A Letter to My Dear Friend and My Dearest Friend

My dear friend,

I am holding you up in prayer.  I know that you are holding me up, too. 

Ecclesiastes 4: 9-12 

9 Two are better than one,
       because they have a good return for their work:

 10 If one falls down,
       his friend can help him up.
       But pity the man who falls
       and has no one to help him up!

 11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
       But how can one keep warm alone?

 12 Though one may be overpowered,
       two can defend themselves.
       A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.

Our redemption is SO near, why would we be assaulted if otherwise? The flames lick at my wounded heart.  The pressure is intense, but this is the closest to Hell we will EVER know, for our Savior has conquered the grave.  He sits at the right hand of the Father and intercedes on my behalf…His spirit resides within me and though I wait here in a dry and desolate land, my soul is content in the promise of His unfailing word.  My spirit groans within me longing to be clothed in His righteousness in the heavenly dwelling where I am at home.  I long to look upon the One who paid the debt for my sin, the very One who is desperate to touch a dying and decaying world.  I praise Him despite my foes who are eager to try me for an unjust crime to which their imaginations create to give fodder for their own foolishness.  I pray for them, for their ignorance slanders not my name, but His.

“Lord, You are good!  Your love endures forever!  My soul is quenched by the Living water and my frame is strengthened by one Word from your heart to mine.  I am in awe at the splendor of Your existence and I yearn to proclaim your name from the rooftops!  How long will you put up with the defamation of Your name?  I long to defend One who needs no defense!  I long to stand for the One whose very presence none can fathom!  My soul will only rest in you, yet it shall never remain silent until you sit on your rightful throne, in heaven and on Earth.”

Though none go with me, still I will follow….

    Couldn’t have said it better myself. Praise Jesus!
