Meditation – February 2012

 We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us!

But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.

1 Corinthians 13 v 12-13 MSG

Turn thoughts to Love




Brimming the Eye

Warming the Heart

Lifting the Head

Steeling the Will

To be the better version

To live knowingly

To stir courage

To fight for right

Seeking peace

In all else

To dwell upon that Love

At every opportunity

Seek God

He is your First Love


Who first Loved You

Cradled You in Heart

Cherished You in thought

Confirmed You with a vow

TogetherLove stronger

Love strongest

Like no Human love

His improves

Expanding the heart

To soar with

Highest love

To settle long with

Deepest Love

To live forever with

Longest Love





Veritable Love

Only then

Can any other love

Be truly worthwhile
