Invitation to Intimacy

“Come to me”

Come to me and you will find a safe rest for your soul. Come to me, and I will transform you beyond imagining. Come to me all who’s hearts are weary and over-burdened. Come to me, whoever’s heart is shattered like glass. Come to me with your festering scars and cancerous sickness. Come to me, those who’s hearts are hungry and desperate with thirst. Come to me with unself-conscious abandon, as of a child to his Daddy. Come to me and I will never, ever turn you away.

Seek, and you will find. Knock, and the door will be opened. Ask, and it will be given to you. Do not worry about tomorrow, our Father knows what you need. Do not condemn yourself for what you did yesterday, I don’t, and neither does Papa. As my Daddy loves me, so he loves you. He loves you as much as he loves me. He is never disappointed in you. He sees all your decisions beforehand. He is delighted in you, and longs for you just as I do. You are the Beloved.

Come to me. Find me. Know me. If you know me, you know Daddy. Dive in headfirst. Close your eyes and leap. Let go of “religion”. Do not obsess over “spiritual growth”. Stop striving and just know that I am Love. I am crazy with love for you. Abide in my love. Soak it up. Breathe it in, deeply. Know it, fully. I. love. you. Before you were. Every moment. Right now. You are enough. My love is enough. My love is Life.

Come!

“[Father], I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one – I in them and you in me – so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.” John 17:22,23
