Without God's Love... I Am Nothing

Without God’s Love…  I Am Nothing!


Though I may speak with tongues

 of angels and men…

Without God’s love, I am simply empty within.


I become as sounding brass

 and a tinkling cymbal.

In God’s kingdom, I would not be instrumental.


Though I may have the gift of prophecy

 and mysteries untold…

Without God’s love, I am just

 simply growing old.


Though I may have the faith to move

 a mighty mountain…

Without God’s love, I am simply

 an “empty fountain.”


Though I may attempt to do

 good and feed the poor…

Without God’s love, there’s nothing

worth living for!


His love suffers long, and is very patient and kind.

It is everlasting and will endure the test of time.


His love is not rude nor is easily provoked…

It doesn’t seek evil, nor is unequally yoked.


His love bears, hopes and endures all things.

It rejoices in whatever a good report brings.


It never fails, where prophecies and

 Knowledge shall pass away.

His love will encourage you in

 what you do and say.


There remains faith, hope and a special

 gift from above.

This is an eternal gift that we call his love.


Won’t you accept his gift and start believing?

This special gift…  YOU too can be receiving!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
