**Sweet Nothings**


Yesterday it was raining so hard early in the morning. I threw the white big door open and plunged into the misty rain. I half jogged and half walked to the bus stop, waited for a few minutes and saw the bus approaching. I hopped on. Silence. Time passed a little. Then a loud noise. The sounds of the trains approaching. I hopped off the bus and got on the subway. I was reflecting on how good I felt going to work, I had been searching for something like this, but alas my search was over! A shouting testimony! And this was only just the beginning. One day I will be telling the full story to the Nations...from a roof-top.

So back to the train. I opened my book and started flipping pages. In some quick seconds, my eyes began to twitch and flutter. Out of the corner of my left eye I saw them. They were standing with their bodies leaning against each other. And he was whispering what I call romantic "sweet nothings" into her ears. Sweet, sweet, nothings. But she was blushing so those words must really have been sweet. Lol.

He was the lover and she was his beloved. As usual, my mind flipped for a second towards my Lover. My Knight in shining armor, who is also incidentally the Uncreated Creator. I began to distinguish his love. You see, human beings can whisper lots of words, especially in the excitement of the moment. But God is not like that. Every word He speaks MUST surely be true and must come to pass. He has declared His love for us in so many ways. Only this time, they weren't sweet nothings...they were just really sweet! He's been known to say words like, "Behold I will allure [you], bring you into the wilderness, and comfort you (Hosea 2:14)." He also calls you the "apple of His eye," (Zechariah 2:8); He calls you "His bride" while He refers to Himself as "the Bridegroom." (Rev 19:6-8).

The lips of men are sometimes filled with romantic and beautiful sweet nothings, but God offers so much more. He told the woman at the well, "When you taste my water, you will never thirst again." Sometimes our physical bodies ache for the love of another human being. But as far as we remain human, we will always thirst for something more. Our bodies cannot be completely satisfied by the love of another human being. Yes, our other halves may mean what they're saying. But because of their flesh they will get weak sometimes in fulfilling those words. So what can bring pure satisfaction? Look towards the hills...

...For the LOVE of God can never fail...

Nice... Gods love is unconditional and everlasting.

"The lips of men are sometimes filled with romantic and beautiful sweet nothings, but God offers so much more." This is so true

Free-flowing Florida...lollll...I feel like jumping at what u just said...lolll...so happy for you!!! :)

Afrobabe...ha ha ha. On Valentine's day I think I made some hints about my current sweet-heart, not quite sure. I AM in love! But God still completely quenches the thirst...lolllll...(see, I can talk a lirrule abt such things, just not too much I guess...he he he...afrobabe the mischievious lady)

EfJay...lollllllll. He (my boo) also tells me really sweet things...does that count? :)

LG...enuff efizzyyy!!! I'm loaded with school work at the moment. And exams. And work. It is well...lol. How na?

Mimi.......my second booooooo...how are u doing? How's he *wink*? Did u know there's a song that says those exact words: "only You can SATISFY!" I think I had it playing on my blog not too long ago...beautiful, beautiful lyrics!

Okrika girl...I know right? It's not like we don't mean it. But it's fulfilling every word thats the difficulty!

In my own words...Amennnn. What u said in my last two posts also blessed me (I prob couldn't find the right words to reply...lol). May God bless you and may your relationship with Him truly BLOSSOM. You will be surprised at what God can do with your life...there's nothing too difficult for Him.

Jem said...

This was very refreshing.... u know, u can really trust God. we can literally stake our lives on His love and be rest assured that He will not fail unlike man ....

darkelcee said...

beatiful piece as usual.if only we can always remember his love.

sometimes i wish he can forcefully fill our heart and senses with the depth of his love.but He will never do that because he loves us soo much.

thanks dear.

Abbie said...

Thanks for visiting my page girlie.

Great inspirational post.

Olamild said...

Bless your heart

Nyemoni said...

His love never fails...why do we often forget? How are you Jaycee?

Simi Speaks said...

ok, one question. how did u become so grounded spiritually at such a young age. at 23, i dont know what i was thinking. But i tell u, it wasnt the Bible. lol..

seriously, i admire ur deep wisdom in God.

but just to satisfy my curiousity, tell me something bad, terrible u do/did/want to do/said! SUMTHING. hehehe

uNWrItten* said...

wow i was like JAYCEE found someone yay!
lol
i feel u tho..men are usually full of empty promises but GOD keeps all promises...:)

HUGS!
P.S I LOVE THE SONG ON HERE...!

Jaycee said...

Jem...Yes oooo...

Darkelcee...Yessss...He loves us too much for that! If he forced us to do anything, we would only be like a bunch of robots...

