{He responds} I love you, beloved, and you were well worth the cost. Removed as far as the east is from the west, I see your sins no more. Behold, you are beautiful My love. Your eyes are like dove’s eyes. Made pure – washed clean – in the Blood. Beautiful, My love. Your eyes, they overwhelm Me. You think I overwhelm you, but you overwhelm Me! My love for you defies description. My heart is for you.  I AM steadfast and true. My love for you unchanging. Respond to Me. Melt into Me. Yield. I AM safe and My love shelters, protects, and restores. You are Mine. Continue reading “Alive in His Love (Moments with God)”
