Love is Your Cover By Brenda Drake

            We live in a sinful, messed-up world.  No one is perfect and no one lives and loves perfectly.  God is love.  Jesus lived and loves perfectly.  When we are saved we still are not perfect but we are perfected by His work on the cross.  The Word of God gives us needed wisdom to learn how to walk in the footsteps of our Lord.  We have opportunity to ask for assistance making our requests in Jesus’ name.

Love is Your Cover

Love covers a multitude of sins.
It does not eagerly expose nor does it condone them.
God is love. He loved man so much|
He chose to die so He could their life touch.
In His death every sin and shame,
Every devilish plot was applied to His name.
He exposed sin on the tree and every debt paid,
So seeking hearts could be saved.
Saved from the penalty of sin’s price;
Saved so they could live as one with Christ.
Love forgives and restores with help from above,
Such is the power and ability of love.
Love turns the other cheek
And purposes to only good things speak.
Love sacrifices and places self, last.
Love reaches to the future refusing to turn back.
Love is not always mushy and soft to touch,
But love is strong and always willing to lift up.
Love the neighbor as yourself; do to others as you wish done to you.
If you practice love’s presence you must learn to forgive others and yourself too.
Love is always available; He is as close as a prayer.
Love is your cover, and is always willing to His love share.

1 Peter 4:8
And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves:
for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.

Mark 12:30-31
And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.  And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
