When You Wonder
“Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm, for love is strong as death, jealousy is fierce as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, the very flame of the Lord”(Song of Solomon 8:6).
My girl, deep breath now. First of all, let Me tell you something: you don’t have to have this life all figured out to live it well. You can keep going, one day at a time, looking for Me, not looking for Me. Your actions show Me what you love. I know your heart already. And your actions can move your heart to respond to Me in ways you can’t, at the time, see.
Be encouraged: the moments of the going and the doing and the waiting and the longing--couldn’t they be responses to my whispers in you? You worry that you will miss Me. You look back on your day and you wonder, “Was that enough? Was I present with You, Father? Is working and wondering and running here and there a way to be with You? Is this the life You planned for me? Am I doing this right?”
Oh, girl, you don’t disappoint Me.
My daughter, I could not love you more, no matter what you do. Can you imagine living from that place, of knowing I adore you? Can you imagine awakening in the morning and knowing, no matter what is in store, you are not alone? My lovely one, I smile on you. I have to catch my breath when I think about you.
You captivate Me.
Daughter, remember you are rescued. Remember, you are free. Remember, you are white as snow; cast all cares upon Me. Remember I am your strength. Remember I am the rock who will always help you stand. Remember, I came, and I know weariness and temptation. I know pain and frustration. I know hunger and thirst and the pressures of eyes of this world. I went before. I carry you now.
Going forward (steady now) . . I am with you. No need to question where I am or if I love you or if you are doing a thing right. Your knowing my love for you is your guide.
My love, believe. That is how you measure a day.
