His Love Song

As the wind whips and the branches bow, I think of His almighty power to turn water into wine, make the blind man see, and remove the rock from the tomb. He is amazing, this man I call friend. He is my applause and confidence as I champion my life for his glory. Though others might sneer and snicker behind my back, I only try to let God work and love others threw me. I am his vessel.

It does me no good to harbor a grudge against that of another man. This only breeds toxins in my soul and blocks the very love I so desire to please. It brings sadness to my Lord when I lay bricks of sin around my heart and deadens the relationship he longs for and deeply desires…fellowship with me! But he never leaves me in these troublesome occasions, but continues through the precious Holy Spirit to whisper his love song to me.

And then…I feel his touch deep within and fall to my knees. I ask for forgiveness once again. The bricks of sin which I had built no longer stand, no longer stand, but have been removed by my Saviors hands through the precious blood of the lamb.

Breathless for You

A long walk with you in the morning leaves me breathless all the daylong and thirst continually for more time with my forever friend.  Just as the sun always rises in the east sky and sets on the western horizon, so also I am confident of your love for me. You are compassionate, gracious, abundant in goodness and truth. You are generous and never give to get something in return. You satisfy all my desires and I dream of the day when I continually praise your for anything and everything that happens in my life…whether good or bad. For I know full well all things work together for good to those who love you and seek you.

I am chosen!

I am royal!

I am holy!

I am special!

I am called!

I am the one whom Jesus loves!

“But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.”
~I Peter 2:9
