August 27, 2017 marks an important day for me. One that I did not expect at all. Just two days from the 29th, almost 8 years ago — I truly experienced a personal encounter with God, my born again experience. Well, fast forward 8 years… God is still working on me and doing some incredible things on my heart.
Not too long ago, I ended a relationship I’ve been in for quite some time. Our relationship had its ups and downs and we both mutually decided it was time to end the relationship. Since the time of the break up, God began a healing work in my heart. I wouldn’t be where I am mentally and physically if it weren’t for my little community group who prayed for me. For my church who spiritually fed me. And for every single person who listened to my story and prayed for me.
Yesterday — in the middle of a beautiful sermon from Philippians 4, at Door of Hope in Portland, OR — the Holy Spirit did something so beautiful in me. I literally burst out crying right in the middle of the sermon and I could not stop crying.
It was a beautiful cry.
A cry that spoke of chains being broken, a divided heart returning to her Beloved, a heart that needed to know she already had a Lover. One that knew her heart better than any man could. In fact, this Lover was her husband and He was quite surprisingly jealous for her.
A lover that wants no rival.
He embraced her and began to fill her heart with peace. A peace that surpasses all understanding. A peace that no one can truly describe or put into the right words.
This message is a message to all the beautiful and single humans. I want to remind you… you do have someone that loves you — flaws and all. He has been there all along. And He loves you with a love that will never compare to what a human can give you. You are more than enough for Him. He will never lie to you, He will never put your body down or expect you to look a certain way for Him to love you. He will never expect you to wear a certain outfit that will make Him attracted to you. He will not lead you to sin. He will not make you doubt His love for you. He will protect you, adore you and fill all the void in your heart that you have been trying to fill up with people, experiences and materialistic things. He loves you just the way you are and He doesn’t expect you to change a thing.
And yes — the weird little quirks, too.
That’s the love you have been missing out on while trying to search for a human who you thought could give you all that.
He is waiting for you. Come back to Him. He has been here all along. Waiting for you. Ready to dance with you and take you on a love journey that you will never forget.
Will you go?
