"...It's incredibly foolish and courageous to believe that there is someone out there
created for you and only you. I guess that makes me a courageous fool. I have seen
people in love, in a love that is so amazingly spectacular you know it's from God.
That's what I want. I believe with every breath in me that God is a hopeless
romantic. All he asks is that we wait on his timing, and if we do, he'll rip our
lives apart with love from every angle. A love much bigger, stronger, greater than
anything we could have asked for. Granted, taking such a leap of faith is easier
said than done, but I refuse to settle for a relationship built on lust which
arrogantly calls itself love. God knows all of me, he knows what I long for and what
makes my heart smile. He is the one who gave my heart it's yearnings and desires.
How awful would it be of me to believe that he's incapable of giving me someone who
is not only all I've ever dreamt of, but more. Letting your hopes settle on anything
less than a match made in heaven only serves to cripple God. I trust that whoever it
is that God has in mind for me is wildly better than who I could find for myself.
There is such a difference between loving someone and being in love with them, and I
think people marry someone they love but aren't in love with out of fear. Fear of
ending up alone, fear of never feeling loved, fear of never finding anyone
better.... How that must make God's heart ache... "

"It's incredibly foolish and courageous to believe that there is someone out there
created for you and only you." by far my favorite line. -stephen

I agree with them completely. It's not logical. But it's Truth :)
