This life is not about finding someone who will want you, it’s about finding a God who desires you above all else.

It’s so easy to admire a candle when we have never seen the sun, so it is when it comes to longing another person more than we long for Christ.

The love we find in others is simply the shadow of the love we find in Christ, because when we shift our goals and hopes to Christ; we bring more value and meaning to those around us.

"She was afraid of these things that made her suddenly wonder who she was, and what she was going to be in the world, and why she was standing at that minute, seeing a light, or listening, or staring up into the sky: alone."

There is something profoundly beautiful about coming along side someone and joining in their journey, being willing enough to say “I love you, that is why I want to share this path with you; for better or for worse.” and that doesn’t have to be in marriage, I think friendship is a lot like this. We find people we enjoy, learn to love them as they are and then we just do life together.

Once strangers; now partners in a new voyage that neither really know where it will leave. Christ does this, we are introduced to this Man, but as we learn about Him we start to see that we too want to walk this road with Him, to Him, and for Him. Never realizing that our path was never really that far from Him in the first place, He was always there, in one way or another; He was always wanting us to join Him.

Never take for granted the beauty of sharing a journey with someone, and never lose sight of the promise of the faithfulness that God has when it comes to walking alongside you.

"Y lo escogí a usted, Si a usted, porque me di cuenta de que encontró mi punto débil y fue el único que descubrió la forma para calmar esta alma indomable, Lo escogí porque me di cuenta de que valía la pena, valía los riesgos… valía la vida…"
