And This Is Love {A Compelling Love Letter Poem}

The love of God compels us.
Pressing in even when we try to fight Him.
Run away.
Scream He step away and not come near
because we’re used to
rejection and to leave us be.

But still …
He pursues.


He pursues us to the deepest deep
and highest heights.
We make Him prove Himself
time and again.
Tantrums we throw,
but He,
He does not turn away.
He pursues.
And this is love

It is love that refuses
to let go.
This IS Love.
Changing our hearts to move
toward encompassing love and grace,
God pursues us.
The love of God does not relent.

His response is always invitational.
“Come, come to Love.
Come to forgiveness.
Come to grace.
Come to hope.
Come and believe.”


Do God the honor of receiving and
accepting the Invitation.
He is not selling us a bill of goods.
It is Hi nature to love without condition.
Love motivates Him.
God’s desire is for you.
Stop fighting.
Stop running.
Stop wrestling.
Come home to Love.

He is the calm in the storm
raging all around us.
With Him there is
always a new beginning.
It is not a burden to love Him.
The love of God compels us.

Love is calling out to you.
