Is it enough to know that GOD loves you,
when others withhold their affections?
We seem to want them to love us more,
in spite of our blatant defections.
As I have thought about this moot question
I acknowledge we have such a need,
to be loved and accepted by those in our lives
but should we hold them to such a strong creed?
If we pin all our hopes and dreams upon others,
demanding they meet our criteria,
it places such burdens on them to please us
which in turn makes them all the more wearier.
So, is it enough to know that GOD loves you,
should others their affections withhold?
Yes and Amen! Is my hearty conclusion
for on His limitless love I am sold!
