Peter was a young man in high school, 16 of age to be specific. One
day after school, he found himself walking the hour’s journey back to
his village with a close friend, Mildred. They walked almost quietly,
but being close, it was not a strange day at all, all was usual, just
like any other day. About half-way into the bushes, along the
maneuvers of the footpath, Mil had a natural distraction and requested
to be excused to go and answer nature’s call. Jokingly, Peter
requested to accompany her. Jokingly, Mil granted the request, and so
they ‘jokingly’ walked into the bushes. Whatever went on there, none
of them was prepared; none of them was fully aware… none of them was
ready. But all the same, a piece of Peter’s heart went with Mil… for
the two shall become one flesh!
Some years passed. Peter was very devastated by that experience. He was
depressed and loathed the opposite sex. He was in college. There he
met Juliet. She was cute and pleasant to be with. But Peter was not in a
position to think beyond the ordinary. One day, they were working out
an assignment together. Whatever happened, none of them was prepared;
none of them fully aware, none of them was ready. But it happened, and
a good piece of Peter’s heart went off with Julie… for the two shall
become one flesh!
After college, Peter found a very good job and settled quite quickly.
He was a cooked man, with no confidence in the opposite sex anymore,
self-hate was at hand, low esteem was his daily bread and all. His job
was not an answer to the missing pieces of his heart, no, not at all.
He went for work smiling outside, while rotting inside. He ran into
Grace with the going of time. He never had a thought of ever falling
in love. He had washed his nets. But sooner than later, he found
himself locked in after work, reflecting. “Am I in love, is it
possible?” He found himself wondering. “but how do I tell her… what do
I tell her?” He was in a very common ground, the valley of decisions it
is called. “I know what I will do: I will call her up, and tell her
that I love her will my WHOLE heart! No, wait; I probably don’t have
it. I will simply say: I LOVE YOU WITH MY BROKEN HEART, IT’S ALL I’VE
GOT LEFT WITH ME.”
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
