GETTING TO KNOW YOU

WATER 11

ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

I want to know you, Lord,

I want to feel your arms around me,

Comforting,

Protecting,

Loving me.

I long for your presence in my life,

Your Word connects me to you,

Your Passion shows me how important I am to you,

Your resurrection assures me,

That I will live forever with you.

 

You come to me when most I need you,

Yet I know that you are always there,

When the problems of life get in the way,

When only you can intercede on my behalf,

When my sins overwhelm me,

When my guilt eats away at my heart,

You are always there.,

I can try to hide from you, but still you see me,

You are so much a part of me, I can’t escape,

Our connection is solid, because of you,

 

Such a love is so hard to comprehend,

Because we don’t know how to love that way,

There is nothing like it.

As  grapes connect to the vine,

You are the vine and  I draw life from you,

You nourish me daily with your Word,

Through it, we become one,

Help me to know you better every day,

So that when my final day comes,

I will be ready for you.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

        Doubt is when the mind tries to take over…you do know we are beyond mind. Your words are seeped in love, how can they go wrong😀👍. This year it was not a very nice winter… but I adore spring and summer here.
