A Love Letter.....



"Of course I love you!" My Beloved says.
" I have loved you with an everlasting Love; I have drawn you with Lovingkindness.
I will never forsake you, I will never leave you. I know your sitting down and rising up. I know all your ways. If you come up to Heaven, I'm here. If you make your bed in hell, I'm there too. If you take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea- still, I will lead you. Not even death can separate you from my love.  My mercies are new every morning, they endure forever. You, my Love, my Bride, have ravished my heart. I have set my seal upon your heart. For my love is as strong as death..it is a most vehement flame.  Many waters cannot quench my love for you. Nor can floods drown it.  If your foot slips, my mercy will hold you up.  When you call for me I will answer you in the secret place of thunder. 
I will give you beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for morning.  I will give you a new name. Your righteousness will go forth as a brightness, and your salvation as a lamp that burns. You will also be a crown of glory and royal diadem in my hand. You will no longer be forsaken or desolate. For I, the Lord, delights in you. 
I, the Lord, will arise over you and my Glory will be seen upon you. 
You shall be called Sought Out.
