January 31: Pillow Talk

Nightstand“I am my beloved’s, and his desire is toward me.”  (Song of Solomon 7:10)

Some of the most intimate conversations we have with our spouses occur while we lay in bed, in a darkened room, quiet, and nestled in the warmth of the covers.  The children are asleep, the phone is done ringing for the day, the television is quieted, and the house is at peace.

Intimacy in today’s world is immediately equated with sex.  However, true intimacy can more easily be related to communion and communication with unguarded truthfulness.  More simply put, pillow talk.

The Father desires those intimate moments with us, times of communion and communication with unguarded truthfulness.  He wants to hear from us our most private thoughts, our concerns, our joys, our fears, our victories, our praise, our disappointments, and our loving words of intimate worship.  Yet, we so thoughtlessly neglect this awesome privilege as we get caught up in our daily lives.

When was the last time you enjoyed “pillow talk” with the Father?  When was the last time you snuggled up close to him, nestled in the warmth of His presence, and shared the most private thoughts and intents of your heart?  Don’t you think it’s time for a good, intimate conversation with Him?

“I am my beloved’s, and his desire is toward me.”  Yes, His desire is toward you so make time for your “pillow talk” now.  Don’t wait until you’re too tired to talk, don’t wait till you’re too tired to listen.  Intimacy with the Father is not an option, it’s a privilege we dare not take for granted.

Father, put a hunger deep in my soul for intimacy with You; help me never to neglect our time together. Amen.

“The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.”  (Jeremiah 31:3)
