A Glance Behind to the Present

When very young I asked my daddy

“Do you love me?”

Without reservation he answered back,

“I love you inside,

But expect no more”.

As I grew I listened to words ‘I love you’

So I gave and gave what no one else would,

But I expected no more.

One day I invited the Lord in my heart;

He showed me a love from the Father’s heart.

Showed me His son and the  death he died;

I was so full when He dwelt inside,

But still, I expected no more.

I went off to learn of the Father’s will;

With great hope and joy I felt fulfilled

But soon daddy’s words came louder still,

And I  expected no more.

I have come to understand

That every good thing is from God’s hand

And good is decided not by me,

For God  sees what I cannot see.

The pain given me as a child,

Though undeserved, no justice given

Carved out a hole that made the house

That Christ would live in.

My expectations, big or small

God always goes beyond them all.

Looking back over my  years

Through all the times of joy and tears,

I see His faithfulness come through

And I can expect no less than grace for me or you.
