Recently, I have seen romances but without happy endings, the sad and bittersweet, better to have loves and lost, than never to have loved at all sort of things. They all had who people who either clicked or just got each other, or came to see it way too late after one had given up their life or their freedom to enjoy love.
Too many times, love stories are silly, Lord forgive me, even stupid. But you see morals in older programs and the fact that one person will give so much for another is indicative of God’s love. Today many women suffer under the labels put upon them by depression and abuse. Some of us who once dreamed about Prince Charming may not feel that way now. We are trapped in the ashes of Cinderella.
Or maybe we are Sleeping Beauties, about to waken after all this time with a kiss of peace from the Lord to bring us around, to see in us what He does, the true beauty He put there Himself as we came to know Him. We walked an aisle once when we fell in love with Him, did we not?
We are the beloved and He has given us sleep, Psalm 127:2 says, He knew we were up too early and on the go and staying up too late, and now by His grace He has given us rest, a chance to dream and to heal. And He will wake us soon. Let the sleeping bride rest, she may move mountains when she wakes or the beloved may be moving them for her.
No longer oppressed by the wicked steps, or just relatives or people in general. He is waiting to be a knight in shining armor. We have all been damsels in distress, afraid to love or be loved, afraid of being hurt again. We, like eve before us have all be deceived by an enemy, we have all deceived ourselves by not thinking the right way about ourselves and life and others.
Perhaps, we let our joy be stolen, compromised to much we believed in or were led astray. It could be that we were beaten and bruised literally or figuratively, or suffer a long time with pain or grief, deep hurts or sorrows that no one knew, the Lord knew.
And He promises beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, and more, that He may be glorified in us. He wants to perfect and protect His love in us. He writes better love stories, and He wants us to live happily ever after. This will be a true royal wedding, with angels instead of guards and chariots instead of a carriage. As a blissful and peaceful, and even faithful bride of Christ we will live happily ever after. Rebecca Jones
