never been jilted

Romance fiction writers like the jilted theme.
Romance fiction readers like the jilted theme.
It feels kinda' good to sob your way through someone else's misery.
We're incredulous and horrified that a woman would be jilted,
especially at the altar.


The jilted lover learns that
weeping and begging won't bring their loved one back.
They're gone forever.

The man who jilted her leaves her powerless.
During her journey to find strength within herself,
 she stumbles and falls until she
 puts together enough pieces of her heart
 to go on with life.

With the Lord,
it's the other way around.

He find us when we're powerless.
Romans 5:8

 But God shows His own love to us,
  while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

He provides the strength we need when broken.
2 Corinthians 12:9

And He said,
“My grace is sufficient for you,
for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”


He never leaves us.
Hebrews 13:5
“I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
He doesn't leave us at our lowest point,
that's when he hovers
 nearer and
 nearer and
nearer.


Even when we're unfaithful,
our righteously jealous God
is still faithful.
*
He never stops loving us.
*

Think about that.
We've heard this since we were young,

"Jesus loves me,
this I know,
for the Bible,
tells me so."

just for a moment,
really bask in that.

This is the only part of the poem we need to quote....

He loves me...
He loves me...
He loves me...
*
Nobody will be able to watch our life stories
and sob over our heartache,
hoping and praying we'll find strength to carry on.
If we know Him as our Savior,
we'll always be able to claim we've


"never been jilted."
