Poetry- His Love Never Fails

I’ve seen brighter lights
and better days.
A witness to miracles
in a devastating haze.
I’ve drowned in my sorrow,
slept into my fear.
Watched the unknown become known,
and knew God was here.
I’ve seen death approach,
then watched it pass right through.
I’ve fallen on my knees in prayer,
knowing what God can do.
Felt tears escape swollen eyes
when it was the last thing I wanted to do.
You’ve held me up,
and carried my broken soul.
You’ve chased me down
when I wanted to go.
Your hands were demanding
when I wanted nothing to do with you.
They clamped to my heart
until I turned back to you,
I ran with hopelessness,
you ran further than I could go.
Met me in my weakness
Filled me with love and hope.
When life became unbearable
you made it something I could face.
Though I questioned every move,
you settled securely in the empty space.
Deep in the crevices,
you filled them all.
With strength and perseverance,
you refused to let me fall.
I know all you’ve done,
and what you continue to do.
I know that life goes on today
because I’m not me without you.
Your love has sought me out
and found me in my lost.
Built up this broken vessel,
freed me at the greatest cost.
Thank you for this journey,
For saving me as I am.
Thank you, Jesus.
Savior, Redeemer.
My eternal friend.
