CONFINED BY LOVE


Possessed   by  love   for  Love  Himself








Confinement,  solitude,  seclusion;  words   that  speak  of  coming  into  a  state  o f stillness,  quietness or  for  some  aloneness  or  loneliness.  Can  I  say,  if  embraced  to  the  fullness   will  lead  the  soul  of one  so  lead  to  lie  down  in  green  pastures  beside  still  waters,  to  dwell  in  the  secret  place  of  the most  High,  under  the  Shadow  of  the  Almighty.  To  utter  with  such  total  abandonment  to  His call,   I  will  say  of  the  Lord, " He  is  my  refuge  and  my  fortress,  my  God  in  Whom  I  trust"
 This  place  of  intimacy  is  the  hearts'  refuge  and  protection  for  divine  conception.  But  first  it will need  a  fresh circumcision,  the  place  of  conception  be  cleansed  by  the  pouring  out  of blood  as   the  new  fertile  womb  waiting  in  readiness  for  the  coming  seed  to  bring  new   life.  This  holy  impregnation,  the  beginning  of  the  forty  weeks  of  confinement anticipating  the  birth  pangs   with profound  joy.
Bearing  fruit  only  possible  through  an  intimate  relationship  with  the Word   of  Life  Himself.
His  holiness  covers  her  as  a  husband  covers  his  wife  in  loving  embrace.  The   giving  and  taking  of  Love  becomes   a  holy  fire  encounter,  possessed   by  love.

More   than  an  awakening  as  the  kiss  on  the  lips  of  the  sleeping  beauty .  She  had  waited  a  thousand  years  for  the  consumation  by  fire. The  Spirit  of  burning  exchanged  her  soulish,  sentimental  love  of  being  in  love,  burnt  beyond  recognition  of  herself.  She  emerged  out  of  the  furnace  of affliction  to  find  within  her  a  caress  of  infinite  tenderness  that  beheld  her  heart.  She  gazed  into  His  eyes  of  fire,  they  would  not  let  her  go.  She  no  longer  felt   fearful  of   being      known  as  she  had  by   her  earthly  lovers,  this  was  a  safe  love.  She  ached  in  her  soul  to  return  His  ardour,  aflame  with  love.  A  ministry  for  her  Lord  became   ministry  to  Him,   forsaking  every  soulish  desire  for  His  sake :    A  PRISONER  OF  LOVE 

Acute  loneliness  in  the  soul;  a  dying  process.  When  its  work  is  done   the  deisire  for  solitude  welcomes,  in  fact  it  becomes  a  part  of  the  new  cry  of  the  resurrected  soul  for there  and  only    there  can  the  heart   be  truly  refreshed.  Being  with  those  who  have  not  been  this  way  can  become  a   trial.  But  even  this  battle  for  the  souls  ascent  is  in  itself  likened  to  a   crossing   over
treacherous  waters  on  a very  old  bridge, easier  to  go  back;  a   hasty  retreat  would  be  a   safer  decision.  At  least one  would  be   familiar  with  the  past.  To  not  even  look  back  is   just  the  first  hurdle.  That   which   was  once  declared  by  faith  now  becomes   the  life. 
An  alien  living  in  foreign  land,  not  belonging  to the   world  as  it   intrudes  on   the  peace  and   surrender,   finding  no  joy  in  what   it  has  to  offer.
Being  alone  becomes  comfortable  and   yet  loneliness  may  present  itself  as  torment  or  perhaps  grief.  The  Lover  of  your  soul  sojourned  on  earth  for  thirty  three  and  a  half  years,   living  on  borrowed  time,  so  too  is  the  one  who  lives  not  for  the  self  but  lives  for  the  One  who  gave  His  life.  The  soul  can  accept  it   too  is  just  passing   through,  but  to  live  as  though  from  another  realm  is  something  to  be experienced.
