Come Away with Me

“Come away with me…my [promised] bride.”
SOS 4:8 Amp

“Come away with Me,” beckons the Lord.

“Come away with Me. Make time to spend at My feet. Sit with Me and listen, even if I am silent. My Presence will fill you.

“Come away with Me, and I will take you aside from the crowd, from all the din and demands.

“When you come away with Me, you will leave behind the distractions of the valley, those circumstances the world attempts to throw at you. Climb the mountain slopes of splendor and breath in the rarefied air with Me.

“When you come away with Me, you will find rest. Rest in My Presence. Being with Me will change you; it will bring joy and peace to our aching soul.

“When you come away with Me, does it thrill you to be near Me? Does it comfort you? Does My nearness suffice?

“When you don’t come away with Me, you will feel something missing in your soul.

“When you don’t come away with Me, each circumstance will become another layer of detachment, as a veil of separation between us, hiding My Presence, and you will think you cannot find Me.

“When you don’t come away with Me, it saddens Me. Saddens Me that you do not desire Me above all others.

“Without Me, you will feel lost, though I am always with you.

“Without Me, you will veer off My chosen path, and your feet will tread a strange way.

“Without Me, you make busyness your god, and you will lose your peace and joy.

“Choose the good part, as Mary did. To sit at My feet. Then, the Holy Spirit will come as the dew of dawn to silently dispense His peace and comfort. In waves of coolness, He will breathe upon you like a refreshing wind.

“When darkness and loneliness loom over you, they will yet result in the richest and most rewarding of all spiritual experiences, for it is then you will see your darkness is but the overshadowing of My wings. Await the radiance of My glorious Light to fall from heaven that you might behold your precious Savior.

“Come. Come to Me. Listen to the words of My heart…to your heart. Words you long to hear. Words of comfort and love. I am your Shepherd. I will feed you; I will guide you; I will strengthen you. I will make you lie down in green pastures and lead you beside still waters. I will refresh and restore your soul.”

“My beloved said to me, ‘Rise up, my love,
my fair one, and come away.’”
SOS 2:10 TLB

Only Believe…or Dost Thou Stinketh?

Only Believe...or Dost Thou Stinketh

Only believe. That’s what the Lord tells us. Just believe! In the book of John, Jesus used the word believe 43 times. Many times more than any other book of the gospels. But wait…do we believe?

The Cranky Bride

The Cranky Bride

There she stands. Over in the corner. Sometimes a gloomy gus. Sometimes, stubborn. And quite often, cranky. Not the type you’d want to spend the rest of your life with. She thinks she is so holy, when, in fact, she is sadly mistaken. Her behavior has others whispering about her. Sometimes, she’s rebellious and forgetful. Distracted and too … Read More...

But mine, or yours, can never compare to the name of Jesus. What do we know about Him? In His Name… *demons bow, evil flees *our covenant … Read More...

The Horizontal Life

The Horizontal Life

News spread quickly and the man heard it: Jesus is here! He’s back in Capernaum. Reclining every day of his life, this man lay flat out on his mat, the mat of his past, present, and future. Paralysis had not only left this man’s body atrophied but also left his soul feeble. Tired of his immobilized, horizontal mat-life, tired of the … Read More...

The Hidden Workroom

The Hidden Workroom

Sliding into bed, I felt the cool softness of the freshly laundered sheets against my hot skin. I plopped my tired head down on the cushy pillow and sighed. I soon slipped away into that land of make-believe, that place of fantasy where thoughts and experiences of the day merge to produce an IMAX, full-color dream. Darkness surrounded me. I … Read More...
