I have prayed for companionship
And my life’s true love.
I have been forever seeking
For that special soul to love.
An emptiness I have always felt
That has longed to be fulfilled.
Worldly treasures, earthly gain
Could never satisfy the lonely pain.
It has taken much to realize
That the very one I sought,
Was waiting all along for me
Though, it wasn’t whom I thought.
I believed it laid in others –
The worth and value I sought.
Instead, it lay in Jesus
By His sacrifice, I’ve been bought.
Finally, my search is over
My greatest love I have found.
In Christ all truth, life and love
Forever more shall now abound.
Whether you are a Christian or not, married or single, do you feel as if something is lacking in your life? Often times, we place too much of our self-worth and value in whether or not we are receiving the love and approval of others. While others’ opinions are valuable to us, in hopes that we may recognize our short comings and continue to change and grow, our ultimate value and self-worth do not lay in those opinions.
Our value and self-worth have already been purchased through the blood of Jesus Christ and should be based on what He has to say about us. Once we recognize and obtain this true, biblical view of love, we will quit looking to other people or our mates to fulfill us in these ways. In return, our new attitude will then free those people in our lives to love us even more, because we will quit being so selfish by placing all that responsibility on them. This healthy perspective is a wonderful gift we can bestow on them and ourselves!
God’s greatest petition and gift to mankind is that He paid the ultimate sacrifice for us and He desires to be our one true love. Is He yours? Since it is love that people are looking for and “God is love” (1 John 4:8) then ultimately, God is what people are looking for!
