A Satisfying Love

Hey, have you ever been loved so good, that you thought, man if I never experience love again I could live with the memory of you forever!? No. Well I have. The deepest, purest most colorful love walked into my life in April of 2003 and I have never been the same. My husband wooed me with a love so divine, so Christ like that I thought, so this is what God’s love should feel like in human form. I thought to myself, if God called my husband home today there was a strong possibility that I would never marry again, because I would not want anything to taint the memory of what we had.

I often wondered in time past why Coretta-Scott King or Betty Shabazz never remarried, but after having had such an experience I believe it was for that very reason that they chose to remain widows. These women lived in light of unshakeable love, unquenchable faith and intolerable legacy. Who would taint such a satisfying love? Well tonight’s post is more about the love of my Savior that even trumps the love of my earthly husband. For you see, my Savior became broke and broken for me (according to 2 Corinthians 8:9; John 3:16). He bore my sin when He had committed none of His own (Isaiah 53:12). His family turned their backs because of His love for me and He still married me anyways (Matthews 27:46; Ephesians 5:25). Now I would say that’s some kind of love! The bible says, “What is man that thou art mindful of Him”? God’s mind is full of me all day everyday. He is working on my behalf to protect me, provide for me, express his unfailing love towards me in order to bring me in His loving care (Jeremiah 33:3). If you have never experienced a love quite so sacrificial and selfless as this, why not surrender your life to Him, He is still accepting more into the wedding party! If your marriage is dying, try satisfying it with the love that only Christ can give, I did!

  1. Dope. This puts a totally different light on how we look at our relationship with the Master. Initially, I thought you were talking about your husband. And as a proud (but not forever) single, I found myself wondering a little bit of how-did-he-do-what-he-did…before you snapped me back to real life.

    I’ve read the “what to do until love finds you” and the “knight in shining armor” books — all excellent at pointing us down the right path. But none is as powerful as having a living breathing example. Thank you for reminding me to get my head out of the clouds and focus on what really matters!

    • At the beginning I was definitely speaking about my husband, but I shifted focus to the Lord and how He loves us right! He used my husband early on in our marriage to show me how powerful love could be, and how gently divine it could feel. The tools he used were pure, he simply became involved in my world. He prayed for me, before I know pray was what I was lacking; he laughed with me and allowed me to be myself. He loved every curve and the ones he didn’t like so much he kept it to himself as he gradually helped me improve them. Oh yes, he showed me the Father’s love. He complimented me for the smallest things like straightening the closet, and the eye shadow on my eyes. He encouraged me when discouragement surrounded me on every hand, and pushed me toward my destiny. My husband is my biggest fan, and he proves it every time we attend a function where people have never heard me sing by telling them how wonderful a vocalist I am and asking for permission to let me use my gift. He gave me the confidence to try any and everything I dreamed of at least once. He is the earthly hero that points me back to my heavenly one. Thanks for the post!

    Wow!!! My fingers are snapping. This was simply beautiful. I know exactly what you are talking about because God has blessed me with an earthly example of His love in my soulmate. Bless you Sista as you write straight from the heart of God.
