Whole Made


On Hebrews 6:1 and 1 John 4:18


             In Love Made Whole

It is in this world where we lead, and
are blessed to bless,
preparing for the immortal days,
contemplating a place never seen,
and God-Word, unseen in perfection,
yet perfection-guided.
Turn me, Lord, and turn me now, to
Your perfection, I drive to see and be;
To your Love, I crave to cling and be;
In your Light, I seek to be and to glow.
Lead me to this place, to this state of
Perfect Love.
I will rejoice to be there.
Joy to the World!
Joy in the Word!
In love, I am made whole.
Too often fearful of death and unknown,
I crave life. I would be there!

About Tom Bolton

I'm a Husband and Dad, an Enterprise Systems Manager at the City of Milwaukee, and a Disciple and Lay Servant at First United Methodist of West Allis. I love working beside young people. As I study the Bible, sometimes I feel moved to work through my understanding by writing poetry. I also am going through a process to discern my calling, and to learn more about Christian Leadership. Sometimes I just feel like writing about something that grabs my attention too.
