Looking for Love

Sometimes when you look for love, you’ll actually find it!

Hi, I’m Renee Swope for Proverbs 31 Ministries. I’ll never forget the day I found the love I was looking for!

I’d been struggling with depression for years. One day I was walking around my college campus thinking about my life and wondering why I felt so empty;

I thought about my dreams of marrying my high school sweetheart – dreams that crumbled because I expected him to be everything I needed.

I thought about my professors and friends whose approval I so desperately wanted.

I thought about how hard I’d worked to graduate with honors to prove my worth.

I wondered why none of it was enough. Then God whispered to my heart a thought I’d never had: "Renee, all you’ve ever wanted is unconditional love. But, you’ll never find the love you need in anyone but ME!”

That’s the day I found the love I’d been looking for! To learn more about God’s unconditional love, visit proverbs31.org.

Thanks Renee. It took me a while to find this radio minute. I listen to 89.3 KSBJ in Conroe, TX. I find your daily talk a little too upbeat and well "perfect" sounding. Well, God has been working on my envy problem and I usually listen real well and then say a quick prayer for you and your ministry because it is so helpful. Today was the best, maybe you are so cheerful because for a season you had to deal with depression! Wow! Just this Sunday God told me to start showing myself as a Christain because of my radiating JOY!. Maybe I am going to become a just like you a Provers 31 woman!

Again, bless you and your ministry. I cry as I write this - I am so impressed with Proverbs 31 and have been listening for years, but pride kept me from visiting the website.
