(This was written at about midnight on August 7, 2014. Starts off as a conversation with God.)
Still awake. Haven't even began to dose off. So I am a little curious to know if there is anything You are wanting me to do right now. If its just that I'm a little restless, then speak to my mind to be still and rest. However, if You're just wanting a few moments with Your Bride, then I am most willing and happy to do so.
(Thoughts begin now. Some may be added as I write this version. LOL)
As ladies, we like to know how special we are from our husbands/boyfriends (well, from anyone really). So I really think it would be the same the other way around. Even though they may not voice it, our men, they need to know how special they are to us ladies. The man's role is not easy. Their role is to be the head. They are to provide. They are to make the final decision of the household. They are to be like Christ, willing to give their life for the ones they love, because of love.
I did say that most men will not voice their need of knowing how special they are. Some just don't show emotion like that. Don't judge them for it. Don't force them. I once dated a man who tried to force me to really express my feelings, but I didn't want to. Nothing personal, but why would I share feelings if I don't really mean them. Makes no sense. Saying, "I love you", it may just be three words, but those three words mean so much. We need to take them very seriously.
Love should be a simple action, but not taken lightly. We are told in the Bible to love the Lord with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength. Then to love our neighbors as we love ourselves.. Take these seriously, as they are the two most greatest commandments God ever gave. There have been times when I should have checked myself before saying "I love you" to some people. Please forgive me Lord for not being true. LOVE IS NOT A GAME!!! Love is and should be part of our everyday walk with Jesus. After all, Jesus fulfilled His Father's plan by becoming man, coming to earth, dying on a cross, and rising again. All for you and me. Why? Because of love. Maybe some can answer this question: who knows someone in their life who would honestly give their life for them? (Hope that made sense) You may not know of anyone, but then, there is someone who did just that...Jesus! All because of love.
God is love. Its what He's all about. His word is love from beginning to end. He's made us promises, that He WILL keep, because of love. When He made man, He made woman for man. He saw that it was NOT GOOD for a man to be alone. It's all because of love.
Because of His love for us, He's also made a way when there seems to be no way. Because of His love, He's one our battles. We have VICTORY through Him.
Whatever He does for you, whatever He does for me, its all because of how much He loves us. So don't you think we should express how much we love Him. Because the last time I checked, a relationship isn't a one-person effort. It requires all persons involved. Alos, don't just say "I love you", show it with action behind the words. Let people know how special they are to God. Let them know how much God really does love them. By doing this, you're letting God know how loved and special He is to you.
