Love

I am my beloved's, and his desire is for me. Song of Solomon 7:10

Today is Valentine's day. I can say that how I am spending today is very different than I have done in the past. This year, I'm spending my Valentine's day with God. The one who IS love. So this blog is a love letter to Jesus.

Dear Jesus, first I want to thank you for speaking to me through Song of Solomon 7:10. "I am my beloved's" and indeed I am. You have chosen me. You have captivated my heart in a way that it I cannot explain. This past year has been so crazy! You took me to Mexico and really broke down who I was while there. My view of you has changed drastically.

You took me away from everything I knew so that I could get to know everything about you.

Thank you for using me to do Your will and to love on Your people. Thank you for working through my life in so many ways. No one and nothing compares to your love, Jesus. You have set me apart for this season in my life and I want to say Thank You for that. Thank you for guarding my heart and taking me off display so that You can be all that I have and all that I want. Even though I'm single, I'm not lonely. You have brought me into greater intimacy with you. You are still at work in my heart and in my life, but I am enjoying every minute of it. You have taken me into the darkroom so that you can develop the daughter of You that you have intended me to be. I'm not perfect, but you love me the same even when I fail. You pick me up off the ground, brush off the dirt, and encourage me to keep walking and striving toward you. You have given me a heart that is after you and creating a heart that is of you in me.

"and his desire is for me." Jesus, You desire me. That is a big word. DESIRE. Not, you want me. but You desire me. Wow. That alone is powerful. Jesus you chase after me with your relentless love. You never stopped running after me. In all my days, You never left me alone. In all things, you go before me. You have good things for me and I thank you for the blessings you have already revealed to me. You desire me. The girl that you have made me to be is exactly who you want me to be and who you desire.

Jesus, I love you. I pray that you continue to grow and stretch me. Bring me to new places and lead me to places where I have to trust you completely. I ask that you use me everyday someway for your glory and for your light to be shown.

Love your daughter,
Merisa

I want to end with lyrics from a song that has been speaking to me a lot in this season that I am in..

Your Presence is all I need
It's all I want, all I seek and
Without it, without it there's no meaning
Your Presence is the air I breathe
The song I sing, the love I need and
Without it, without it I'm not living
I will exalt You, Lord, I will exalt You, Lord
There is no one like You God
I will exalt You, Lord, I will exalt You, Lord
No other name be lifted high
There will be no one like You
And no one beside You
You alone are worthy of all praise
There will be no one like You
And no one beside You
You alone are worthy of all praise

I Will Exalt by Amanda Cook
