Valuable — A Poem

I wrote this to share with the poets at dVerse Poets Pub for Open Link Night No. 31 today.

Valuable

More precious than all the golden rings
of all the princes and earthly kings
the Son of God came from above
to show us His great and holy love

Nothing else do we really need
when His love we deeply heed
All else He provides when we ask
To share His love is our only task

What is most valuable in this life?
Where do we turn in times of strife?
Not wealth or gold or shiny things
but the precious love of the King of kings

About Linda Kruschke

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. What greater love . . . no love can compare, or even come near, the love of God for sinful mankind. No love could hold a candle to the brilliance of the love of the Saviour as He bore the wrath of His Father as He paid the penalty for my sins.

    >> “What is most valuable in this life?”
    May my heart response always be ‘my relationship with my loving Father’ and may my life show this to those I meet.

    What an amazing God!

    Why does living in those times always make us cling to Him more? I wish I was more faithful than that, but at least I’m resting in His peace tonight. Praise God. And thanks for the reminder. : )

    • Linda, I do not know why we do that. If only we had more faith in the good times, then maybe we’d have fewer times of strife. I’m just so glad He is always there no matter what. Peace, Linda
