I had to learn the hard way to sacrifice and be willing to love even when it didn’t make any sense to do so. I lived underneath this cloud for a very long time, where I took the relationships I had of for granted. I felt as if I did not need to show love anymore because I assumed that they already knew that I “loved them.”
I treated a stranger better than my own family. That is not love.
Love does not show favoritism. Love is constant. Love does not judge. Love is humility and humility is not thinking less of yourself but thinking of yourself less.
I had to realize that I couldn’t change the people in my life. Rather than wasting my time judging them, correcting them, trying to change them, I heard God say “spend your time loving them.”
God is like the sun. We can’t see Him because of His greatness, because of who He is; but we can’t see anything without Him. On the other hand, we are very much like the clouds on a rainy day. We tend to cover up the sun (God) and block His light when things are going wrong and when everything seems to be falling apart.
We tend to stop loving because we are so consumed by what is going on in our own person lives that we completely forget who God is.
God deserves the highest of praises from the deepest places. We simply just need to let God be God and trust that He will make all things new and that His light will shine over us. We think that by running away from God is the way when things get rough; But God says, I am the Way and the Truth and the Life.
Love. Such a small, four-lettered word yet it means everything.
We Would Love To Hear From You:
Who do you feel loved by/Do you feel loved?
