All my life I looked forward to that special someone…not knowing that I thought it would satisfy an ache only the Lord could satiate.
It sounds paradoxical; I have everything that the world says is the peak of happiness: love and security in a relationship – someone who holds me and thinks I’m wonderful – and yet I am not satisfied.
How is it that I have everything that the world tells me I need and I still want more? The “more” that I want is God. I’m not trying to be cliché; this isn’t something I was so sure about my whole life. I didn’t know that when that “special someone” came along, I would want the Lord more than ever.
I guess what I’m saying is that if you’re a single out there, know that even though “that person” may be wonderful, they will by no means satisfy that longing that the Lord can fulfill. It took me quite a while to find this out myself, but now I have experiential knowledge on the subject.
