>Posted by a friend of mine on Facebook today. This is what I am looking for. This is what I thought I had.
Intimacy is the defining point of when God says “one flesh” and to “cleave” to one another. The physical intimacy is something anyone can give, it is simply the union of the body. It is the union of the spirit that true intimacy gives.The knowledge of each other and desiring to not just be a part, but a whole, complete in that knowledge.
Where the responses are instant and deep, true and honest, transparent and clear, where the joy is complete in one to the other.
That when they enter the room a light shines in your soul.
You long for their touch, to hear their voice, to find comfort in their nearness and oneness in their presence. To be filled with an ecstacy that transcends the physical, to place of oneness that can not be described — but only felt. Where the laughter is often, and the tears few. Where each mile together is a journey of joy, and truly you are only a single sojourner together, inseparable, one. When you look into each others eyes you see the brilliance and fire of who they are, and are humbled that they have chosen you to share life with, to share those secret places together, and become part of the melody of their hearts.
You become each others song.
The physical becomes a unity of pleasure, not in and of the act, but in and of the lack of boundaries, of overcoming the separation ,and coming together in a harmony of joy that sex is just an empty shadow of in comparison. Where the act of just “being” is so intensely sweet, that it can only be held for a moment in time, but an eternity in memory. The two become one, fused in a bond of love that reaches the throne of heaven.
When you have true intimacy you have found a treasure beyond hope, a gift beyond price, and joy beyond what the heart can hold.
In that, never let go….
Thank you Jonathan Payne, those are beautiful words.
God is faithful, He has plans for me, maybe not the ones I believed He had for me but good plans nonetheless. Plans that don’t involve a man who doesn’t have the balls to call me up and say, “I’m breaking up with you because…” Plans that don’t involve a man too afraid to be my friend even after the romance is over. Plans that involve a true Christian man. Plans that do involve a man with a spine. Plans to prosper and not harm me. I can’t wait to find out what those plans are.
