The Moment I Realized I love You

The moment I realized that there is a God out there who is so astoundingly glorious, it makes my heart quicken–
The moment I realized there’s a God out there who made me, who loves me, who wants me–
The moment I realized there’s a God out there who is personal and intimate, yet powerful and mighty–
The moment I realized there’s a God out there who is the o n l y one who can forgive me, heal me, make me whole–
The moment I realized there’s a God out there who is so much more humble than I could ever dream of being, yet full of splendour and glorious majesty–
The moment I realized there’s a God of perfect love – so perfect that he would endure torture and death just to forgive me and make me His forever–
The moment I realized there’s a God who is so sacrificial in His love that it makes my heart turn into fire–
The moment I realized how beautiful you are, in all that you are–
The moment I realized there’s a God out there who isn’t o u t there, but  r i g h t  here–
The moment I realized there’s a wonderful God who is not a distant God but one of feeling, closeness, intimacy, compassion, strength, and passion–
The moment you allowed me to see with my eyes, hear with my ears, and understand with my heart that YOU are God and oh, you are glorious and breathtaking and everything I could ever need or want or desire–
I fell  m a d l y,  recklessly in love with You.

Have You Ever Tried Chocolate?

Once you become deeply acquainted and intimate with God — once you begin a relationship with Him and saturate yourself in His Word — once you seek Him and actually find Him — you will fall powerfully in love with Him. He is impossible not to love, once you taste His own love for you. He is so loveable in every way, even in His passionate jealous anger. He’s irresistible to the soul that was made for His pleasure.

But you won’t know this until He supernaturally fills you with his Holy Spirit, which for to happen, you must open up your heart to Him. You must turn to Him, and ask him to forgive you and be your life. Your God. Your Saviour.

When it truly happens, you’re in for more than you can ever fathom. He fills you with His passionate love and you’re consumed by Him.

Thus begins the greatest romance a human being could ever experience. 

If you grew up never tasting rich, good quality, velvety chocolate, you would never have an appetite or craving for it. Never tasting it, you don’t realize what you’re missing. The same is for God Himself. He’s the most rich, decadent, luxurious, satisfying thing that anybody could ever experience. But you won’t know realize what you’re missing until you first taste His incredible love.

But once you do, game over. You’re His. You’re done with everything else and you are His.


{Psalm 63:1-8}
O GOD, You are my God;
With deepest longings I will seek You;
My soul thirsts for You,
My flesh longs and sighs for You,
In a dry and weary land where there is no water.
So I have gazed upon You in the sanctuary,
To see Your power and Your glory.
Because Your lovingkindness is better than life,
My lips shall praise You.
So I will bless You as long as I live;
I will lift up my hands in Your name.
My soul is satisfied as with marrow and fatness,
And my mouth offers praises to You with joyful lips.
When I remember You on my bed, I meditate and thoughtfully focus on You in the night watches,
For You have been my help,
And in the shadow of Your wings I sing for joy.
My soul clings to You;
Your right hand upholds me.

 

Fire in my Heart

God,
My love is so desperate for You!
You are so magnificent,
So unfailing,
So tender and kind and strong and sweet,
I turn into warm liquid fire when I think of You.
I’m mesmerized by Your qualities, Your character, Your fullness in all that You are.
My heart is set on You.
I can’t stop thinking of You!
I can’t even describe into words the magnitude of my love for You.
For Your sweet perfection,
Your Divine Romance,
Your soft and radiant presence.
My soul longs, faints, pants for the day when I get You forever.
When I’ll be filled with Your presence forever.
I love You so much.
Take my love,
Let it be a sweet aroma to You.
Let the love and praise that slip off my lips and flow out of my heart be a sweet, fine incense to You.
