Patience is a virtue

Any normal person must think that this type of thinking is folly. I do as well at times. But I never was one for the dating game, going over to a nightclub and picking up women. It seems too much like Russian roulette, you know? When we first heard Dave read this poem at guys night, we were all speechless. It just hit home.

Be Satisfied With Me
Everyone longs to give themselves completely to someone, to have a deep soul relationship with another, to be loved thoroughly and exclusively.

But to a Christian, God says, "No, not until you are satisfied, fulfilled, and content with being loved by Me alone, with giving yourself totally and unreservedly to me, with having an intensely personal and unique relationship with Me alone.

Only by discovering that only in Me is your satisfaction to be found will you be capable of taking part in the perfect human relationship that I have planned for you.

You will never be united to another until you are united with Me, apart from anyone or anything else; disregarding any other desires or longings. I want you to stop planning, stop wishing, and allow Me to give you the most thrilling plan that you cannot imagine. I want you to have the best!

Please allow Me to bring it to you. You just keep watching Me, expecting the greatest thing.

Keep experiencing the Satisfaction that I am.

Keep listening and learning the things that I tell you.

Just wait, that's all.

Don't be anxious. Don't worry. Don't look around at the things others have gotten, or that I have given to them.

Don't look around at the things you think you want.

Just keep fully concentrating on Me, or you'll miss what I want to show you. And then, when you are ready, I will surprise you with a love far more wonderful than you would ever dream!

You see, until you are ready--and the one I have for you is ready, you will not fully be able to grasp the perfection of My plan. Even now I am working to have you both ready at the same time. Until that point,--until you are both satisfied exclusively with Me and the life that I have prepared for you, you won't be able to experience the love that exemplifies your relationship with Me. And this is perfect love.

And, dear one, I want you to have this most wonderful love. I want you to see in the flesh a picture of your relationship with Me; to enjoy materially and concretely the everlasting union of beauty, perfection, and love that I offer you with Myself.

Know that I love you utterly.

For I am God. Believe it, and be satisfied."
