ITunu Taiwo: Girl Meets God, Then Meets Boy

Some of us don’t get to begin this way.

To be honest, we’ve all had a few glitches that caught up with our heels in a relationship only for us to look back and be like…

“Really?”

“That guy?”

And maybe you’ve not been in a relationship before but you’ve gotten to a stage where we’ve drawn so close to God that we begin to ask ourselves why we wasted so much time on a certain person just because we were not just able to see.

Maybe we hadn’t met God yet.

Now let me tell you something about meeting God. You begin to see through His lens. Intimacy with Him makes you crave for things you never craved for in the past. That’s what intimacy does. Sometimes I don’t feel I have enough words to justify how I can describe this intimacy. It’s the kind of intimacy that makes your heart beat for Him, that makes you unable to settle for less. That makes you realize that you would rather have God than have something else without God.

And so settling for less would be like cheating on God. I don’t know if that makes any sense to you. Let me try and make it clear in every possible way I can. When you’re with God and your passion is with Him and for Him, He blinds you, or better said, makes you see, it would be impossible for you to settle for less. Your spirit is one with God and so therefore you will find it hard, really hard to settle with someone whose spirit isn’t one with God.

God is your lover, and whoever isn’t doing the lovey dovey thing with God can’t be joined together with you.

Settling for less would be like cheating on God

God claimed you to be His. He is the divine romancer.

The one who chases after us (Jeremiah 2v2) (Hosea 2v14) even when we tried running away.

The one who has always been calling out to us ever since the beginning of time.

The one who took us and clothed our nakedness after washing us. (Ezekiel 16 vs 14-32).

The one who leaves the 99 sheep and goes looking for just one sheep.

The one who sees his betrothed from afar and comes running to embrace her in his arms. (Luke 15 vs 11-32). He doesn’t even wait for us to come and beg. He sees us already on our way and He comes running and reaching for us.

The passion He has for us is unfathomable. Just like the Song of Solomon says,
Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame.

That’s how the love of God can consume us sometimes. And jealousy, He is a jealous one, not wanting His son or daughter settle for less or anything that would not allow Him have a dwelling place in them. Like the Israelites when they prostituted themselves with the ungodly. We all knew how God’s jealousy raged. But God won’t stop at raging.
He wants to keep wooing His bride.

And I wouldn’t blame Him. Have you ever seen a jealous husband or wife before? Don’t let them catch their spouse cheating.

A woman who is going to be complete, or aims to be complete, must first seek her abode in Christ, so that He will build her, His word will nourish and wash her, and she would be like the trees planted by the rivers of water. Her love for God will be stronger than oak, no man can shake.
And when boy comes, the one the Master brings to her, they will be there together, to complement one another, and to bring glory to His name.

For that is what we were created for in the first place.

Much love.
Xo!

But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

    • Awww, I’m reading it right now and I’m wondering where the words came from. Thanks girlfriend 🙂

  1. A good write up.
    We must always strive to be a lover of God, because He first love us. then love ourselves because that is so important(no one can love us first, except we love ourselves first)

    • Hmmn, well He loved us first so that’s true. And He helps us to be better lover of ourselves and others. Not in a selfish way but in the godly way. Our understanding of God’s love doesn’t come in a day. It’s something that keeps getting wider and deeper and broader and Paul made mention of this. It’s only when we grasp this, we see ourselves through His eyes and the love begins to grow in our hearts.

      Thanks Olawumi.

  2. Good good, just noticed I commented on the wrong box…..loool, I could see His love in your words.

    • And I pray that His love may continue to shine and reflect so that all may see how much He’s really into us. Thanks Ajia!

  3. Wow…am blessed beyond words….indeed God always chases after us..more grace to carry on..
