Loving Father

As my Loving God shines down on me

He embraces me with hugs when I need Him most.

I am engulfed with peace when He is near

His expectations are formed in my heart.

Sinfulness can disrupt our relationship

Yet He is always forgiving.

Strict rules become like desires for me

I strive to please him; trying not to disappoint.

He doesn’t demand or use power to control me

Gentle nudges work just perfectly.

Allowing my choices to unfold before me

My mistakes never end with shaming;

Always forgiving.

Touching my heart to heal my sorrow

Feeling my pain to ease my worry

Depending on Him never ends in regret.

Hope, Grace and Mercy are what He offers

My loving God shines down on me.

    Beautifully stated, Anne. I especially like the “gentle nudges” reminder.
