“All The Love and Its Endure”, a poem by Linda Willows (God’s Glory, Grace, Joy)

The only reason that we wake
is for God’s Glory, for all Loves’ sake.
Not to linger, nor to grieve,
in the shadows of life’s mortal weave.

We joy in the beauty, we soak in the Light,
The Cause that makes us walk upright.
For all the Love and Its Endure,
His Grace does pierce throughout the night.

The reason bearing all heart’s care
unearths from wearing mercy’s share,
Not to hold or to gift an unknown,
but Lord, to let such Love be shown.

We joy in the Beauty, we soak in the Light,
The Cause that makes us walk upright.
For all the Love and It’s Endure,
His Grace does pierce throughout the night.

Here from the blessing in the Spirit of Grace
Love brightens the day, in the dawn’s birthplace.
We rise in joy and wake to walk free
called by His Glory from the forever decree.

1 Peter 5:10 —And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.

Romans 5:5 —and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

1 Peter 3-6 –Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,  to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials,
