Awhile ago, as I had my morning devotion, I suddenly felt tears flowing down my eyes. I thought today is just another day of tears with Jesus until I found myself weeping already then I remembered what historians said about the apostle Peter, and the reason why he wept most of the time. Peter’s answer on why he weeps was “Desiderio Domini” which means “I dearly long to be with my Lord.” And, as I weep today with Jesus, I asked Him a lot of Whys?
I asked Him: Why do You have to die?
He said: Because my death will give you life. (John 3:16)
I asked Him: Why me?
He said: Because I love you. (Romans 5:8)
I asked Him, Why do You love me?
He said: Because that’s who I am. (1 John 4:8)
As I closed my Bible and wiped the tears that wets my face, I said to myself, “Desiderio Domini.” I moved on and started my day then I realized that today is the start of the so-called Love Month, and my Ultimate Lover (Jesus) just made me cry reminding me how much He loves me.
I’m not weeping anymore, but now I feel so LOVED!
Jesus, Why are you so sweet? ♥
