Love Of My Life

I keep thinking about where it comes from – the desire to be alone. Not as an introvert. I mean, alone in life. I don’t want to spend the rest of my life with someone else. Studies show that millennials would rather be alone than marry off. I didn’t want to consider myself a millennial. I’m a xenial but people don’t really care about that.

Of course, for all the ladies out there, there’s a lot of contributing factors to wanting to be alone, but we can sum it up in one sentence: Men are idiots! Not all, but boy, oh boy, there are a lot of them out there. Ugh! And all the ladies say amen. Put your hands in the air and wave it like you just don’t care.

As I dug deeper though, I’ve come to a conclusion that the root cause is pride, no matter what people really say. Whether they’ve been hurt, betrayed, forgotten, or anything else. Pride comes in different forms. For my part, to be honest, I take pride in being alone because it’s easier. At least, that’s how I find it. It has its own struggles, as every single person would say, but I’ve never really been married before so maybe we should just listen to those who have been in both situations. And of course, as already recorded in history, they all say the same thing. It’s easier to be single.

And then I keep making sense of a human being’s need to be with someone. We all want to be with the love of our lives. Old people say there’s no point living life without it. What with all these movies – romantic comedies, true to life love stories. We all want to be with the love of our lives. People go through all sorts of things just to find it.

So I agree with the world. We need to find the love of our lives, no matter what.

If you just look at it, it would seem Satan has succeeded in making the whole world believe the need to find that elusive one human being.

Do you see how he deceives the world? That twisting of the truth that he does? Because it is true that we need to find the love of our lives but it’s not about a human being. We, Christians, know that marriage here on earth is just suppose to model the real & true marriage – Christ’s love for his bride – the church.

I realise that there is nothing wrong with wanting to be alone but if I may ask a favor, don’t desire that for all the wrong reasons. I think that’s what I did. I hope you can agree with me that we are not designed to be alone. I’m not talking about sex here. We were not created as sexual beings so we can have sex all the time. That’s not what “sexual beings” mean.

We are not designed to be alone because our over all make up really is to be with the Love of our lives.

You want, desire, need to be with someone because you are created that way. But realise that it’s not really to be with just a human being. You are created to be with a Spiritual Being who decided to become human for a while to redeem us from all of Satan’s deceptions & hell, and to spend all eternity with you.

You and I are destined to be with the Love of our lives. You and I are destined to be with Him. His name is Jesus.

This is me saying that I found the One my heart loves. I am saying that I found the Love of my life. And I am hoping you find Him too.

Tale As Old As Time…

“… true as it can be. Barely even friends then somebody bends unexpectedly..”

I have no idea how my love story is being written. All I know is that it is being written by the most excellent, most incredible Storyteller of all time. And for that I have more than enough reason to be sure it will be as brilliant as He only knows it can be. And truth be told, I love it best when He does all these things. Surprises & all. 

February, as we know, is considered love month. I’ve never been lured into celebrating this month ever since I can remember. But I thought of putting up an entry in the hopes of declaring True Love.

Tune As Old As Song…

You ever notice how every love story begins? Isn’t it curious that it all starts out the same? It comes in many different ways and forms but it has always been boy meets girl. They both start out hopeful, gets desperate, and then, did you notice how it usually ends? It always ends either one of two ways. They either decide to give up and fall apart, or live to continue what was started come what may.

Can you identify which part of the story you’re in?

Sometimes it can get really frustrating. You try so hard, you give it everything you’ve got, only to get nothing in return, only to be rejected. Or you both do everything you can to salvage a relationship but nothing just ever seems to work out. 

You start to question everything. You try to make sense of all the pain, frustration, sorrow until it seems the only logical thing to do is to give up, let go, accept that nothing will change. Accept that the end has finally come. Accept that there’s nothing more either of you could do about how bad things have become. 

Bittersweet And Strange…

And then the morning comes reminding us that everything is made anew each sunrise. Suddenly, you realise that the person you loathe now isn’t really anyone else but yourself.

It would seem that the person who made all the mistake isn’t him or her but you. It’s not that you can’t forgive the other person. It’s easy to forgive others of their mistakes.

You realise the truth is that you are having a hard time forgiving them for having seen every tiny bits and pieces of the mistakes you committed. 

Beauty And The Beast

You begin to see that the other Person has always been patient, willing to wait, ready to accept everything about you and help you in and with anything. 

You wonder how can Someone be so understanding of your feelings, mood swings, foul temper, impatience. Why did He ever choose to be with you? What has He seen in you that’s even worth laying eyes on? How bizarre, unbelievably incredible, mind-blowing can it really be that Someone would want to spend eternity with someone like you? 

The idea of a love story between a man and a woman is something I will always be delighted to hear. But the love story between the Maker and his creation, now that is something I always marvel at. Someone offering his very life to prove how much He loves me. The Father giving His only Son that I could be with Him from here and for all time? This writing will never give justice to its incredibly beautifully written story.

I realise time and time again that He is the Beauty. And I… I am the beast
