Loving people

You have taught me to love

To see things that I could not see before

To see people

Their needs

Their desire to be accepted

Their cry to be seen and be heard

The child in them crying out for help

A glimpse of what You see…

 

You see people

Behind the masks (figuratively and literally…)

Their fears

Their tears

Their hurt

Their pain

Their hopes

Their dreams

What matters to them…

Only You Lord can love us as we need to be loved

Your love never fails

Your love breaks the strongest of barriers

And opens up hearts of stone

To receive from you

Thirsty souls drink from Your fountains

My healer

Our healer and our God

Power and unfailing love belong to you

Mark 12:30-31 (ESV)

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”
