My Journey to God

God’s Love

God’s love is something
that no one can explain.
We earn it by deep faith
and by sacrifice and pain.
It is eternal and unconditional,
we have only to endure and not stray.
Only we can destroy it
when we falter and lose our way.
God is patient and forgiving
even when we are forsaking.
He never fails or gives up
even though our hope is failing.
God’s love glows with beauty
as the brightest star
although his wondrous power appears
so out of reach and far.
He gives us many gifts
that mortals cannot understand.
It is the awesome truth
of God’s tender guiding hand.
