It's 1:30 in the morning when my eyes should be shut, But here God and I are again... in the same place as we have been the last three nights, teaching my wandering heart the art of learning how to be "His". Teaching my heart how to be still, allowing Him to fight for me, and living in the present of who He says I am.
In a wishey-washey world, where clear answers and true identities are nowhere to be found, trust Him when He says that His unwavering devotion never leaves your side; a Mighty Warrior who has come to rescue your heart. He will take great delight in you. While you were still a sinner with not one ounce of life left in your soul, His heart screamed with the most gentle whisper "I want her forever. Take me instead."
My beautiful friend, you were knitted together with such intention. You were formed with precise detail; so perfect and complete.
He saw you. When you were made in the hidden corners of the earth, in your mother's tum, He saw you and created in you a fierce intention woven into your being that was a reflection of His heart. He created in you a "home" for His beloved; a temple, a house, a dwelling place for the Spirit of the Living God. As He hovers over the waters with such divine power and devotion, He lives with such power in the dwelling place of your heart.
My friend, there is a time in life where God commands you to look past the doubt, look past the insecurity, and look past the guilt. Surging through your veins is a freedom that was never intended to be hidden or hindered. Your feet were never meant to stop running on this sacred, Holy ground.
In this ever-changing and crazy world, He has prepared a place for you.
Right beside Him.
A special, sacred place just for you. The place where God has chosen for you to sow.
Let's lay down our hearts for a minute and be vulnerable with each other. Please lay down your desires, lay down your walls, lay down your wandering thoughts, and all of your burning questions. As will I. Let's take off our shoes, kneel before the cross, and let's talk about why our hearts so desperately need His.
You see, not only is He the Creator of all things, but He is the only Way, the Voice of Truth, and the most powerful weapon to be used. He is our Savior and Redeemer to a world so full of pain and insecurity. He is our Healer when it seems as if there is no life left in us. He is our Master, our Teacher, and our Friend. He is our Deliverer in times of danger and temptation, and our Shepherd ever-so gently leading His sheep. He is our Father. But Most importantly, He is our life-giver. Our every breath we take. He is the one standing beside the bed of a dying loved one anxiously awaiting to welcome His faithful servant home. He is the one who holds our tears. It is comforting to know that not one of our tears is left behind, but rather saved in a bottle from the one who deeply craves our soul. He is the one who leaves the 99 to come find you in the middle of life's biggest messes.
And, after all this time, He calls you His beloved.
Please let Him love you.
