God's love is like an island
In life's ocean vast and wide...
A peaceful, quiet shelter
From the restless, rising tide...
God's love is like an anchor
When the angry billows roll...
A mooring in the storms of life,
A stronghold for the soul
God's love is like a fortress
And we seek protection there
When the waves of tribulation
Seem to drown us in despair...
God's love is like a harbor
Where our souls
can find sweet rest
From the struggle and the tension
Of life's fast and futile quest...
God's love is like a beacon
Burning bright with faith and prayer
And through the changing scenes of life
We find a haven there!
True Love is not something we
"fall into" or "fall out of". The kind of love God tells us to show for others is not an event we simply wait for, nor is it an experience that happens to us. Love is what God commands us to do. Love is a responsibility. God is LOVE. If we do not have love, nothing else matters.
