Discovering God's Kingdom – Growing the Church

Wednesday 10 June

Dear Friend

I saw you yesterday as you were talking with your friends.

I waited all day hoping you would talk to me also. As evening drew near, I gave you a sunset to close your day and a cool breeze to rest you, and I waited…you never came. Hurt filled me, but I still love you because I am your friend.

I saw you fall asleep last night and I longed to touch your brow, so I spilled moonlight upon your pillow and face. Again I waited… wanting to rush down so we could talk. I have so any gifts for you.

You awakened late and rushed off for the day; my tears were in the rain. Today, you looked so sad and alone. It makes my heart ache, because I understand. My friends let me down and hurt me many times, but I love you. I try to tell you in the quiet grass.  I whisper it in the leaves and trees, breathe it in the colours of the flowers. I shout it to you in the mountain streams and give the birds love songs sing. I clothe you with warm sunshine and perfume the air. My love for you is deeper than oceans and bigger than the biggest want or need you have.

We will spend eternity together in Heaven. I now how hard it is on this earth.  I really know, because I was there.  I want to help you. My father wants to help you too. He is that way you know.  Just call me, ask me, talk to me.  It is your decision. I have chosen you and because of this, I will wait, because I love you.

Your friend

Jesus
