The Invitation

                                                                          Come Away with Me

 

I love you with dog in row boat“My dove in the clefts of the rock, in the hiding places

on the mountainside, show me your face, let me hear your voice;

for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely.”

 

Song of Solomon 2:14

       

“Did you see my sunrise this morning? Did you see my flowers? Have you seen a rainbow lately or watched a cute feline meticulously clean himself?  Have you ever watched the ducks chasing each other on a lake? Have you been too busy to notice how much I love you—how much I want you to see me…how much I want to see you?”ducks

 

 

When Moses led God’s people out of Egypt, the Lord showed them His glory on Mount Sinai. They saw His greatness. They heard His voice. They saw the mountain burn with fire and learned that God speaks with men.fire

 

But, they were afraid. “Moses, you tell us what God says.” They didn’t want to talk face to face with God. They thought they would die. How foolish!

 

They broke Father’s heart. He had extended an invitation. They said no.

 

Father hasn’t changed. He wants you to notice His goodness to you. He wants to talk with you.  He wants to hear you say, “Lord! What a sunrise. What a sunset. The ducks are so funny. My cat is so adorable. Everything’s so beautiful. You made these things for DSC00653me…because you love…me?”

“Come, my daughter and be at rest with Me. The enemy demands with laws and restrictions. His voice is loud and heavy with condemnation, guilt and shame.

But My voice is quiet. My voice beckons you. It’s a whisper. My voice sets the captive daughter free and brings her to the still waters. You will know My voice for it’s full of comfort, full of strength, full of compassion, full of My promises.DSC00665

Come. I wait for you. I wish to hear your voice and see your sweet face. Come…just come!

 

“My beloved spoke, and said to me: ‘Rise up, my love, my fair one,

                      And come away.’”

                                                                        Song of Solomon 2:10

      Dear Heather,
      Oh, how He loves YOU! And as I write this note I see his hands anointed with sweet honey as He calls your name.

    This morning He sent a little hummingbird to the feeder hanging outside the window by my kitchen sink. Such a sweet and simple act of love. Thank you, Lord, for the beauty of Your creation. You let me watch your dear little hummer while I cleaned up my breakfast dishes. What a blessing!

      Dear Robbie,
      How many times does the Lord speak to us and we fail to recognize His voice, His drawing us near. But you saw your Bridegroom’s love note and you rejoiced and…so did He!
      Thank you for sharing! You made me smile too!
