Everything

(From my E100 series of poems)

Romans 8

Everything.
You gave everything,
So that nothing
Could take me from Your love.

Everything.
You gave everything,
So that all things
Could serve me in Your love.

Everything.
You gave everything,
So that no power
Could stand against Your love.

Everything.
You gave everything,
So that all power
Would bow before Your love.

Everything.
You gave everything,
So that no one
Could sever me from love.
Could sever me from You.

You gave,
Everything.

    Everything.
    You gave everything,
    So that no one
    Could sever me from love.
    Could sever me from You.

    I needed that.
    I know it but it is good to reinforce it in a new way.
    thank you
