Love of Life - Some Thoughts, a Prayer to God

Updated on January 13, 2015

Seagulls and Sandcastles On the Beach

In Huntington Beach, California.  My son had been playing in the sand, and then was off again.  I love views like this, simple but sweet.

For God, From My Heart

True love
true You
whatever in the world, would my heart ever do

If it had not been for Your love
the Source, the kind that comes from above
we would not be.

So what inspired You exactly?
From nothing, to what we now see?
You are amazing, incredible, God.
How can it all be?

When life first hits, then we grow and learn
and in our aging we might be allowed to discern
the truths of You that are unending
that delve off to beyond the blue.

My most precious thing ever,
that would be you.
Precious Father God
Spirit from above come near
And Jesus who I hold so dear.
More so, every day. It can't possibly be true,
yet I see that it is, through and through.

Just like Your beautiful creation,
and that we may even be remotely a part....
How can I ever stop the soaring of my heart,
and why would I ever try?
You are love, life, and never will die.

Eternity past and into the future
We have nary a glimpse of what will be
Like a tiny star compared to a sunlit sea
Let us know you more and more, the wonder of life and your gifts.
Let those that don't, wonder all the more.

Your mercy and grace, and love most of all,
may draw them hither, from afar, any that may hear the call.

Please oh please, if any might desire, even a bit
please let that Eternal fire be lit.
Eyes may see, and souls set free
to soar also unending with the Source of all.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart, forever more.
I know not how to fully repay
but with my heart overwhelmed for You and life.
Let it be a tiny bit I can give back to You
the Reason that I can live, never to fade away,

From now until forever more
let my heart soar with Yours and bring you any ounce of joy that I might
My love, and the Lord of my life, the one I adore.

Thank You, Writers on HubPages - You are an Inspiration!

Many writers on HubPages pour out their thoughts and hearts in all kinds of ways. This is not something I normally do, though you may see it on occasion in my posts to the forums. Its still pretty rare then. I don't normally lay out my heart in words like this. Even so, this seems a poor expression, in my opinion about how I really feel about God and Life and others. Still, its so neat to read from others, like LadyFiddler, when she wrote her Flowers are blooming FOREVER, hub. Both she and other writers here, have really touched my heart!

So I just got out the notepad, and wrote this, rather quickly. I am no poet, and would never claim to be. I just wrote it. Perhaps it will speak to someone someday, and or let you in a little on how I view some things. I share also a couple of simple photos that I have taken, as nature is something I love, and that I think we have because of God. I hope no one feels put off at all by my open and honest admissions here, as I know so many disagree. I don't mind if you do, and thank you for stopping by.

To those that share their hearts through various verse, thank you, as you have inspired me along with what I share here! Looking forward to reading so much more.

      What a beautiful song to our Lord God.

      You have expressed so poignantly and vividly. No doubt He hears these words and feels your thankfulness.

      It is so cold be a song

      Perhaps someone who really needs to find our Lord will read these and allow Him to slip into his or her life.

      Hello LadyFiddler, good morning to you as well! Thank you for your kind words. This is totally new for me here, to share like that.

      I also believe that God is not an unjust God, just bringing wrath. I think he has revealed through various ways to humanity. Its so interesting reading the dialogue about that though, as some think he is hiding. It seems like he allows us a large part, with our hearts and minds, to desire to want to seek or not. I know many disagree, and that is ok to talk about I think.

      As for false doctrine, that is a big problem I think. It causes many to fall away, or just not want what they perceive something to be, about God and this world. Genuine hearts, is what I think God is interested in, true seekers, and those that keep to the simpler and beautiful message of Jesus. While not always pleasant, because it includes addressing what ultimately harms us and separates us from God, and what we all struggle with ongoing, until one day it won't be such a struggle. Just like a doctor that we want to be honest with what is hurting our bodies, it includes the bad news of what is wrong, and it may anger some. Twisting up a message from one who knows, to confuse or distort, doesn't ultimately help, and can cause more harm. So I appreciate you bringing it up.

      Thank you for stopping by, I loved your poem about flowers, and agree they will be blooming forever. Have a beautiful day!

      Hi oceansnsunsets a pleasant Good Morning to you and yours.

      Well i am startled and also happy that you have included me in your hub. I am also glad to know that my hub inspired you and for someone not being a poet as you've said. You did a wonderful job i must say.

      Yes God must pour out His Spirit like on the day of Pentecost world wide, signs, wonders and miracles "Greater works that these shall ye also do" God is not an unjust God to just bring wrath , he always send His word in-front declaring the truth so that all men will know who is the Lord of Host. Many people are in religion but still groping in darkness because they have been thought to live any wishy washy lives, live in sin but just make sure and bring your tithes and offerings. Isn't it sad!!! After the Holy Ghost falls like on the day of Pentecost then God will pour out His wrath so mankind cannot say he was unjust or unfair. All the world will know who He is.

      There are a lot of souls that are in bondage under false doctrine, adulterous preachers etc. God must save these genuine hearts.

      Have a bless day :)
