He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not...

"He loves me, he loves me not...he loves me, he loves me not..he loves me.."

Human love can keep you guessing. At least, in its beginning stages. How many nervous young ladies have plucked at a flower's petals or counted an apple's seeds, desperate to find out whether their "beloved" returns their affections?

I remember reading a book as a child in which one of the characters plays the "He Loves Me" game for fun. I thought it was quite a silly idea~~being at the age where boys were playmates and not subjects for romantic feelings~~but nevertheless, I determined to try it. With no one specific in mind, I skipped out of doors and pulled a daisy from the garden, then proceeded to pluck its petals one by one, mimicking the lines I had read:

 "He loves me, he loves me not..."

Much to my dismay, by the last petal it was determined that whoever "he" might be, I was unfortunatley unloved. Not to be disappointed, I took up another daisy and went at it again.

"He loves me, he loves me not..."

Ah! With some triumph, I plucked the last petal as the words, "He loves me" were spoken. This time, I was satisfied. Feeling assured that I was destined for a happily-ever-after future, I returned to my book.


..Have you ever been unsure of someone's love? Was there a time when you have wished for a flower to determine where their affections lay? Perhaps it wasn't 'romantically' as of yet...but, nonetheless, love had you confused. Unsure. Ready to pluck at a petal to just be assured of something--anything!

The world likes to twist up the definition of 'love' to make it look either cheap, fairy-tale-perfect...though even this is quite capable of slipping away at the mere stroke of midnight. This, my friends, is human love, and what is expected of it.

Aren't you glad that as sons and daughters of our King, we can fully expect to not be left in bewilderment when it comes to His love, or any other that He may have in our present and future? We don't have to 'pluck petals' with God. It isn't,

"He Loves me, He loves me not.."

..with our Lord. It is simply,

"He loves me, He loves me, He loves me..."

..on and on, forever and ever.

  6. Beautiful post, dear! =) It made me think so hard.. and truly thank God for supplying a love that no one can replace. There truly is a separation between the love of God and the love of man. While the love of a man, can be filled with conflict, lust, temptations, etc. The love of God is only pure, righteous, beautiful, never ending, holy LOVE. It's amazing.

    Thanks for posting! God Bless,
