Like in the movies, you know?

Originally posted as Facebook note on December 30, 2010. It is so amazing to see how my heart once cried out to be so madly in love with Jesus and, although I do not yet know the extent of His love for me, I have fallen for Him and He is all the Man I need!

I have been seeking, desperately craving for someone to love me before I love them. Someone who seeks me and professes their undying love for me. Like in the movies, you know?

And this morning, it hits me like a ton of bricks…I have that! There is Someone who loves me THAT much! Who sits by waiting for me to call on Him, to gush about Him, to dream of my future with Him! Why haven’t I seen it? Why have I been blinded by the imitation that this world keeps throwing at me? NOTHING COMPARES TO THE LOVE GOD HAS FOR ME!!! Nothing! No man, not my child, not my family, not my friends! My hopes and desires rest in Him and when I desperately fall in love with Him, like I have been so craving to do with someone on earth, nothing else will matter!!

A couple of nights ago during a Prayer and Praise, I heard a few people cry how much they loved God. To be honest, I thought it to be a bit weird. But now? Now, I am jealous of them! I want to fall madly, deeply in love with my Savior! With the One who loved me first, and professed His love for me on the cross! Like in the Bible, you know? 🙂

Just had to share!
In His Loving Arms,

Excerpt from Beth Moore’s study that caused my revelation: “You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you?” (Gal. 3:1). Who has made us think that all lesser loves which are mere shadows of God’s true love can feel while the greatest love for which the heart was created is not felt? It simply exists. We sing of it. We speak of it. But we do not feel it.

At the risk offending thousands of people, I will say again what the Spirit of God bellows in my soul: the bride of Christ suffers from lack of love for her Groom. She admires Him. She is grateful to Him. She’s been saved by Him. She is intellectually stimulated by Him. She loves her new clothes. She is enamored by the jewels. But she expected to feel love. Is it OK that she doesn’t? Is that normal?

The bride is suffering from post-deliverance depression. She expected to feel something. Is it OK that she doesn’t?

Bride of Christ, we must neither tolerate a lack of love in our souls nor let anyone convince us that it is normal not to feel love for God. The bride was created to love the Groom. Not only is a lack of love for God our heart’s most needless tragedy, loving God is our only recourse for divinely loving others.

500 Miles

“But I would walk 500 miles and I would walk 500 more. Just to be the man who walked a thousand miles to fall down at your door.” That was the song on the latest episode of Grey’s Anatomy, where Kepner, the re-virginized surgeon, was proposed to by her paramedic boyfriend in this whole song and dance scene. I was mesmerized the entire time. What is with girls and cheesy marriage proposals? Most of us melt at them. I guess it’s because it shows that your man is willing to make a fool of himself for you…and, boy, how do we love the fools!

As much as many of us try to negate it, God made the woman’s heart attracted to things more emotional. We do a lot because of our feelings. Sometimes that is bad, but if we allow God to drive our emotions, it can be so amazing!!

God is very emotional. Throughout the Bible, He speaks of His love for us. It’s the ultimate love story. He finds her (us), she falls for Him, but for one reason or another, cannot fully accept the love He has for her, so she runs. And as the true Romantic that He is, He pursues her…Therefore I am now going to allure her; I will lead her into the desert and speak tenderly to her. There I will give her back her vineyards, and will make the Valley of Achor a door of hope. There she will sing as in the days of her youth, as in the day she came up out of Egypt. “In that day,” declares the LORD, “you will call me ‘my husband’; you will no longer call me ‘my master’ (Hosea 2:14-16). Doesn’t that sound incredibly amazing??

I know Grey’s Anatomy has some great writers because I keep watching week after week, but the Writer of my love story is a whole lot better! And I can’t wait to see what He has in store for me in the seasons to come, but in the meantime, I will bask in the One who would (and has) walked 500 miles and 500 more for me!!
