I wrote this 7 years ago and just happened to reread my old writings today. This is still a good reminder on Valentine’s Day!
What a lie the world told me growing up, always leading me to believe in a lie that will never ever satisfy. I thought a specific man aka my Prince Charming would satisfy me some day. That I’d meet him, fall in love, be all butterflies inside and I’d be satisfied. I also thought, my efforts of success would add another level of satisfaction, as I identify myself as super woman. Well, that’s all a lie. A man will never complete me, as I am created to only be completed by God. I am created to only find true satisfaction and identity from the heavenly father who will ALWAYS complete me.
My fiancé (now husband) doesn’t complete me, he just points me to Christ. How unfair would it be for me to put that huge of a responsibility on a human being who is also a sinner saved by the grace of God and is called into a relationship with me solely to glorify the Lord through it. BUT God, God completes me, when I am so twisted in my own ways and clueless on what to do next, God swoops in and reveals himself to me. The truth of the Gospel message brings me back to my true identity, whom I’m created to be, needy and dependent on God and not on people or things.
My strength is found in being weak, not in my reliance on myself or others but only because of my dependance upon the Lord.
“But he said to me, my grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. There fore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” 2 cor 12:19
What a blessing it is to depend on the one who created us, on the one who delights in a relationship with us and on the one who loved us to the point of giving up his one and only sinless son for us.
Father, thank you for choosing me for this amazing relationship with you. I love you with all my heart and desire to know you more. You complete me!!
