April 05, 2011 (experience true love)

joy of my heart

“O blessed Jesus, Your love is wonderful!
It is the admiration, joy and song of glorified saints.
The experimental sense of Your love on earth
sweetens the bitterness of life
and disarms death of all its terrors!
It was love which moved You to bow the heavens,
to come down and sojourn on earth,
to humble Yourself,
to take on You the form of a servant,
and become obedient onto death,
even the death of the cross!
You pitied me in my lost estate.
You sought and found me when I sought You not.
You spoke peace to me in the day of my distress,
when the clouds of guilt and darkness
hung heavy on my soul
and I was brought to the borders of despair.
You have borne with all my weakness,
corrected my mistakes,
restored me from my wanderings,
and healed my backslidings.
May Your loving kindness be ever before my eyes
to induce me to walk in Your truth.
May Your love be the daily theme of my meditations,
and the constant joy of my heart!”
- John Fawcett

“He loved us not because we are lovable,
but because He is love.”
- C.S. Lewis
