I poured myself into the translation of the booklet Original Love, and laboured into the night hours to finish the work. Precious insights into the Word of God and his intention for my marriage unfolded in my mind as I laboured through the translation work.
I saw how I was playing the role that the enemy wants me to play in my most sacred relation on earth – with my husband. I saw the mistakes that I made - how the Eros love between the two of us has dominated and crushed our relationship and how that was causing grieve to the heart of God. I learnt the hard lesson (and I am STILL learning this lesson J) of submission to my earthly beloved, not for the sake of gaining anything, not even to gain my husband’s approval and love, but for the sake of appreciation for what God has given me - a wonderful husband with whom I can serve God.
Now, in the quiet night hours, I took up the booklet from Adrian, called My Beloved, and continued reading the book where I had left it the previous night.
When I got to the section on the Father, describing the Father of Love, some more of the precious rays of the new light came shining out from the pages of the booklet. WOW! I got up from bed (not to disturb my husband) and went to the lounge where I sat down to meditate on the new insights that flooded my soul. Is THIS the God that I serve? A God of love and mercy? Is He really willing to betroth me as a sinner – as a daughter of Adam - to His precious Son, so that I can become a child of the Ancient of Days??? So that I can take on the characteristics of the Father of Love?
