words for the heart

As Christian teenagers it's very easy in this day and age to feel left out of the dating crowd, and even if you don't want to be dating right now, sometimes it's hard not wish that you were. So here's a little letter(that I did not write) for when you start feeling left out, impatient, or confused.

“Everyone longs to give themselves completely to someone- to have a deep soul relationship with another, to be loved thoroughly and exclusively. 
But to a Christian, God says....No; not until you are satisfied and fulfilled and content, living loved by Me alone, with giving yourself totally, unreservedly, to Me- to have intensely personal and unique relationship with Me alone. 

I love you my child, and until you discover that only in Me is your satisfaction to be found, you will not be capable of the perfect human relationship I have planned for you. You will never be united with another until you are united with Me, exclusive of any other desires or longings. 

I want you to stop planning, stop wishing, and allow me to bring it to you. You just keeping watching Me, expecting the greatest things. Keep experiencing that satisfaction of knowing that I AM. Keep learning and listening to the things I tell you. You must wait. Don’t be anxious. Don’t worry. Don’t look around at the things you think you want. 

Just keep looking off and away up to Me, or you will 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 ever dream of. You see, until you are ready and until the one I have for you is ready, until you are both satisfied exclusively with me and the life I have prepared for you, you won’t be able to experience the love that exemplifies your relationship with Me, and is thus, perfect love. 

I am working even at this moment to have both of you ready at the same time. And dear child, I want you to have the wonderful love. I want you to see in the flesh a picture of your relationship with Me, and to enjoy materially and concretely the everlasting union of beauty and perfection and love that I offer you with myself. 


I wish I knew who wrote this. But alas I do not. My small group leader found it on the internet and gave to me. 
Really this small letter has had more of an impact than I would have thought. I took it home and read it. I felt like God was sitting right across from me saying these very words. It helped me understand what I had been through and why.

The main things to take away from this is that God has a wonderful plan for you.Wait in His timing, and while you wait focus on God, and your relationship with Him. :)
