A Ramblers' Love Story: My first Love

I’m in Love
And here is my love story
It all started when I was young
My mom kept reminding me to love this man
She told me things that made my heart leap for joy
I felt something but I didn’t know what love was
I was too young to understand anyway

I’m sure you are thinking
Could my mother be bad
Why would she allow me to fall in love so young
Well you think wrong
If you’ve met this man, you would fall in love too
Anyone would and Anyone can

He is different
He never gives me everything I want
But he makes sure I get everything I need
Weird you may think
But everytime I’m alone and sad
He is always there to guide and love me
What more could I ask for

The funniest thing is this
My mum told me that this man gave himself for me
For me, when I wasn’t even born
Who does that?
He’s one of a kind, Ideal, perfect
His Name is signed on the cover of my heart.

My first Love, My living bread
He is the song I sing when I lie in bed
He is the light that makes me shine all day
His love for me has no bound
I am his and he is mine

“Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent”
 (Revelation 2:4-5). 

Does your love belong to the Lord Jesus first? Has He absolute priority in your life? Does everything else in your life come after Him? Do you really try to listen carefully when He wants to speak to you through His Word in the Bible, and have true fellowship with Him in this way? Do you love the Lord Jesus above all else, even if you have lost everything that was dear to you, when for some reason you can no longer work or cannot move? Have you learned to love Him before all else?

Let me say again, our best, our first, love for Jesus, must come before everything else. If we let anything else come before our first love, then it is no longer the first love, but the second, or even the third. 

Unstructured poem

I live in abundance of grace
Don’t even have to pick up my pace
Coz in God I don't got to earn
But open my heart and willing to learn
I know the world thinks I'm crazy
Even some friends think it’s lazy
I know he’s the God of all history
I don’t care if to them it’s mystery
To love something so amazing
But I’m just gonna keep praising

You see the world promotes self
Whereas my bible tells me itself
I’m righteous not by what I DO
But by the blood that cleaned me full
Why then should I walk in darkness?
When Jesus brought me to awareness
So when people tell me to stop talking
Of why my life is so working
I just wanna scream more and tell them
I’m only here because I confessed him

So if you’ve got a problem with me declaring
That christ is the king I confide in
I’m not even gonna judge you or crucify you
I’d rather give you the word to see through
You know life in the kingdom is wisdom
Not a religion with division.
We are all one body in Christ
That’s the only way to unite
So if I’m happy I’m a redeem
That’s coz of a God so supreme.
