I did the best I could to obey, but it was difficult to keep my hands to my side, especially when something was pretty, I just wanted to touch it. Even all these years later, I am still that way, maybe even worse. I just love beautiful things and, for me, part of completely appreciating something is reaching out and touching it. I just can't help it.
This time of year there are a few stores I could visit and not emerge from for hours because of all the pretty things they have in preparation for the Christmas season. The items to behold are endless and I want to reach out and touch all the things that mesmerize my eyes and heart. The things that make me take a quick breath when my eyes fall upon them, I have to see them with my fingers.
And handmade things, quilts and such, are especially captivating. I reach my hand out and touch the fabric to feel as my eyes take in the beauty of the stitches, the time, the love woven into the fabric pieces. It's as if I haven't completely taken it in until my eyes have beheld and my hands have held what is so beautiful.
And just as I reach out to touch the things that mesmerize me, the Father wants to reach down and touch you.
So the King will greatly desire your beauty;
Because He is your Lord, worship Him.
Question is -
Will you let Him? Or does the sign on your heart read "Look but don't touch"?
Oh, I hope it doesn't. His touch is so sweet, so intimate, and nothing compares to an encounter with Him.
He can be trusted, my friend, He won't drop you.
He won't damage you.
He won't break your heart.
Will you let Him touch you?
