If We Only Had a Heart

If we only had a heart,

We wouldn’t look on as the innocent die,

Or turn a deaf ear as children torn from parent’s arms cry.

If we only had a heart,

We would see human and not race,

We’d understand that because of Our Father everyone has a place.

If we only had a heart,

We’d bombard the Heavens with prayers as one voice,

We’d understand that a life of holiness is really our only choice.

If we only had a heart,

We wouldn’t rejoice in one another’s sorrow,

Because we would understand that our own lives could easily change tomorrow.

If we only had a heart we wouldn’t be afraid to take a stand,

Or be driven by hidden agendas behind outstretched greedy hands.

If we only had a heart,

We wouldn’t argue about when life begins,

For we would be more concerned about the judgement in the end.

If we only had a heart,

We would know to lose the world is to live,

And that for our salvation did the Father freely give.

If we only had a heart,

It would not be hard to see,

There is a need to repent and change but it starts with you in me.

If we had a heart.

I am an educator, a wife of 22 years, and mother of three beautiful children. I have taught the word of God to all ages and love to share it in creative ways. I've always had a passion for written expression. Over the years, I have documented my personal thoughts and prayers. Poems, devotionals, worship songs, and more have come from my life experiences. Now, I am ready to share them with the hope that lives and hearts will be changed as well as greatly blessed. I am flawed but striving for perfection in Christ. Although I have fallen short of the glory of God, I am forgiven. I am loved with an everlasting love. I am FREE!
