Captured By Love

 Clothed in love by faith in You,
And through it all I’m made brand new.
Petitions, pleadings, and praises – a
Triad of trust; treasured graces.
Under Your watch care, loving arms,
Remind me I’m held safe from alarms.
Enduring kindness You display,
Divine maker, I am Your clay.
Because You love and set me free,
Yesterday’s thoughts are filled with glee.
Yeshua, yearning your guiding hand,
Offer pure worship with life’s expand.
Until you come again, I will remain
Resting in You, Your Word ingrained.
Let’s be enraptured in His love,
Overcome darkness herein-above.
Vexed no more by evil’s ploys,
Extended hope now a joyful noise.

Walking in love is rewarding, for love is action that nourishes the soul. And God’s heart is to work all things to our good as we cooperate with Him. “And we know that all that happens to us is working for our good if we love God and are fitting into His plans” Romans 8:28 (TLB).

As we trust Him out of our deep love, He instructs us in how to abide. So, we become focused on what it means to walk in love, as Christ exemplified. “Anyone who says he is a Christian should live as Christ did” I John 2:6 (TLB).

Someone is waiting to receive His love from you today, how will you respond?
