Let Me Write You a Love Letter

     I heard words whispered in the wind; it was sweet music to my ears.  I knew the sound of Your voice, it poured out wonder and wisdom into my dry, thirsty spirit.  Each day I hurried to our trysting place, so eager to receive Your love.   We feasted on the Bread of Life and drank from the well that never runs dry.  You anointed me with oil and my cup ran over. My soul was satisfied.

     My pen became an instrument of joy, sailing across the pages as words poured forth in cascading rivers of love.  I spoke of my desire to live for You and You alone.  I gave my heart to You completely and all seemed well with my soul.

     Then came a time when the words I once used to expound on my love for you were no longer there.  Where had they gone?  They hid from me in the darkness of my thoughts.  They had blown away in the winds of sorrow.  If I could but find them, I would write love sonnets to You again.  If I could capture  them as they are blown about, I would tell You of dreams I dream of You.  If I could but gather those elusive words as they tumble about in my mind, I would once again write love letters to You.

     Be patient with me, my Love, and show mercy.  I thank You that You have considered my troubles and have known my adversities.  I know that though weeping may endure for a night, joy comes in the morning; then I shall rise up early and give you praise. I shall rejoice in that day for you will have made it. I will make of myself a morning sacrifice, holy and pleasing to You for this will be a reasonable service. 

     In Your Word I found You again and in praise I found my instrument of joy.  My pen once again flies across the pages of my soul  writing songs of joy and love as I dance with You in heavenly realms.  I pay tribute to You, dear Holy Spirit; You pursued and overtook me and renewed my gift.  Thank you, my Lord.
