God, Thou Art Love

Good morning, dear friends!

I am so thankful for today and for God's mercies that are new every morning. As you start this new day, what are you thankful for? Please do tell ....

I found this poem today and just had to share it. What a special poem by Robert Browning! I hope you enjoy it too ....

God, Thou Art Love
     - Robert Browning

If I forget,
        Yet God remembers! If these hands of mine
Cease from their clinging, yet the hands Divine
        Hold me so firmly that I cannot fail;
And if sometimes I am too tired to call
        For Him to help me, then He reads the prayer
Unspoken in my heart, and lifts my care.

I dare not fear, since certainly I know
        That I am in God's keeping, shielded so
From all that else would harm, and in the hour
        Of stern temptation strengthened by His power;
I tread no path in life to Him unknown;
        I lift no burden, bear no pain, alone:
My soul is calm, sure hiding-place is found:
        The everlasting arms my life surround.

God, Thou art love! I build my faith on that,
        I know Thee Who has kept my path, and made
Light for me in the darkness, tempering sorrow
        So that it reaches me like a solemn joy;
It were too strange that I should doubt Thy love.
