I Thought I was Loving You
Reading and meditating in Your Word day and night
I thought I was in the light.
Fasting and in consistent prayer
With no need to fear,
Having Your armor to wear.
Yet when treated meanly......love began to slow.
I thought I was loving You.....only to find the test
Of loving You is really more than just reading and
Meditating in Your Word day and night....more than
Fasting and in consistent prayer.
I thought I was loving You then You visited me....
And just the awe of Your presence....Your Love
Exposed and up rooted all bitterness and unforgiveness.
I thought I was loving You but Your love is really tested
In hostile environments and in adversities!
I thought I was loving You....truth is I wasn't....but as
Your Love flows to me I feel it flowing out to all who
Have wronged me.....yes from Your river of Love.
Now I can really say I am loving You, for now I love
Those who do not love me and those who reject and despise.
Now I no longer say I thought I was loving You.
Thank You Lord for loving me even when I was not displaying
Your love and thought I was loving You!
