You have captured my heart Lord and intrigued my thoughts. You have entered my spirit and chosen that as your dwelling place. You have struck the mighty from their throne and humbled the exalted. You have warmed my heart and set my soul on fire. Let me never speak a word without it concerning you, let me never take a step without asking for your hand,let me never do good so that others may see me, let me never use my eyes in vain, let me never make decisions without your approval. Let me never love without loving like you. Create in me a clean heart oh God and make my heart like unto thine!
The devil defines me by my sin but you define me as a friend, a daughter, a cherished jewel. Yes I am a sinner but my sin does not define me who I am. You have called me to your heart, Lord and your heart is my home. Every day you knock on the door to my heart. At times I answer and sometimes I don’t. Lord let me never feel indifference towards your love!
Lord I come to you today not as a saint or anyone who pretends to be, but as a sinner. I have many faults and flaws but even with the bad in me, I desire to love you with it and use it for your good and for the good of God. I am a woman with a heart so full of love and I desire to give that love to one man for the rest of my life. To love and be loved is the deepest human desire. This heart has experienced much pain, Lord but it is the heart that you gave me and in my life, I have loved fully and I have hurt deeply. I will continue to do so because it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. You awaken my soul Lord with your soft whispers to my heart and I listen intently. You have loved me with an everlasting love and I desire to love one man with a love that will last all the days of my life and into eternity. No love will ever compare to yours but you are the greatest teacher of love so I know that the love you send me, will be the greatest love of all! Everything you do is for my good, even when something or someone is taken away. May I always trust you even in things I can’t see or understand.
~~~I look into your eyes, the eyes which I formed, the color, the shape, the depth, and I see no evil or malice there, just a pure heart with pure love for the Lord your God. You call yourself a sinner, but I call you a saint. You call yourself stained with sin, but I call you redeemed. You feel afraid to show your face before me, thinking that I’m a God full of anger and justice, full of condemnation, and you are afraid to come to me. Do not be afraid to show your face. I want to see you. Do not be afraid to speak to me. I want to hear you. Do not be afraid to do good works just because you feel there is no hope for you. I want to save you now as I did then on the cross. I want to hold you. I want to be with you. I want to look in those eyes, maybe even filled with tears, and hear you pour your heart out to me. I want to be a part of you and you a part of me. Do not separate yourself from me because I will never separate myself from you. I will never forget you even if you forget me. I will never abandon you even if you abandon me. I will never hurt you even if you hurt me. I will not condemn you, even if you condemn yourself. I will not lose faith in you, even if you lose faith in yourself and in Me. I will cheer you on when you fail, even if you have no hope. I will be your God and friend even if you chose not to be my daughter. You are mine and I am yours. I have claimed you as my own and I love you with all my heart.~~~
