Come here. I have a secret to tell you. Yes, it’s something you’ll like. Are you ready? Okay, here goes… I know someone who likes you. Actually, he loves you. Well, to tell you the truth, he’s crazy about you. How crazy? He loves you so much that he would do anything to get close to you. Forget about buying you flowers, he would go as far as to actually make flowers for you. He would never hurt you either. It would never enter his mind. In fact, he would even paint the sky all kinds of colors just to let you know he would never do you any harm.
He told me he would do things for you that no one else has ever done for you. He won’t just sit and watch a sun rise with you; he will make the sun rise for you. Have you ever laid on your back in an open space and gazed at the stars? Guess what… He made each and every one of those stars for your enjoyment. Yes, He did that for you.
Wait! There’s more…
Do you remember that time last week that you were feeling worthless? He knew about that, and he was hoping you’d come to him so that he could let you know that in his eyes you are special. Yes, you heard me correctly. He thinks you are special. Well, actually, it goes beyond that, you see he doesn’t just think you’re special. He knows you are special. He created you, and it was confirmed long ago that you were the most treasured of his creations. The skies and the fields are nothing compared to you. Your beauty drowns out the creatures of the sea, and it shines brighter to him than those on the land. Your stunning completeness soars far above the birds of the air, and all the treasures of the earth are nothing compared to the way he treasures you. To him, you are everything.
He even said you were the most important thing to him. He said that you were his reason for living. You are, you know. He wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for the fact that he loves you so much. A lot of people don’t like the idea that he loves you so much. In fact, a while back, they got jealous because he cared about you so much. And do you know what he did for you? Well, he always said he would die for you. They killed him. He gave up his life for you. Don’t feel bad though, because that is exactly what he had always wanted to do. It was the ultimate act of love and the best way he could show you his feelings for you.
Hold your head up. Let me finish telling you this wonderful secret. He loves you so much that he — Listen carefully, because this is the good part — He is so wild about you that he knew you couldn’t live without him so he fought death… and won. Three days after he died for you, he came back, just for you. He loves you so much that spikes couldn’t hold him to a cross, and death could not keep him in the grave. His love for you is what kept him going and kept him doing everything he had to do. He returned from the grave so that he could be with you forever.
He is with you now, standing right beside you always. Anytime you need him, just reach out. He is but a simple prayer away. See, he is so fond of you that he would never leave you. He’s there for you at this moment, he knows everything about you, and he knows all the pain, all the emptiness, and all the longing you have felt. He understands it because he has felt that way before. He will be there to warm you when people are cold. He will be the gentle word of love when life is harsh. He is a shelter through the storm, and a shield in that battle you’re struggling with. He is a true friend, and he is tender and affectionate toward you. That’s the secret, that God is crazy about you. Go now, and share the secret with others. Everything he is for you, he can be to them. It’s a shame that everyone can’t know this secret. Aren’t you glad you do?
