love letters...

Do you ever sit and wish for a sign from God? A sign, maybe a gentle nudge, or maybe a whack on the head? As I sat quietly in my bed the other evening I asked God for something; anything, just a tidbit to calm my anxious soul. I searched the sight for just the right verse but to no avail. Finally, after I had decided to just let it go and let God answer in His time, not mine, I got a phone call from my dearest friend. She read me a "letter" that her daughter had just read to her. It spoke so deeply to me that I wanted to share it with you.
Cry on my Shoulder

My beautiful Bride,
You are never alone, My beloved. When you hurt, I hurt, and it breaks my heart to watch you cry without me. I am here with you, desiring to be the shoulder your tears fall on. I too walked the world broken, my love. We will work through any and all things together, My bride. I can and will heal your broken heart. Call out my name in your dark hours, and I will hold you. Will you give Me a chance to love you back to life again? I promise that you will see the light of a new day and joy will come again.
Love, Your Prince who will wipe away your tears

"He will once again fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy" Job 8:21

I am sorry that I do not know the author to give credit but I do know the name of the book is, "Love Letters from God"

May this Season of Joy remind all of us that we do indeed have our own Knight in shining armor that wants to sweep us off of our feet each and every day. Have a Blessed weekend.


  1. Yes, indeed! I keep trying to convince my husband that he's been smacked in the head a couple of times and he's still not paying attention.
    What a timely call and what a beautiful letter.
    Thanks so much for sharing!
    Hope you are feeling better soon. : )

  2. Wonderful. Thanks! One of my favorite books (but it's REALLY hard to find) is "The Ravished Heart" by Iverna Tompkins.
