Have you ever wondered why women are so relational?
It is because they are made in the image of God, the Holy Trinity, who is the very definition of relationship.
Generally speaking, she is the one who keeps in touch with friends and family. She knows what is going on in their lives, not out of curiosity -or maybe a bit, but mostly because God has made her that way.
And personally, I think it’s a good thing. A woman brings life to relationships. She often initiates relationships and when a friendship is established, she invests and puts a lot of effort in them also. Inviting people over for coffee, lunch or diner. Doing the groceries for them, cleaning the house before anyone arrives and making the home cosy are all on her mind. Overall she is life bringing in relationships. And to then receive a compliment for all her efforts, speaks deep into her heart, especially when they are enjoying the meal she prepared for them.
I think the best moments I have had in my life, were mostly shared with friends around the diner table, or social gatherings with food and pleasant companionship. O, the laughter and joy in sharing these moments with one another.
We long for friendships and intimacy just like God and the Trinity does. God longs to have friendship with us. First we start out as clay (Jeremiah 18:6) in the hand of the potter and after a while we become the sheep who are able to listen to the voice of our shepherd (John 10:3). But our relationship intensifies and God calls us His friends (John 15:14), His intimate allies. But the best part is when we become His Bride (Revelation 21:9). And just like a bride who longs for her bridegroom, God longs for us to come closer to Him, to get to know Him for who He really is. And the beauty of this relationship is that it results in into loving Him even more.
This is what God most longs for, he wants our love. He is after our hearts. He wants to woo us back to Him because you are His beloved, the one He sacrificed His life for.
Have you ever gazed upon creation, a sunrise, the sunset, snow, autumn, waterfalls, mountains, the sea, the magnificence of an whale or dolphin?
They are all created for you by the One who loves you. To woo your heart back to Him.
He is the initiator of relationships, specifically between you and Him.
He is inviting you into His arms. You only need to say YES.
Trust Him, love Him. He is so worthy of your love.
