the Call of Love

"Oh My Beloved, abide under the shelter of the lattice ... for I have betrothed thee unto Myself, and though ye are sometimes indifferent toward me, My love for thee is at all times as a flame of fire. My ardor never cools, My longing for thy love and affection is deep and constant. "

I have just started reading "Come Away my Beloved".

This is my
blog to share the excerpts, and thoughts with you in the hope it will encourage you as well as myself, to a deeper closer walk with Jesus.

This is the first devotion, called, "The Call of Love".

Have you ever thought that His love is calling out to you?

That his love is like a wonderful sheltering lattice?

He has put within us, what is first within His own heart. A longing for a love relationship with Him ... a relationship that is unlike another, one that would be so full of life and love that we would constantly and continually be yielding to it's overflow in our hearts and lives.

There is strength in the knowledge of His love for us.

"I love thee, and if ye can always, as it were, feel My pulse beat, ye shall know many things the knowedge of which shall give thee sustaining strength. ..... Lay thy head upon my breast and lose thyself in me. Thou shall experience resurrection life and peace, the joy of the Lord shall be thy strength; and wells of salvation shall be opened unto thee."

Good morning Ruth! It is a lovely book. I read it about a decade ago and had just rearranged my bookshelves and thought I need to pick that one up again soon.

Enjoy!
