Heaven's Promises

Source

Floating aloft

On gossamer wings,

It flutters by,

Lovely to behold.

Closer, closer...

I reach for it.

Fleeting away,

It is quickly

Gone from me,

Out of grasp.

Like a butterly,

Earthly delights

Tempt me

Until I am

Desperate

With yearning.

Why do I reach

For the perishable

When I already hold

Heaven’s promises

In my hand?

Oh my!

Why do I reach For the perishable When I already hold Heaven’s promises In my hand?

A timely reminder... why do I yearn for love? When love is what I am saturated in... His love!

Beautiful testimony of the inner struggle!!

Have a blessed day. Peace and fullness of His Love!
