From the inspirational book “Are You Ready To Receive the Love You Desire”
Song of Solomon 8:7 Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot wash it away.
Every woman dreams of falling in love with Mr. Right and living each day in full passion with him, sharing our most tender and intimate thoughts with that special someone. It seems as though nothing can compare to the feeling of being in love and living in passion with the one we love. There is just an emotional natural high that goes along with being in love, you can’t seem to quite put it into words; it’s almost a mystery.
So many of us will spend literally hundreds of dollars buying and reading romance novels, just so they can get a quick sensation of love and pretend to be in that same dream world. Then you have those who will turn their daily soap opera to get an hour’s worth of this feeling or rent a movie to feel this passion.
Then we get upset with our partner when they can’t provide us with the same type of passion that Victor Newman was providing Nikki on the Young and the Restless. So all the frustration of living in their fantasy world leads to something worse. Oh yes, you know what happens next. Many will begin to have extramarital affairs to get the love they say they aren’t getting at home. When it’s not that they aren’t getting love at home, they just don’t appreciate what they have been blessed with. Therefore any excuse justifying what they are doing will suffice. “He doesn’t look as good as he did when we first got married, or started dating” Do you? “He doesn’t pay me as much attention as he used to” When was the last time you appreciated him? and “They are not satisfying my needs” Do you even know what you need? Finally you have those who will only dream of this feeling and never actually be able to feel the realness of this gratifying feeling.
Where is love and romance? Is it in the music that we listen to on our radios? I don’t think so. Our problem is we get too eager to fall in love and to feel that touch, that what we may settle for is lust and not really true unconditional love; with passion and intimacy. Is it that we are looking in all the wrong places, and why are so many looking for love in all the wrong places? Why are you looking anyway? Stop looking and be found.
The place that each and every one of us can find true love is simply by opening up the word of God and falling in love with Jesus. We then learn who Our Lord is, then we draw even nearer and get to know him better, and then we grow into a personal relationship with Jesus. We make personal time alone with just him. Just you and Jesus. He is the true One that can set our hearts a flame with the love and passion that we so desire. He has given each of us this feeling of desire; many just focus this desire toward individuals of the world and not for the true meaning of this feeling that He has equipped us all with.
Until we can come to the place of putting Jesus first in this area, we will never be completely satisfied with any relationship that we have. True contentment of these feelings comes when we are on fire for the One who gave His life for us, that is Jesus Christ. Do you want to fall in love? Do you want to feel His touch? Do you want to feel Him running through your heart and soul? If your answer is yes, then fall in love with Jesus. Have a love affair with Jesus first and you will experience the greatest love you can ever imagine when that special someone comes into your life; all because you chose to put Jesus first.
