Come away my beloved

God calls us, His beloved, to live under the shelter of the gate, for He has betrothed us to Himself, and though we are sometimes indifferent toward Him, His love for us is at all times a flame of fire. His passion never cools. His longing for our love and affection is deep and constant.

We should not wait for an opportunity to have more time to be alone with Him. We should take it now and leave the tasks at hand. Nothing will suffer. Things are of less importance than you think. Our time together with Him is like a garden full of flowers, whereas the time we give to things is as a field full of stubble. He loves you, and if you can always, as it were, feel His pulse beat, you will receive insight that will give you sustaining strength.

He bore your sins and He wishes to carry your burdens. You may take the gift of a light and merry heart, for His love dispels all fear and is a cure for every ill. Lay your head upon His breast and lose yourself in Him. You will experience resurrection life and peace; the joy of the Lord will become your strength; and wells of salvation will be opened within you.
