I used to feel incapable of love,
but then You beckoned me, so I could see
just how the ever constant enemy
held tight, his grasp around me, like a glove.
You teach me how a life is based on love,
and help me cast out insecurities;
You mold me into who I’m supposed to be,
instilling joy in each new day begun.
Your care is constant with me, always showing
and teaching me Your ever-lasting words.
From faithfulness, there comes a certain knowing
beyond what I have learned, or what I’ve heard;
You emanate within me, Jesus – glowing,
and in that love, I’ll always rest assured…
‘As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.
If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love.
I have told you this so that joy may be in you,
and that your joy may be complete.’
