This was NOT the post I would have guessed I'd get from Vox Dei author Mary Graziano Scro. But it is perfect, and a beautiful story about perfect love.
Perfect for Each Other, by Mary Graziano Scro
He saw her standing there, perfectly posed in the knee-deep meadow. Her luscious, rosy red, perfectly formed lips beckoned him. Her honey-colored, long hair framed her perfectly-shaped face and beautiful blue eyes.
Gliding toward her, quickly yet stiffly, his arms pumped in perfect “pump” form. He could hardly wait to pull her into his tanned, strong, he-man arms and meld his lips with hers, sure they’d be a perfect fit. His brown, wavy hair – not too curly or too straight – remained perfectly styled as he flew toward her.
Her dress, oh, her dress – flimsy, flowing, flowery fabric – revealed every perfect curve of her body as it rippled with the breeze. His own body – muscular, lean, and perfectly packed into his denim jeans and short-sleeved t-shirt – was a perfect match for hers.
Finally, the moment arrived where their hands, then arms, then bodies met in a stiff but perfectly timed embrace. He brought his mouth to hers, and held it there for what seemed like an eternity, relishing the most perfect moment of his life.
“Honey, lunch time!”
Sally Jane snatched up Barbie and Ken by the legs, and went in for lunch.
Unlike Barbie and Ken in this story, our feeble human love will never be perfect. We are all flawed, imperfect beings in need of a loving Savior whose…
…law is perfect (Psalm 19:7)
…way is perfect (2 Samuel 22:31)
…works are perfect (Deuteronomy 32:4)
…gifts are good and perfect (James 1:17)
…power is made perfect in (our) weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9)
…perfect love casts out fear (1 John 4:18)
“For by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.” (Hebrews 10:14 NIV)
That’s anyone who will “declare with their mouth that “Jesus is Lord”, and believe in their heart that God raised him from the dead.” (Romans 10:9)
If you’re tired of looking for perfect love in all the wrong places, come to Jesus. He died for you so your sins could be forgiven, was resurrected so you could share in His life, and is waiting for you with open arms.
You and Jesus – you’re perfect for each other.

An unseen battle swirls around us every day, undetected by most. As Christians, we can only win the battle if we’re aware of it.
The devil’s goal is to separate us from God and from each other – not with obvious attacks of evil, but by luring us away, one small, seemingly innocent choice at a time. He can only defeat us if we let him – if we are unprepared, unaware, or unwise with our choices.
God calls us to advance the Kingdom of God on the earth, and to love the lost into it. He gave us the authority we need in Jesus, and the Holy Spirit to empower us to do what we cannot in our own strength – all to accomplish His mission.
In Intentional Warfare, author Mary Graziano Scro shares practical advice and testimony from her life, supported by Scripture, about how to win the daily spiritual battles through Bible study, obedience, perseverance, and faith in the One who already won the war.
