My Journey to God

Pure Love

So intimate our relationship,
You call me to come closer.
Even as I wake from deepest sleep,
My thoughts are with You.

Your gentle peace flows over me,
Filling the depth of my soul.
My heart is lifted up in prayer.
Your love surrounds me.

I am at a loss for words.
Perhaps it’s best to keep still,
To accept the pure love you offer,
My Lord and my King.
