He Calls Me Beloved

"What is heartbreak? It’s when you thought you had forever on the clock, and the other person decided to stop time. It’s everything, and then nothing, a cold hand, and silence on the other end of the phone. Wanting to say good morning, but instead, having to greet the day, and everyday, with no one around. It’s the knot in the back of your throat, the warmth and stickiness that a tear leaves on your cheek; but in the end, it’s growth, and weakness learning to be strong."

"When a man and a woman love each other, that thing between them, that bond that doesn’t let them walk away, that’s God. He’s the third part, uniting them, drawing them to one another even when they’d rather cut and run … That’s why we can hurt one another so badly and then forgive and love again, because God’s changed all the rules and redefined the parameters - it’s His way of doing things. That’s what marriage is - it’s showing the world how God loves. It’s public and accountable but it’s also passionate and private. It’s that third thing that knits us all together, that makes sacrifice simple and heroism the new normal. It’s Him that makes a you and a me into an us. That’s why nothing else in the world is like it. That’s why it feels so powerful and so beautiful and so terrifying, because it’s Him."
