The Love of Jesus (a poem by Angela)

The Love of Jesus

God’s love expressed to us through Jesus really is so amazing.

We really should try it sometime.

And not just for ourselves,

But we should try loving others

As Jesus loves us

And we should try giving others

The same love that Jesus gives to us

Love that conquers every fear

Love that covers every sin

Love that heals every disease

Love that cancels every curse

Love that erases all harm

Love that feeds everyone hungry

Love that quenches every thirst

Love that never fails

Love that does not accuse

Love that believes the best

Love that sees the best

Love that ignores the worst

Love that overcomes every hindrance

Love that frees us to love

Love that encourages us to love

Love that lets us be loved

Love that bears every burden

Love that lifts

Love that empowers

Love that is true

Love that is for me and you

(by Angela Dingler 10/12/14 around 4a.m. after praying and thinking about how good the Lord is to me and my family and how overwhelming His goodness is to us, far more than we deserve.. and how He has taught me to trust Him and to let go of all pain and bitterness and anger as best as I can … just keep trusting and keep hoping and keep believing… things may not appear as promised, they may not be as promised right here right now.. but keep believing!! Keep seeking Him! And share His love and He has given it to me!)

This blog is for anyone who wants to know more about Jesus and His love and how faith in Him plays out in real life application. Hello, we are Jerry and Angela and we are two fools for Christ. We have decided to make our lives totally surrendered to Jesus in response to His love and His gift of salvation. We are in our early 40′s and we have two children together and [Angela has] an older daughter that is now an adult. We have been married to each other for going on ten years. We surrendered our lives to the Lord together in 2010 and have been growing in that relationship with Him and each other since that time. We both accepted salvation and made professions of faith earlier in our lives, but did not make Him Lord and Savior until 2010. At that time we realized that trying to walk in our own strength and our own ways was useless and empty and had led us to another rock bottom experience. We humbly turned our lives over to Jesus and have been seeking Him with all that we are ever since. That does not mean that we have become perfect. That does not mean that we have not sinned again. That does not mean that we have not had trouble or trials or storms since that time. What this means is that we are growing, we are learning, we are becoming more loving and compassionate and forgiving. We want to share our faith with our readers. We want to share our growth process and transformation with you. We wish to encourage you and lift you.
