God’s Unchanging Love

God’s Unchanging Love by Grover Cannon  Whether your day starts off good or bad, Whether you season in life is happy or sad, You will always have God’s unchanging love.  In the best of times, in the worst of times, You will always have God’s unchanging love.  There are times when you feel like you can spread your wings  And fly on the love that looms in the air, There are times in life when you're certain  You won’t make it through the dark despair,  But you will always have God’s unchanging love.   When your heart feels as if it’s about to cave in When your soul is tormented from deep within, When the mistakes from your past don’t want you to live, You will always have God’s unchanging love.   No one can separate you from God’s unchanging love.

Grover CannonGrover Cannon spent more than a decade running from God with his finger in the air, trying to find happiness through outlaw motorcycle gangs, strip clubs, and heavy drinking. He was contemplating pulling the trigger on his own life when God got ahold of him, showing him how much he was loved even in the midst of his rebellion. Today, Grover preaches the love of Christ to everyone he meets and has one of the most personal relationships with Jesus I’ve ever witnessed.

Dear Child: A Poetic Look at the Unfailing Love of God

Dear child, can you trust me enough to finally let go?  Can you trust me even when your heart still bleeds from the wounds your fears have left?  Can you trust me through your waves of pain? As the tears begin to flow 
and your eyes turn dim, can you trust me enough to listen then?  To bow your heart, and quiet your head…  I love you child. Will you trust my sovereign hand?  You see my book and think it’s only words. But if you will read it, it will come to life 
within your heart… and your soul. It will speak to your pain and quiet the screams inside your head.  If you will only reach out to me… Put your trust in me…  You may only see angry waves and the rolling tide, but know that I AM the one who calms the raging storm.  Yes I—the One who called the mountains to be—am telling you that I love you.  You can trust in me. Not just with your words, but with your life.  You can trust me enough to hand me your fears—even the ones that heap shame upon you from the hidden places in your heart.  I know of them already, and yet I still love you.  You cannot overcome your fears on your own.  But I can.  I love you, Dear Child…  God

Always Grace: A Poem about Being Loved in the Midst of Our Failures.

Grover CannonI’d like to introduce you all to my friend, and our newest contributor, Grover Cannon.

Grover spent more than a decade running from God with his finger in the air, trying to find happiness through outlaw motorcycle gangs, strip clubs, and heavy drinking. He was contemplating pulling the trigger on his own life when God got ahold of him, showing him how much he was loved even in the midst of his rebellion. Today, Grover preaches the love of Christ to everyone he meets and has one of the most personal relationships with Jesus I’ve ever witnessed.

Grover processes his walk with God through some of the most raw and heart-felt poetry I’ve read. Recently, I asked him if he would be willing to share some of these poems with all of you. As you can see, he agreed.

So, each month, I will post a new poem by Grover. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. In fact, if you really enjoy a certain poem, just click the image at the bottom and you will be able to print your own PDF poster to hang up wherever you wish.

Always Grace

Can you live with out His grace?
Can you walk with out His peace?
Can you understand one letter of His written Word
without first knowing His work on the cross?
What He has done for you…
The way He has loved you…
The freedom He has created you to walk in…

Do you know how to give it over?
Do you know how to turn to God and give in?
Can you close your eyes, take a breath, and submit?

We focus so hard on works, striving, struggling…
just trying to breathe for one more step.
We work so hard.
Constantly falling
Always stumbling
Forever failing
Letting our logic follow our pride
down the rabbit trails of struggle and strife.

We get so lost along the way.
We just can’t understand how it is possible
to even consider success.

It’s so easy to believe that we must do
We need to work
We need to strive
We need to keep pounding our heads
against the walls until we get it right.

We just can’t comprehend His love through our failures,
through our lack of success.
We feel Him slipping away.
We know His anger and doom are pending,
moving like a storm in the sky because
we never get it right.

If we could only see His grace for what it really is.
His love that gently embraces us in the night.
The way He sees our failures yet still wraps His arms around us.

He loves us so much.

We so need desperately to change our opinion of Abba God
from the angry, punishing, pissed-off father to the true view:

A God who is broken…
Weeping…
Forever saying I love you.
Because He does love you…
And will love you…
Standing by your side…

Always.
