Romantic Movie Quotes

Special thanks to Robin Jones Gunn, a wonderful author whose books have often encouraged me. I loved her Valentine’s blog so much that I asked for permission to share it.  Consider it our Valentine’s gift to you.

You know that feeling that comes when you’re watching a favorite movie and the hero delivers a line that makes you sigh? Here are a few that get me every time. You too?

“My heart is and always will be, yours.”  (Sense and Sensibility)

“You had me at hello.” (Jerry McGuire)

“I will find you. No matter how long it takes, no matter how far, I will find you.” (The Last of the Mohicans)

Ahhh, love! What is it that resonates so deeply in our hearts when we hear those lines? Why do the words feel tenderly familiar as if we thought we heard, or hoped we heard them spoken once before?

I have a theory about that.

I believe the romantic lines that melt our hearts are an echo of declarations whispered over us before we were born. Those expressions of eternal affection were spoken by the Relentless Lover and continue to echo in our souls. Deep calls to deep and our hearts long to respond.

See if you agree with my theory when you look at the list of movie lines followed by what God said in His love letter to us.

“My heart is, and always will be, yours.”  (Sense and Sensibility)

“I have redeemed you. I have called your name. You are mine.” Isaiah 43:2

 

“I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.” (Pride and Prejudice)

“I will be with you . . . I will not fail you or abandon you.” Joshua 1:5

 

“I will find you. No matter how long it takes, no matter how far, I will find you.” (The Last of The Mohicans)

“I want them back, every last one who bears my name, every man, woman, and child whom I created for my glory.” Isaiah 43:6

 

“I want you. I want all of you, forever, you and me, every day.” (The Notebook)

“You are precious to me. You are honored, and I love you.”  Isaiah 43:4

 

“I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the ages of this world alone.” (The Fellowship of the Rings)

“I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself.” Jeremiah 31:3

 

“Here’s looking at you, kid.”  (Casablanca)

“The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him.” 2 Chronicles 16:9

 

“I promise I’ll come back for you. I promise I’ll never leave you.” (The English Patient)

“God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5

 

“You had me at hello.” (Jerry McGuire)

“You saw me before I was born and scheduled each day of my life before I began to breathe.” Psalm 139:16

 

Kinda’ cool, huh?

The only way I can think of responding to such extravagant love that has been lavished upon us by the true Prince of Peace is to say to Him,

 

“As you wish.” (The Princess Bride)

“I want your will to be done, not mine.” Matthew 26:39

 

From Genesis to Revelations, the Bible is sprinkled with love notes from God to us.  I’ve prepared a list of those “Valentines” from our Bridegroom and titled it, “What God Says About You”. You can find the list in chapter 2 of a book I co-authored with Alyssa Joy Bethke titled, Spoken For.

I’ve also made the list available for FREE in my Online Shop. Click here to download it today as a Valentine from me to you with much love.

      :O) I did, too. If you haven’t read her books, they are a great respite. Light, fun stories with a spiritual undertone that sort of surprise and refresh.
