Tonight I watched the all-star cast movie, He’s just not that into you, starring Ginnifer Goodwin, Justin Long, Ben Affleck, Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Aniston, and other current faves.
The movie was basically about how complicated marriage and singles’ relationships are. As in real life, some of these relationships ended happily; some did not.
Alex (Justin Long) is the truthful voice through the movie, telling the desperate-for-this-great-new-guy-to-call Gigi (Ginnifer Goodwin) the dating do’s and don’t’s – and what a guy really means when he is saying he’s going to be going out of town at the end of the date. Girls don’t understand the confusing “signals” and words that guys give sometimes, and Alex is trying to help Gigi get the real meanings – and to no longer waste her time, waiting for that phone call. Meanwhile, Gigi realizes that it is Alex her friend who is into her.
After I watched the movie, I was so thankful to no longer be single; the benefit of marriage is that you don’t have to wait around for that phone call. He’s right there in the next room, along with his dirty socks on the floor. 🙂
I also thought about how it is God who just IS that into us. He loves us so much! God never gives us mixed signals. He proved His love and devotion for us, once and for all, when Jesus died on the cross over 2,000 years ago. He said it was final, it was all over. We were what He wanted, and He’d do whatever it took to get us – and He did!
God never has call waiting or goes out of town on vacation. He’s always there, always wanting us. He can’t wait to hear the sound of our voice or to see our face (Song of Solomon 2:14). He just wants to be with us.
God just IS that into you.
