His essence penetrates within infusing my core
His love infiltrates every fiber bringing peace
His sacrifice and the magnitude incomprehensible
His blood spilled for indiscretions washed me clean

His actions remain powerful significant and inspiring
His life reverberates and pulsates as my heart beats
His purity and holiness apparent as He became flesh
His compassion resonates and holds me captive in His arms

He protects me from chaff and tares that mingle with the wheat
His grace opened my eyes that visualize countless wonders
His hands create growth in which untrammeled trees thrive
He hones and maintains thoughts sitting silently in my heart

He provides sustenance and comfort as I listen to His voice
He maintains the garden of light while preordaining my steps
He shields the bitter taste of the world splashing in my face
He replaces the acidity with the sweet taste of everlasting Life


O Lord I give thanks for the sweet potent clarity of Your love

Simply beautiful! Wonderful truths to meditate on.

I love this!! Masterfully penned. This created so many images in my mind and helps me to remember that He is everything and in Him there is nothing that can compare to the sweetness of His presence and promises, His love and comfort, His mercy and grace. Taste and see that the Lord is good, good indeed! Praise the Lord!!

This is a powerful poem full of truths and splashes of hope and comfort. You did a nice job with the flow and being able to express so much in so few words.

I realize, it was a style choice not to use punctuation. I appreciate that the absence of commas and periods is a symbol of how God's love never stops or even pauses. However, I did struggle with some of the meaning that a comma would have helped. For example the first line was one I had to read several times until I realized I needed to pause after the word within.

I appreciate the difficulty in choosing between the two and respect your final choice as it will stay with me much longer than the thought that I had to reread a line or two. God's love does penetrate deep within us and it never, ever stops. How sweet is that? Very powerful indeed. Good job.

It isn't often that I re-read a poem and let the verse soak into my being, but I did that with this piece. It is so beautifully written and, most definitely, reflects the person of our Savior. Thank you!
