A Note to God About Committing with Someone

Posted by Goldi on Dec 30, 2010 at 3:19 PM 5 comments
Dear God,

I am about to be ready to commit myself to someone I fell in love with. Could I take him now? I have prayed for him for quite a time already.

But God said:

Not now, not until you are satisfied, fulfilled and content with being loved by me alone. You need to give yourself to me--totally unreserved--because only in me your satisfaction is to be found. And when you learn to commit yourself to me alone, only then is the right time for you to be capable of a perfect human relationship that I have planned for you, long before you thought about it. You will never be united with another until you are united with me. You will never learn to speak and understand the true language of love until you hear me speak it. You will never learn how it is to love and be loved until you feel the tender touch of my LOVE.

I want you to stop planning. Stop wishing and allow me to step in and give you the most surprising and exciting plan that you can imagine. You are my child. I want you to have the best. Please allow me to bring it to you. Fix your eyes on me and expect the greatest things as you watch. Keep experiencing the satisfaction that I AM. Learn all the things I tell you and be patient. Just wait.

Don’t be anxious. Don’t worry. Don’t look around and wish for things others may have got. Yours will be different because I LOVE YOU. Don’t look at things you think you want. They may not be the things I want for you. Look up straight at me because you might miss what I want to show you.

And then when you’re ready, I’ll surprise you with a lover far more wonderful than what you would ever dream of. But I won’t let you have it until you are ready and the one I have prepared for you is ready, until you are both satisfied exclusively with me and the LIFE I have prepared for you.

FIND ME... AND EVERYTHING ELSE THAT YOU THINK YOU NEED WILL BE PUT INTO YOUR LIFE! (Delight your self in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart -Psalm 37:4)

Yours truly,

This is some letter I found online ages ago, written by someone anonymous. I had this saved in my old blog and still finds it true at this time. I know people will always have this longing for someone to share the rest of their life with but truly, until we learn the same kind of love that God has, we will not be able to achieve this fulfilling kind of love that we want to share with a partner. Because God has the perfect love.

Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. ~John 15:13

Upon Watching 'The Last Song'

Posted by Goldi on Jun 24, 2010 at 10:04 PM 0 comments
I watched the movie The Last Song last night with Ate Bing. It's a kilig movie, common to the way author Nicholas Sparks writes stories about extraordinary--you will think it doesn't exist or it's very rarely experienced--kind of love, but this one's not all about romantic love though, and that's what I liked about it. It also showed love between parents & children, love between sibs, and love for friends.

For the curious cat in me and because I liked the movie, I searched quotable lines from it because I heard a lot while I was watching, and not only words of wisdom but also sarcasms and humor. But I only found a few documented by IMDB. Probably because the movie is new. The cinemas just ceased to show it a few weeks ago. Too bad I was not able to see it in the theater but I think this is something that you wouldn't mind seeing in a small screen. And in my search, this particular line kind of hit me in the face.

A truth means a lot when it's hard to admit.

It just made a lot of sense, probably because I am currently in a state of denial.
Denial is a defense mechanism postulated by Sigmund Freud (an Austrian Jewish neurologist), in which a person is faced with a fact that is too uncomfortable to accept and rejects it instead, insisting that it is not true despite what may be overwhelming evidence. The subject may use:
  • simple denial - deny the reality of the unpleasant fact altogether
  • minimisation - admit the fact but deny its seriousness (a combination of denial and rationalisation), or
  • projection - admit both the fact and seriousness but deny responsibility
I chuckled when I read the definition of denial in Wikipedia. How funny it was to find something that speaks so true of yourself.

What am I denying then? I'm afraid I can't talk about it here. I can't even admit it in front of my closest friends, but I think, people who know me for a long time now would be able to tell if I'm just denying something or if I'm really telling the truth. I can say to myself that I'm pretty good at having conviction on something that I would want everybody to believe in that I can even convince myself. But, a truth suppressed will just be more obvious the more you hide it, especially if it's about feelings. Ooops... I might be giving away too much already. I know in time, I'd be ready to admit this.

In time.
