Faithful Still

Nothing matches the joy
You give
The freedom of heart
To fully live.

Where once I was bereft,
Thought left for dead
You were faithful still.
 
You answered my flailings
With continued grace
Brought me to the next place

And I’m beyond amazed.

Where I wouldn’t give
You pushed me.
When I wouldn’t listen
You wooed.

I don’t deserve this blessedness
This state of being at peace
Finding that-though I doubted –

You were saving me.

I Love You, Jesus.

Undone

Can this be real?
I ask with a smile.
It feels good now.
Great even
To come out and play.

Is this the product
Of acting on faith?
Sure seems that way.
Gee, I may try this
Again sometime. Soon.

That unrequited feeling?
I finally understand it.
Why it happens.
I think things
But there’s no return.

There’s no return
With no doing,
No saying –
Remaining silent
When it’s on your heart.

The thing is undone.
Still unchallenged.
Unseen, unheard,
Unappreciated.
Useless.

What’s the point?

Lord give me faith
To go again
At any moment.
Without hesitation
Put my heart out there.

Sure it’s shaky ground
At first.
But requited love,
Love You return,
Is worth it in spades.
