Love Divine

If the world chose to heed its old women,

And consider this love-poem I’ve penned…

Reveal that romance is hormonal crimson,

Nothing more than transient biology bend,

Desire to procreate defies logic and reason.

 

This is the true love-message I wish to send…

Possible love divine exists; Please, do listen!

Govern desire; to prevent the need to mend;

Sex, enjoy as open recreation and be bitten!

Caught! In jaws of natural consequences end.

 

Laws humans can’t change or have re-written;

Nature’s boundaries aren’t meant to rescind;

By respect do deliver divine love, pure linen!

Intimate relations a holy bond; purity defend!

Divine faithful love! Avoid empty lust demon!

      1. If it’s not self-expression it’s a lie but I don’t want to resort to another kind of lie, self-exaltation. I try to be honest and reach for universal truths that are greater than I. My husband says I’m a very complicated lady.:0)lol!

  1. As an “old woman” (a 62 year old great grandmother), I am often struck by how differently love and sexuality seems to me now, compared to when I was a younger woman. When I was young, I equated love to red hot fiery passion. And I was very badly burned as a result.

    Today, this is what love means to me (taken from 1 Corinthians 13, Amplified Bible):

    4 Love endures with patience and serenity, love is kind and thoughtful, and is not jealous or envious; love does not brag and is not proud or arrogant. 5 It is not rude; it is not self-seeking, it is not provoked [nor overly sensitive and easily angered]; it does not take into account a wrong endured. 6 It does not rejoice at injustice, but rejoices with the truth [when right and truth prevail]. 7 Love bears all things [regardless of what comes], believes all things [looking for the best in each one], hopes all things [remaining steadfast during difficult times], endures all things [without weakening]. 8 Love never fails [it never fades nor ends]….
    13 And now there remain: faith [abiding trust in God and His promises], hope [confident expectation of eternal salvation], love [unselfish love for others growing out of God’s love for me], these three [the choicest graces]; but the greatest of these is love.

  2. My favorite song to sing with our choir is “I Am Redeemed” by Phil Cross. The rather rousing ending talks about this. Divine love

    I am redeemed!
    By love divine
    Glory, glory Christ in mine
    He’s mine!
    All to Him, I now resign

    Jesus loosed the chains of sin and set me free
    Jesus loosed the chains of sin and set me free

    He set me freeeeeeeeeeeee!

    1. Human love is so different but we can adopt divine love when we choose to love others according to God’s definition, according to the Love that He is. It’s beyond comprehension. Love is God’s character…and I’m very thankful for His choosing to love me and set me free.:0)

  3. I saw some things in this which often, in my youth did puzzle me. Reference to natural laws. We have a tendency to obey them, drive wise, yet don’t ever question why they drive so….

    1. We don’t have the respect, I think, for the limits that nature puts on those drives. By science, we’ve learned to over-ride some of those limits and we push the limits even further. I think many young people are so removed from nature, they consider it little, until they’re caught in it. I’ve talked to children who were shocked to hear my husband and I were married before we had children. They are used to seeing the reverse, if they are blessed enough to have any family structure at all. Healthy boundaries are needed without them it’s just abuse.

  4. Yes! so true. So many words there are so right to life and love. So may people I would love to show your words too. But in reflection there would not be much reaction. Coming to know and feel God in my life now I can understand so much more
