Come Away With Me
I hear the Lord say to you, “Arise and awaken, my beloved”. I hear His Spirit sing over you, “It’s time to come away with me; it’s time to come and rest in my arms; it’s time to come away with me, my dear.
I have seen your struggle, I have seen your hardship. I have seen the drought that you have journeyed through. I declare over you that, in my arms, the drought is over. In my presence the struggle is finished. I speak to your spirit today and say, ‘Rise up and see the bright sun rising before you!’. Rise up and feel the warmth of its rays against your face. Allow the heat that comes from the sun to melt the ice that has kept you immobile and ‘stuck’ in the past.
Choose, today, not to look at the winter.
Choose, today, not to look at the fruitlessness of the last season.
Choose, today, to look at my face.
Choose, today, to believe my word.
Choose, today, to sing a song of hope and not of despair.
Choose, today, to focus on the warmth of the sun and not the cold of the winter.
Song of Solomon 2:10-11
My lover said to me, “Rise up, my darling!
Come away with me my fair one!
Look the winter is past, and the rains are over and gone.”
