Kingdom of God

A house is just that
What we labor for
A place to live
And when it is finished
We move in
And the house becomes a home

Christ built a house
A place where he could live
He is finished and he is home

The house is only what it contains
And when love fills our home
It comes pouring out the doors and windows
Out into the streets and cities and countries

 

St. Luke 17:21

…for behold, the kingdom of God is within you.”

True Love

True love overcomes death

For death cannot separate two

Who are forever devoted

To each other

 

Not separated by death

But able to pass

Through death together

 

It is true love

Who passes

Through death

And returns to life

 

We sleep in death

Until awakened by love

Then we rise from the dead

 

Romans 8:35

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?”

 

Love

Our deepest desire

Is to be loved

But first

We must love

 

But falling in love

Is not for the faint of heart

But for the brave

Those not afraid

To get hurt

 

Because there is always

That chance

 

But the courageous

Dive in anyway

To experience love

 

So I dared

To love another

And have been hurt

Deeply

Though not by love

 

But by the one

I mistook for love

 

+++++++++++++

 

Love taught me

Everything it could be

 

But love also taught me

Everything it is not

 

St. Matthew 5:44

“But I say unto you, Love your enemies…”
