It’s that time of the month again. 🙂 Time to open up your letter and learn to rest in His Presence. This month the format is a bit different as you receive a Spoken Word to help you unwind.
You can sit down on the inside because I stood up in your place.
I covered your sin with My blood and washed it with boundless grace.
I cleansed you with this very blood when you chose to let Me in.
I have taken on your shame, eased your pain, and covered all your sin.
My child, I am near—won’t you stop, turn ’round and see?
I’ve created a way for you to rest secure and also to live free.
So stop clinging to this world for it’s not even your true home.
As you walk in it remember that you are never really alone.
I see each wrinkle line and the limp that trips and slows you.
But Child, I’m using this life as a training ground to mold you.
Lift your eyes, look up, and see all the love in My Radiant Face.
The things of earth grow dim in the light of My Glory and Grace.
Keep walking this path, not giving up, as I wisely lead the way.
My Word is the Rock that undergirds you, it’s your hope and stay.
Stop letting the weeds entangle you, for they are a cheap substitute.
Come to Me for help and let me pull out sin’s strong root.
Let Me untangle you with my unshifting, unearthing truth.
I am the Gentle Gardner, Kind, and you my tender shoot.
I have planted you here, for this day, so you can grow up strong.
And with Me you’ll blossom, fragrant, after not too long.
So, you see, this time of trial and testing, it’s just but a blink.
And then we’ll be together, oh Child, it’s better than you think.
One day I’ll call you, with arms wide, but not a day too soon.
And then you’ll be at home with me, restored, and in full bloom.
- How has God restored you as you let Him lead?
- If you aren’t letting Him lead, why not?
- What is holding you back from living free?
