My First Love
by Nicole R. Jack
The Lord is my first love.
He is the one I dreamed of as a child.
The one I wanted to be close to; the one I wanted to please
As I grew somehow I went into sin.
I was drawn away into things the Lord did not approve of.
As a result I became lost, empty and unhappy.
When by the grace of the Lord, I realized I hated sin and
Wanted to depart from it;
The Lord drew me to Himself by the power of the Holy Spirit.
I then surrendered ruler ship of my life into his loving care.
Jesus plucked me out of the miry clay, washed me in his
Precious blood; He promised never to leave me nor forsake me.
And I believe Him.
I can now rejoice in the Lord.
For He has given me the garment of praise to replace the robe of mourning.
In His presence is fullness of joy.
And so I have returned fully to the Lord.
Back into the loving embrace of my first love.
Forever to stand at his side conforming to His will
Throughout all eternity.
