I came across this poem during my time in college and rediscovered it in 2005. The Lord’s plans are perfect and if we wait on Him, He will be glorified, we will be blessed, and the light of Christ will shine brighter. Read and meditate on this poetic oration of God to His child as it relates to romance and relationships.
A Message to Those Who Wait
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 a Christian says,
“Lo, not until you are satisfied, fulfilled,
And content with living being loved by Me alone.
Not until you have given yourself totally, unreservedly to Me alone.
And not until you discover that only in Me is your satisfaction to be found,
You will not 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 can’t imagine.
I want you to have the best, the very best.
Please allow Me to bring it to you–
Keep watching Me, expecting the greatest things,
Keep experiencing the satisfaction, knowing I AM,
Keep learning and listening to the things I tell you–
YOU MUST WAIT.
Don’t be anxious, don’t worry, and don’t look around at the things
Others have gotten or that I have given them.
Don’t look at the things you think you want.
You just keep looking straight ahead to Me and the Cross,
Or, YOU WILL MISS WHAT I WANT FOR YOU.
And then, when you are ready, I’ll surprise you
With a love more wonderful than any you would ever dream.
You see, until you are ready and until the one I have for you is ready–
And know that I am working even this minute to have you both ready at the same time–
Until you are both satisfied exclusively with Me and the life I have prepared for you,
You won’t be able to experience the love that exemplifies
Your relationship with Me–
And this is PERFECT LOVE.
And Dear One, I want you to have the 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 perfection and love, that I offer you with Myself.
Know that I love you utterly.
I am God Almighty:
Believe and be satisfied.”
