loversA Poem by maddy
this poem talks about my struggle realizing that God is my one true lover and secndary lovers were only sitractions
I have had lovers of deep
They promised satisfaction
They promised fulfilment and joy to me
In the end i received neither
The fantasy ended
I would sit in chairs flooded with tears of wonder and guilt, it was all i had attended
I wondered how there could be love when it made me feel broken
I wondered where there could be a such thing when this was all unspoken
I couldn’t believe because i felt
How was there a lover that could fulfill me when i was left empty?
I searched for my joy in every place
Every corner every crack.
Thinking that just one could satisfy
I had no one - guilt was my alibi
Nothing would gratify
I was only isolated
Nowhere to turn, nothing or no one could keep me satisfied
I felt unsubstantiated
But my lovers were only distractions
They were masks to hide from me the main
I had met a lover who came in the moment He knew i needed it most
His name is Jesus, The man of heavenly hosts
This lover was like no other,
No. this was different. This lover had a name that i could call out
And he would respond
But not with enticing vanity or desire
But this lover called out with love from who he was
I found satisfaction in this lover like no other
He was different, he loved me enough to recover me
Little did i know this lover had chased me down
He chased me down through the roars of the sea, when i pursued every other lover, He still wrecked me with his mercy
This kind of love doesn’t exist i thought
How can i contain this
As i had cried on the floor He strained my emptiness
I felt the chains fall and i was embraced with readiness
My new lover, my beloved is a lover of my soul
He taught me how to trust him, He showed me the way
And although a few time’s i was lead astray,
My lover had grace that allowed me to turn away.
Jesus is His name. Jesus is name.
He is my beloved and He is my satisfaction.
What waters can quench this kind of love?
The deepness of this love was only achieved through my desire to know Him
This satisfaction rose up in me
My sin only showed me that it will never fulfill you if it breaks God’s heart
This journey of finding my one true love was winding
But he met me and love was awakened
Now i was unshaken
I am the bride. He is my groom.
He longs for our dance because this is the greatest of all romance
Your beloved calls and waits patiently at the table
He wants to use you and make you whole
You will shift the culture around you
Your life is now beyond your control
Come enter His presence
Experience the lover
The other lovers are false, but i have found the one that is true.
Lay it down for your King, for your pursuit
He’s your lover and he only will satisfy, no substitute.
Awake awake oh love
Awake awake oh bride
We aren’t disqualified because now we are identified
I’ve experienced other lovers
But it’s all just vanity
Then i encountered your son, encountered his love,And it transformed me.
