I have a confession to make...I cheated on the love of my life. Yesterday was Valentine's Day and I felt so distant from the man who I committed my life to, all because I cheated on him. I felt so lonely yesterday even though he was right there with me. I watched as other couples enjoyed their day sharing their love for one another, yet I did not have that same experience.
Why did I give someone else the time that I was supposed to dedicate to him? Why did I allow myself to forget his needs and his feelings? Why? Because I was selfish.
I worried too much about myself and what I needed that I failed to acknowledge him.
I allowed others to take his place in my life, leaving him to the curb.
I cheated him of my love, my time, my commitment...my all. He deserves it, but I neglected him.
In no way am I perfect, but I should've made more of an effort to please my love. He treats me like a princess, spoiling me everyday. He showers me with love, gifts, and anything else that I may need. He protects me and comforts me in a way that no one has ever been able to do before. He's so wise, so humble, so immaculate. None of my ex "situations" can compare to the man I have today. My favorite thing about him is that he has a heart of gold. He forgives me even when I do not deserve it...like now. Even though I've cheated on him, he hasn't let me go. I'm not saying that proudly, but just to express how good of a man he is.
I want to say to my man, I am sorry. I am sorry that I let myself stray away from your love. I am sorry that I deprived you of the things that you deserve. You've been too good to me for me to have treated you this way. Being that I am human, I will slip up again. However, I know that you won't let me fall if I just trust in you. I want you and only you.
You may be wondering why I am so in love with this guy and why he means so much to me. When you have a man like God, it is impossible for you not to feel this way!
Let's face it, we have all cheated God of what He deserves many times in our lives. Neglecting God is so easy to do, but confessing this can be difficult. The great thing is, He is a forgiving God, BUT we should not take His forgiveness for granted. We should not take His grace and mercy lightly whatsoever. Admit to God that you haven't given Him your all, ask for forgiveness, and commit to doing better in the future. We are not perfect, but we must give God our very best.
If God is bae, make a decision today to love Him better! #StopCheating2016 :)
How can you structure your day to give God more of your time?
