Mine for All Time

"You are mine for all time" and eternity! (73) What a strong affirmation of acceptance!
Quite often I will deal with those who wrestle with issues stemming from abandonment at some point, by some one, in some significant way. Our human experience sets us up for this. We live in a spiritually suspect world where abandonment hisses from every corner. So, to hear, "you are mine for all time," directly comes against our fears of being "left completely and finally; utterly forsaken; deserted or given up on and withdrawn from." (online dictionary)
However, "abandon" also means to "yield (oneself) without restraint or moderation; to give (oneself) over to," much like we do when we totally surrender our lives to Christ.
What a joy to live in total abandon to the One who will never abandon us!
I am Awed by His love...dmc
