It’s always been YOU

You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water. I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory. Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I live and, in your name, I will lift up my hands. I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips, my mouth will praise you. On my bed I remember you; I think of you through the watches of the night. Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings. I cling to you; your right hand upholds me. ~Psalm 62: 1-8

What is with people, that we always romanticize love?

And yet when we think that “this is love” we still feel that it is not what we thought it would be? We crave for something that seems impossible and yet in our minds, we know that it does exist?

How do we even know it does?

In our quest for something that seems unknown, the feeling and the belief that “it” is there. We tell ourselves that “someday.”  Someday? What is that even mean? And when is that someday ever come?

We lose track of time; going through many mishaps in life just to find out that the “someday” has actually – arrived? When did that happen? And who was that?

Through the journey of our lives, we missed the important and beautiful moments that are right in front of us.

Life has its ironic way of presenting petty stuff that creates confusion. An illusion of things that blurs our mind. We forget to laugh off those silly mistakes and disagreements.

Hours that we spent on rationalization and trivial conversations.

With YOU –

There is no, someday.

You are here now.

You are always here right beside me.

You are there before me.

And always there with me.

You have always walked alongside me in all my journeys in life. Still is!

No need to go through unsettled discussions, sleepless nights, abandonment, and uncontrolled negative emotions.

I can remain silent and still know that you are there; that you will always stay – forever.

Lord Jesus, it has always been YOU.

I love you with all my heart, my mind, my soul…. forever more.
