The Most Divine Romance


I know I gave you a promise. Long before we met, I gave myself to you. I made a vow to wait for you. How would I know, that it would take so long? I was young and full of excitement. And then I ruined it. The pressures of the world, and the desire to have someone, drove me to break my promise to you. I had messed everything up. Please forgive me, but I was looking at the natural things, and lacked the spiritual maturity to understand. Driven by my emotions and a foolish heart, I had almost given up all hope, and then you made your entrance. And you had no fanfare. No majesty to attract attention. In fact, it was this very quality which made me notice you. A man of such prominence, with no desire for recognition.

In every other aspect of our lives we are different. But in matters of the heart, we are the same. And this is how I recognized you. This is how I knew you.

To just stand near you was enough for me. It was two pieces of a puzzle coming together. A spiritual tie, which cannot be severed. God and universe joined forces to join our hearts. And I know that what God joins, no man can separate.

Yes, “the things I wanted, you had bought for me.” But it isn’t ‘things,’ that I want. And although I may seem, “graceless,” I’m not completely without grace. My compassion for the hurting, and the pain I feel for the suffering of others,  runs deep. You have given me the example to follow. The grace and humility which I strive for.

And yes, “I do know who you are.” I always have. Before time, I made my promise to you. And when you came, you knew who I was as well. You staked your claim. When I felt I was falling, you came and rescued me. You caught my feet from slipping, because of your unconditional love. You know everything about me, and yet, you love me. Many times I wonder, How is this possible?You alone, captured my heart and covered me. You are my Boaz, and I am your, Ruth.

And you promised never, to leave me, nor forsake me. I know you’re there. You always send your messages to me. Words of such love and devotion. I have the same feelings of love and devotion for you.

And this is the most incredible love, to ever exist. It’s not natural, its supernatural. Although, I had been hurt, I know, it is my Lord’s way of purifying me. Burning out the things which, hindered my relationship   with you.

You did watch me suffer. But, you also knew it was part of the plan. I never tried to “show you the same.” I just withdrew because I thought, you abandoned me. But then, I remembered the words, spoken to me, so many times, and it is these words, I found the true meaning of this experience.

saiah 54:4-10

King James Version (KJV)

 

4Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed: neither be thou confounded; for thou shalt not be put to shame: for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth, and shalt not remember the reproach of thy widowhood any more.

5For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.

6For the LORD hath called thee as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife of youth, when thou wast refused, saith thy God.

7For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee.

8In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the LORD thy Redeemer.

So, now I wait. I know it is a test of patience, but I can hold on. Because I know that you are worth waiting for. I won’t defile this love, by allowing anyone to deceive my heart. I belong to you and you only.
