Love Letter to God #10

Yah,

I rise in the night

When You whisper my name

To dance a prayer dance

To sing Your praise

To seek Your presence.

In the night I find my way to You.

You speak and I melt

I am reduced to tears

For the joy of Your touch

Overwhelms me.

Waiting in your presence

I am full of hopeful expectation

Because Your love is watching

Your love is always ready

To rescue me and keep me safe.

Thank You for the dance tonight.

Your Beloved

Isaiah 55:6-7 (MSG)
Seek God while he’s here to be found,
pray to him while he’s close at hand.
Let the wicked abandon their way of life
and the evil their way of thinking.
Let them come back to God, who is merciful,
come back to our God, who is lavish with forgiveness.

Love Letter to God #9

Yahweh,

I wasn’t sure
You would want to see me
Again.
But I have nowhere else to go
So, I’m taking a chance
Again.
I messed up
Again.
But You said You would love me always.
So, I’m coming to see
If You are willing
Again.
As I make this turn
To come home
Again
What will I find?
Will I find mercy
Again?
Oh my. I can hardly believe
What I’m seeing
Again.
You’re running towards me
With arms stretched out
Again.
I can’t see much through my tears
I can hardly breathe in Your embrace
Again.
You are covering me with grace
Again.
You are drawing me towards Your place
Again.
You have me in Your hands
You are kissing me and singing that I’m home
Again.
You have placed Your ring on my finger
Again
You call me Your own
Again
I feel welcomed and loved
Again.
Because You came looking for me

Again

I’m never leaving
Again.

Forever,

Your Beloved

Joel 2:12-14 (NIRV)

The Lord announces to his people,

“Return to me with all your heart.
There is still time.
Do not eat any food.
Weep and mourn.”

Don’t just tear your clothes to show how sad you are.

Let your hearts be broken.
Return to the Lordyour God.
He is gracious.
He is tender and kind. He is slow to get angry.
He is full of love.
He won’t bring his judgment. He won’t destroy you.
Who knows? He might turn toward you and not bring his judgment.
He might even give you his blessing.
Then you can bring grain offerings and drink offerings to the Lord your God.

Love Letter to God #8

Fragrant purple haze

Silver dew drops, swaying trees

Mornings with my Love

Psalm 5:3 (NASB)
In the morning, OLord, You will hear my voice; In the morning I will order my prayer to You and eagerly watch.

Love Letter to God #7

My Lord,

I admit I am a mess
I’ve settled for less.

I’ve held my voice
Not making a choice.

I’ve tried to hide
The Light You placed inside

I know my need
Your voice to heed.

So, now I’m here
Longing and ready to hear

What You would say
To guide me today.

Let this be my start.
I’m giving You my heart.

Kindle the flame
As I call on Your name.

Let Your fire burn
So others will turn

To seek Your face
And experience Your grace.

Then we can live together
And walk in Your unfailing Love forever.

Your Beloved

Revelation 3:14-22 (NLT)

14 “Write this letter to the angel of the church in Laodicea. This is the message from the one who is the Amen—the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God’s new creation:

15 “I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other! 16 But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth! 17 You say, ‘I am rich. I have everything I want. I don’t need a thing!’ And you don’t realize that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked. 18 So I advise you to buy gold from me—gold that has been purified by fire. Then you will be rich. Also buy white garments from me so you will not be shamed by your nakedness, and ointment for your eyes so you will be able to see. 19 I correct and discipline everyone I love. So be diligent and turn from your indifference.

20 “Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends.21 Those who are victorious will sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat with my Father on his throne.

22 “Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches.”

Love Letter to God #6

El Shaddai,

Supernatural
Key holder, door opener
Love that keeps me safe

I am Yours and You are mine.

Your Beloved

Revelation 3:7-13 (NLT)

“Write this letter to the angel of the church in Philadelphia.

This is the message from the one who is holy and true,
the one who has the key of David.
What he opens, no one can close;
and what he closes, no one can open: “I know all the things you do, and I have opened a door for you that no one can close. You have little strength, yet you obeyed my word and did not deny me.

Look, I will force those who belong to Satan’s synagogue—those liars who say they are Jews but are not—to come and bow down at your feet. They will acknowledge that you are the ones I love.

“Because you have obeyed my command to persevere, I will protect you from the great time of testing that will come upon the whole world to test those who belong to this world. I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take away your crown. All who are victorious will become pillars in the Temple of my God, and they will never have to leave it. And I will write on them the name of my God, and they will be citizens in the city of my God—the new Jerusalem that comes down from heaven from my God. And I will also write on them my new name.

“Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches.
