Dear Jesus

Come to Me. Come to Me. Come to Me. This is My continual invitation to you, proclaimed in holy whispers.

Dear Jesus,

Your invitation makes my heart leap! How I long to hear Your holy whispers and respond with my whole being. So often, though, I’m distracted by the noise of my worries and the clamor of the world. Help me remember Your inviting Presence even when I’m too hassled to hear Your Love-whispers.

Beloved, you do well to ask for help in remembering. My chosen children have consistently forgotten Me and the great works I’ve done on their behalf. I made a dry path through the Red Sea for the Israelites, saving them from the pursuing Egyptians. Yet many of those former slaves remembered the tasty food they had eaten in Egypt better than they recalled My miraculous deeds to set them free. You also tend to “major on minors,” letting trivial matters distract you from Me. You forget that My sacrificial death and miraculous resurrection shed Light on each moment of your life. I want you to live vibrantly in this Light, increasingly aware of My nearness.

To help in your endeavor to remember, think of Me as the Lover of your soul: the One who delights in you now and forevermore. View yourself first and foremost as My beloved, since that is your ultimate identity. Fill your mind with Bible verses that convince you of My perfect Love for you. 

Come to Me at all times, My loved one. Pour out your heart to Me, for I am your Refuge. “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
~ Matthew 11:28

Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and all that night the Lord drove the sea back with a strong east wind and turned it into dry land. The waters were divided, and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with a wall of water on their right and on their left.
~ Exodus 14:21–22

Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.
~ Psalm 62:8
