My Love…

And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. Solomon writes in the Songs 4:1 Behold, you are beautiful, my love, behold, you are beautiful!
I want to share this glorious experience of joy, peace, and love that I felt reading John Bunyans Grace Abounding.. reflecting on a sermon these words singing through his head  “behold, thou art fair, my love; behold thou art fair” these two words, “my love” the chief subject matter of the message. .. Christ’s love continues when under temptation and desertion.
If it is so that the saved soul is Christ’s love even when under temptation and desertion, then, poor tempted soul, when you are assaulted and afflicted with temptations and the hiding of His face, think on these two words, ‘ my love’, still.
Whilst driving home these two words came again, and i said in my heart, What will I get by thinking on these two words?  No soon as the moments passed my heart began to warm “you are My love, you are My love” yet these words grew stronger and stonger and warmer and warmer I began to look up.
Yet between hope and fear, I still replied in my heart, “but is it true? Is it true? To which, that sentence fell upon me, “He.. wist not that it was true which was done by the angel” Acts 12:9
Then I began to give place to the word, which with power did over and over make this joyful sound within my soul, “You are My love, you are My love, and nothing will seperate you from My love.” And with that my heart was filled full of comfort and hope, and now I could believe that my sins would be forgiven me. Yes, I was now so taken with the love and mercy of God, that I remember I could not tell how to contain myself until I got home.
