Knowing I Belong to You - Poem

My heart swells.

It grows with a joy that

Cannot be confined.

A joy so measureless and

Only of the purest kind.

My heart beats faster with Your every Word

And with each Word

My excitement does climb.

I love You so much.

For me You gave so much.

Knowing You are mine gives me this joy.

You make me happy.

I belong to You.

You are mine.

To be loved and cherished by You

Is so precious and utterly sublime.

Your love is unlike any I have before known.

You know me and still want me as Your very own.

I know my place is with You,

Within the safety of Your embrace.

Your presence gives me reason to smile.

May it always be that

I enjoy being Thine.

A great reminder. How blessed we are to belong to Christ. When we were children we sang a song that began:

'Now I belong to Jesus,

Jesus belongs to me,

Not for the years of time alone,

But for eternity."
