Someday, you'll wish you had made time for me...

Someday, you'll wish you had made time for me
You'll long for that comfort of being known and understood
Of being accepted and loved unconditionally and sensing it with you everywhere you go
You'll wish you could plug right in and feel it
And you'll remember all those times I invited you, reached out to you, tried to connect with you
But you were too busy for me

Someday, you'll need me
And I'll still be here and waiting
But it won't be like you've known me all along
You won't get that instant relief and comfort you'll be so desperately looking for
You'll have to grow to trust me
And it will take time
Eventually you will find in me what you're seeking, that deep love and understanding 
But you will endure pain in the meanwhile that you didn't have to 
Because you never got to know me when I called out to you

Yes, someday, you will wish you had taken the time to get to know me before...

Before your world changed, before it collapsed, before the heartache and pain set in, before the grieving and mourning in your soul...

Just know, when that day comes, I will be here as I've always been
Loving you, watching, waiting...
With open arms, open heart...

Yes,  I will be here when you're ready. 


I wrote this thinking of someone I love so desperately that I genuinely ache to connect with because I know how needful it is... And as I'm writing in my head, I am blessed, so blessed, to realize...  This is just how God feels about each and every one of us.  All the time.  As He constantly sends out invitations to come closer & we rush from one to-do to another...

I am so humbly grateful for this gift of godly insight He has bestowed on me.  Truly His wisdom and understanding are among the most tremendous gifts He's ever given me.  And as I'm faithful with it, He lavishes it on me all the more.  How much more full can my heart possibly be?

Thankful in this moment on our Thanksgiving Eve for Him walking me this hard place so I could see this situation from His perspective...  A heart hard pressed for the love of another...

Love Psalm for My Savior

Thankful for all of who He is... So grateful I just cannot contain - I am filled with praise welling up from deep within... Adoring, my soul worships Him - my God, my Jesus...  my One source of true, real, unconditional, holy love... The <best> love I have ever or ever will know... Matchless & unfailing... Faithful and enduring...

I am blessed beyond measure to be always cherished, chosen, treasured as precious... Beloved daughter of the Most High King.  I have been crowned with honor.  His grace and love adorn me.  I am clothed with dignity, and my beauty comes from His light shining brightly from within.  I am His.  I have been spoken for. and will always belong to my Jesus - blessed Lover of my soul.  Who never lets go, never disappoints, who is always with me and for me.  

I delight in the One whom my soul loves. 

My Beloved is mine and I am His forever!

Nothing can separate us - no thing in life, no storm in my mind.  His love covers me wherever I go.  His light washes over and radiates from within me as I spend time with Him. His grace sustains me, and His truth heals and makes me whole.  His mercies never fail and are new to me each day.  He is ever with me... And as I come to seek Him, I find Him all the more.  

He never withholds Himself from me, but pours out all He is into me and gives every good thing He knows I need. 

He is my Love.  My precious Savior and my Lord of all, supreme over everything. 

He is my blessed Jesus.

I am in awe of His wonder and glory.  I praise Him, how He loves me so... Always has, always will - never lets me go.  

"Jesus, Jesus, Jesus - sweetest name I know..."  It's true He meets every need, every longing is filled and every answer found in Him.  I draw myself in, hiding my heart away in Him, and He keeps my heart filled with song as I go. ❤️


I hope you'll take a minute to listen to Fancesca Battitstelli's "So Long" - it mirrors how embracing Jesus as the love of my life has really changed everything...


Until next time, you are loved!!!  So loved!!!  Remember and hold on to that!! ❤️
