Valuable — A Poem
I wrote this to share with the poets at dVerse Poets Pub for Open Link Night No. 31 today.
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
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!
What an amazing God, indeed! His love is better than anything I could ever imagine. 🙂 Peace, Linda
Love is everything! Nice capture!
nice capture of true love
“Where do we turn in times of strife….”
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
most valuable! Thanks! Need to be reminded of this more often!
You can almost always find reminders of the value of God’s love here on my blog! 🙂 Peace, Linda
Will keep that in mind 🙂 Thanks Linda 🙂
Beautiful poem, Linda! And so very true! Blessings!
Thank you, Linda! So wonderful about HIM!
Lovely spin on Valentines day 🙂
This sounded like a song to me, beautiful Linda! 🙂 Thank you for writing and sharing and loving your King. God bless you!
Deb, Too bad I can’t write music! 🙂 I’m glad you liked it. Peace, Linda

Just flew off the tongue, as the rhymes were spun. So very true too. Wonderfully done!
Pat, Thanks for the wonderful poetic comment! 🙂 Peace, Linda
Lovely! And true!
The greatest love of all…and perhaps divine intervention…posting on Love day! Wonderful share!
…and his love is still there when no one talks about valentines any more..smiles
So true! His love is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. I didn’t even think about it being Valentine’s Day when I wrote this. 😉 Peace, Linda
Thanks for sharing that great poem. God has really blessed you with a gift. Connie
smiles…yes his love is far more valuable than any treasure we can find here….
