How do I break through these walls? My desire is within reach. The curtain is torn and the richness of that special place is within my grasp, yet I struggle to reach it.

The letters written I go over each day in search of the heartbeat I desire to match in rhythm. He is so close, yet I keep a safe distance out of fear what may come. There’s really no reason for the fear; he has been always faithful. The perspective of the world creeps in to discolor the truth of his love.

It is up to me to bring down the walls, although he will be beside me to help. Brick by brick, we dismantle the wall to the point that I can see through the hole created into the glory of his place. Then my heart loses focus and the bricks have been replaced.

He whispers gently that I shouldn’t give up, while others yell my failures to me. His voice is the one I am to follow; his heart to beat with mine. I forever will keep chipping away at the wall, knowing his truth will hammer and drill through the hardest parts.

The times when we commune so close, I feel not of this world. There’s easy passage through the walls to enter into his place. His place that holds no fear, only mercy, grace and love, where we share our hearts in such a way that I know what’s on his heart.

His desires become mine, and I live them out for him in purpose for the goal. His place that he made and invites us all to come, is one I journey to everyday in heart, soul and mind. It’s not of this world, but yet it is. There’s connection brought by him.

His spirit shines through many with his word written on their hearts. His word, his heart, his desires are surging through me, and I am grateful that I can reach his place with no fear or no veils to block my entering into his presence.
