His heart skipped a beat and the palpitations were nearly audible. The young man’s excitement rose as he finally started to understand. This was true love. Not the sort of love that was based on imagination. Not the sort of love that was filled with infatuation. This was special. This was unreal. This was exciting. This was the start of a whole new adventure. This was a “for lifetime” love encounter.
And I know that this was the sort of awareness that many people have when they meet their first real love, but I want you to know that that sort of love paled into insignificance the day I first realised the depth of God’s love for me.
