the letting in of God

it would seem to me that the season upon us
could be compared to the word 

for it is the season {for believers in messiah}
for fasting or penitence in preparation for easter

to me, it is an opening of a window
a "letting in" of God
to clean the house of my soul
with the spirit of His presence

{you know He's a gentleman and doesn't like to barge in without invitation}

i cherish a fresh breeze
but often, in my lazy state, i choose to leave my windows closed
drapes drawn
the dust of my habits and hangups finding comfortable homes in the corners of my sealed heart...keeping Him at arm's length

the road to easter, however, beckons me to "come"
i silence the noise of my life
is that the soft whisper of my Savior outside my window?

follow me, my beloved

how embarrassed i am that i hesitate to open my window
He stands

{He never tires of the waiting...that patience never ceases to amaze me}

i slowly lift the sash...

{He still loves me. He always loves me.}

and smell violets.

Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.
