IS MY LOVE NOT ENOUGH?

This Summer while I was on stage leading worship I had a massive breakdown because after months of complaining to God about being single, lonely etc. God whispered to me “Is my love not enough for you?” and it literally shattered my heart. I began to weep uncontrollably and had to leave stage immediately after we were done because I was a mess. It was in that moment I realized God’s love was taking 2nd place in my life. His love was becoming my last resort. Whenever I was running on empty and couldn’t find validation anywhere else THEN I would run to God because I knew he loved me. I was taking advantage of his love and only recognizing it when I needed it, instead of treasuring it like the precious gift that it is. I was searching for my identity in other people instead of the one who created me. The GOD OF THE UNIVERSE loves ME and somehow I don’t find that enough?
This is a very obvious statement but not one person on this earth will be able to meet the expectations you and I have of love. People will fail us and we will fail people. The way in which we experience perfect love is through Jesus Christ alone. You will only be complete and at peace when you rest in the love of Christ rather than the love of man. Stop searching, stop striving because you will never truly find what you’re looking for if it's not through him.
Whether you are single, dating, or married. If all you had was the love of Christ would it still be enough for you?

You are not overlooked. You are not alone. You are not forgotten. You are so so loved by your Father, and that IS enough.
