"He's A Keeper!"
I remember as a teenager and as a young adult I would hear people refer to someone they thought was good for someone else as a 'keeper'. I always wondered what a 'keeper' looked like. Now, looking back I have figured this whole thing out by trial and mainly error!!! A 'keeper' is by lose definition someone that you would keep around because they are a good addition to your life. Not even just for looking for a date or a marriage partner, there are people that we allow in that are not 'keepers'. Maybe they are there just for a moment in your life to show you something deeper. Either way, letting go of people that are not 'keepers' can be easier said than done. I think that mentally we get hooked to the idea of the person being there for us for better or for worse whether they are good for us in better or worse. You know what I mean? So as I move forward God has showed me a 'Keeper'. He is my 'Keeper' and once He brings the earthly one in my life that my dad and mom also say "He's a keeper!" I will hold onto the fact that there is a way to know whether someone is a 'keeper' or not.
When God was wooing me back into His loving arms a song played on Klove radio. And the gist of this song is Ps 19:14, "Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in thy sight o Lord, my strength and my redeemer." It talks about doing EVERYTHING to the glory of God, even what we consider the mundane (aghhh! like my job) haha And it was sticking with me that the part of me I was not sharing with God was not being able to be done to His glory. My meditations and the words of my mouth, I could not see as acceptable to my redeemer. So here I am... Lonely physically but yet not so lonely. I have a Keeper! And to spin the word differently now, He also KEEPS me. He does not just love me. He loves you. Whoever you are, where ever you have been. Whatever you have done and where you are RIGHT NOW. He loves you. He is a Keeper and He can show you who the 'keepers' in your life should be.
