Carrying the Conversation

Have you digested the Word, His precious Word as a love letter? A spilling forth of graces and hopes across the table. A divine conversation carried on between us and Him, the King. May you find yourself line upon line.

[Insert your name here], how I love to say your name! I hope you like it too…I picked it especially for you (Isaiah 49:1).

Please know you've been on My mind for a long time (Jeremiah 1:5).

What a joy to call you my friend (John 15:15), my son/daughter (Galatians 3:26).

You were a treasure to shape as my hands wonderfully wove and knit you (Psalm 139:15).

You are beautiful/handsome beyond words; flawless; inviting. Ravishing My heart; My delight (Song of Solomon 4).

Shhh…listen…do you hear My songs over you, for you (Zephaniah 3:17)?

I can hardly take my eyes off you. I count every hair on your head (Matthew 10:29).

Though you flit and flight hither and yonder, rest knowing I plan every day of your life (Job 31:4).

My eyes will always watch your paths and establish your ways (Proverbs 5:21, 4:26).

While we’re chatting, can I ask you something? Will you love Me (Deuteronomy 6:5)?

With all your heart. All your soul. All your strength.

One more thing I’d like to ask. When you’re tempted, please, don’t be afraid or discouraged. Be strong and courageous; take heart. Those battles waging? They are mine to face. I will protect you (Joshua 10:25).

I promise I will always stand up for you (Zechariah 3:2) and I will never leave or forsake you (Hebrews 13:5).

You are cherished more than My life [insert name]; I love you. (John 3:16).

This conversation between God and us doesn’t end there. He longs to have this talk with us daily as we open our ears and allow His Word to filter the world.

How is memorizing our four scriptures going for you?

xoxo, Sam

I cannot even begin to tell you how much I LOVED reading this today! Been feeling a little far from God lately, my quiet time has faltered a bit, I just haven't gotten my bum out of bed to seek Him in the morning. It's so good to hear that He is still there waiting for me!

Thanks again for the awesome post! Love you!

Sweet Samantha, I have just recently started following your blog, you bring me to tears my dear! I recently posted on another blog that lately when I read the Bible, I cringe and sob because instead of guidance and insight, all I hear is a running list of how miserably I have failed, and continue to fail God on a daily basis. Thank you for your posts, they are a ray of sunshine in my fog. :)

Love and prayers,

P.S.-I have started praying to God before I read the Bible to protect me while I read so I can hear His word clearly, the way I am meant to hear it, and block out the lies the enemy twists around me. It seems to help :)
