How long can love wait for?

A few years ago, I met a fellow student whom I will call Lizzy for privacy reasons who told me that she was waiting for a boyfriend who had gone to Spain with the promise of coming back for her. Many months had passed, almost a year, and she felt very anxious, she said that she did not want to grow old waiting without knowing if he would come back to look for her, she had decided to keep the same phone number so as not to lose contact with him. They had spoken on the phone a few times since he started his trip, and the signal was not very good so they could barely hear each other. In the midst of this difficult situation in which Lizzy did not have the freedom to talk to her loved one or hear his voice, she met other guys who were interested in dating her. Being a very attractive young woman of about 18-19 years of age, it was to be expected that more than one guy would want to approach her and meet her. One day she met a handsome young man who she liked very much and decided to give herself a chance, for many months she had not received any call from that love whom she did not forget and had waited for almost two years. Time continued to pass between daily jobs, going to university, and walking through life with this new crush and Lizzy changed her phone number, thus closing off any present or future possibility of seeing that love again at the distance that had taken a long time to keep his promise and she was not willing to wait for him anymore.

This story that I can say that I lived closely and had such a sad ending, makes me feel very lucky that someone who loved me and whom I left waiting on a trip I went on, did not give up and waited for me for more than 20 years. When I came back, I was no longer the same girl that had left, I no longer kept my innocent face, my voice had changed, it was sharper, my personality and my character had become solid and imposing, I had many debts and fines to pay because I had disobeyed many laws of that country, my life was in danger, enemies persecuted me, I did not believe in anyone. One Sunday night I went back to look for him at the same place where one day I left him waiting for me and he received me smiling and full of love, he did not ask questions, he didn’t speak any accusations. He just hugged me for a long time as if replacing each hug that life and distance had robbed from us. He was still the same, it seemed that time had not passed for him, I had never felt more loved and happier than that night when I found him again. He went to court to pay every one of my debts, fines, and violations. He pleaded for me to be forgiven, and for the first time I was a free woman. My enemies had to step back when they realized that I was no longer alone. Since then, there have been many storms and adverse circumstances, as well as sweet moments, countless springs, and all seasons in between. We have lived together without being separated for a single moment. My beloved who waited for me of who I am, and with whom I am until today is called Jesus Christ the Son of God. If you come to him, you can also be loved, embraced, and forgiven.

“However, those the Father has given me will come to me, and I will never reject them”. Jesus in his own words on John 6:37.

If you wish to know Jesus say this prayer with me:

Heavenly Father, I ask your forgiveness for my sins, I repent with all my heart, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that he died for my sins and rose on the third day, and I ask that you receive me as your child and make me free from the fear of Death, and embrace your promise of life and eternal salvation for my whole being in you, because you love me and accept me and my value and my life come from you and from the price you paid for me on the cross . Make me a new creature and fill my life with you and your love, in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
