WHAT MY HEART KNOWS

Principles and figures,
Details and facts;
When it comes to information,
Very little lacks,
But what does my heart know?

 

Passages and verses,
Known line by line;
I have memorized Scripture well,
Treasured in my mind,
But what does my heart know?

 

The love of my Father,
His strength and grace?
His ever atentive presence
His warm embrace?
Does my heart know these things?

 

Jesus’ saving power,
The Prince of Peace,
Who is pleased to call me, “sister,”
Joy that does not cease;
Does my heart know these things?

 

Academic knowledge
Talents and skill
Are gifts from God to help us live,
But they don’t fulfill;
My heart must know the Lord.

 

To know his perfect ways,
His love for me;
The one in whom I live and move;
This is what feeds me;
My heart must know the Lord.

About lifehelps

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
