The Father and the Child
Come, My child. I long to hold you close.
Oh, yes, Father, that is my desire also.
I know. It is your love for Me that shows Me your heart’s desire to grow in intimacy.
What shall I do to draw closer to You?
I want you to learn to quiet your heart so that you can hear My voice.
How do I quiet my heart?
By being still enough to listen to My words of love. You hear so many other voices; I want you to set apart time for listening to Me.
Will this take much time?
The amount of time is not as essential as your willingness to give Me your heart.
My heart is Yours, Father.
Good. I take great pleasure in expressing My love for you.
Relationships are so sweet.
To know that you are loved and continually prayed for, that is comfort.
You are good when there’s nothing good in me.
You are love on display for all to see.
You are light when the darkness closes in.
You are hope, You have covered all my sin.
You are peace when my fear is crippling.
You are true even in my wandering.
You are joy, You’re the reason that I sing.
You are life, in You death has lost its sting.
You are more than my words will ever say.
You are Lord all creation will proclaim.
You are here, in Your presence I’m made whole.
You are God.
Of all else I’m letting go.
Truth. Let it reign.
