Always My First Love


I love flowers. I always have. I could count the number of times that I have received flowers on one hand. In 19 ½ years I have never received flowers from a guy.

I look forward to the day that a nice Christian man asks me out on a date and shows up at the front door with flowers. {I really could care less that they cost less than $5.00. Actually I would probably jump up in delight if they did because I can’t see spending $20.00 for something that I can get for under $10.00, and they last about the same amount of time anyway. ;)}

The thing that I remembered today is that God loves me infinitely more than my future husband ever will. God made me and therefore knows me better than I know myself. He knows how many hairs are on my head (see Luke 12:7). He loves me enough to die for me. He took my place on the cross when He didn’t deserve it. He created the flowers that I love looking at. Everything on this earth is designed to bring Him glory. To turn our thoughts back to Him. He is the thing that we ultimately long for in this life and NOTHING BUT JESUS CAN SATISFY THAT NEED.

Sometimes I need to remind myself the He will always be my first love.

Until next time,

Bailey Sue
