My sacred romance

Listening to: Track 2 – Josh Groban – Unknown Album (10/20/2004 9:56:06 PM)

Now, I have not yet read John Eldredge’s book “The Sacred Romance” however, God is showing Alexis and I the magnificent beauty of having God as the center strand of our love affair. If it were not for Him there is absolutely no way I could ever love a person as I do right now. I can honestly say that I am head over heals for her and that I can not imagine life without her, just as life with out Jesus is a very scary thought for me, life without Alexis just wouldn’t be right. She is certainly not an idol to me, but she is the object of my love, right now, right here, and God is the eternal object of my love. I know without any doubt, with full certainty, that the God I serve, love, adore, and revere is true.

This isn’t just because I am courting an amazing, beautiful young lady, it is because when I made the decision to enter into Jesus’ will, and honor, glorify, and praise Him for everything, my entire life got meaning. I have a meaningful life, a life of hope. When I look back over the past five years, there are so many miracles, everything lines up, my life is not just a bunch of random decisions, it is beautifully crafted for purpose.

Two people can accomplish more than twice as much as one; they get a better return for their labor. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But people who are alone when they fall are in real trouble. And on a cold night, two under the same blanket can gain warmth from each other. But how can one be warm alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken. [Ecclesiastes 4:9-12]
