Worth Watering: He loves me despite myself

Worth Watering: He loves me despite myself

This blog entry is from a sister website - Worth Watering. In this poem, Ms. Mimi talks about her relationship with God, how He has touched her life and her relationship with Him. I love the creativity, energy and passion Ms. Mimi puts into her poetry and I just thought you might just like to check it out as well!

Here is an excerpt from her poem:

He loves me despite myself

That is what I love about him
I have strayed, played, have been negligent in my treatment of him
Yet, whenever I call, he answers
I hang my heavy head.
Without questioning he forgets
each irresponsible thing I've said or done

He's the one.

Thank you so much Sonya for posting this! I am so honored. You made my day.

I think as we develop our relationships, we need to keep in mind that God is first!

I just loved this poem! It reminded me so vividly of when I first 'fell in love' with God. When He was all I thought about, all I wanted to think about, and I spent hour after hour with only Him. It was wonderful! I only hope I will always remember to hold Him in the same high esteem I did when I first got to know Him.

Keep up the good work! (And let me know when your first book of poems is coming out...)
