How many people out there actually know that our relationship with God involves an intimate loving relationship, the kind of relationship that is between a husband and a wife, a man and a woman?
A divine romance is happening right here on earth today, between the Creator and His beloved creation.
The greatest love story ever told -- God loves us even more than He loves His only Son. He loves us to the extend of giving up His only Son for us sinners (John 3:16). Through the prophet Hosea, the Lord revealed His love for us His people in this poem of love.
I have friends who are single and desperate. They said they marvel at how I am able to enjoy my single life, and better still, I am considering religious life. Some even told me that I'm foolish for not giving a chance to guys. Well, tell me then, my friends. How can I love another when my heart has been so totally taken by God? I want to let the whole world know that I belong solely to Jesus, the Prince of my heart and soul. And nothing can and will come between this love of ours.
Here's a piece of good news I would like to share with all those who are single and desperately looking. Stop looking for those who cannot give you total satisfaction. Give the Perfect Lover a chance, try Him. He would never let you down. When you accept Him to be your Lover, you will find yourself bursting with joy everyday. That is what I'm experiencing right now. I found myself giggling when my thoughts are filled with Him. I wanted to scream when I hear His Words of love for me. I know that I am alive because of His love; I am made for Him. I feel that I'm the happiest person in this whole wide world! Even though things don't come easy at times, my heart knows that He will never ever leave me. He has become my everything.
Remember the vow the bride and bridegroom will have to make during wedding? God has actually taken the initiative to take the vow for everyone, now it's our turn to live our lives as His spouse. Add this to your personal prayer and really mean what you say, and see how your lives will be transformed:
"I promise to be true to You in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer. I will love You and honour You all the days of my life."
For all of you who have made up your mind to make a commitment in this divine romance, all the very best to you. ;)
