Recently, I was giving my testimony and God reminded me of my own powerful experience of coming into the knowledge of His love. When I think about this, it always takes me back to…
…the day I realized I’d fallen in love with God.
It was on August 6, 2015, on my son’s graduation trip. We were in Rome. By this time in my life, I’d spent about three years seriously pursuing God by spending time with Him every morning and allowing Him to transform me. As I’d come closer to Him, I learned He was totally trustworthy.
God had proven—by far—that He was my most faithful Friend.
However, that morning as I spent time with Him and began to be filled with His comfort, peace, and joy—there was something even more amazing-–an elated rush of emotion which was the same feeling I’d only experienced when falling in love. It was completely unexpected. You see, it never occurred to me that I could fall in love with God. But the sheer anticipation of His presence was sparking the deepest part of my soul.
I couldn’t wait to be close to God!
I knew His was the love I’d searched for my entire life. He was the One with whom I wanted to weather all of life’s trials and celebrate every triumph. His three-year track record of love and friendship had proven that He would never abandon me and would always be my strength and comfort.
Although He had loved me since before I was born, I never understood the goodness of His love until AFTER I began to seek Him.
To commemorate falling in love, God gave me a the song “Whom Have I?” The words were inspired by Psalms:
“I am continually with you; you hold my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will receive me to glory. Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”Psalms 73:23-26
God holds my hand, guides me, intently desires my heart, comforts me and gives me more than I ever asked for or imagined. No love in my life has ever been compared to His.
I’ve fallen in love with God and I can’t ever imagine life without Him!
My heart sings to God,
“You are all I want; You are all I need. Whom in heaven besides Thee?”
