Hiring a golf pro and learning to play golf simply because you want to find a man, is not advisable. Paying a few thousand dollars to join the Country Club only because your odds of finding the man of your dreams increases, isn’t advisable, either. What about hanging out in the frozen food section of your local grocer, you ask? It’s your thing, you can do what you want to do but neither is that advisable.
Why would I not consider these as three wonderful ways to find a mate? Didn’t your grandmother ever tell you, “honey, you don’t have to go looking for trouble. Trouble will find you?” I’m not saying men are trouble but the wrong one most definitely is! I will endorse looking for business opportunities, a certain pair of shoes or ways for personal growth but I am totally against looking for ‘love.’ Why should anyone have to look for something that’s so readily available?
God is love. His love is unconditional, too. You do not have to be a certain weight, height, have a particular hair or eye colour or job title. You are not required to have letters behind your name representing the degrees you’ve earned. It’s best if you decided to have a B.A. designation, Born Again, that is. I advocate healthy living and higher education. I do not want to be falsely accused of not advocating either. I contend it doesn’t matter who you are, what you look like, what you’ve done or haven’t done, where you live, your race or ethnic background or if you’re a member of a Country Club or not. You have had unconditional love before you were ever born.
I’ll warn you, there are some rules to follow if you do not ever want to be separated from this love. Did I hear a gasp? Country Clubs have rules, too. Some have very strict requirements related to membership involving income, social class, who you know and your family’s name. You need not worry about any of these pre-qualifications. You get unconditional acceptance and love all without charge. In fact, the price has already been paid for you. Think about it, how can you beat that with a stick? (Another of my grandmother’s sayings.)
When I discovered such an unselfish and forgiving Love, I wept over my unworthiness of being given such a gift. This Love is so kind, considerate, unselfish and forgiving until one can choose it without being forced to accept it. The choice is ours. It’s not imposed on anyone but I’m inclined to believe there are many who would rather not be given a choice of this everlasting Love but to have it forced on them because when we desire to do what is right; but we do wrong and feel unworthy all over again. We must remind ourselves, Love keeps no record of wrongdoings. How awesome is that? This love is perfect!
Most of us were given the choice of choosing a mate without our parents choosing for us. We may have a reason to blame them if they chose and the relationship didn’t last. If we choose to accept this divine Love we have no worries about things not working out unless we opt out. We will never be forsaken even in our darkest times of need or greatest times of joy. In fact, this Love is the source of all joy! This Love is available that we might have life and have it in abundance! We are breathing so we are alive but to have life in abundance means to have joy, joy and more joy in the every day things we do! What great news, yes?!
The Love you so desperately need is inside you. Submitting to it means opening yourself up to the greatest Love in all the universe and in heavenly places. You will find when you readily accept it as you have been readily accepted by it, all other things will be added unto you. You must believe this and accept it as having already happened. That’s faith. I promise you it works and is true. Stop looking for love in all the wrong places. The greatest Love is inside of you!
