~I'd Rather Have Jesus ~

 

A Letter From Jesus

I have loved thee with an
everlasting love: therefore
with lovingkindness have
I drawn thee.   Jer. 31:3


Dear Friend,

 

I love you so much, and I care about you. I saw you yesterday as you were walking with your friends. I called to you. I wanted to talk with you, and I waited, but you did not answer me. Still, as evening drew near, I gave you a beautiful sunset to close your day and a cool breeze to rest you.

I saw you fall asleep last night and I wanted to touch your brow, so I spilled moonlight on on your pillow and across your face. I have so many gifts for you, but you awakened late this morning and rushed off to work. Will you call me later? Will you seek me? My tears were in the rain.

Today you looked so sad, so all alone. I understand; my friends let me down many times, too. Oh, I love you! If you would only listen to me: I really love you! I show you in blue skies, and in the quiet green grass; I whisper it in the leaves on the trees and breathe it in the colors of the flowers; I shout it in the mountain streams and clothe you with warm sunshine. My love for you is deeper than the oceans and bigger than the biggest want or need of your heart.

If only you knew how much I - and my Father - want to help you. I'll keep saying this to you: Come to me! Don't forget that I am always near. I have so much to share with you. I'll wait, because I love you, but it's really up to you.

 

Your Friend,

 

Jesus
