Lots of people have heard of him. They’ve heard me talked about him on numerous occasions. Him and I met and talked a few times. I was not interested. But it was clear that He liked me. He was showing a lot of interest in me. But I always shied away. Our best conversation took place in October 2004 at my aunt’s house in Brooklyn, New York on a Sunday night. From that moment I fell in love with Him.
As we were in the living room He whispered to me:
I promise to protect you.
I promise to provide for you.
I promise to love you.
I promise to always be present in your life as long as you would allow me to.
He was perfect. I quickly came to see that a Man like this is every woman’s dream and I would be a fool to let Him go.
This Man was no other than God. He was the first Man to pursue me. He promised to love me unconditionally. He knew that no one would be able to love me like He can. For years, He was running after me. I can recall going to church at a young age and listening to messages and then feeling His pursuit figuratively. That day in 2004, I decided to give Him a try. This was the BEST decision that I have ever made.
Someway, somehow, God is pursuing you too. He may not pursue you the way He pursued me. But I know without a shadow of doubt that He is. I want to tell you this. He is not like every other man. He is incomparable. He is indeed DIFFERENT. He loves differently – unconditionally. He speaks differently – with a still small voice. He gives differently – sacrificially. Next time He comes knocking, don’t be afraid to open your door to let Him in. I can’t wait for you to meet Him.
