Love and Other Drugs
P.S. I Love You
Love is a Four Letter Word
Do a Google search and there’s about a million and a half movies with this word in the title. What word is that?? LOVE. Now, I have to ask myself a question: What the heck is love anyway? Hollywood gives us many situations in which a character will do anything for their earthly love and many hearts are broken in the process. The characters fall out of love then go through the ringer trying to get love back or just move on to the next “love” of their lives. Tons of drama happens then we get a sweet love song at the end and assume they are happy for the rest of their lives and nothing else will ever go wrong.
Why should we want to put our entire lives and more importantly our hearts into someone or something that will probably let us down eventually? After the credits roll…
Well, I have found a true love. God’s love…Everlasting love! God, who LOVES me so much that He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ to be nailed to a tree so I could be forgiven of everything I have ever and will ever do wrong. So I can spend an eternity Loving Him! God will never make me jump through rings of fire to get to Him and love Him. He will never cheat on me or break my heart, even if I break His. Even if I stumble and let other things get in the way of my relationship with Him, He will never leave me or forsake me. I am in Love with Jesus Christ and I am after His own heart! It’s this love that makes my world spin. It makes my heart feel better. I feel all warm and fuzzy inside when I think about this love.
You know what the best part is? I can share this love! See, this Love is so big, I cannot just keep it to myself. I want everyone to experience God’s love and they can! Let Jesus Christ into your heart and feel the same way. God loves all of us and wants this type of relationship with all. Pray and talk to Him. When you fall in love, you want to make the other person proud of you and happy. Live your life to glorify Him and all the Love He gives. We are not saved by works, but by grace alone! This love goes two ways. He loves us, so he gave his Son and offers us eternal life. We love Him, so we need to live our lives for Him. Forgetting all our worldly pleasures and setting our eyes on Jesus. When you accept Him, you become a new creation. He transforms hearts and begins to heal the wounds already there. He wants you to open up to Him and in the communication aspect, treat it like you would an earthly relationship. Tell Him everything. He will listen! Spend time with Him! Get to know Him! Fall in True Love!
Okay, now as a side note, it may have come across as though I do not believe in love on Earth. Do not get me wrong. I do! I personally have not found my partner yet but I know it is possible. Finding the man who will be my other half and walk as one with God…. But I do know that he HAS to love God more than he could ever love me. Jesus is my number One and I want my husband to feel the same. I don’t want to get in the way of his walk and I ask the same of him. He needs to be a man of courage and lead our family in the teachings of God.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave His only begotten Son, so that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Exodus 13:15 In your unfailing love you will lead the people you have redeemed. In your strength you will guide them to your holy dwelling.
