Time, how did I ever let you slip away; not knowing if you would ever afford my heart, the opportunity to sing about a love like this? The day I opened up my heart to Your love, was the day I came face to face; with Your amazing, breathtaking love. From that moment, Your love forever gripped my heart. The heavens opened, the light of Your love shone down; right into the depth of my soul. Within that very moment in time, my heart experienced a thousand years of love. Time kept moving, it was my heart that stood still; but how could Your love not feel like a thousand years? To a heart smitten by the beauty, a soul captivated by the presence; to You a thousand years, is but a moment in time. Your love met my heart, took my soul for a walk around heaven; my heart has never been the same!
Throughout the years I stood on my faith, made it the substance that undergirded my trust; that Your love would forever be, my firm foundation. But for the longest time I was foolishly taught to believe; in order to stay within Your good graces, I had to work really hard. Follow the steps, put in the time. Only to finally realize, that kind of faith; was based in legalism. All that truly made my faith, was legally blind; to the truth. Your love renewed my mind, day after day; You made the time, to wrap Your love securely around my heart. Time goes by so fast, if I wasn’t careful; I would have missed out on Your heart, as being the true blessing!
Father, my heart has come to the realization; that at first it was about believing. But then in time it should have shifted into excepting; that it’s not about what I do, but what You have already done. If I could turn back the hands of time, I would have truly realize. Forever held, is what Your love did; from that very first moment in time. And Your love will forever do so, even until the very end of time. Time heals all wounds, but time spent within Your heart; is time well spent within Your loving embrace. A love that makes a lasting impact, a heart that should truly be our everything. Your love has been working in and throughout my soul; preparing my heart, for a time such as this!
