True Romance

I have a confession to make.

I sure do love me some romance.

The Harlequin novels I read in high school set me up for some serious disappointments when those college guys came callin’.  Truth be told those poor fellows did not stand a chance against the delusions running a-muck in my head.

We do that though.  We set our expectations so high that our men don’t stand a chance.

When it comes to God, though…we can’t set our gazes too high.  We can’t want Him too much.

There is not a woman alive who is too clingy for God.

Because, our God…He loves Him some romance, too.

My Beloved is mine, and I am His… – Song of Solomon 2:16 ESV
