When I first got saved and was begin to really surrender and pursue the Lord I had one thing in my mind and heart. It was to know what it meant to be a daughter of Christ. It started in 2019 when this journey began and I knew this was where the Lord had and wanted me, because he is a communicator. But here lately I have been in a place of yearning to know Him in the way of being His bride. Throughout the bible it’s mentioned of Him (God) coming back for his Bride (body of Christ) and describes His second coming as a marriage supper.
Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready.” It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteous act of the saints. Then he *said to me, “Write, ‘Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.’” And he *said to me, “These are true words of God.”
There are so many facets of God: He is the ever changing, yet ever-the-same kaleidoscope. As we say yes to Him daily and walk hand in hand we can’t help but to discover more of him. He is our friend, brother, father, King, Lord, Helper and so much more. Here lately the kaleidoscope of God has ever so slightly shifted and I’m beginning to see the Bridegroom He is. As many things are still unknown to me this I do know so far:
I Love the Lord, Jesus, and He loves me. My heart is crying out to him, wanting more of him alone.
Reader: Do you feel the ache of your heart cry? Or have you grown only knowing it in your head but not knowing it in your heart? Or is this all weird to you, to think of him in that way?
If your answer is yes to all these, as mine were too, know that it’s ok, cause He sees you and He is calling to you. Will you pick up and answer?
Here is a poem by Eric Gilmour that shows what our heart cry can sound like and what God’s heart cry is in response:
Your heart cry seems to be
Please, be all to me
I cannot be what I need to be
I have not ears to hear nor eyes to see
I’m broken by sin in me
Distance from the real joy and peace
I have internal wars that never cease
I’m buried in life’s mysteries
I’m blinded to holy mysteries
I’m outside of your victories
I want to love you now endlessly
So come and rescue me
My love, Come marry me”
With this heart cry, the Lord turns around to us.
Let me be all to thee
None can be what I can be
Giver ears to hear and eyes to see
Thrill your soul with ecstasy
Fill your heart with joy and peace
Make internal war to cease
Bring you into My victories
Lift you above like’s miseries
Take you into my mysteries
Love you now and endlessly
And marry you eternally.”
I love how this poem shows God in response because that is who he is. He always listens, response and is always with us(Isaiah 43:2). Today ask yourself what parts of the kaleidoscope you are looking at and tell God, then wait for his response.
