The Bridegroom - Daily in Your Presence - June 3

Day 155


"At midnight the cry rang out: 
‘Here's the bridegroom!
Come out to meet him!'"
Matthew 25:6

My child, not even I know the time when I, your bridegroom, will return for My church and My children. Only My Father knows. Stay close to Me and keep the light on in the window of your heart. Watch with anticipation for My return. And when the time is right, My bride, you'll shout with joyful heart, "Here comes the groom!"

Lord, I can only imagine the wedding day, when You, my bridegroom, say to me, "Come!" With fluttering heart, and trembling hands, I'll join my long-awaited love and celebrate an eternity of joy in the home You have prepared for me. Lord, there is no other love but You. Your bride is ready!


The bridegroom never breaks His vows. He loves you today, tomorrow, and forever.
