I was thinking this morning of how birds build their nests, using whatever materials they have at hand, and when they are done, all those disconnected bits have become part of a brand new thing with a new purpose and a new direction in life.
That's how I think of my life before I met you, it was in thousands of tiny disconnected bits, and they all were just floating around with no form, like an undone puzzle, none of the pieces seemed to fit.
Then I met Jesus, who gathered all those little bits, shook out the bad, swept away the sin and dust of the past, and put them back together, according to His plan, lending His beauty, making a heart that beat for Him, one that would last.
Shaped and formed into a nest strong and snug, He didn't see it as an empty thing, but a container that would soon hold all the joy in the world, for into my new heart, a new love He would bring.
God brought us together, and suddenly my hearts-nest was full, brimming over with love and delight, and I knew my dream had come true, the love I'd hoped for was mine, and joyfully I gave all my love to you.
The wonder of it all continues every day, when I get to give and receive all this love anew, and I thank God for giving me this gift beyond words to express, this love you give to me, and I give back to you.
