Do I love you, Jesus, With an Unconditional Love?

Or do I love You only when You perform to my liking? 

Do I love You when you are silent

Or only when You are speaking?

When I hear Your voice of discipline

Do I love You then?

Or only when I am surrounded by Your blessings?

Do I love You when I hurt

Or only when I rejoice?

Do I love You when Iím lonely

Or only when I am surrounded by loved ones?

Do I love You as I struggle

Or only when my way is easy?

Am I loving towards You when Iím ill

Or only when Iím healthy?

Am I lovingly singing Your praises when I fail

Or only when I succeed?

Is my love Yours alone

Or only when I have no one or nothing else to give it to?

Is my love Yours when I feel unlovable

Or only when I feel loved?

Do I love You when Iím angry

Or only when I am grateful?

Do I love You when I don't understand

Or only when things make sense?

Do I love You when I am helpless

Or only when I am in control?

Do I love You with my life

Or only with my thoughts?

Do I give You my heart

Or only my words?

Do I love Your people

Or only my chosen ones?

Do I love Your plans for me

Or only when they coincide with my own?

Do I love You unconditionally

Or do I love You on my terms?

 

Oh, dear Jesus, clean my heart of all that withholds my deepest passion from You and remove from me anything I hold more dear than You. May my only condition of loving You be that You alone are my life. May I truly say, ďFor me to live is Christ. To die is gain.Ē
