Love God by Delighting in His Words
In her mind, the young man was handsome, strong, wise, and everything she had ever dreamed of having in a husband. Words could not describe the joy she felt when he asked her to marry him! But then, war broke out. He was drafted into the army and sent overseas. Before leaving, he promised that they would be married as soon as he returned.
The longer he was away, the more her love for him increased. Every day she longed to hear from him and anxiously waited for letters from him. When one arrived, she put everything else aside and read every word he had written. Once was not enough, though, and she read his words several more times. She pictured him talking to her and remembered all the times they had enjoyed together. Every letter was a treasure.
The written words of Jesus are His “love letters” to us.
