togetherA seed does not grow
unless the Lord says so

A babe isn’t born
unless the Father makes it so

And the sun doesn’t shine
unless the Creator says it’s time

so it is with love 

For human love lasts
only as long as our fickle hearts
stay warm and hear a song
so love often breaks the ties
we make without Him

For the Promise-Keeper and Lover True
can bind two hearts through the storm, through the wind
through the desert, and back again
to the waterfall of His perfect love

enduring loveSo love not with your eyes
or your unsteady heart
for they won’t get you far

Until the Promise-Keeper is your Heart-Taker
and the Lover of your Soul has control
of all your dreams
all your hopes
and all of your love


Only He can bind two hearts together that only death can part
cause Love True can keep the two close Him and close at heart

A ring’s never-ending circle
is only a symbol of His love
that enables us to say,
“I won’t leave you, babe
because it’s not just our love
but a cord of three strands that enables us to stand”

He will enable us to hold His hand
as we walk together hand-in-hand

    This poem is so beautiful. I want to receive the Lover of my soul completely. I want to release all control to Him. When I see Him in control, I won’t feel so disappointed or let down, because I will understand Gods love is bigger and He is in charge of my life. The lover of my soulcan not abandon me!

      Jill, I agree! I think in a lot of ways our lives are the story of Hosea 2:15 with Jesus telling us over and over again throughout our situations and circumstances, “I will make your Valley of Achor (trouble) into a door of hope.” Oftentimes we make our own valleys of trouble by going to other lovers and other things we think will supply what only Jesus can. May we continue on in abandoning of our lesser lovers and embracing our Only Lover True!
