Hearing Jesus

Transformed by Love, His Word I hear

When I, His gift of grace accept;

This blessing makes His voice ring clear.

 

But struggle I to feel Him near

When chained by fear Him I reject;

Transformed by Love, His Word I hear.

 

Yet Jesus gives me ears to hear

As my heart opens to connect;

This blessing makes His voice ring clear.

 

As Love renews, turns me sincere

I ache His image to reflect;

Transformed by Love, His Word I hear.

 

No longer can I cling to fear

When God extends arms to perfect;

This blessing makes His voice ring clear.

 

As His intent to me appears,

In awe I weep, in deep respect;

Transformed by Love, His Word I hear,

This blessing makes His voice ring clear.

      And it is so exciting, this abiding in Him and Him abiding in us, isn't it?

  4. Whew, you are really good at this poetry writing stuff Susan. I could feel my center moving outside myself as I read this. My first thought was :What makes me pleased? and the answer was getting something for myself then the question was what will please me past my physical death and the answer was faith. So what should I focus on now – faith.

    1. Yes, Paul. And what more could we get for ourselves than God’s Love? So if we have faith now, His Love comes alive in us in so many ways.
