I Push Away…Do You See Me?

…"I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore I have drawn you with lovingkindness. Jeremiah 31:3

In my shame I run from you to hide what is going on in my heart. The pain, the hurt, the sorrow. I wonder how long you will stay?

Do you see what’s going on inside me? When will you turn and walk away?

I push you away but inside I pray that you will still love me.

Have you grown weary and tired? Do you look at me and say it’s enough? How long will your love endure?

I find that You will not let me hide. I can not run away. You pursue me out of your love, you will not relent.

Your love is everlasting. I am forgiven, and free. I can dwell with you forever. You will not leave me or forsake me. Your love for me reaches to the sky.

My flesh wants to run from you in my doubt and shame. But, I will turn and fall on my face before you. I have no other place to go. I have no love that is greater.

You offer safety, a refuge for my insecurities. Your faithfulness shows me your great love.

How long will you love me? You will love me for all eternity.

Who will separate us from the love of Christ ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword …I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Rom 8:35,38,39

  1. This sounded like a Psalm. Very beautifully written.
    RE your comment on my blog. How sweet of you to befriend the homeless woman in Florida and to continue to pray for her. I know she is blessed because of it.


Leave me some joy...
