There is a void inside you

that longs to be filled;

a place so vast and

so empty;

a place I designed for Me.

Let Me love you,

and allow Me to pour an abundance of My love

into that place;

the place inside your heart

that was designed by Me.

It was created by Me,

to be filled by Me, and poured into by Me.

There is no other source,

no other person,

and no other created being

who can fill you and love you.

No one does it better than Me.

Let Me love you past your place of agony

and your place of fear.

Allow Me inside your heart, and let Me wipe away your tears.

Let Me love you,

and restore what has been broken.

Let Me erase the times of disappointment,

wrecked dreams,

and shattered hopes.

Let Me be the One

who is in control.

Let Me love you,

even in all the subconscious places.

Let down the walls of your heart,

and allow Me to keep you safe.

Let Me love you.

I will pick up the broken pieces

and create one piece again.

I never meant for you to feel forsaken.

I have always been, and will always be, with you.

The trials of your heart were not intended to break you,

but to draw you closer to Me.

For where you are, is not where you’ll always be.

In My loving arms

that is where I want to place you.

I want to carry your burdens

and lighten your load.

I want to take your anxieties,

and trade them for My peace.

If you could see My smiling face,

you would understand that My love for you will never cease to be.

I know your thoughts.

I know the measure of your days.

I know every hair on your head.

I know because I created them.

There is nothing I can’t see, touch, or heal.

Let Me love you.

Let Me take you places

where you have never been in Me.

Let Me ignite a flame in the furnace of your dreams,

for I speak and anything can come into being.

I am the Alpha and the Omega…”

I am love.

I created love.

No one stands stronger than Me.

I can do anything.

Let Me love you.

Let Me show you;

all your heart requires can be found in Me.

If you forget how much I love you,

gaze upon that rugged cross.

See the stains of My blood still there.

You see, I loved you so much

that I sent Myself;

to pardon you,

to free you,

and most of all, so I could have a relationship with you.

I came in the form of a babe;

I humbled Myself

and walked a humble road before you,

to show you what real love is.

You see,

I gave My life

in exchange for yours.

I walked the road before you,

so you would know it could be done.

I humbled Myself

to death on a cross,

so your life would not be lost.

I rose again on the third day,

defeating death,

so you and I could be reunited again.

I rose with all power in My hands

and sent My Spirit,

so you would find reassurance in Him.

You are never alone,

and you are not defeated.

Trust in My love.

Trust in My power.

Trust in My abilities.

Most of all, let Me love you.

When you rise in the morning,

My heart is filled with joy.

I look upon My child and friend;

I long to hear you speak once more.

I am not impersonal, but personal.

I loved you enough to place Myself in harm’s way,

so in your heart I might be able to remain.
