Fellow blogger Heather Lindsey put it well when she said, “Don’t waste your entire life chasing down people that don’t see your value and worth.” I was doing just that and have been guilty of doing that several times in my life; be it work relationships or romantic relationships. Hopefully the cycle ends now. Let’s make the decision today to stop chasing after the wrong people and their love and approval when we can accept God’s love that He offers to us so freely.
“And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:17-19
Commentary: When you feel shutout or isolated, remember that you can never be lost to God’s love.
As far as romantic love goes I’m sure we’ll know it when it comes along.
“Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame. Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot wash it away. If one were to give all the wealth of his house for love, it would be utterly scorned.” Song of Songs 7: 6-7
Sounds nice! Haven’t found that yet but all in God’s time.
“…I charge you by the gazelles and by the does of the field: do not arouse or awaken love until it so desires.” Song of Songs 2:7
Hi! I'm Marilyn!
