Letter to a Prodigal Bride
Hi you. Haven’t seen of heard from you in years. It’s been so many years from the day you stepped out of my door. The seconds, minutes, hours, days and years seems to go by like a heart beat. In all the craziness you left our home I never got the chance to say goodbye and how much I love you. All I can remember is a broken girl I could not help. A girl who needs my love, but she could not receive it.
I still sometimes wonder what made you leave. I knew we had problems but who doesn’t. Your hatred for me after that all I could not understand. It hurt me you know. All the lies, rumors and accusations you made about me. But I found that when all the pain subsided I had more room to love you even more. I forgave you along long time ago. After all you have done I still love you like God loves His son, unconditionally. Many say I’m crazy wasting all my time on standing and waiting for you.
Many brides came along but my eyes and heart belongs to no one but you. Even if you don’t accept my love I will still love you like Hosea loved Gomer, like Christ loved me till this very day. I want my love for you to reflect Christ love for His bride, ecclesia the church.
Many nights and days I lay and wonder how you are. I pray that God will keep you safe in a far distant land. Some day soon I know I will see your face again. But in Gods timing. My bride even if I can’t contact you, I know that God reminds you of me. The day is dawning near when you will see me as I am and not how the enemy lied to you about me.
“I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough..” ― Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook
See you soon
