The Love Letter

Hey, my lovelies, how are you all today? like really how are you? have you done an internal check-up? Have you gone to the father to ask if there is something that needs paying attention to? You see this is something I do on a regular, and a heart check is very important. The Bible says in Proverbs 4:23 that we should guard our heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life. When you also read in proverbs 17:22 you will see that it says a merry heart does good like medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones! What is broken in your life that you need to give to God? He is the only one that can fix any brokenness. So, I urge you today to sit with your loving father and allow him to fix any brokenness so your heart can be filled with joy and do you good like medicine. 

So today, I actually had a different article ready for you, however, while I was spending time with my Abba, basking in his love, faithfulness and Wonder, I started writing Him a letter as I always do every morning. This time, it was a love letter and in the process of just pouring out my love, gratitude and surrender to God, the Holy Spirit said, this is what you will share on the blog today. I was like huh? This is my vulnerable side; like how can I possibly share my private moments with God and how I open up to Him. Well, He just said share. So, this is not your usual post, this is a peek into my conversations with my father in my secret place. I hope you are blessed and as you read this letter, I pray that you bask in the fathers love today and just enjoy His presence.  

Dear Abba, spending time with you is something I don’t want to grow out of, your presence is heaven to me.

May I make your presence my dwelling place beyond our secrete place!

May I carry your presence everywhere I go.

Dear Abba, teach me how to look for you in my everyday life, teach me how to be quiet so that I can hear your still voice!

Teach me how to hear your heartbeat and how to read your body language.

Awesome God, there Is no one like you!

My King, oh how my soul is pleased to be called your own.

I will live up to who you called me, as your daughter, as one who is only satisfied by you!

I will forever live in your bounty.

I dance in your showers of blessings every day.

I enjoy the freshness of your mercies every morning.

Oh! How you love me!

May my entire life speak of you! 

shower me consistently with your love every day.

Drown me in your glory, drench me with your grace.

May I never lose sight of what is important, may I never lose my wonder.

Keep me on the straight path of righteousness, direct my steps towards you.

Refine me in your refiner’s fire and remove from me what is not of you!

I place myself into your careful hands, to do what needs to be done!

Just like your servant David cried out in the scriptures 

Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.

 See if there is any offensive way in me and lead me in the way everlasting.

Create in me a pure heart and renew a steadfast spirit within me 

May I continue to be taught by you! 

May I never come to a place where I feel like I know it all 

I will forever be your student and you my teacher 

Hold my hand Abba and never let me go!  

I love you! And I receive your love.

Your beloved baby girl
