Consuming love. The kind of love that is overpowering. Sometimes you can’t even breathe, but yet you want more. You don’t want it to end. “Don’t go! Just one more moment!” We plea! “Just stay with me a few more minutes, Please?”
We know that this consuming feeling is fleeing because of our humanness, so we try to hold on to every moment. The sun shines brighter, the birds sing more beautifully, colors are more vibrant and the breeze is just…relaxing! “Can I just be in Your arms for one more moment? I never want You to let me go!”
I’ve prayed for this love. To feel like this. Jealous of others who had it. So, jealous I felt “less than” because I didn’t have it. But You have been there, waiting…calling, hoping for me to notice You. To fall madly, deeply, wholly! To not only, enjoy the gifts, but to enjoy the Giver!
My veil has been lifted! I see my Groom and I am eager to be His…fully, completely! I know I don’t deserve any of this, but yet I stand on my tiptoes, yelling, craving “Is there more than this?” And my Groom, my Savior, my Lord says “Oh, yes, my love! There is more!”
