There’s this God-sized void in my heart that yearns for love.
Time and time again, I jump the gun and fill the void temporarily with human “love.”
I am a loving being
Made to love
Made with love
More so, I CRAVE companionship.
However, whenever I do it my way as opposed to God’s way, I make a mistake.
I love, love.
But the false misrepresentations of love all around taint the purity of love and scare me.
My desire for love hasn’t been chased away yet though because love has been carved and crafted into my innermost being.
I just want to do it right.
But I’ve been doing it wrong for so long that it’s hard.
(There I go again playing the victim)
It’s hard to let go and let God even though I know that’s the ultimate best.
I guess it’s only a matter of time..
Nah, I can’t give time control.
I have power.
God has given me the power as well as freedom of choice.
It’s up to me to choose Him.
God is love. How phenomenal. Substitute the word love for God throughout this piece.
The message here is to accept that we all have this God-shaped void and we must not confuse it with anything else. Accept that God belongs there. You’re hungry, so fill it up, you don’t want to starve to death, do you? Don’t fill yourself up with temporary people & things, but with more of God. Love waits, and God is love, so God’s waiting on you and I.
“We’re sinful beyond belief yet loved beyond measure.” “God knew what He was getting into when He saved you”, He knows your sin. It’s ok.
But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love. – 1 John 4:8
And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. – Romans 5:5
May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. – Ephesians 3:19
He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them. – 1 Corinthians 5:15
