She could remember just how much joy she’d experienced, the day she’d said yes to Him. At the time, it had automatically seemed to change everything drastically. Most of which she’d not even expected would change. Her face was always radiating and there was a great light in her eyes. She couldn’t explain the great feeling but deep inside she knew that the longing she’d had for a very long time had been filled finally. She needed nothing more. For her, she’d found the love of her life.
Her very good life, bright smiles, sparkling eyes, went on year after year. Nothing seemed to go wrong for her and if anything did, she knew just whom to talk to. Him. Anyone would be surprised to know that one’s love had answers to everything. Yes! Her love, was her answer and to problems, He was a solution. She didn’t want to back out…. This was the life!
………… Her ring was missing, 😦 Her life was in shambles. Her decisions were failing and everything was falling apart. He was still there but it is not like she needed Him anymore. She knew there was something she needed to do but she preferred to do things her way in the meantime. She even gave herself a timeline to be away from Him. She’d allow wrong decisions, bad company, in place of Him. He never had room in her heart and He never got to receive any consultations from her over anything.
While she did all this, she could feel He still loved her greatly. He didn’t judge her at any point. She’d fallen into a life of filth, but He still remained. He didn’t say a word to her, all He longed for, was her coming back to Him. She had said “I do” once and He hoped she’d say it one more time. He could feel her wounded heart, He could see just how much she was trying to choose between her life and Him.
One day, she decided to just allow herself time from everyone. While life away from Him was temporarily worth it, it didn’t fulfill her longing. It had not been as tranquil, peaceful and full of joy as when with Him. It broke her heart to pieces to see and even feel the genuine love from Him. See it through His eyes yet she was so distanced from Him. Her heart was in pieces.
Revelation 2:4-5 Yet I hold this against you, you have forsaken your first love. Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repent and do things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lamp stand from its place.
She now understood why her life had not been the same. All the things she’d done when with Him, all the joy she’d felt when with Him and that great experience she had with Him was no longer there. His place had been taken by so much and her life was more filled with filth.
She was however encouraged in knowing that, His love remained and she needed to come back because her rightful place was with Him! She boldly went back to Him in all her shame for abandoning Him, in all her filth and said to Him, “My love, once more……… I DO!”
Good morning guys! It has been a really great experience sharing this with you. I feel like it is something I just started that will probably need to be continued. I will do so in my next post which is this coming Saturday.
In the meantime, keep looking up because this day is lovely as you are. Share your thought with me in the comments box below. Have a lovely day and thanks for passing by. From my heart to yours. 🙂
