I just can't explain how it felt in words, the overwhelming love I felt with the words He said and the sound His voice made.
It took me back 4-5 years when we first met and after praying every night for this moment it was more than I could've ever asked for and so much more.
In the middle of it all, I just wanted to fall to my knees and thank Jesus without saying another word to Him except "I love you" and believe me when I tell you I've been pinching myself every day since because I thought fairytales only existed in movies and books. Not to ordinary people like me.
It had been blessing after blessing and rightfully so, He's the love of my life and He returned by giving me new memories and miracles only Jesus could've created so anything He did or said was going to impact me profoundly.
He too is a Godly man, a righteous man, a man driven by all things Jesus was and is today, he was the epitome of a heavenly, angelic creation and it was his light I saw first, it left an impact on my heart like no other.
He knocked me out of this orbit and into a free-falling atmosphere of overwhelming tears of absolute happiness, gratitude, love, and a smile from me to God while muttering the words "thank you".
You must know before this I knew who I was in Jesus Christ but there were moments when I didn't believe I deserved Him or His love because of everything I was before meeting Him and became without His presence in my life.
This isn't to say I don't love Him because that too is something I cannot explain or at times understand being the force it is but I thought there may have been someone far better off out there for Him than me.
But this couldn't be further from the truth. God created in us both the perfect person to share our lives with. His intentions were always for the greater good even when it hurt a little from the pain that came from not feeling good enough.
And although it felt like the longest time to get where we are now I couldn't be more grateful for the entire journey. God did good with both of us...
I know that anchoring our hearts and soul to Jesus is the only way we can ever appreciate and accept this beautiful gift of each other. So that's what I'll do while loving Him just the same as God has loved me.
It's funny how it works, those scenic routes are much further and more painstaking but if you have the strength and patience to endure them your better self will thank you for it and so will the person who chooses you because not only are healed but you've found a Love in Jesus Christ you may have never found without the journey.
It was acceptance really, the acceptance that it all begins and ends with Jesus. He decides our path and sets out the plan keeping in mind what's in our hearts and prayers the whole time.
I am with Christ now and the love I am so very deserving of. May God always be within us and help us through the troubles and triumphs life will no doubt present to us as we start our life together.
In Jesus's Name... Amen.
