Glee greetings!

I hope this musing finds you well and happy. Today, I want to share with you a poem that I wrote 5 years ago. It is titled “I Love You This Much” and it is about my personal experience of being rescued by God from a hopeless situation.

The poem is inspired by the biblical story of Jonah, who was swallowed by a big fish after disobeying God’s command to preach to the people of Nineveh. Jonah spent three days and nights in the belly of the fish, praying and repenting of his sin. God heard his prayer and commanded the fish to vomit him out on dry land.

In my poem, I compare myself to Jonah, who felt like he was drowning in the sea of his troubles. I felt like I had no value, no purpose, no hope. I tried to find a way out of my misery, but nothing worked. I was sinking deeper and deeper into despair.

But then, something amazing happened. I saw a man hanging from a fishing line, with hooks piercing his hands. He was bleeding, but he was smiling. He looked at me with love and compassion, and he invited me to hold on to him. He was the only one who could save me from the depths of the ocean.

That man was Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who died on the cross for my sins and yours. He took the punishment that we deserved, so that we could be forgiven and reconciled with God. He rose from the dead on the third day, and he is alive today, offering us his grace and mercy.

He loves us so much that he gave his life for us. He loves us so much that he wants to rescue us from our sins and sorrows. He loves us so much that he says to each one of us: “I love you this much”.

That is the message of my poem, and that is the message of the gospel. I hope that it touches your heart and inspires you to trust in Jesus, who is the only way, the truth, and the life.
