He was the star crossed love of my life. I recall a time I put down a note on my phone detailing the man I knew God wanted me to be with. The list started with:
-Someone whose love pierced through me the way Gods love did.
I used to watch wedding videos. Each time I would, I sensed an overwhelming whisper from God letting me know that someone was coming.
On the first few instances we met. He overwhelmed me. Before him, every other man I met made me feel like I was perfect. He on the other hand was different. His love pierced through every dark corner of my heart that it shined the light in areas I could improve on.
I would say that he was my purpose partner. Always pushed me towards Gods plan for my life.
Although the first 8 months felt like a rollercoaster of I can’t stop falling in love. The years after felt like I love standing in love with you.
His peaks. His pits. My peaks. My pits. It was a never ending love story.
After being in love for almost four years. My being has been forever changed. Sacrifice, love and deep care is what 4 years taught me.
Those years taught me that love isn’t selfish.
Those years taught me that love is honest despite how painful truth can be.
Those years taught me that men need respect and women need love.
But above all this is those four years taught me that God puts two people together. He puts two people together to work towards Gods purpose.
If you ever thought that love was about you. You have it all wrong. It’s about God. Only Him. You two are just vessels. I leave you with this quote from a return to love:
“Relationships are assignments. They are part of Gods vast plan for our enlightenment, the Holy Spirits blueprint by which each individual soul is led to greater awareness and expanded love. Relationships are the Holy Spirits laboratory in which He brings together two people who have the maximal opportunity for mutual growth. He appraises who can learn from at any given moment and then assigns them to each other”
If there’s one thing I can leave you from this blog post. It’s that relationships are for growth and purpose.
