My Groom of Choice
It was you. It has always been you I have been searching for since the beginning of time.
When I first heard Your voice, I knew from that moment that there was something solid about it. Never heard I a voice filled with such love, firmness and strength.
Since that day, I have been captivated by Your words and raptured by Your love for me.
My sweet Saviour,
My soul now yearns for you with a deep yearning; my eyes long to see you. And now I, as your darling bride, walk eagerly, in much anticipation and preparation to finally meet You and see You face to face.
To look into the eyes that suffered death, hell and the grave for me; to kiss the hands that bore the nails for me. To lean for a long while upon the shoulders that carried the cross for me, to see the face that wore the crown of thorns and shame for me, to embrace the arms that have given me rest in a restless world. To finally be enjoined with my King at last, and to breathe the words — forever at last.
I walk a bride, ready to meet her groom everyday. And just knowing that You O sweet redeemer, were willing to wait 2,000 years to be enjoined to me, deepens my desire to see You even the more.
My darling Lord,
My love for You is true and eternal, yet inexpressible. My love for You keeps growing stronger and my desire for You roots itself deeper and deeper into my soul.
And knowing too, that You love me infinitely much more than I love You, calms all my fears. Time and time again, I am filled with intriguing wonder whenever I think of Your everlasting love for me.
My precious Lord,
I have given my life over to You willingly to do as You will. I give up everything just to be by Your side and have You stand by mine for all eternity. In me, You have a loyal slave, a heart servant, and a lifetime friend.
My heart longs above everything else to hear Your approval of me: thou good and faithful servant.
And thus, I say come! Because I know You are near. I can recognize Your voice amidst the myriad of voices in the crowd. I see Your handiwork throughout the restlessness and the birth pangs the world is experiencing.
I see Your signature all over. And again with much anticipation, I say come!
And the Spirit and the bride say come!
Even so Lord Jesus, come! So that where You are, I may be also.
Okay… Let’s just be honest, whenever most people hear anything about religion, their first reaction and instinct is probably to cringe or brush off the whole matter entirely.
Why? Most likely because it is a subject that is associated with extreme cases of fanaticism, it brings about a lot of conflicts and controversies, and even offends easily.
Religion is famously known for: manipulation, stagnation, repression, ignorance, bigotry and is too often a threat to liberty. And rightly so. I do agree. With that said, I recommend you to read two of my posts as well as encourage you to do a personal, extensive, and honest research on your own regarding this matter. Why?
As intellectuals (critical thinkers), I believe we owe it to ourselves to interrogate, examine, and ask hard questions regarding matters touching on faith rather than choosing to ignore them or even worse— follow blind faith. Click here for the first post.
Who speaks the truth with regards to a genuine, sincere and true relationship with God? Is it Buddha? Muhammad? Jesus? Zoroaster? Confucius? Joseph Smith? Guru Nanak? Krishna? Among others? Find out on this second post:
My heart overflows with a goodly matter; I speak the things which I have made touching the king: My tongue is the pen of a ready writer. Psalms 45:1
