His arms outstretched.
His hands open expectantly waiting for me to take them.
His gentleness wafting in the air like a sweet perfume; surrounds me, beckoning me closer.
I take his hands as he pulls me onto his lap.
I settle to his side and smile up at him feeling safe, protected and loved.
He lovingly touches my hair, my cheek as I rest my head on his chest.
He says to me, “My child do you love me?” With confidence I exclaim, “I do!”
I hear his steady heartbeat and I feel safe, protected, loved.
He says to me, “Child do you trust me?”
I try to still myself as my heart beats wildly in my chest.
Tears brimming in my eyes I whisper, “I do”.
He says, “Here there is no fear, come boldly to me. I long to fill the desires of your heart yet unspoken.”
My heart stirs in renewed confidence and with courage I lift my eyes to meet his love filled gaze.
I begin to pour out my hearts unspoken yet deepest desires.
Boldly I come before his throne and I am met with gentleness, mercy and grace.
His love surrounds me like a soft warm blanket reassuring me as I draw close.
He nods as he listens intently, his face radiant.
He says, “My child tell me more”.
