It is my hope
It is my strength
It is the light
That guides me
Through the darkest nights
And reminds me
As the winds and waves of life
Rage and rail against me
That I am never alone
That You are with me always
And that in Your presence
I find joy
I find peace
I find a truer
Love
Than I have ever known
Or will ever know
Again.

You…

Jeremiah 31:3 – “The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying, ‘I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.'”

Nothing can separate us from our Father’s Love. (Romans 8:38-39)
