True Love Waits

Photo by Rakicevic Nenad on

True love still waits even when we may fall,
And when we fail to answer to His loving call.

True love waits when we fall short time and time again,
Or become gravely entangled in the bondage of our sins.

True love waits in the dark of night while we are upon bended knee,
He leans in ever closer and attentive to hear our every plea.

True love waits when we let Him down; it’s our own words we break,
Love yet is faithful to fill our lungs with new breath when we wake.

True love waits and extends His abundant grace,
Hopeful that one day within us, His truth will take its place.

True love waits because He knows His promises will be fulfilled,
Soon, we will all behold Him as His splendorous glory is revealed.

True love waits. God forbid we let His grace abound.
Will we be caught with works undone and crosses down?

Love is patient.
Love is kind.
Love came to heal and save the blind.
Love will soon come back like a thief in the night.
Love will split the sky and shine His everlasting light.
True love has waited. However, Love’s wait will soon be done.
Still, we must ask ourselves if we’ll be ready when He comes.

True love has waited because He wants us to get it right.
So, He can bestow upon us His promise of everlasting life.

True love has waited. Beloved, one-day His wait will end.
And He shall be ready to decide which of us will make it in.

I am an educator, a wife of 24 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!
