Learning to approach Jesus as you Bridegroom may sound strange, but it is a language that women were designed to understand. Women long to be loved, to be cherished. God knows this because He made us that way. Think of most romance stories. Usually the hero deeply loves & sacrifices for his lady. The Bible can be viewed as a wonderful romance, telling us how much God loves us.
"...Love the Lord your God with all your heart & with all your soul & with all your mind."
Matthew 22:37 (NIV)
As humans, we are energized by romance. And when we realize just how much Jesus loves us, an amazing power is released. And just as we shouldn't settle for a ho-hum earthly relationship, that lack passion & joy, we shouldn't settle for a ho-hum relationship with Jesus. Instead, we should strive for that passion & joy through Bible study & prayer.....everyday. Moment by moment, be in communication with Jesus. How do you go about doing that? I heard a TV preacher once say that we thank God for stupid things. To me that's like if you don't know the answer, then there are no stupid questions. The Bible teaches us to "pray unceasingly". So, i guess, i'm one of those who gives thanks for "stupid" things as i talk to Jesus throughout the day. I thank Him for good parking places at Wal-mart (or anywhere); for His energy & stamina so that i can clean my house or take the dog for a walk; for losing 2 pounds last week; i sing, "I am weak, but Thou art strong" as i lift & or carry something heavy: & i pray for His words in challenging situation AND in writing my blog. =)
Like a mountain climber who catches a glimpse of the top of the mountain, it gives him the inspiration to keep on going, we can all catch a glimpse of invincible love in Jesus Christ. Dream big. Pray hard. Jesus is our Prince & this is no fairy tale.
