Love Letter to God #17: I Am Smitten

Holy Father,

You woke me up very early today
And in the quiet of the morn
I wondered what You would say.

Then I heard the words of a song
Reminding me of Your faithfulness
And of Your patient love
I knew without a doubt
I was not alone.

No matter what I face
I could do so with Your grace.

No pain, no sorrow
No loss, or threat for tomorrow
Could separate me from what’s true.
All that I need is found in You.

Your joy is my strength.
Jesus, You are my peace.
You are the reservoir
Where my hope is released.

What a wonderful way
To start the day!
You slay
Me with Your Love
I am smitten.

Your Beloved

Love Letter From God #15: The Gate is Open


When gates are open

Sheep flee and

It’s tempting to close it

To hold others in.


The gate is open

As an invitation

For the prodigals

To return.

Don’t worry about

More getting out.

Remember, I know my sheep

They come at the sound

Of My voice.

The gate is open.

I AM the Gatekeeper.

I AM watching

Come, watch with me

For the

 “I tell you the truth, anyone who sneaks over the wall of a sheepfold, rather than going through the gate, must surely be a thief and a robber! But the one who enters through the gate is the shepherd of the sheep. The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep recognize his voice and come to him. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. After he has gathered his own flock, he walks ahead of them, and they follow him because they know his voice. They won’t follow a stranger; they will run from him because they don’t know his voice.”John 10:1-5 NLT
