The Ultimate Love Experience

The ultimate love you can experience begins by observing the first two commandments as revealed by Jesus. The first is “love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength” (Mark 12:30). The next is to “love your neighbor as yourself” (12:31). Fulfilling these is a full-time job that will take you a lifetime.

Perhaps we spend way too much time looking for someone to love us the way we should love ourselves. Too much time waiting for someone else to complete the picture in our lives when God already has. As we are consumed with love for God, we get a healthy appreciation for whom He created us to be, and we become whole in Him. That is transferred to how we treat others. Everything else becomes a pleasant addition to a cup already running over.

As we walk in expectation and a spirit of gratitude, God gives us the grace we need to live joyfully each and every day no matter what our current status. Finding love should never be complicated, just God orchestrated. Trust His timing. Trust the fact that He created you desirable and lovable. Trust that God has the best plans for your life. Trust Him because the best is yet to come.

Keep Your Goal in Mind

Friend, never give a man the luxury of wasting your time. Every day you spend with him is a day you’re off the market. Some men will string you along because they are selfish. They don’t want you permanently, but they like what you add to their lives. If they can feed you just enough carrots to keep you around, that works for them. Don’t let them. You’re simply putting off the hurt that’s coming your way. It will arrive eventually, and you’ll be more angry at yourself for allowing the relationship to drag on the way it did.

Keep your goal in mind. Set a time limit based on a reasonable dating period and how long you can afford to wait. Stick to your deadline, and be willing to walk. This is a gamble you must take because your future is at stake. You can’t afford to allow someone to have that much power over your future if he is not willing to make a full investment. Think of it this way. He is standing in the way of what you truly desire—a lifetime of love with a partner who sees and recognizes your worth. And that is a prize great enough to put a relationship on the line for.

Keeping It Real

Anyone who has gotten something she aspired to took a risk. Love is more than a decision. It is a risk—a blind leap of faith or the ultimate bungee jump, if you will. That brings to mind a beautiful picture! Take the leap and entrust the cords of your heart to God. He is able to keep you from hurting yourself. Stop jumping to your own conclusions. Seek God for the inside info on the person you’re considering and then listen to “what God reveals.”

Peace is the confirmation of God’s plan for your life. When you don’t have peace, do nothing. Don’t move forward or release your heart to someone until you have God’s peace. When you have His peace about the relationship, don’t anticipate problems. Believe in the power of love and the power of God to keep your heart and your relationship healthy and satisfying. What it takes to get your man is what it takes to keep him—and it boils down to faith.
