Revitalizing My First Love
I'll admit it, I walked away and I shouldn't have. Many people have walked away from their first love and later regretted it. Some people go back while others completely forget about their first love.
There's been a longing and aching that had been pulling me back. He called my name and waited for me. He made a way for me to come back to him.
But I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first. - Revelations 2:4
I still believed in God, still prayed, went to church, read my bible, but I didn't put God first. I was putting my sins first. God called out to me and asked me to put him first again. So, I ran back to him. I regret abandoning him and not putting him first.
We have all abandoned our first love, Jesus Christ! We need to place our first love first again. We need to run back to him, he's waiting, and he's still in love with us. When we walk away, his love fights for us. He tears down walls and moves mountains for us.
I love God with everything in me. I want to do what he wants me to do. I want to be where God wants me to be. I never want to abandon God again because he never abandoned me. And God will never abandon you.
And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. - Mark 12:30
God shows us an unconditional, forgiving, merciful, and graceful love. The least we can do is love him back with all our heart, soul, mind and strength.
Although we may not go back to our first boyfriend/girlfriend, we should turn back and go to our first love, the one who created us, Jesus Christ. He loves us more than anyone on this earth could. Don't forget about your first love. It's not too late to go back. He's reaching out for you. Will you reach out for him?
