Come Away


Father and Son, originally uploaded by WisDoc.

Come away my beautiful one...I am now going to allure her; I will lead her into the desert and speak tenderly to her.....let me see your face, let me hear your voice; for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely....for God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son
Songs 2:10 Hosea 2:14 Songs 2:14 John 3:16

Do you know that God loves you? I mean, really loves you? He doesn't love you because He must. He loves you because... He loves you. He loves your company, the sound of your voice, your face. He loves you so much that He watched His only Son die a terrible death and didn't intervene when He had every power to do so. Why? Because He loves you and wanted to set you free. You. He loves you. He'll stop at nothing to show you that He loves you. He'll even get you in a corner so that you are desperate and have no choice but to look up into His face. Why? Because He loves you. No other reason.

Love that reminder about being desperate . . . and finally look to God. He's been there all along! No greater love. . .
