Poem: God’s love is like…

By Melissa McLaughlin

God’s love is a rushing waterfall.

Steadfast cleansing refreshing

Carrying life onward and forever


God’s love is like downy snow.

Effervescent, emanating light

holy pure ever-fresh

Endless design and delight.

God’s love is a daffodil.

Announcing life after winter’s cold death.

Undaunted by nipping winds or packed earth.

The dawning season heralded with golden glory.

God’s love is like the rising sun.

Faithful radiance, new every morning

Strokes and hues of amber shades never seen before.

God’s love is fierce and fiery as the mother tiger.

Jealous ferocious courageous

Untamed passion

Throwing herself between the enemy and her family

Protecting her young from harm

with her very life.

God’s love is Jesus.

God’s love brought pain to His heart.

Where the Rose

became a thorn

that pierced His own head.

Heaven’s Perfection

absorbed sin’s shadow

Paying the price

for the sinners He loved.

God’s love is like that.

Like no other.

A question for you, dear readers… How do you describe God’s love?

This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. ~1 John 3:16

  1. A glorious Truth when least expected! The beauty of what’s present even when not noticed! Amen🕊️✝️🙌

  2. That is such a beautiful poem, Melissa. Your comparisons are are profound.
    I plan to read this over and over so I can grad all you have said.

    God’s love to me is like my beating heart. It is always there…when I feel it and when I don’t. Both give me life. I cannot live without my beating heart or God’s love. My beating heart gives me life here on earth, but God’s love will give me life eternal.
    I thank God for His unending love.

    • Mary Anne, what a powerful analogy. I love it! Your description made me think of the sweet hymn, “I Need Thee Every Hour.”
      I need that beating heart like I need God’s love- every hour of every day. Sometimes I forget how dependent I am on God’s power and love. He is a good, good Father! The Lord bless you and your family, Mary Anne.

  3. Just BEAUTIFUL. I’m reading Job in the Bible right now, and I’m at the part when God finally speaks. Your poem reminds me of some of his words…. “Have you entered the storehouses of the snow or seen the storehouses of the hail, which I reserve for times of trouble, for days of war and battle? What is the way to the place where the lightning is dispersed, or the place where the east winds are scattered over the earth? Who cuts a channel for the torrents of rain, and a path for the thunderstorm, to water a land where no one lives, an uninhabited desert, to satisfy a desolate wasteland and make it sprout with grass?” Job 38:22-27 NIV

    God love, truly, is like no other.

    • So powerful, Jessica! Wow!
      When we try to pause and take in the immeasurable vastness and majesty of God, we are left speechless, like Job. Thank you for sharing these Scripture connections. God’s Word is incredible. God bless you as you receive His overwhelming love.

  4. This. Is. Beautiful. Melissa, the Lord has indeed gifted you. This poem is striking and something I plan to reread. The Lord’s love is vast.

    When God drew back His bow, He hit dead center the target of real love. Jesus’ heart was pierced for me and for you on Calvary’s cross. Hallelujah!
