Oh My Beloved. How I love to hear you speak, sing, play instruments and pray to Me.
Yes, Dear One, I love your voice. How sweet is the aroma of your praise in My nostrils.
Your prayers are like incense to Me, and the lifting of your hands like an evening offering. This is the place where our hearts connect, My Child.
Everyday, I look forward to your sweet voice in My ear. For as we commune, the atmosphere of heaven comes upon you.
The fragrance of Christ is poured out into your very being. The Spirit in you overflows with My precious Oil. My robes are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia.
It flows down upon you, Beloved, and through Me, your body is healed, your mind is at peace, your emotions are calmed. My fragrance in you becomes a healing balm to all those around you, the fragrance of the knowledge of the Glory of your God spread throughout the earth.
Arise my Love, and come away from the world. In the cleft of the Rock, let Me see you, let me hear your voice, for it is sweet, in the Secret Place we are as One.
