This Pursuit Of Love
I love You LORD and
I need Your strength, Your help.
But I long for something more:
Someone to have and to hold.
There is one I want,
So what is wrong with loving them,
In pursuing this dream of bliss?
Of everything I’ve wanted.
Why would this be taken,
Denied my right to be happy and full.
Complete in another and each other.
Fully devoted to our sum.
But could it be you instead,
Whom I’m to partner with forever?
Being fully content in You alone,
And needless of more.
Then where does love fit in,
With another of my kind: believable?
Seen with eyes and with heart, and felt.
Whose words I hear.
So what of my dream,
In Your plans of life for me?
How can I tell what’s wrong from right,
In this pursuit of love?
Do I love the idea of marriage and having a family more than I do God? Or am I willing to sacrifice it if necessary?
