Unstoppable Emotion

In reading Genesis 29, a deal was made with Rachel’s father that Jacob would work for him for seven years in return for being able to marry Rachel. The seven years only seemed like a few days because of Jacob’s love for her. This poem was inspired by this thought of the power found in this unstoppable emotion.

Step Ahead

When love takes over,
There is inspiration
With much to look forward to
And so much elation.

Knowing there is a reward.
An impetus to work hard;
Making us feel high
And the days just fly by.

Constantly reminded
Of an amazing opportunity.
Aware of the reward;
Feeling a strong unity.

Love is the emotion
That becomes unstoppable;
Things once impossible,
Suddenly become possible.

So surrender your life;
Dare to make a difference;
Set your sights on a new path
The path to significance.

Moved by the greatest love;
A love beyond measure;
Revealed in His Son;
More valuable than treasure.
