Valentine’s Day Edition: I’m Falling In Love?

 

 

20th Bday Shoot 20Hey guys,

How are you all doing? For those of you who don’t know, I’m a pisces.  My birthday is (February 27th).  One of the characteristic traits that we are supposed to have is being hopeless romantics. I’ve got to admit, I definitely fall into that pisces stereotype. What can I say I love love? However, I’ve also been vocal in saying that I’ve been single basically my whole life. I can talk about the season of singleness in another post.

However,  now in this stage of my life, I’ve fallen deeply in love with someone.

His name is…Jesus. Now before you leave this post thinking that I used the title for clickbait, let me explain.

While strengthening your relationship with Jesus is important anytime, it is even more critical in the time of singleness. If you’re a Christian, you have to be whole in yourself and in your identity with Christ before you can add someone else to the mix. Two “half” people don’t make a whole, two whole people do.

With this in mind, I want to share a little bit about how I fell in love with Jesus.

As many people do,  I grew up in the Christian faith.  I always had a relationship with God, but like most people, that relationship fluctuated. I am not perfect, so I would fall short with the same sins routinely over and over again.

Last year, I felt like I really rededicated my life to Christ again. I made conscious efforts to pray actively, dig into his word, and really seek intimacy.  I’m blessed to say that this growth has continued through this year.

Fast forward to today and I feel the giddiness of falling in love. Jesus is my best friend and the person I can tell my deepest secrets, insecurities and fears.  The best part is that I know that he loves me more than I can or will ever love him. He shows me by waking me up every morning, giving me good health, peace, purpose, favor, and blessings.

The song “Reckless Love” by Bethel Music, perfectly describes the intensity of God’s love for us. It just amazes me that the creator of the Universe can love me so much that he died for me. It has me shook that he wants relationship with me of all people.

So if you’re single like me or even if you are in a relationship, I encourage you all to fall in love with God. It is more fulfilling and satisfying than any human relationship can possibly give you.

Plus, when you seek him, all good things will be added unto you. It’s a win-win situation.

I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day.

Love,

Abisola
