A love like this…

Have you ever perceived Love this way?

(You could replace the word ‘love’ in the first and second paragraph with a friend, parent, spouse’s name)

Love is almost like a life on its own

Love wakes you up in the morning

Love makes sure that you’ve had something to eat

Love checks up on you throughout the day

Love sometimes surprises you with unexpected words or appearances

Love holds you close and squeezes you just enough

Love prays for you

Love makes you laugh till your body aches

Love makes you happy and giggly

Love genuinely cares about you

But

Love also hurts

Love reminds you of some fears you may have hidden at the back of your mind

Love is sensitive

Love has made you cry

Love has unknowingly made you insecure

Love has tried to break down some concrete walls successfully and unsuccessfully

Love has made you rethink past choices

Love has made you question how to love.

But

Biblical Love says this:

Love is patient and kind , it does not envy or boast

Love is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful

Love does not rejoice at wrong doing but rejoices with the truth

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.

Many times we replace love with people and things we are not sure of and end up perceiving it selfishly.

You see, God is Love, the author and finisher of it, therefore he demonstrates how we ought to love thy neighbor as we love ourselves.

So it becomes a beautiful thing to love and be loved whether it be our friends, spouses, girlfriends, family members etc. But even the capability of loving(even though it isn’t perfect), has been gifted to us by our Creator. How awesome yeah? that we can love others so deeply and greatly through God.

God’s love never tires and never ends, having a relationship with him will show you that. This type of love, is the one you should be holding onto with everything you have.

Yours truly,

Debbie.

    Yup…she’s the one 😅

    I’m truly blessed and loved by God to have someone to love and who can also love me who knows what love is – its pain and pleasure, its beauty and bruising, it’s triumphs and terrors. Love is complex and layered and only an understanding of, and relationship with the one who is love, can grant us any shred of comprehension of what it truly is.

    A beautiful piece by the even more beautiful Debbie. I recommend this reading to all of you without reservation 🙌
