The Tale of an Empty Bench and of Finding Love

An empty bench.

Same as with every single soul praying for and wishing to find love, this bench sits there day in and day out, hoping to be a witness to a love story like no other. A love story perfectly authored by God.

The lady in waiting.

Then there’s the lady who’s been praying for that special someone to finally come her way. She goes there during her free time. Just thinking about different thoughts on life and love. Observing the people passing her left and right. Holding in her heart that earnest hope that one of those people walking pass through her will take time to look at her and see beyond what could be seen by the naked eye. Someone who will take time to look at what’s inside her heart.

Most of us walk that path of patiently waiting for ‘the one.’. Praying. Waiting. Hoping. Sometimes losing hope. Praying again and regaining that small spark of hope to finally meet that ‘person’ in one of our visits to that place where we spend most of our times wishing that love will finally walk on by, sit with us and stay there forever.

And then he walks on by.

Sits with her….and she finds herself enjoying every bit of moment spent with him. It’s as if spring has finally arrived in her life.

And there’s colors everywhere.

Could he be ‘the one?’

We always find ourselves asking that question over and over again every time we meet someone. The thought of spending the rest of our lives with that person excites us to bits.

Giving our much-coveted ‘YES’ to that person requires a lot of praying and thinking and contemplating. It might seem easy at first especially if you’re having that ‘kilig’ feeling over that guy. But true love goes beyond that ‘kilig’ feeling. Always aim for that ‘love at last sight’ thing more than the ‘love at first sight’ for is speaks of fidelity and loyalty till your last breath.

Most of all, love should be under God’s oversight. It is one thing to feel in love but it is one very important thing to be in love under the blessings of God. It is a much heartwarming feeling. It’s as if happiness has no ending and occasional heartaches are just flowers to keep your garden of love bloom in beauty all the more.

God is the Ultimate Author of the best love stories ever told and He is very much concerned with our love lives more than we do for ourselves. Just a trust in His timing is all He’s asking of us before he could finally let us meet ‘the BEST one’ for us. Seek Him first and let His desires for you overpower your own heart’s desires.

Love is a union of 3.

When you finally get the confirmation from God, that’s the only time that you can say that true love has finally found you. We can find different kind of loving feeling in this world—from that guy who keeps on sending you messages in Facebook, or your officemate who’s being extra sweet and caring to you, or that guy you’ve met in a party; but it is only in pursuing the desire of God in your life that could make you feel truly in love, happy and satisfied.

God is our very own Dr. Love. You need not dial a number and let your voice be heard in the airwaves to understand what you’re feeling. You don’t even need to pay a high price to know who’s the one for you. A simple and sincere quiet time with Him is all you need. Listen closely to what He’s telling you and let His small voice overpower the desires of your heart.

Let God sit in a special place in your relationship. You need not worry about how to keep that love strong and how to make it last forever because God will be the one to make those things possible.

I haven’t found that kind of love yet but I am believing in the kind of love that God has destined for me. I just know that when that time comes, it’ll be the best kind of feeling I could ever feel. And yes, I am excited for that kind of love that only God could bring my way:-)
