This was shared to me by one of my closest friends many years ago when I first joined the Catholic Renewal 13-Sunday Seminar enroute to becoming part of the CFC Singles for Christ. I would like to share this now to all my friends, especially, Karen, and everyone else out there who has yet to find their lifetime partners. I believe that we really should pray for and ask God for that lifetime partner and not just jump into a relationship all for the sake of having one. True love is always worth the wait and if that love is a gift from God Himself, then that love will be of the lasting kind. God loves us and He will only give us the best...if we wait. I should know, it happened to me and it could happen to you:)
Everyone longs to give themselves completely to someone –
to have a deep soul relationship with another,
to be loved thoroughly and exclusively.
But God, to the Christian, says, No,
not until you are satisfied, fulfilled and content with being loved by Me alone –
with giving yourself totally and unreservedly to Me –
with having an intensely personal and unique relationship with Me alone
will you be capable of the perfect human relationship that I have planned for you.
You will never be united with another until you are united with Me –
exclusive of anyone or anything else, exclusive of any other desires or longings.
I want you to stop planning, stop wishing,
and allow Me to give you the most thrilling plan existing –
one that you cannot imagine.
I want you to have the best.
Please allow Me to bring it to you.
You just keep watching Me, expecting the greatest things –
keep experiencing the satisfaction that I am.
Keep listening and learning the things I tell you.
You just wait. That’s all. Don’t be anxious. Don’t worry.
Don’t look around at the things others have or that I’ve given them.
Don’t look at the things you think you want.
You just keep looking off and away up to Me,
or you’ll miss what I want to show you.
And then, when you’re ready,
I’ll surprise you with a love far more wonderful than any you would dream of.
You see, until you are ready,
and until the one I have for you is ready
(I am working even at this moment to have both of you ready at the same time),
until you are both satisfied exclusively with Me
and the life I prepared for you,
you won’t be able to experience the love
that exemplifies your relationship with Me,
and this is the perfect love.
And dear one, I want you to have this most wonderful love,
I want you to see in the flesh a picture of your relationship with Me,
and to enjoy materially and concretely the everlasting union of beauty,
perfection, and love that I offer you with Myself.
Know that I love you utterly.
I am God.
Believe it and be satisfied.
