Ever tried writing a love letter to the owner and lover of your soul? I think everyone of us should try it one way or the other, it makes our hearts well up in gratitude and helps our souls not to forget all of his benefits….
To the lover of my soul
How precious am i in your sight
How refreshing it is to always have you by side
How is that the exact numbers of my hair are known to you
And my name tattooed on your palms
Oh! How a mother loves a child,
But your love for me is indescribable and incomparable
I am in awe of your love for me, Precious Jesus,
How can ever repay such depth and height of love?
What did i ever do to deserve such an overwhelming love?
The cares and desires of the world never seizes to try and snatch me out of your arms, still you hold me steady and tight
Many times, i feel undeserving of your love cos of my many wrongdoings, but you whisper into my ears that “darling, its a brand new day, your sins are remembered no more”
How i love you, darling Jesus
Christ, my heart, my soul and my joy
My rock, my strength and my help
My guide, my light and my glory
My meditations of you remain sweet and your thoughts gladdens my heart
In my darkest nights and lonely days when its feel like you are no where to be found, still i know your eyes are on me
Loving you has changed and transformed me,
You gave me beauty for ashes,
Oil of gladness for mourning,
And a beautiful garment of praise for heaviness
I seek no better identity than to be identified with you
In the midst of life hurdles and struggles, knowing that you love me casts away all my fears and gives me rays of hope and promise of sunshine
With you, impossibilities fade into possibilities and i walk on water because your love is a strength to my soul.
How i love you, darling Jesus!!
