Love Letter to a King

The sun has not yet risen my Lord.

As the tide rises and kisses the shore, so does the anticipation within me, alluring me from my slumber. I wonder if you will be there.

Quiet as a church mouse I slip out of my room and down the stairs; careful not to wake the slumbering court and cut short our secret rendezvous.

Down the hall and into the front room I arrive at our meeting place. Are you here, my Lord? I am calling. Begging you to come.

How I long to rest in the arms of the one I call King. King Jesus.

I have snuck away with you today not because I need you but because I want you. For you have changed me in such a way that I delight at the mere thought of your presence. You show me rainbows in rainstorms and laughter in sorrow. You hold me up when I want to fall down and your shadow is my constant companion.

My King, I have come to you this morning while the stars still temper the darkness to see if there is anything I can do for you. Can I sing? Can I dance? Can I bring a smile to your face? In a world of so much torment where the sorrows of your people must at times burden you, how can I enchant your heart?

Today, my King, I will love you. I will love you with all my soul and all my mind and all my heart. And, I will love your people for each one is your child and to each one you are King.

Love,

Your enraptured servant

Oh Spring,

This is AMAZING! You need to publish this post somewhere. Such passion, such beautiful words. I know it was pleasing to the King, it was pleasing to his child, too.

Your Friend,
Sonya

Very nice... I enjoyed reading your letter. That was beautiful. I would like to see you continue this or maybe do a book of these. This is great.

Absolutely beautiful, Spring. Such vivid imagery, and an intimate, beautiful description of our hearts for the Lord and our time with Him.

Have you heard Brian and Jen Johnson's song "A Little Longer"? The opening lines are: "What can I do for you, what can I bring to you, what kind of song would you like me to sing?..." Your post reminded me of this beautiful song.

Blessings to you, my friend.

Hi Spring... I'm sorry it took so long to get back to you. I ABSOLUTELY believe that many people would be interested in reading your "Love Letters to THE King". There are many people that struggle with communicating their feelings even with the King and I think that by reading your letters it could help them out.

I personally think they're beautiful.
