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.
