He Held Me Against Him

Loved by one who loved me so, he promised me the moon.
Love was so kind instead of cruel, how could this be so soon?
He asks to be my partner in life and the one who rules my world.
What a gift for him (more like a trophy) to have me for his girl.
Yet God would enter and convict my heart of a sinful life.
I had too much to work on to become any man’s wife.
And when I shared with my love the need for God in our lives to be,
The love who loved me so left me and held it all against me.

Loved by one who loved me so, he too promised me the moon.
Love so kind instead of cruel, how could this again be so soon?
He asks to be my partner in life and the one who rules my world.
What a gift for him (more like a trophy) to have me for “his” girl.
Yet God would enter again and judge my heart for a sinful life.
I still had too much to work on to be a man’s wife.
And when I shared with my love the need for God in our lives to be,
The love who loved me so left me too and held it all against me.

Loved by one who really loved me so, he loved to share God’s moon.
Love so dedicated to God as well, came from our God none too soon.
He said that God had joined us to serve together in this world,
Worshiping individually and that I was his God given girl.
God would again approach me “Remove all sin from your life.”
My love said, “Let us BOTH be clean and Holy, you ARE to be my wife.”
For once I shared my need for God, and found a love for God in him.
The love who really loved me so, held God in his heart and me against him.

    This is beautiful! I can relate to this poem because of the beauty love can be when molded and shaped by the hand of the Lord. There is no love compared to the one God designs and leads. 💗
