Because maybe that "The One" may not be the "one" you've been wasting your time looking for in the coffee shops or in book stores thinking his interests could match yours. Maybe your "The One" is not JUST ANYONE because He Is The One. Maybe that's why the person is called The One because He Is distinct, He is different, He is entirely set apart - not of this world.
Because when you think about it, the negatives can mean positive too. "God if what you call 'blessed' is not the blessed I see, carve your kingdom in my heart and let me see the 'blessed' you mean. Your blessed - I want to see."
In a year, God showed me how much of a human I was and how much of a great God He is - and always will be. God - is God and that's how it is.
Complacency kills you, because it hinders you from learning more. It hinders you from discovering God's complexity, Testified by the cosmos and the galaxies. It cuts you off from the opportunity of truly going deeper into His love and grace.
I will come to confess that in a worldly perspective, I have always understood the meaning of "first love" as the one you've felt those cringey sparks with first. As You welcomed me with open arms and made me realize things I never realized before, You told me that "first love" doesn't mean "first fall" - it means "FIRST" before others.
In this world of great peril, nothing is permanent. In contrast to earth, there awaits for those who have truly been saved, a world without conflict and tears. A world without competition, where everyone is equal except for One. Where happiness abounds and Love reigns all the more. Where not a day goes by without worship, for everything they will be doing is to worship. That - and that alone. And so He says, endure.
I’m no longer saying Yes to a Maybe because they’re expensive, and I can no longer afford it. To save you from your future heartbreak, “maybe” you should too. I am aware that by saying this, I might be hindering you from learning lessons on your own, but If I can help you in avoiding the land mines I had stepped on, then this maybe is worth it.
