I marvel at the wonderful work of the Spirit that begins much sooner than we are aware. Little by little I think the realization and the wonder of the love of God sinks in, softening and preparing us to truly see the truth of the condition of our soul. At our repentance He rushes in to rescue and to save our soul.
The Touch Gentle
by Brenda Drake
When we are touched by the gentle presence above,
Our heart is moved by His awesome love.
He introduces Himself through the truth of a love so grand;
He chose to die to show us His Master plan.
Little by little He chips at our hard façade,
That entices us to discover the reality of God.
To see a love wider and deeper than the sea,
That’s span encompasses eternity.
Words fine and gentle lift us to the place;
To receive the benefit of His amazing grace.
The severed spirit is restored;
In the perfect peace, one with the Lord.
Silent accusations and the world’s loud threat,
Are placed at the feet Jesus to rest.
Circumstances must align with the will of God above.
He is the Author and Finisher of our love.
The heart is full of Him and the mind seldom strays for long;
For in Him and for Him your commitment is strong.
One day soon, with lamp tended you will see Jesus face to face.
Where you will forever enjoy and rest in His loving embrace.
Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.
