Tears from Heaven

God’s Thoughts to Me

Oh, Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones God’s messengers! How often I wanted to gather your children together as a hen protects her chicks beneath her wings, but you wouldn’t let Me (Matthew 23:37, NLT).

A God who Weeps

Lord, when I look at you and your outstreched arms, longing, weeping over Jerusalem, sorrow fills my heart. You knew Destruction was approaching like a ruthless monster, who voraciously wanted to devour the jewel of your affection.

You wanted to gather the apple of your eye under your wings like a hen gathering her chicks. You wanted to cherish them … snuggle them … and love them even though you knew they were a city that killed the prophets and stoned Pappa’s messengers!

You wanted to win the heart of the beautiful Lady Jerusalem, you wanted to sweep her off her feet, to take her away in your carriage built of the wood of Lebanon … a carriage with posts of the silver of your smile … with a canopy of the gold of your love and purple cushions to remind her that she is your royal princess.

Those outstreched arms, instead, were rejected, nailed to the cross. You were a man of sorrows acquainted with grief. And still you heart uttered words of forgiveness for you knew they did not know what they were doing.

Lord, as you look at the world and see your bride waiting for her Bridegroom to return, you whisper love filled words, asking us to wait patiently for it is not Pappa’s will that any should perish in the coming worldwide destruction, but that all would come to you … to your waiting outstreched arms … to be redeemed.

Much love xx

      Yes, His love is not something that I think we will ever be able to get over from, for it it endless … vast … as deep as the deepest oceans and deeper still … eternal just like Him.
      Much love to you, sweet one

  1. What a blessing — this amazing love. Tender, warm, abundant in grace. Like a mama bird holding her babes under her wings. A love that patiently waits….yes, these waiting outstretched arms. Thank you, friend, for these reminders of the tenderness and magnitude of God’s love.

    • Dear Ashley
      Yes, I know from experience that if was not for this patient love desiring to cherish me, I would have been completely lost. Much love to you, my friend.

      It breaks my heart when I think how long I have been a wayward child, and yet, when I returned He just gathered me in His Loving Embrace!!! No condemnation, speeches or anything. Not even listening to my excuses and repentance speech … just a big, big Father hug.
      Hope the lion’s roar is a bit better now, sweet one!