Abbie...u're welcome dearie...

Olamild...right back at you girlie!!!! How body dey naw?

Simi Speaks...I'm laughing soooo hardddd!!! Lolll. 23 is not as young as u make it seem, well...maybe "relatively." I think I heard the knock a lot of times, and I finally opened it. I've done some "bad" things too in my life now, like everyone else...lolll...I know u don't want to open my behind on blogger! But I prayed for forgiveness, and I've been received back as a prodigal child...never again! If you email me with a specific question, I can reveal my personal testimonies to you. I believe God allowed some trials to come my way so I can testify about them while shouting on a roof-top...:) Still wanna hear somn bad I've done before???

Unwritten...I found my other half last yr...lolllll!!!! But both of us are still human, and though our words are sweet to each other, they really can't compare to God's words to us. They are sweet nothings but God's words are "sweet everythings" *wink*

Jaycee said...

I'm still laughing hard at ur statement Simi...LOLLLLLL!!!!! U succeeded in cracking me up real bad!!! ROTFL!!!! My life is filled with crazy testimonies that will blow your mind sha..."saved by grace!"

Simi Speaks said...

0k, am off to email u NOW. all u did was increase my curiosity! dis one where u were saved by grace. ummmmmmm. sounds like a lot of saving.

ok, where is ur email on dis ur website sef?

3 MEN GO INTO A HOTEL.

THE MAN BEHIND THE DESK SAID THE ROOM IS $30

SO EACH MAN PAID $10 AND WENT TO THE ROOM.

A WHILE LATER THE MAN BEHIND THE DESK REALIZED THE ROOM WAS ONLY $25

SO HE SENT THE BELLBOY TO THE 3 GUYS' ROOM WITH $5.

ON THE WAY THE BELLBOY COULDN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO SPLIT $5 EVENLY BETWEEN 3
MEN,

SO HE GAVE EACH MAN A $1 AND KEPT THE OTHER $2 FOR HIMSELF.

THIS MEANT THAT THE 3 MEN EACH PAID $9 FOR THE ROOM, WHICH IS A TOTAL OF $27

ADD THE $2 THAT THE BELLBOY KEPT = $29.

WHERE IS THE OTHER DOLLAR?

Omosewa said...

Amen! God's love is unconditional, steadfast, never ceasing never faltering...

Lovely post. I have updated, i hope you're 1st, lol...

Jinta said...

ok. my heart has resumed it's regular beat. for a moment, i thought Jaycee was writing about erm....'secular' love

@ anonymous - that got me stumped for a minute, but the men paid $28, not the $27 mention ($25 + $3 returned to them), so $1 is NOT missing

Jaycee said...

Lolll...anonymous...Lai lai...I know this one...

The $27 is the total of $25 (which is with the guy behind the desk) and $2 with the bellboy.

The additional $3 is with the individual men in the hotel room.

There you go! (But that was quite random though, anonymous...lolllll). Thanks for the quiz!

Jaycee said...

Simi...I won't show u...*sticks tongue out*

Omosewa...7 people beat me to the chase...arrrrghh! It is well!

Jinta...don't let ur heart stop beating o....my priority is God. Lol...all other things come after that!! How's ur weekend...i forgot to ask u for my own present!

naijalines said...

True. God's love never fails. It's the only love that's 100%unconditional.

olubern said...

God whispers sweet "Yea and so be it".

Jaycee **Wink**

Anonymous, can't add 2 to 27 it's like adding 4 to 25 that's why u got 29, Instead subtract two from 27 to get 25...amount paid for the room.

The men paid $9 dollars each => $27
Where did all the money go?
Room is $25, Bell boy has $2, men have $3 => $30

i love that u love the Lord. Thanks for an uplifting message. We tend to forget how deep and true that love is sometimes. We often trample on that love...but thank God for his mercies! His mercies endure for ever.

OluwaDee said...

"It was not in2 my ear u whispered but into my heart. It was not my lips u kissed but my soul".

Love that.

May times God whispers his words of love n comfort in2 our ears n it goes straight into our hearts.

SOLOMONSYDELLE said...

For the love of God we can never fail.

Amin!

nneoma said...

i love how you started with the image of lovers on a train. it was beautiful, but not nearly as beautiful as the love God extended to us (Christ) even when we were not receptive of it (as sinners). Lovely

Remi, United Kingdom said...

God loves us unconditionally, eternally, we dont have to pay anyhting for HIS love and best of all nothing can separate us from HIS love..

we do wrong, cause his heart to bleed and yet he brings us back, forgives us and takes us back in..
the love still remains untainted!
