A Bed of Love
"I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears."
Psalm 6: 6
King James Version
Sometimes we put on a mask of happiness during the day but our hearts are breaking and when we go to bed at night and nobody can see us, the tears flow. There are some days when it seems like everything has conspired against us and it makes the day seem very long and painful. However, when we go to bed and lay on the pillow of love, Jesus, He wipes our tears away with His loving kisses and pours a healing salve of understanding and compassion in our hearts. He leans over our beds and softly and gently whispers in our ears "I Love you".
There is no friend like Jesus! No one loves us like Jesus loves us. Thank You, Jesus, for being a friend who really cares about us and who never leaves us, not even for a minute. You are never too busy for us. Thank You for always being there and listening to us when we are hurting and our hearts are breaking. You are wonderful, Jesus. You are the lily of the valley and the bright and morning star. You are the King of kings and Lord of lords. All hail, King Jesus! Thank You for loving us especially when we hurt You.
Yes, there are times when people hurt us and we go to bed feeling sad and all alone. However, there are also times when we hurt our loved ones and friends and they go to bed with heavy hearts. A lot of times we're not even aware we have hurt them. May God forgive us if we have been guilty of saying thoughtless and unkind words to someone and he or she goes to bed with a broken heart because of us! Jesus didn't have a bed of love when He was here on earth so let's make Him a bed of love in our hearts so that He feels loved and wanted.
