In terms of love and relationship many people seeking answers from the wrong person. Some people look for it in different places like social media networks, television, radio programs, novels, and books.
They usually say:
“Find someone who can see your brokenness”.
“Find someone who can complete you”.
“Find someone who is compatible and fit for you”.
“Find someone who can make you happy”.
While these statements are true but people are looking for it in the wrong places.
You can’t find true love in bars, dating sites or clubs.
You can’t find happiness on someone else in.
A friend shared to me a feedback about the book I wrote.
As you remember, during the Book Launch 2.0, I bought the best seller book by a famous author who gave her talk also. The book is
great, I can relate to her stories. But at the end of the day, it dragged my emotions down because of ‘broken’ moments I
repeatedly read. It was just my opinion and that’s what I felt after reading.
But upon reading your book, Wow! Dhenn it’s different! There’s really a great love I felt from the Lord during and after reading
your book Believing is just the Beginning. There’s an unexplainable thing when you feel the Love you’re looking for is
really from the Lord”.
Before I used to read books about love and desperation, books that will stir up my emotions. I also used to listen to the radio DJs, followed facebook pages and twitter profiles that are posting “words from the heart” or “hugot” as they said, because I am a hopeless romantic. But in the end, it dragged my emotions down because once again, I have been reminded of my lonely and broken moments in life.
Don’t ever waste or allow yourself to be soaked with it.
Don’t spend your life trying to find that someone. The world is so big, love yourself first so you can love others. Pursue your dreams and give all your heart into it. Always be a better version of yourself.
Don’t believe if anyone tells you that you need someone to depend on. You are not incomplete, you are not broken.
You are fearfully and wonderfully made by God. You are loved by God. He is only the one who can fill that emptiness within you. You don’t have to find Him because He is waiting for you to invite Him into your life. You are not broken but bent, let Him fix your life.
And you know what? If God wills to give you a partner, it will be in His time. Learn to be happy and content because if you are not happy single you will never be happy even in a relationship.
I am happy single for so many years already, but even if she does not arrive in anytime soon or in any time at all, I will draw my satisfaction from the love of the Lord that has already made me complete.
