Loving You Like Crazy…

on January 29, 2015


It’s weird…. The whole thing called love. For Funke it came like a mighty wind and blew her off her feet; leaving her breathless and trying to hold on to what she could.

Funke didn’t know so much about it. She had just started university and was still trying to cope with school, work and making new friends. Shyness was more of her thing… so the whole process was difficult for her… till she met Femi. His name was practically begging her to love him in addition to his handsome look and sexy voice. And so she did love him, she loved him hard and un- relentlessly! She loved him with as much passion as he did her.

It was like walking on the clouds and not looking down, if one fell or not. But one thing about being in the clouds, as Funke later came to realize, was that sooner or later you would have to come back down; it could be a sudden rapid descent or a gradual gentle one. For Funke it had been the former. She discovered he wasn’t the one. She had poured her heart out to the wrong man and had it broken into pieces. The tears were unstoppable, the pain unbearable. Her friends tried their best to console her, but how could they wipe out three years of love for a man? With just a year left to graduate, she had thought that she would finally get the opportunity to introduce the man of her dreams to her family… That wasn’t going to happen any more.
She had no one else to confide in but in God; resting in His love was the best thing, surrendering her heart to him for keeps and asking Him to pour in her heart love for the right person at the right time. And at that moment, His peace filled her heart … and love for Him consumed her…            
     No one loves you like God loves you…
As she held on to her pillow while lying on her bed, she realised God was more important. She had spent time seeking comfort in God’s word. She had mused over God’s love for her and how much he loved her to send his son showed how ‘crazy’ he was about her. Gradually, she had seen things she hadn’t come to notice during her relationship with Femi. Funke had been so crazily in love with Femi that she had practically idolized him; worshipping the very place he walked.

Funke shifted to lie on her back and rested her head on the pillow. She had left her First Love, now realizing His love was more sincere than anything she had ever known and no one else could ever love her as much as Him; they just couldn’t! They couldn’t love her crazy like God did. She smiled. And if at all anything failed in life, His love for her wouldn’t. If anyone else walked away from her, He would never do that. If anyone else couldn’t accept her love, He was always ready to take it. And if anyone didn’t like her for who she was . . . He already loved her before she had been born . . .
She whispered the words ‘I love you Lord’ and closed her eyes as she drifted off to sleep…
