Most of us are experts in the biology, but we are illiterate when it comes to the beautiful. We tirelessly search for it but we will never find it until we realise that the beautiful only comes from God. No matter how many times we have sex, no matter how many times we hear the words ‘I love you”, it will forever be empty if it isn’t connected with the God who invented true love and is Himself the Author of romance. When you take God out of the centre of your world, everything sweet, tender, pure and lovely is sure to quickly follow.
Inviting God to write the chapters of our love story involves work on our part - not just scattered prayers here and there, not merely a feeble attempt to find some insight by flopping open the Bible every now and then. It’s seeking Him on a daily basis, putting Him in first place at all times, discovering His heart… As you get to know Him and His Word, you will understand His desires for you. It takes effort. It isn’t easy. But it’s the key to discovering the sweeter song.
