My Beloved

Sunday, March 03, 2013

Everyone remembers their first love. Their is something special about the emotions and the whole excitement of it all. Now think of your husband or wife and think how that relationship made you feel at the first and then as it developed. Everyone could tell you were in love. You smiled a little broader and stepped a little lighter and there was a glow about you from your eyes to every inch of your being. Remember back to the day of your salvation, if you have had one. Remember how excited you were, how much lighter you felt and how you had that glow about you that was hard to mistake. Through the years, many of us lose that glow and excitement and the honeymoon ends so to speak. Real life enters in and our joy is a little less and the excuses creep in as to why it's not as important to spend time with the One who loves us as it is to sit in front of the television or talk on the phone. We lose touch and before we know it, our love has grown cold. Who changed? God's love is as passionate for us today as it was at the time of our salvation. He wants to be our Beloved again and for us to run after Him with squealing in delight. He wants the long walks and intimate talks, the romantic dinners where the feast is not the food set before us. We have been content with the crumbs that fall from the table when he has a banquet set in our honor. So how do you renew that spark you once felt? Let nothing come between you and Him. Saturate yourself in His presence. Make Him your priority and everything else second to Him. Before long, you will find yourself giggling with excitement at the anticipation of your meeting. Other people, though important, will seem less so. Let Him romance you again and be a willing participant. Let duty fall by the wayside of true affections. Seek Him while He may be found, for tomorrow may be too late.

    I remember vividly the day I was "trapped" by a minister on the way out of church and led to pray for salvation. I was about 10 years old. My buddies had escaped the man's clutches and went on without me. But you know what? When I left that church after that simple prayer I had the most pure feeling of cleanliness I had never before experienced. Then, as you so aptly have said, wrong decisions slowly chipped away that feeling. It will come back but boy, what a glorious day that was. Be well. -- Lou
