I don’t even know where I’m going with this post; I’m just writing whatever comes to my mind about love.
Love is a beautiful thing.
My church says all the time, “Love is what love does.”
But, why when we glance around the world, there seems to be lack of it? But, to take it a step further, why do we sometimes have a lack of love for ourselves? We seek love in a man, in a woman, a pet, or in whatever we believe that can provide some sort of validation for us, but ourselves.
At what point do see our own value? At WHAT POINT do we stop looking for someone (man/woman) or something to complete us?
I believe we come to that point when we find love within ourselves. We can’t truly love someone if we don’t love ourselves. We can’t give what we don’t have.
Why can’t we see that we’re fully capable of being loved and fully capable TO love?
See, we were made out of love. Every little organ and every little cell combined that makes up our entire body was handcrafted in love.
When love is shown properly, it can heal, encourage, inspire, protect, and so much more, including planting a smile on our faces 😉
I just wish that we all can see the love within ourselves and allow that inner love to emanate to the world. Love is really beautiful; we need more of it.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres (1 Corinthians 13:4-7 NIV)
Do everything in love (1 Corinthians 16:14 NIV)
