Faith’s Passion

Yeshua, you’re my only One,

Your heart is whose I crave.

I want to know you more each day,

I am your humble slave.


I study everything you say,

It’s you for whom I yearn.

Your words have meaning, depth, import,

It’s those I care to learn.


As Spirit plants his fruitfulness

To which I aspire,

I press close into knowing you;

You light my heart’s desire.


Your love awakens love in me.

For more of you I long;

To share the grace you offer up

And sing your mercy’s song.


Each day my fervor grows for you,

This fascinating thirst

That only you can quench until

In your love I’m immersed.


This ardor causes open hands;

My doing it is not.

The generosity is yours,

Yet it is what I’ve sought.


My cup does overflow with grace,

Your promises assured.

You never fail to lift me up,

Of that I’ve seen and heard.


Yet it’s never in the seeing

My faith’s passion holds.

It’s in the felt invisible

Your love I do behold.

  2. Susan, I just read your comment over at my blog, Petals. This poem of yours popped right out at me, for it is Yeshua who has walked with me all my life, and that is the name I know him by. I will not put a label on myself, for Yeshua did not as well. I am. I am Love. I am Light. I am Peace. I am One with God. So if you wanted to ask me via email if I am a Christian, my answer is I am That I Am, and nothing more. I will not put a label on me that man has created. This poem touched me deeply, very deeply and I really thank you for expressing what is in my Heart. I respect everyone, including you, and I honor what you believe in, I honor who you are. And yes, I am a Peacemaker. With Love, Amy


    1. Thank you for this generous and encouraging comment, Amy.

      Actually, my question was, would you be willing to sell a print of your heron? I would love to frame it and hang it on my wall as the lovely reminder I mentioned on your blog. Please let me know, would you? 🙂


      1. Susan, please forgive me for misunderstanding. I am just so exhausted from saving one of our precious cats’ lives, and I jumped to the wrong conclusion. Some have come against me due to the label thing. I will email you and talk to you when I am more rested. Absolutely I would be willing to sell you a print of this heron. I am so touched I am crying. I will write you Monday, OK? Again, I really ask your forgiveness. I am just about dropping. Bless you! Love, Amy
