“But whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into eternal Life.” -John 4:14.
On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out saying “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. “He who believes in Me as the Scriptures has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’’ -John 7: 37-38.
I believe in love. I believe in finding happiness. I believe in the dream of a woman- to be found out by her man. I had always been in that place where a woman just dreams. I had dreamt severally about this imaginary man who would make me his woman and treat me like his queen. I was far from being perfect but I had my little long list.
I needed a strong man and a real man to protect me, someone who would be faithful to me, and an able shoulder to cry on. I wanted my man to be someone who would just listen and comfort me, a man who would be a friend, a big brother I never had and the father I lost early. I needed a man who could and would provide all my needs and still consider my wants, am man who would just love me with or without makeups – I love looking good anyways. And of course I wanted a man who would be a gentleman for me yet not let me push him around. I wanted him handsome. He had to have a good sense of humor and an intelligence quotient that I could never match. My man had to be a very romantic lover whose words and kind gestures would make me tear up. I craved for a man whose gaze would be lovingly unbearable and who I know would enjoy watching me sleep. I wanted a soul mate. I longed for this man to come quickly, notice me as love stories go and take me along with him.
Like the woman at the well I went from man to man hoping to find my man. Something seemed to be missing- I was never satisfied. None ever fit me like lock and key. I always left these men unsatisfied- I couldn’t really afford to be unhappy. The gap in my heart needed to be filled. I was that doughnut with a hole, I was thirsty. At a point I thought I was asking for too much wanting all I wanted but thank God a man filled that void.
When I wallowed in the emptiness within me, when my soul wasted away, I found love. I found love when I least expected to. I found love when I didn’t know He had always been there. I felt I had waited for too long not knowing that He was the one who had done all the waiting. He had wooed me on several occasions butt I never took note of Him – oh how enduring is the love of my Galilean lover. I heard His lines but I never seemed to get it. “BELIEVE AND RECEIVE” He said, and when I accepted His proposal I came alive.
Like the woman at, He knew me too well. He knew and saw all that I ever did yet He loved me.
My Galilean lover is everything I ever craved in a man. His muscles were toned from carpentry, and His Words sharp enough to chase my accusers. He wrapped me in His love and I fear nothing. He is that gentleman who still never changes His mind. He is Meekness and Majesty, Manhood and Deity, aka Velvet and Steel. You may argue any case with Him but be sure that He cannot be trapped by logic- He is Philosophy and Logic. Oh He is so romantic, His style of proposal top notch. His life the diamond ring- very costly. And guess what He never sleeps, He never slumbers because He loves to watch me sleep.
He is that perfect man for the perfect me- at least He said, and that is final! In His love letter, He told me that I am His righteousness and He is my right standing. I don’t have to impress Him- He loves me! Death cannot do us part because we live forever, and I am here to share my man.
With Yeshua, I am never jealous or insecure because He is too intoxicated to dump me- besides He says “I will never leave you or abandon you”.
“But as many received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of man, but of God.”
-John 1:12-13.
