For Jesus Christ, For Whom I Am a Prisoner

I never knew the meaning of love
Until you filled my heart with your love

I never knew how beautiful you are
Until I gazed into the serenity of the moon
And sat with you in tranquil silence

I never knew how bright your truth was
Until the darkness of my life was dispelled
And the breath of your life was inhaled

I never believed in the promises of the saints
Until you revealed to me the beauty of salvation
And the sanctification of all who believe

I never knew how lost I was
Until you snatched me from the debris of sin
And laid me on your breast

I never knew how much you cared
Until I saw how much I hurt you with my actions
And saw the tears you had in your eyes for me

I never knew the beauty of the word
Until I met you headlong-in the Word
And knew you were made flesh to dwell among us

Though the days may be long gone
I know that they are but like an hour to you

Though the tears may sometimes fall
I know that you will wipe them away

Though I seek to justify these mercies
I know that I could never earn them

Because all you ask of me
Is that I simply accept you

And be drawn into the love of your mercies.
Because the one that I serve, the one that imprisons me
Has granted me a second stay in eternity

By Beatrice Ofwona "My writing is my calling and I use it to honor God."

Who Am I, Dear Jesus, If You Are Not?

Oh that I may know you more!
I hide in the shadow of your wings
Helpless and sometimes weary
Yet always in the knowledge
That it was finished at the cross
For I need not fear
And I need not weep
And I need not despair
Because in you
I find new hope,
Of a new life
For who am I if you are not?

I die daily
That I may let you be
Because I may be in the world
But I am not of it
In you I have found
Life of a new kind
Fulfilling,
Sometimes crushing
But its all for my good
That I may be more like you
Less like me
For who am I if you are not?

I am where I want to be
Outside of myself
I now cease to be
It is no longer about me
But more and more about you
Outside of my new self
I stagger in confusion
Lost and overcome
Because I must learn to let go
In you I find peace
Oh that I may know you more!
For who am I if you are not?
