As I was traveling to Orlando, the Kissamee sign caught my eye. It reminded me of my first proposal…the time my high school sweetheart proposed to me. In my spirit I heard, first love. He reminded me of how I reacted to my first engagement. I was ashamed because at that time, I was still toying with thoughts of being in a relationship with two other guys. I didn’t want to wear my engagement ring because I wasn’t “sold out” or “all in”.
I wept as I envisioned Jesus proposing to His bride…the church…and could only imagine how He felt as He is trying to woe us (His Bride) back to Himself..I knew right away this is still how we act when we hold onto our false sense of security, our idols, anything that isn’t Him. Oh if His Bride would go back to communion and return to our First Love, amen?
