A Poem From an Unknown Writer
I was single for 8 YEARS (!!!!) after my last child, Maya was born. I'll be honest, it was because I was terrified of getting hurt and/or pregnant. In that time, I began to develop a closer friendship with God and poems like this one gave me hope for the future ...
Everyone longs to give themselves completely to someone,
to have a deep relationship with another,
to be loved thoroughly and exclusively.
But to His child, the Lord says:
No, not until you are satisfied, fulfilled, and content
with being loved by Me;
with giving yourself totally and unreservedly to Me
to have an intensely personal relationship
with Me alone,
discovering that only in Me
is your satisfaction to be found.
Only then will you be capable of the most perfect relationship that I have planned for you.
I want you to stop planning, stop wishing, and allow Me
to give you the most thrilling plan existing…
one that you cannot imagine (Proverbs 3:5-6).
I want you to have the best.
Please allow Me to bring it to you.
You just keep watching Me.
Keep experiencing the satisfaction that I am.
Keep listening and learning the things that I tell you.
Just waiting—that's all.
Don't be anxious. Don't worry.
Don't look around at all the things others have gotten or that I have given them.
Don't look at all the things you think you want.
Just keep looking up to Me.
And then, when I know you are ready,
Ill surprise you
with a love far wonderful than any you would dream of.
I'm working at this moment to have you both ready at the same time.
Until you are satisfied exclusively with Me,
and the life I've given you,
you wont be able to experience
that exemplifies your relationship with Me.
I want you to have this most wonderful love,
I want you to see in the flesh a picture of your relationship with Me,
and to enjoy materially and concretely
the everlasting union of beauty, perfection, and love
that I offer you with myself.
Know that I love you utterly. Be satisfied in Me.
