Love, God

I started reading a book tonight called "When God Writes Your Love Story" and it is absolutely AMAZING.  It doesnt matter if you have recently started a relationship or if you have been in one for a long time, this book will appeal to you.  Even after only getting through the first chapter, it seems like this book has been written completely for me. Here is a little excerpt from the book, which when I read it, it gave me goosebumps.
As I lay on my bed pondering these thoughts, I found myself inwardly forming a desperate prayer.
"God, where are You in this?" my heart cried.  "I am Your child.  All my life, You know I have longed for something beautiful.  I have searched for true love.  Does a pure and perfect romance even exist in this dark world of lust and perversion and sin?  Should I even dare to dream of something beyond the shallow, meaningless, cheap version of love I've known so far?"
Then came a soft, gentle tugging upon my heart.  Suddenly I somehow knew that my life did not need to be this way and that God had something better for me.  It was almost as if God Himself was reminding me, I am the Author of true love; I am the Creator of romance.
A quiet challenge deeply touched my spirit in that moment.  It was as if God was tenderly standing before me, with tears of boundless love in His eyes, whispering to my heart, You have searched for true love in your own way.  But, My ways are not your ways.  I want to script a beautiful tale just for you, but first you must trust Me with the pen of this precious area of your life.  Will you let Me write your love story?
It's amazing how someone can completely walk into your life without warning and completely change your outlook on life and the things that come with it.  Fortunately, I am going to let God write what I hope will one day become my own love story.
