Like no lie, by far this is the best relationship I have ever been in. I never realized just how good He was. Like everything that I have always wanted and then some is right here in Him.
I never thought I would be saying this about God. I mean, I have a relationship with Him but I have always looked at in such a narrow or small view. Yes He is my God, yes He saved me from sins, yes he wakes me daily, yes He watches over me and my family, but this level that we just came to is something different. As a young woman I know we all want to have that perfect relationship, we want to be loved, cared for, protected and all dat lol. We listen to relationship songs, love songs and sometimes think about that perfect one, where ever he is. But did you know that all that we are looking for is found in Jesus? Like seriously!
It just dawned on me the other day that I have been putting Jesus’ love for me in a box with limits. His loves fills the voids of a mother, father, friend, auntie, cousin, dog etc., but also a man/husband. I was reading this book the other day and it named off the characteristics of the perfect husband: a great provider, takes care of the kids, great listener, affectionate, faithful etc. And then it asked “Would you trust this man as your husband?” But the more accurate question to ask is who wouldn’t trust this man as their husband? And its like my heart just opened even more and I realized ” Wow God, all those things I yearn for in a relationship with a man, I already have with you. Here is 6 reasons why He is the one
1. He’s Pays my Bills!
When I think over my entire 25 years of life, there has never been a day where I did not have what I needed. He has never let me down. I can even remember being in a shelter as a child with my mom but yet we had what we needed to survive another day. When I didn’t have a job for 8 months after graduating God still made sure I had help (even when I felt too prideful to ask for help). Wow God, you really are a great provider.
“Don’t be obsessed with getting more material things. Be relaxed with what you have. Since God assured us, “I’ll never let you down, never walk off and leave you,” we can boldly quote,God is there, ready to help;I’m fearless no matter what. Who or what can get to me? “Hebrews 13:5-6
2. He is the Best Listener
OK ladies, lets get real, we got issues! lol And we are always looking for someone to hear them. But have you ever had a time where nobody answered the phone? When you are pouring your heart out to someone and then magically the convo turns into a discussion about them? When you are alone and you feel like no one else can possible understand what you are going through? He does! 24/7 His ears are open to me just waiting to hear how my day is going, how I really feel, am I angry, happy or sad? He has never turned me away or judged me and made me feel less of a human for what I was going through. Ahhh, I just love Him for that.
“We don’t have a priest who is out of touch with our reality. He’s been through weakness and testing, experienced it all—all but the sin. So let’s walk right up to him and get what he is so ready to give. Take the mercy, accept the help.” Hebrews 4:14-16
3. He is soooooo Affectionate
Even though we don’t physically touch, He is always wanting to be near me. When I wake up He is there saying “Speak to me this morning my love”. All throughout the day I feel this tug on my heart to draw closer to him all because he wants to draw closer to me. He wants to comfort me, speak sweet and peaceful things to me and tell me ho
