Come take a walk with Me

and leave behind the cares of yesterday.

Come take some time aside,

for I’ll be there to hear you when you pray.

 

So many are the years

I know you’ve longed for change to come your way.

I’ve seen your many tears.

You felt deep down that I was far away.

 

If only you could see

how many times I tried to be your Friend.

If only you could know

how much I longed your broken heart to mend.

 

There is a secret place

within your heart, where heaven’s light will shine;

a place where you can know

My lasting peace to calm your troubled mind.

 

If you’ll open the door,

I will come in and never leave your side.

I’ll be your Everything.

I’ll be your Help, your Comfort and your Guide.

 

Come take a walk with Me.

Give Me your heavy burdens and your load.

My heart is meek and lowly.

In Me you will find rest along life’s road.

 

Come take a walk with Me.

It’s My desire to cheer your heart today.

My heart is full of love.

I’m close to you, I’m listening as you pray.

(Based on Matthew 11: 28-30)

 

The heart of Jesus is so tender and loving. I'm so thankful for the way He shows that love, over and over again, Despite our shortcomings, we are reminded of the depths of His goodness. His arms of love are always outstretched, beckoning us to find our rest in Him. The Lord inspired me with this poem 4 years ago, written as a kind of "letter of love", based on Matthew 11:28-30. I have also shared it in on another writer's site, in my first book poetry and on Facebook. I pray that it may bless readers. 

Blessings and love,

Christine

Lovely Christine! I used to be afraid of Jesus, or should I say afraid of committing to Him, I shied away from Him at every turn including His name. I heard a song by Big Daddy Weave, "You're gonna love Him" and I started to be less afraid of Him. I like how in your note above you speak about the heart of Jesus "tender and loving", and finally I am getting to know Him more. He is a tender and courting Lord that is for sure.
