Sweet Surrender

Who will love me
when I’m not in my right mind,
when I’m not able
to love you in return?

Who will hear me,
when I have nothing—
worth listening to;
when I don’t even understand,
what others say and do?

Who will care for me
when I’m not able
to care for myself—
or not even someone else?

It could occur today
or maybe in the future,
but why would I worry—
isn’t this what I signed up for?
Didn’t Jesus say:
“I will love you forever”.

“I am giving you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, so you too are to love one another. By this everyone will know that you are My disciples, if you have love and unselfish concern for one another.” Bible, John 13:34-35

“Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.” Matthew 6:34

“I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. If I am to go on living in the body, this will mean fruitful labor for me. Yet what shall I choose? I do not know! I am torn between the two: I desire to depart and be with Christ, which is better by far; but it is more necessary for you that I remain in the body.” Philippians 1:20-24
