Love changes me from doubtful to hopeful From down and out – to up in the clouds From worried and anxious to happy and content From lost in the sorrow To inspired by the moments of grace Love changes me from grief-stricken To pleased and jubilant From dark and dreary to light and cheery From lost in the pain to grateful for the gain From the shadows of disgust To the enthusiasm of wanderlust Love changes me from angry and bound by pride To humble and willing to provide For others more than myself, giving with a open spirit Willing to accept whatever may come With a open heart, in a spirit of sweet love Love changes me from tense and agitated To relaxed amid the glorious goodness Of a life filled with fulfillment and beauty Breathtaking rapture that satisfies the soul Leaves the heart full of hope And keeps the soul growing surer Of a love that is God’s promise of eternity Love changes me from thankless and unpleasant To grateful for the faith that gives me Second chances, joy within and complete assurance That I have His spirit to confide in Speak to in prayer that will sustain and satisfy Sincerely bless me with gratitude Love changes me from one who is lost To someone who knows the glory of hearts Broken by conviction and accepted by His gift Of freedom and salvation, the grace That keeps me filled with a spirit who has been Born again, lifted, accepted By the God who created me and gave to me His one and only Son, Jesus – my soul’s promise For pure unconditional love Through faith, my heart is glorifying In the love that changed me And gave me… the chance to enter heaven’s gate

Quite a statement openly with your love of the Lord! Great for you in what seems like an age that instead of living in hope, we live in fear? All we think about is Covid? And not about the Lord? Wise verses! Pangie
