I WANT TO KNOW WHAT LOVE IS

The deepest craving of the heart

Is to discover the depth of love,

To know and feel it with intimacy

Where it simply is enough.

To really know its origin

And as to how it came to be;

To discover the power behind its inception

Where profound joy is felt and seen.

Where its fullness with its wholesome touch

Is to be wrapped around our heart,

And to satisfy every desire and craving

Where we cannot live apart.

The beauty of its magnitude

With its entirety as well,

Ignites our heart and soul forever

Where peace and faithfulness it spells.

It’s sincere, pure and it’s true

When it emanates from its source;

It is divine and filled with gratitude

Where integrity is endorsed.

He has existed from eternity

And for eternity He will live;

He’s an all-consuming fire

Where our Father loves to give.

It took three nails and one plank

For forgiveness to be spelt,

When the epitome of love Himself

Our sins on Him were felt.

Because when love is demonstrated

It is sacrificial and it serves,

And when God’s love is poured on us

It is definitely undeserved.

Although He’s pure and without fault

He decided nevertheless,

To give us Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior

Since love only gives His best.

(C) P.B. 2022

“Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  Love never fails.”  1 Corinthians 13:4-8

“For our God is a consuming fire.”  Hebrews 12:29

“Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.”  John 15:13
