A Poem by: Carole L. Haines

The Love of God is as constant as the Sunrise

Each morning it finds its Vestibule

rising at the Summons of God

hastening to its place of splendor

reflecting on the clouds, oceans, lakes and rivers

changing colors with every passing moment.

Nothing can stop the rhythm of its rising

The Love of God is irrepressible, pursuing us relentlessly

His kindness leads us to repentance, turning us around

Gently guiding us like a flock of sheep,

tending our rebellious wounds, festering with regrets

His love does not depend on our performance,

It’s not fickle like the audience of men

The Love of God has chosen us as His focus of affection

Not because of who we are, but simply Because He is love

His love cost the greatest price, but we did not have to pay it

His love was paid for by Himself, by His Son

His love cost Him everything, it costs us our belief

He calls us to believe, to trust, to follow, to hold steady

To let Him be our Guide, Our Lord, Our Reason

Yes, the Love of God is steady as the rising and setting of the Sun

And I rise each morning knowing I am loved

May God's Truth prevail and Love triumph, where we have failed. Amen
