Love’s Seal

 

I have sealed you
with My love
so you can
lean on Me

as we walk together
embracing
Mine
you’ll always be.

A laid down life is embraced by God.

“His left hand is under my head, and his right hand embraces me. Who is this coming up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved. Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm; for love is as strong as death . . . “. Song of Solomon 8:3,5,6. NKJV

Open

 

Open your heart
to Me
and do not be
afraid

to take part in
My sufferings
for this
you’re also made.

A laid down life is tested.

“I opened for my beloved, but my beloved had turned away and was gone. My heart leaped up when he spoke. I sought him, but I could not find him; I called him, but he gave me no answer. The watchmen who went about the city found me; they struck me, they wounded me . . .If you find my beloved . . .tell him I am lovesick! Yes, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend.” Song of Solomon 5:6,7,8,16 NKJV

Truly Pleasing

 

Seek Me, My love
and do not let
anything keep
you from Me

for I alone
am the One
whose love is
truly pleasing.

A laid down life is awakened to His love.

” ‘I will rise now,” I said, “And go about the city; in the streets and in the squares I will seek the one I love.’ Scarcely had I passed by them, when I found the one I love. I held him and would not let him go . . . Do not stir up or awaken love until it pleases.” Song of Solomon 3:2,4,5

Fragrant Love

 

My name is
a poured forth
ointment
covering all of you

a fragrant oil
is My love
that fills you
through and through.

A laid down life has His love poured out on it.

“Your love is better than wine. Because of the fragrance of your good ointments, your name is ointment poured forth.” Song of Solomon 1:2,3 NKJV

Preserved

 

You are called
sanctified
preserved
in Me

kept in
My love
and eternal
mercy.

A laid down life is kept from stumbling out of His reach.

“To those who are called, sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ: mercy, peace and love be multiplied to you. . . .keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our LORD Jesus Christ unto eternal life. Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy , to God our Savior who alone is wise, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever, amen.” Jude 1,2,21,24 NJKV

Build Your House

 

Blessed are you
as you build your home
with love
and understanding

for your family always
finds peace there
and shelter from
the world’s clamoring.

A laid down life makes their house a home.

Enraptured

 

You will be blessed
with what I give you
and rejoice in the life
you live

enraptured with
the love you find there
the beauty and grace
that exists.

A laid down life is enraptured by God’s love.

“Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice with the wife of your youth. As a loving deer and graceful doe . . .always be enraptured with her love.” Proverbs 5:18,19 NKJV

Child Of God

 

Behold how much
I love you
for now you’re called
My child

abiding in Me
and Me in you
My Spirit
testifies.

A laid down life is called “child” by God.

“Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Now he who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. And by this we know that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us.” 1 John 3:1,24 NKJV

Kept

 

 

Set your love
upon Me
make Me your
dwelling place

for I can
deliver you
and keep you
in all your ways.

A laid down life is covered by God and His truth.

“He shall cover you with His feathers. His truth shall be your shield and buckler. Because you have made the Lord your habitation, no evil shall befall you. For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. Because he has set his love upon Me , therefore I will deliver him.” Psalm 91:4,9,11,14 NKJV

Abide In My Love

“As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My  love.”  John 15: 9 NKJV

The definition of abide is: 1.) to live; dwell , 2.) to endure ,  3.) to remain faithful to, 4.) to watch or wait for.

Thank You, Lord, for a love we can live in. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Where else
can I go , Lord?

Only You
have life

and a love
that sustains me

as in You
I abide.

God bless you as you live in His loe today!
