I’ve just returned from the gym and talked to God on the way back.

This isn’t the valentine’s day I had expected this year. Yet another year watching other couples go out and be left alone. I’m not whining I assure you but just wanted to know if that’s the way it was supposed to be. I mean, it’s not like I’m the only one alone right?!

So as I took a deep breath and tried to push the thought out of my mind, my ipod started to play “I Just Want You” by Planetshakers. God is quite the romantic eh? haha. I know, that song talks about how WE should want HIM and not so much the other way round but as I looked up at the sky it seemed almost as if he was singing it to me. The wind gently pulled away the curtain of clouds only to reveal a vast expanse of night sky with stars shining. It was as if to say

“look, the creator of that sky, and so much more, wants you. He just wants you. Not you with skirts, dresses, makeup, a perfectly crafted doxology and Mozart-like piano skills. Just you. That’s all.”

And it’s this love that I have been quite aptly reminded of this evening just when I was so itching to message someone just to tell them I missed them even if the “longing” wasn’t returned.

So here was just another evening that I struggled to let God lead me and He came through for me with a love song.

Thank you Jesus. (:
