I’m just going put it plain and simple…until we have found ourselves completely satisfied by the love Jesus showed to us when He gave His life on the cross, we will still be incomplete. We will still be searching for, longing for, fighting for that man or woman who we THINK completes us. We will constantly be hoping and dreaming that they’re out there…somewhere… and that once we find them, THEN we will know true love.
Sorry, that’s just not the case. Now don’t let this crash your dreams of meeting that special one that God has for you. I’m just saying that THEY will not be the one who completes you and they cannot be the one who satisfies you. My husband spoke on this Sunday. He said, “Only the One who made you, can complete you.” I love that and it’s so absolutely true.
We should be complete BEFORE we enter into a relationship with someone else. God is our designer, we are His masterpiece. We need to fall in love with HIM. We need to be satisfied with the love He has to offer us, the joy He has for us, and the blessings He is longing to pour out on us. No other human being can provide that kind of comfort. Quite frankly, it’s nor fair for us to even expect that from someone else. Yet we do it all the time. We go into relationships thinking that person completes us and when we finally realize they don’t, the search is on again trying to find one who does.
Save yourself the heartache….be complete in Christ first. Don’t settle for anyone who isn’t. Jesus is the ONLY one who satisfies!
“I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding. For I want you to understand what really matters, so that you may live pure and blameless lives until the day of Christ’s return. May you always be filled with the fruit of your salvation—the righteous character produced in your life by Jesus Christ[a]—for this will bring much glory and praise to God” – Philippians 1:9-11 NLT
