My eyes are being opened, my heart filled. The empty and scared places healed. There’s an awakening taking place.
My God is not the impersonal God I believed Him to be for so long. He is the lover of my soul. Lover? Really.
Not long ago I would have thought that terminology to be sacrilegious. I would have cringed and thought that calling God your lover was over the top! My mind was stuck in places of religious terminology, that God never intended to to be. I was stuck in my thinking, equating lover with sexuality.
God is my lover. He loves me. He loves me. HE LOVES ME!
Nothing I can say or do will ever change that. He calls me beautiful, holy, and blameless. On the days when I turn from Him, He still loves me. When I blatantly choose to sin, He still loves me. When I feel like I’m coming undone, He wraps His arms around me and holds me close.
He is my lover!
He is awakening me to see who He truly is. He is showing me His love, His power, His grace, His mercy, His majesty.
And I am in AWE!
