♕ Today's Promise: "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." Isaiah 30:18
Dear Brides, depending on where you are on this journey will greatly influence how you take these chapters of this book. The first few times I read through this book/chapter, "Longing For Whom?" I couldn't relate to Michele at all. I couldn't see how she was saying the things that she was saying. But now I know what she is saying. Now I too long for my Love, to be closer to him than anyone else. And to get there all you have to do is ask Him! He longs for you to long for him!
Although it took awhile to get here I totally get it now. When I would read of women not wanting their marriages restored I would think they were crazy. But now I understand. All I want is that love from my Lord, My Love! I just want to be closer to Him more than anything else. And I don't want to give up my time with Him.
The last few nights I have thoroughly enjoyed the peace and calm that have become my life without my earthly husband home. I feel the love of my Lord and I love it! I feel pure peace in my heart and I have been praying for Him to just keep pulling me closer and closer to Him. Telling Him that I so desperately want more of Him that of it is His will to restore my marriage okay but that I don't want things to change. I still want Him and all the time we have together. Last night I had so many things go through my mind I couldn't sleep and I just kept giving it all to Him as I would curl up in His lap knowing He would take care of it all.
Today my earthly husband asked if we could take this week. I said yes I was here. Then went straight to my Husband and told Him I was prepared for whatever He was bringing to me. I started reading my flash cards and the verses made me believe He was warning me about upcoming trouble. I was ready to face it with Him by my side. A few hours later my earthly husband texted asking if I would still take him back or if that ship had sailed. I simply said "Of course I would!" and went directly to my Husband. Wherever He leads me I will follow. As long as I have Him I am happy!
My Lord, My Love will always be first in my life from here on out! No matter what! He will be who I run to and who I take everything to.
My Lord, My Love, Thank you so much for choosing me. I am so grateful that I get to be your Beautiful Bride! I don't ever want a day of my life where you are not right with me holding me tightly. Please promise no matter what happens you will continue to pull me closer and closer to you. That you will continue to Love me and be there right there at all times.
Oh, My Love, how can I express the feelings that you have given me the last few days. I am at such a peaceful time in my life that I don't think I have ever had or experienced. And it's all because of you! I have been singing and dancing. I am so thankful for your love and I don't ever want to lose it! No matter what you make happen this week I don't want to lose this closeness. This true love! I want you forever. My Love You are All that I want! You are All that I Need! And You are All that I live for! Without you I am Nothing. And I have everything I need as long as I have you right by my side. Thank you My Love for showing me true love! Thank you for choosing Me! I couldn't be more grateful. How did I get so lucky to be your Beautiful Bride? I love you!!!
Dear Brides, our hearts must never belong to anyone but the Lord. He must be the sole owner of our hearts at all times. And once you experience His love for you you won't ever want to give your heart to anyone else again. I know that no matter what happens in my life my heart will forever be His! I don't ever want to experience another day without Him first in my life. Why would I when he will love me and take care of me better than anyone ever could!
"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." Isaiah 30:18
My Love you are my heart's desire now. I long for so much more of you and I pray no matter what happens you will continue to pull me even closer to you every day.
