Love Letter to God: #2

Holy Father,

I thought I knew
But I really haven’t grasped
The magnitude of who
You want me to be.

I am poor and needy
In the eyes of those who look on
But in You I am rich,
Destined for eternity.

I’m not afraid of what they say
Or of what they withhold
I can see through the lies
They want me to believe.

The truth is
You said the day will come
I would suffer
And be treated badly.

Thank you, Lord, for Your love
And faithfulness,
For the future crown
You have reserved for me.

You are the First and Last
The Beginning and the End
Many don’t know yet
But they will know You as our One and Only.

Your Beloved

Revelation 2:8-11 (NIRV)

“Here is what I command you to write to the church in Smyrna.

Here are the words of Jesus, who is the First and the Last. He is the one who died and came to life again. He says,

‘I know that you suffer and are poor. But you are rich! Some people say they are Jews but are not. I know that their words are evil. Their worship comes from Satan. Don’t be afraid of what you are going to suffer. I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you. You will be treated badly for ten days. Be faithful, even if it means you must die. Then I will give you life as your crown of victory.

‘Whoever has ears should listen to what the Holy Spirit says to the churches. Here is what I will do for anyone who has victory over sin. I will not let that person be hurt at all by the second death.’
