Poetic Inspirations and Practical Applications for Blissful Living

My Heart Beats for You, Lord


 (Send as an Inspirational Christian e~card!)

The soft breeze dances in my hair,

The sun sparkles in the lake;

I feel Your love for me, Lord,

My spirit You awake.

Refreshing are these waters,

As Living Water You share;

Your love is sweeter than life,

Precious beyond compare.

My Jesus, I see You shining,

You come on clouds Above;

Exposed is Your precious heart,

Revealing the flame of love.

How I love You, my Lord,

My heart beats only for You;

You are the Meaning of my life,

The Reason for all I do.

I do not deserve Your love,

Yea, only a sinner am I;

Yet You love me so,

For me You chose to die.

Arms outstretched on the Cross,

As You shed Your blood for me;

I outstretch my arms now, Lord,

As I am Yours for eternity.

Take me, Beloved Master,

Lift me in Your arms so strong;

Do You feel my heart beat for You?

With You alone I belong.

Your eyes brighter than the sky,

Your voice sweeter than symphony,

My one desire in life, Jesus,

Is to bring You eternal glory.

Yours forever is my heart,

I live for You and Your will;

When I see You in Heaven,

My heart will sing for You still.

For You are the Son shining,

You reign high on clouds Above;

Beating is Your precious heart,

The flame of eternal love.


Baptize me in Your love, Lord,

In the Living Water You share;

Your love is sweeter than life,

Precious beyond compare.

As the breeze dances in my hair,

Your Son-light sparkles in the lake,

I feel my heart beat for You, Jesus,

My heart is Yours to take.

    Dear Sister in Christ Caroline Gavin,greetings in our Lord Jesus Christ(ALPHA AND OMEGA).I regard your poem of “MY HEART BEATS FOR YOU,LORD”like a canticle of Saint Paul,the Apostle, to the Ephesians1;3-10.As he start “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus,who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessings in the heavenly places,and the following verses up to ten.
    Once again thank you for Prayers,best wishes and blessings in my ministry,this is very encouraging,stay blessed.Frankly speaking Discipleship in Spreading the Kingdom of God needs a collaboration/joint venture as you see one body with different organs/joints work together,so I am very happy to hear from you we work as a team in Jesus Christ’s vineyard,may God bless ours and of others efforts via Purposeful Pathway to spread His Kingdom here on earth and finally to enjoy forever in heaven.
