Escort

Everywhere I go a perfect Gentleman escorts me.
He is always there.

I am free to barge out in front of Him or wander off at any time. I am free to choose to think for myself.

He loves me.
He takes care of me.
He opens doors for me.
He tells me secrets.

My Companion is not rude. He is never controlling. He is not legalistic.
Nor is he overbearing.

He exudes kindness.
He offers freedom.
He lavishes grace.
He practices gentleness.

We hang together. We eat together. We converse together. We travel together.

I surrender. He gives peace.
I release my agenda. He gives me His.
I seek. He reveals.
I call. He answers.
I hurt. He heals.
I fear. He encourages.
I wane. He strengthens.
I vex. He invites sanctuary.
I forget. He reminds.
I faint. He empowers.
I get inundated. He provides orderly completion.
I get distracted. He refocuses my attention.

He leads. I follow.
He reigns. I worship.
He gives ideas. I record them.
He comforts. I grieve.
He mends. I celebrate.
He opens. I pass through.
He intervenes. I praise.
He rescues. I rejoice.
He protects. I give thanks.
He prepares. I proceed.
He winks. I smile.
He manages. I rest.

He gives me love. I give His love back to him.
He gives me more love. I spill His love out to others.

My Escort is available
to anyone
who with a whole heart
will RSVP His invitation.

Matthew 11:28-30
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.

About ashleydwille

Author Ashley D. Wille was always searching for spiritual answers. “True and lasting satisfaction always proved just out of reach. Now, in midlife, I have come to find my soul satiated in God. Through sweet surprises, difficult climbs, and excruciating valleys, the Master’s hand has shaped me. All along the way, God has taught me many things. What He has taught me most is that many of my beliefs about Him were wrong.” Her book, My Journey Through the Cross, is a personal insight shared by an amazing woman. Through her profound experiences and inner struggles, Wille shows how she was able to break through false layers of thinking and move into a deeper relationship with God. Her beautiful journey is just waiting to be shared. If you are ready to live your life free of guilt and shame, you too can learn how to walk in spiritual freedom.
