My hope for you

Poetry speaks to our minds and hearts and is meant to communicate more than the sum of its words. It is an apt expression of our walk with the Lord. I encourage you to forward this link to those you love. I pray this poetry leads you into reflection and prayer but I also want to start a conversation. You, too, have something to share with others-not only in person, but also here. Your experience is yours to give away to build up and learn from others in the Body of Christ. Share the word that you hear, the experiences you have lived. We are all part of the New Evangelization.If you also want to contact me by email, feel free: genefirn@yahoo.com

The Seeker

in your depths
you seek to love and
be loved without
limits or endings-
the security of a union
whose acceptance and
self'-donation is a
dream of endless ecstasy
however
it is far more than
finite love can deliver-
in this life everything passes
restricted by your earthly boundaries only
imagination's limitless frontiers
extend fulfillment beyond its
confined expressions
but despite
all your searching
all your seeking
the Truth is that
it is I who seek you
it is for you that I hunger...
aware or not
self-absorbed or generous
trapped in sin or saint
proud or humble
bitter or thankful
hater or lover
enemy or friend
it is your heart I treasure
your love
for which I long-
in a Union
Infinite and Passionate
like Me
you question My veracity-
can this be True?
am I really like I say I am?
you think
does He Love me that way?
it cannot be
maybe for others but
not for me because in
your heart of hearts
you know your
weakness and poverty
secrets hidden from
everyone's eyes but Mine
but
I do not utter
empty words
rather
they express
My Tender Intention
the Truth of
who I Am
see
it was for you
I bore the burden
for you that
My Hands and Feet were nailed
My Heart pierced
Blood and Water flowing to
Wash your heart to
make it like Mine-
a testimony of
My Personal Love for you
as I looked
into your eyes
and said
I thirst for you
Come

Reflection/Discussion:
-Is "finite love" ultimately not fulfilling?  Why/not?
-How is the love of Jesus different than our love for one another?
-How are they related?
-Do you think people tend to question God's Love for them? Why/not?
-How can we receive His Love for us?
-What does it mean here that Jesus says "I thirst"?
-How is He calling you to respond to Him?
-How can you communicate this reality to others?
