Jesus the Romantic

I've been feeling the oh-so-sweet sting of singleness a bit more than usual lately. Tonight at Mass, I was feeling down about being alone, and I just looked up at the crucifix. I asked Jesus to help give me the peace and happiness of belonging to him and him alone for right now.* I asked him to send me a good and faithful man when the time is right; a man who seeks God and ends up finding me, too (package deal!). I asked him to woo my heart (because apparently dying on the cross for me hasn't been enough to convince me that he loves me) to help me fall even more in love with him.

As I was driving home, I was listening to some of my favorite music in the car, and I thought, "I wish some guy would sing this song to me..." And then it hit me that I have Someone even better - Jesus singing those songs to me!

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Jesus knows how to woo a lady.

Here are just a few of the songs that I pictured Jesus singing to me tonight. I hope you too can feel Jesus working to romance your heart a little bit during this Easter feast!

When do you most feel Jesus working hard to win you over?

*Yes, St. Joe is still my beau, for those of you who are wondering. But I'm not cheating or anything because St. Joe is totally cool with Jesus being my boyfriend. I know this because 1.) St. Joe is the man, and 2.) He was totally cool with Mary being the spouse of the Holy Spirit. He's just not the jealous type! Plus, whenever he is beau-arific with me, he's really just pointing me closer to Jesus anyway.


  1. Ah, Liesl, I hear Jesus speak to me all the time in songs like these! Praying your heart is happy!

    1. I think most of my prayer revelations are when I'm listening to music... guess that's how God likes to chat with me! Hope he starts chatting again!

  2. I also like "I See The Light" from Tangled.

  3. Jesus is working to win me over when there is nothing left but Him--He's all I've got to rely on! God willing, we'll have wonderful husbands someday, only God knows when!
