What if the girl for you was 4 1/2 years older than you? Is that weird? Should that be weird? How would you feel?
The “one” for my will be the one I choose and who chooses me. It won’t matter if she is 5 years older than me, or 5 years younger than me. It won’t matter if she is a red head, a blonde, a brunette, or bald. It won’t matter if she is tall or short. It won’t matter if she is big or small, happy or sad, humorous or serious. It won’t matter because in the end, when I have gotten to know her, and seen her heart for God, that is all that will matter.
So many people look for a hand to hold, but sometimes I won’t be there to hold that hand. Some want a body to snuggle with, but some nights I won’t be there to snuggle with. The only thing I truly want is someone who wants Jesus so badly, that her life radiates Him, that her spirit walks with the Holy Spirit, and her prayers echo into the Kingdom like music drifting into a grand dancing hall; because that is one thing that I can give, I can give Jesus, He is the only thing that is truly worth seeking and giving.
Let’s stop pining over the “one” and start living in the glorious reality that Jesus is alive! That He calls us most loved, and that we are not meant to live this life in the shadow of an earthly love, but in the light of an eternal love!
It upsets me when I see “Christians” talk more about their desire for marriage, than their desire for Jesus. Since when did Jesus and His Kingdom stop being something that we talk about? Since when did our longing for love become an idol? Where along the line did we lose sight of our first love?
I think it’s time we stop looking at someone who is “spiritually attractive”, and start looking at Jesus who is the very reasons our lives have any worth at all.
If the stars dance across the skies for the glory of God, and the seas roar and crash so that Christ’s name can be glorified, why then do we not also leap, dance, yell and sing, of all that Christ has done for us?
Creation must think us mad when they see that we (who were created in the image of the Creator) long only for each other, when all of creation has been groaning for a taste of their King to return. Let us never forget that Christ is the most desired being in all of existence, and He desires you and I.
