You are searching. You are craving. You are in want.
Where is this "One" they speak of? Where is this "One" in which we find so much hope in, acceptance in, full love in? And will they really be able to fill all the cravings and searches?
Child... You ask these questions, you ponder who "the One" is, who your soul is aching for... and here I am. Here I have always been and always will be.
Child, I am the One.
I am the One your soul searches the depths for. I am the One in whom your hope is found. I am the One who will give you the fullness of abundant, overwhelming, perfect love... because I AM love.
I see you searching for yourself in lovers of this earth and I see you cry those tears in bed at night as you wrap your arms around yourself and try to fall asleep. And I am there. I catch every single one of those tears and I wrap my arms around you and I never leave an empty space between our souls.
I am the One, love.
Though you don't always see me in the moment, though you are often blind to my presence, I am still there, your constant, unconditional Lover. I don't run when you offend, I don't make a dash into fury when you repeatedly ignore me or reject me altogether, no, I stay present, I remain faithful still.
I am the One you are searching for.
I am the only One in whom you can search for yourself in and find out who you actually are. You can run to the people of this world, look for assurance of your identity in them, look for your value in them, look for the love you crave in them... but you will always come up short. They will never fill that void that only I can fill.
So if you are searching today, dear one, here I am to tell you that I am, in fact, the One. Draw near, I am here, now, in your every moment.
"I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself." Jeremiah 31:3
