First Love

Everyone longs to give himself or herself completely to someone — to have a deep soul relationship with another — to be loved thoroughly, and exclusively. But God, to a Christian, says “No, not until you are satisfied, fulfilled and content with being loved by Me alone – with giving yourself totally and unreservedly to Me – to having an intensely personal and unique relationship with Me alone, discovering that only in me is your human relationship that I have planned for you. You will never be united with another until you are united with Me – exclusive of anyone or anything else, exclusive of any other desires or longings. I want you to stop planning, stop wishing, and allow Me to bring it to you. You just keep watching Me, expecting the greatest things – keep experiencing the satisfaction that I AM. Keep listening and learning the things I tell you. You just wait. Thats all.

Don’t be anxious. Don’t worry. Don’t look around at the the things others have gotten or that I have given them. Don’t look at the things you think you want. You just keep looking off and away at Me, or you’ll miss what I have to show you.

And then, when you’re ready, I’ll surprise you with a love far more wonderful than any you would dream of. You see, until you are ready and until the one I have for you is ready (I am working even this moment to have both of you ready at the same time) — until you are both satisfied exclusively with Me and the life I prepared for you, you won’t be able to experience the love that exemplifies your relationship with Me, and is thus the perfect love.

And dear one, I want you to have this most wonderful love. I want you to see in the flesh a picture of your relationship with Me, and to enjoy materially and concretely the everlasting union of beauty, perfection and love that I offer you with Myself. Know that I love you utterly. Believe it and be satisfied.

    • This is so good and such a needed reminder as we face rejection and all of these chaotic emotions walking out our situations. It is good to look toward the promise of our future but to find all our fulfillment in God alone. It’s the only way to be whole and truly healthy and that is my greatest desire. But I needed this reminder so thank you for these words of wisdom.

  2. I absolutely love this!!!! Thank you for this blog. BL

    • Very powerful words and so important at a time when we feel broken.
      Thank you

  3. I have not rushed anything. I have been seeing someone. We have been going out for a few months, just getting to know each other. This happened out of the blue but it has been nice to have someone my age to talk to about things and life in general. I have no idea where this is going and I have no plans to rush anything. If it’s meant to be then it will be.

  4. I was in a place of rushing; looking at how long I’ve been divorced and my was-band has remarried and it kinda makes me feel like a loser. I often feel like I’m in a secret competition with him. I don’t want to seem unhappy or that I am at a complete loss since we’ve been divorced but that’s often what it feels like. Just this week though, I’ve found myself quiet; being able to say to God, “God, I don’t like where I am, I am sad about my divorce, I am sad that I am not with my partner anymore, I don’t know what you have planned for me, I don’t want to be single or without a companion for the rest of my life but if that is what you want for me, please give me your grace to endure, emotionally, physically, sexually, spiritually” I overheard Nicole C Mullen’s testimony last night while I was up all night and I think I found some similarity in my own experience. I prayed and fasted for my marriage to be rebuilt, I had heard so many encouraging words and prophecies and so when the divorce happened and when the glimmer of hope was shattered to pieces as I learned that my was-band had remarried, I think I stopped trusting in the things about God that I once did. As Nicole said, I had trusted God or thought I trusted God with my marriage and look how that turned out, so the love-life/intimacy part of my life, I was not going to trust him with anymore, I was going to make my own decisions about that, so I feel justified in sleeping with my was-band. I’m learning to do better, God is my helper!
