Soon, my Darling, oh so very soon, you will be at rest forever in my arms.
You are my Glory and my Delight. I will never stop fighting for you. Never ever.
I am making all things new. Everything is being readied for My coming to you.
Yet, it is a broken world, but I am redeeming it. Now you must look full into the face of despair. So many have no hope for a life beyond this one. It grieves my heart and so it does yours, because you are My imprint upon this world.
So yes, you wait.
I have seen every tear you shed in the waiting. I know it is grueling and often hard to understand. But you see you aren’t ready for our Wedding. The most gorgeous one there ever has been or will be is soon, but not now.
My Darling, we must yet be separated. You are in the land of preparation. Every moment has the purpose of getting you ready. And it’s the kind of ‘getting ready’ not just for the Wedding but for Forever.
You see, you are to be bejeweled and sparkling. Every moment of sadness where you turn to me is another precious stone for your crown. Every heart-wrenching place of longing for me is a glistening diamond sewn into your gown. For if you didn’t have the chance to desire Me, would you truly appreciate me as your Bridegroom, your future Husband?
Yet Dear One, I want you to know it is hard for my heart too. Although I see all things as they will be, I long to have our present be together, face to face. Just because I am the Triumphant One, doesn’t mean I don’t yet have to bear my heart for you as I ever live to intercede. My joy is not yet complete, because you aren’t Home yet.
So, never doubt how I work all things for our Coming Union. It is why I exist as God, that your glory might be Mine, untarnished, incorruptible, spectacular forever. I am making your Home, your mansion, your Garden—like Eden, every moment is closer to its fruition.
Lift your eyes to the hills. In the mossy low mountains, and snow-capped heights, as you contemplate their beauty, remember it is only dim. As you look to me and I fill you with delight, remind yourself it is just a faint glimmer. Then imagine the joy which reality will be!
Oh, My Darling, don’t lose heart. I have indeed overcome all that is between us and soon every eye will see it as I claim you forever. Breathe in and out, every motion a grand anticipation.
And yes, the glittering colors of our future Home are made of all who share the hope of Forever. But, many, so many don’t know it yet. Work for the Great Coming Day of the Wedding Feast of the Lamb. Spread my truth, my hope, my Gospel far and wide. Every kindred, tongue, tribe and nation will gather as one Darling Bride. And yes, our joy will be complete.
All my love,
Your adoring, awaiting Bridegroom
I am wife to a wonderful man, mama to three precious now-little-but-soon-will-not-be loves. Each born in a different place--two states including 2 states and 2 countries. I am a farm girl who found her heart in the city. I can now claim fluency in 3 languages :: English, Spanish & Hungarian.This combined with the all-too-true 'mommy brain' explains much regarding my mental state most days;) I am a sojourner longing for Home. Yet, in my messy and broken, I embrace the moments given with all I have. I am seeking, praying, and learning again and again that it is for His Glory I live. My prayer is that my little life would make much of Him! I write regularly at Abigail Alleman.
