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.
