A Letter

My Dear Sister,

I just had to send a note to tell you how much I love you and care for you.  I saw you yesterday as you were walking with your friends.  I waited all day hoping you would want to talk to me also. As evening drew near I gave you a sunset to close your day and a cool breeze to rest you.  And then I waited.  But you never came.  It hurt me, but I still love you because I am your friend.

I saw you fall asleep last night and I longed to touch your brow, so I spilled moonlight on your pillow and your face.  I watched you sleep soundly as peace settled over you.  I wanted to rush down so that we could talk. I long for that connection with you, for that intimacy.  There are so many things I want to share with you; so much knowledge.  But you awakened late the next morning and rushed off to start the day.  My tears were in the rain.

Today you looked so sad, so all alone.  It made my heart ache, because I understand.  My friends have let me down and hurt me too.  But I love you.  Oh, if you would only listen to me.  I try to tell you in the leaves on the trees and breathe in the colors of the flowers.  I shout it to you in the mountain streams and give the birds love songs to sing.  I clothe you with warm sunshine and perfume the air with nature's scents.  My love for you is deeper than the oceans and bigger than the biggest want or need in your heart.

Please, just reach for me, ask me, talk with me, lean on me and love me.

Let me guide you.  That is all I ask.

                                                                   Your friend and Elder Brother,

                                                                                              Jesus

  1. I just keep reading this, and thinking about how true it is. He wants me to allow Him to help me so badly. He's eager. That word, 'allow' has been swimming around in my head the past few days. He won't make or force me to recognize Him. But He won't leave my side either. It amazes me to no end. Wow. This also reminds me of the fact that He is in everything. "All things denote there is a God." And it's because there is. And He is. Loved this. Thank you!

Thank you for sharing a moment with me:-)

Ezekiel 34:11-12,16

"For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out. As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day. I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick"
