Heartsickness

September 28, 2009

Our hearts drive us toward the things we want most. Those things we love most give us the ability to live even when all else says, “not so.” Only you know what is in your heart and what is not. We make decisions based on what is most important to us, regardless of whether we know it. The desire in our heart somehow conquers fear of the unknown. Such courage allows us to take that first step toward our heart’s desire. Our heart always guides us in the direction of its greatest yearning. When we don’t follow that guiding, we become heartsick.

Take Your rightful place on the throne of my heart, Jesus, and guide me according to Your plan for my life. You are my great hope. You are my first love. You know my heart far better than I ever will know it. Align my heart with Yours. Fulfill this longing as only You can. Thank You, my Beloved. I trust You.

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. -Matt. 6:33

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life. -Proverbs 13:12

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. -Proverbs 3:5-6

Now

September 25, 2009

How is it that your face does not become more familiar? Instead, I see a new glimmer I had not seen before… a new shade of a favorite color so much deeper, brighter, softer, clearer than before.

Your touch reaches heights and depths only you were able to find.

Your voice is still music to my ears.

I can’t get enough of you.

I want you more than I did yesterday. How is that possible? I never dreamed I would want you or love you more than I did at that moment.

This is now. I love you, now.

I never want satisfaction from you…. I always want to love you, now.

Affection

September 24, 2009

During the night, I reach out for You. You draw me into the warmth of Your bosom. I lay my head upon Your chest. You embrace me and quiet the drumming that plagues my tired mind.

Silence, at last.

Your steady heartbeat becomes audible. Your peaceful-self assurance is relaxing yet invigorating. To think, all existence is held firmly in Your control, yet You take time for this intimate moment. You inspire me, my Love. I feel the strength and confidence that is You. Stars twinkle throughout the galaxy in response to Your smile. You kiss my brow with moonlight.

Our hearts beat in unison, its rhythm soothes my restlessness. A blissful surge of peace drives out every debilitating inhibition and doubt. You breathe life into me, once again. I find the sweetest comfort in Your arms.

Your quiet whispers brush vivid strokes of healing over my weary body. Your voice holds the fresh softness of raindrops and depth of thunder. Your Word feeds my hunger for more of You and satisfies my craving for contentment. Each thought You share fills the vaccuum in my soul created by fear. Your consuming love saturates all of the emptiness I felt before knowing You. Your touch relaxes my senses and drives away the pain.

I am safe with You.

Your love is exclusive. Your jealousy tolerates no sharing of Your place in my heart. You shower me with Your ever perfect love, beauty, grace and eternal affection. Humbly, my God, I accept all that You are and reject anything that does not align with Your Word.

You are my Beloved and I am Yours, Jesus.

Incomparable

September 15, 2009

You quiet my noisy mind with whispers of hope and peace. You promise a future – eternity with You. Your words are not empty. They are sure and proven, over and again. All power is in Your Word. Time and space are Yours. There is neither power nor thing not under Your command. The seas thunder and roll passionately, yet honor Your periphery. The sun remains in its place, burning fiercely and constantly… a reminder of Your faithful love. Nothing compares to Your love, my Lord. Nothing compares to Thee.

Creativity
You breathe on my life, Father

Haiku: Silent Rain

September 12, 2009

I know you’re here now
though silent, my heart hears yours
together, they speak

so intimately
quiet whispers uttering
words for just we two

raindrops on windows
gentle rhythm on the ground
I hear you, my love

Haiku: Awaited Solace

September 12, 2009

your words gently weave
a tapestry of passion
threads of purest love

silence surrounds me
except for the clock…ticking
closer to that day

you will hold me close
finally in your embrace
awaited solace
