I met a new individual recently. He told me about his recent relationship that ended. The relationship had a bit of uniqueness about it which only told me how important the woman must have been to this man. The relationship had ended and I could see the disappointment in his countenance. I offered him some encouragement. He replied, “You sound exactly like her. She would have said something like that. She was that way too.” I said, “You know there are others of us out here…encouragers that is. She’s not the only one.” My point was this: Don’t hang your hat or your heart on the traits or character of one that didn’t stay with you. We sometimes tend to think that NO ONE else will ever have what they had and become sadder. Be encouraged; there are others out there who will have some of the same traits AND maybe even have a few more that are even more attractive to you! Maybe God just used a situation to show you a trait that you want to ask him for in your real future mate. Keep your heart offered up to God for healing. You will live again without that pain. You are dearly loved.
Kevin Levar is one of my newest, favorite music finds. Listen to the words of his song “What a Love” (below) all the way through. Up front, Kevin sings how he can only love his wife as deeply as he realizes how much Jesus loves him. He sings how he can only forgive his wife as he realizes how deeply God has forgiven him.
Consider the measure here…the measure of a man. Let’s get our God love down first and our love will go deeper within to ourselves and to others. I can’t love you true unless I know what real love is, and God is love. “Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love” (1 John 4:8). The MORE I know God, my Father through Jesus and the Holy Spirit, the more I’ve got to give you.
We thank you God for your immeasurable love and faithfulness.
Kevin Levar and his wife have a very interesting testimony of their singleness, celibacy and becoming man and wife. Older age does not leave you out of love.
"What a Love" God gives.
Wisdom & encouragement to share with others!
