was around 6 p.m. on a sunny autumn day in early October.
As I was driving down the long, steep road at WPCB-TV, where
I worked, I wished I were heading home. The way the sun
was shining almost made my heart ache it was so beautiful.
Single as I was, how I wished I had a boyfriend to share
it with. But I was just taking my co-worker and friend,
Penny, to the bottom of the hill to meet her husband who
was late for an appointment. I had to return to work for
four more hours.
As soon as we got to the bottom,
Keith was just pulling up. Penny hopped in their car and
drove off. I proceeded to back up my car in the narrow area
to turn around and head back to the TV station. I underestimated
the drop-off at the edge of the road and felt my rear tires
sink down into the ditch beside the road.
I got out of my car and considered
my predicament. Lifting up my eyes to heaven, I asked for
help. Unexpectedly, I sensed this strong impression in my
heart: "David will always be faithful to you."
“David”, I said
to myself, "What a time to be thinking about him. I
have enough problems right now, and certainly didn’t
need any more." You see, all we had done over the last
2 ½ years was clash at work.
Wondering what this strong
impression within me meant, I looked up just then and saw
a company van coming down the hill towards me. Help at last!
It stopped. The door opened. And to my great surprise, would
you believe it was David. After teasing me, “These
women drivers... where’s your AAA card?”, he
and another man who seemed to appear out of nowhere, lifted
up the back of my small yellow Toyota and got my car out
of the ditch.
I was so overjoyed to be rescued
from my situation that I impulsively put my arms around
David and gave him a great big kiss on the cheek! We had
not so much as given each other a friendly hug to this point.
David just stood there, surprised.
I asked him, “Do you
want another kiss?” To my amazement he said, “Yes.”
So I did; I gave him another kiss on the cheek. From that
very hour, David’s eyes began to be opened toward
me. It was as if scales fell from them. Suddenly, he began
to see me in a whole new light…
The perfect matchmaker had
begun his amazing work. There’s so much more of the
story that I want to share with you. But before I do, I’d
like to introduce you to this wonderful matchmaker who ended
my loneliness and years of dissatisfaction with my life.
is this perfect matchmaker that I’m talking about?
God is the Perfect Matchmaker!
“How is God a matchmaker?”
you may ask.
Well, a “matchmaker”
is a special someone who strikes the match that sparks a
relationship of true love. God is the Perfect Matchmaker
because God is perfect love! He ignites true love in the
hearts of a man and a woman for each other, and He leads
them into a compatible marriage relationship.
there’s something even more important that I want
to share with you about Him. And it’s this: God’s
perfect love brings imperfect people together with Himself
through His perfect Son, Jesus Christ. I know this is true
because even before I met David, He changed my life forever.
I know God would like to do this for you, too. God, the
Father, offers to match you in a loving relationship with
His Son. Now there’s a perfect match!
are some reasons why you should take God up on His offer
even before you go looking for a soul mate.
First, you’ll discover
that this personal, spiritual relationship with God contains
many of the same reciprocal elements as a human relationship:
intimacy, expressions of love two-way communication, inner
fulfillment and purpose, a sense of completeness, and much
in any strong relationship, two lovers commit themselves
fully to each other. God has promised to commit Himself
to you - if you commit yourself to Him. God will then provide
for your every spiritual, emotional, and physical need –
those things that a human being could not even begin to
meet in your life.
you can be absolutely sure of this: He will never fail you,
desert you, or reject you –EVER! Jesus will give you
true, faithful, and unconditional love through the bad and
good times, causing all things to work together with your
very best in mind. He is that special Lover you’ve
always been searching for. His love for you is so great
that He died for your sins so that you could be with Him
Does all of this sound too
good to be true? I can tell you that I’ve experienced
this awesome relationship and love for myself. This is why
I want so much to share these fantastic truths with you.
You can start this relationship with Jesus Christ and find
true love right now! Today is your day to meet your Perfect
