Dear Brides: I didn’t know what it felt to experience true love. The love from my Father, my Heavenly Husband, or my Maker. It is now that I am learning this after years of being sort of called loved by the people of the world. The love of earthly people can never compare to the love that your HH “Heavenly Husband” is longing to give His brides.
Song of Solomon 3:2-4; 5:8 “My beloved is mine, and I am his. When I found him whom my soul loves, I held on to him and would not let him go. For I am lovesick”. When I read this scripture, I was overwhelmed because I do not want to let go of the Lord. It has taken me some time to get here because of distractions but every day, my time with my Beloved gets better and more intimate. Yesterday my soul was uneasy because I didn’t spend the time I wanted. This morning, I couldn’t wait to sit with the Lord. His presence was overwhelming.
He died to give you and me an abundant life.
Philippians 4: 19: “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus”.
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life”.
John 10:10 “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I have come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly”.
The Lord is teaching me that He is my Beloved and I am His. I am His forever bride and He is my HH. I am drawing closer to Him and the more I read His word and promises, the more I long for him. Isaiah 30:18: “Therefore the Lord longs to be gracious to you, and therefore he waits on high to have compassion on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; how blessed are all those who long for him”. I long for him and his love and I understand that the Lord longs for me. That he loves with an unconditional love that can never be replaced by anyone. I will share this love with other women that are a similar situation to me or just women, my daughters in general. I used to be ok with any kindness. When I learned about the Lord’s unfailing love, it is his love that I want.
Say a little prayer with me: Lord, I thank you for your grace and mercy which are new every day. My Beloved thank you for changing me, renewing my thinking and drawing me closer to you, more and more each day. You are all that I want, all that I need and what I want to live for. I love to be in your presence. Thank you for never leaving me nor forsaking me. I want to be your forever bride.
Dear Brides: This Chapter 15 “Utterly Lovesick” shares about the love our HH has for us. It is a love that is indescribable. It is a love that no person on earth can provide. He loves us with an unconditional Love. I am learning about his love and can say that my Beloved is mine and I am his. My soul was empty and always had a void. I filled it with earthly men that just “didn’t have it”. I can now say that it is the Lord’s love that I want forevermore and be his Bride forever.
This book is phenomenal and a must read. If you are struggling with self-acceptance, marital problems, this is the book for you. Erin and her ministry and their testimonies are incredible as to how the Lord has done a mighty thing in their lives.
Luke 1:37 “For nothing will be impossible with God”.
John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.
