Let Me Love Like You Lord

image

I asked the Lord to let me love as He loved.
He agreed.
First He showed me what He sees.
Humanity at our finest—
Loving,
Laughing,
Sharing,
Hoping,
Caring.
Thankful.
Humanity at our worst—
Hating,
Judging,
Murdering,
Abusing,
Distrusting,
Ungrateful.
Then He allowed me to hear—
Joy,
Children laughing,
Praises,
I love you’s
Determination,
Celebration.
Followed by these—
Sorrow,
Weeping,
Cursing,
Hating,
Giving up,
Loss of all hope.
My heart lay shredded at His feet.
So flooded by the wide range of humanity’s living,
I didn’t know what to go with first.
Lord, I cried, how do You do this?
He replied, “Like this. ”
And He gathered me in His arms,
And held me to His heart.
And loved.
