perfect love.

I found these words a while ago… but they never really resonated with my heart until now. I wanted to share them, because I know there are some people in my life who could stand to hear them with me. To let them fill your heart and live them out as truth.

Because it is true. We have a great love in front of us right now, even while we wait…

Sometimes, we just don’t even recognize it as everything it is and should be.

It’s perfect.

It’s His love.

It’s our love.

It’s the greatest love we’ll EVER know.

Love is Here. Love is NOW.

Love is Perfect.

And in this season of my life, I need reminders like this. To keep my life on track, to keep my heart in the right place, and to help me remember what I have right now… not what I’m ultimately seeking.

thank you.

Everyone longs to give themselves completely to someone, to have a deep soul relationship with another, to be loved thoroughly, and exclusively. But God says:

“Not until you are satisfied, fulfilled and content with being loved by Me. With having an intensely personal relationship with Me alone, discovering that only in Me is your satisfaction to be found, will you be capable of the perfect human relationship that I have planned for you. You will never be united with another until you’re united with Me, exclusive of anyone or anything else, exclusive of any other desires or longings. I want you to stop planning, stop wishing, and allow Me to give you the most thrilling plan existing, one that you cannot imagine. I want you to have the BEST. Please allow Me to bring it to you. You Just keep watching Me, expecting the greatest things. Keep experiencing the satisfaction that I AM, Keep listening and learning the things I tell you. You just wait, that’s all.

Don’t be anxious. Don’t worry. Don’t look around at the things others have received. Don’t look at the things you think you want. You just keep looking off and away up to Me, or you’ll miss what I want to show you.

And then, when you’re ready, I’ll surprise you with a love far more wonderful than any you would dream of. You see, until you are ready and until the one I have for you is ready (I am working even at this moment to have you both ready at the same time), until you both are satisfied exclusively with me and the life I have prepared for you, you will not be able to experience the love that exemplifies your relationship with Me, and thus the PERFECT LOVE.

And dear one, I want you to have the most wonderful love. I want you to see in the flesh a picture of your relationship with me, and enjoy materially and concretely the everlasting union of beauty, perfection and love.

Know that I love you utterly. I am God. Believe in it and be satisfied.”

it could go on forever.

“There’s a reason I said I’d be happy alone. It wasn’t because I thought I’d be happy alone… It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It’s easier to be alone. Because what if you learn that you need love and then you don’t have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It’s like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever…” – Grey’s Anatomy

i read this quote tonight in a moment where it spoke to me.

and i couldn’t cry like I think I wanted to… or maybe needed to.

but I love Grey’s Anatomy, and I love this quote.

and right now, I certainly hope this doesn’t go on forever…
