Loving Him: A Poem

Loving Him
By Bethany A. Bell


My mama says people used to
Be in love with God
They were in the act of loving Him
They basked in the Glory of
God’s grace and forgiveness
When they prayed, they were praying
When they worshipped, they were worshipping
When they sang, they were singing
For Him

My mama says now we only
Worship and pray and sing
You love God, but are not in love with Him
You love
What you can get
A home
A heart
A feeling of security, stability, in an
ever changing world
You love what you get out of God
You don’t truly love

Bethany is a sophomore at North Atlanta High School and an active member of Wieuca’s Student Ministry.
