Love is Patient: A Poem

Updated on January 30, 2013
Source

Silently, You wait for me every moment of the day,

Desiring me to converse with you, communicate in any way,

Usually other things seem so important, I lose You in the crowd,

Until a crisis springs upon me, Then I pray to You out loud,

Patiently, You love me still, Your arms are always reaching,

You accept even when I ignore, Your love is more than preaching,

Thank You for being everything even when I think I'm no one,

But to You I will forever be a child of the Eternal One.

      That's a good point. I knew about Job, but I'll have to catch up on reading in James. Thanks for sharing!

      Ebower: Re. patience, Job is a really good example of patience. James's epistle reminds readers of it.

      That is so true, MJFenn! He loves us in that way. We should attempt to love others with patience as He does with us.
