Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers-
Today is a fabulous day! Today is a great day because I said it would be..the power of words in action. lol. ( Those of you who read yesterday’s post understand that statement). Well, I wanted to share some amazing information with you today: the reason why I started blogging a year ago and how I have seen my life change from experiencing the love I write about on a nearly daily basis.
Today we are going to discuss life changing love. In July 2013, I was still trying to find myself. I didn’t really know who I was or who I wanted to be, so I thought that I would start blogging as a way to express myself. I needed to vent and unload my “dirty laundry” so to speak but I did not know how to actually stand in front of people and say what I needed to say- so I chose to write instead. I was always the person that kept a journal. In fact, I still journal – I just completed an entry before turning to this blog. My sister calls my journal an adult’s diary, but writing is the only way I can release what’s in my heart without the backlash of other’s opinions. It’s in my journal where I feel safe enough to tell the truth about myself and how I feel. This blog in July of last year, became my public journal- where I vowed to tell the truth and share my life with others. I was seeking love last year around this time and now I found a love that changed my life. I found a life-changing love, better yet- this love found me!
Where is this love? You may be asking…better yet, how do I get this love?
I thought I had to go through so many hoops to get this love. In fact, I thought I had to work for this love . I thought I had to be so many things for different people to get this love . I thought I had to endure heart ache after heartache to even come close to this love.
The truth is, the love I sought for all of these year was right in front of me. This love was staring me in the face, waiting for me to embrace it. This life-changing love was waiting on me and now that I have it nothing can make me let it go. This life-changing love is the love of Jesus Christ. Ahhh..that was simple! He was standing there, waiting to love me for so long – but I sought love in other things. It wasn’t until I embraced His love for me that my life began to change. I began to see myself the way He saw me; beautiful, whole, free. His love changed me! His love filled me up and it has never let me go. I am one blessed girl…I am loved by the Creator of the universe- He madly loves me! Now, that is something to brag about! “Hey guys- the Creator of the universe loves me!” *screams from the top of my lungs*
The love I have been seeking for since I was 16 years old was in the One who knew me before I knew myself. He was waiting in the exact place where we left off – extending His hands filled with love toward me. That is why I started blogging about love because I wanted to find an authentic love, one that was selfless and rooted deep in passion and security. This love I sought to find was in front of me in the person of Yeshua. He is the definition of this love. It took me a year to come to this place but I’m so happy that I got here. I’m happy I’m loved by Him.
One day, Yeshua is going to allow someone who can emulate His love to love me. He has hand-picked some young dapper guy (lol) to come into my life, to fill it with the happiness He seeks for me. This guy should see this choosing as an honor, a divine privilege, because God did not have to choose him for me- but He did! The guy God gives me is going to be one of the best gifts given because this guy is the emulation of God’s love towards me- absolutely perfect! I’m excited for who God is going to give me and I’m so thankful that the Creator loves me deeply. Guys, God loves me! He really loves me!
Until next time,
