Love’s Got It Covered

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

I had a teeny, tiny cut 
On my ring fingertip.
And my, how such a little wound
Can be so sensitive!
For even just a little bump
Could irritate that sore.
And thinking ‘bout it, course, could make it
Hurt just that much more.
I finally grabbed a Band-Aid and
I covered up that spot.
And though it didn’t disappear,
It really helped a lot.
And that’s the way some heart-wounds are,
When we let God’s love reign.
His love can cover many wounds,
And soothe away the pain.
So if, today, you’ve got an open
Wound deep in your heart,
Why not let God’s love bandage it,
And let the healing start?
God sees the wounds and knows your pain;
And wants what’s best for you.
So let Him bind them with His love –
It’s what He longs to do.
“Hatred stirs up conflict,
but love covers over all wrongs.”
Proverbs 10:12 NIV
