~So...this is love~

I can’t explain why… but I feel embraced by the Lord tonight. I’m not sure why, because I’m not sad or upset….but, wow.. I can barely stand. I have tears that are just streaming from my face, because I can feel the presence of my Lord holding me and telling me that I am His child. Kind of like I'm in the garden alone with Him. It's so wonderful...

You know? Being younger… I can honestly say that I’ve never experienced real love… that is….until the sweet day that the Lord called my name and chose me to be His. Ever since then my heart has been given away to the One who makes me feel whole. That kind of Love just scoops me off my feet and makes me want to be a better person.

The way He chooses to speak to my heart, the way He chooses to direct me and guide me, and the way He lets me know that I am His…….wow… it truly just makes me weak in the knees. My knees get so weak that I can’t even stand… I’ve finally realized why the common prayer position is on your knees, not just as a way to humble ourselves before God….

…but....with me...because He just makes me want to surrender everything that I have...so that I may embrace the comfort of His unfailing Love ….and, WOW, it‘s a Love so strong that... moments like this, I can‘t even stand… but He catches me when I fall. I’m convinced that He catches me with His hands…only His hands are disguised as my knees, because when I‘m on my knees… there is this strong sense of enveloped comfort that I feel....truly an amazing grace.

I am not reluctant...AT ALL... to say that He has my heart, my whole heart…. And the way that He can strum the strings of my heart…..brings passion unlike any other. Makes me want to stay in the garden with Him. Always.

I come to the garden alone
While the dew is still on the roses
And the voice I hear, falling on my ea
rThe Son of God discloses

And He walks with me
And He talks with me
And He tells me I am His own
And the joy we share as we tarry there
None other has ever known

He speaks and the sound of His voice
Is so sweet the birds hush their singing
And the melody that He gave to me
Within my heart is ringing

And He walks with me
And He talks with me
And He tells me I am His own
And the joy we share as we tarry there
None other has ever known

I'd stay in the garden with Him'
Tho the night around me be falling
But He bids me go; through the voice of woe
His voice to me is calling

And He walks with me
And He talks with me
And He tells me I am His own
And the joy we share as we tarry there
None other has ever known

Coming to the garden...with a little room to grow.

How are you growing my friend, in your new surroundings?

Really blessed by your post, there is no other feeling then when the love of our LORD and our devotion and love for Him meet for just a fraction of a moment; no joy like that.
I can't believe you are starting CMT, Lucky Girl!

Blessings in Him,
