This is not going to be a WHAT IS LOVE nosebleeder and neither is it going to be a snarky, bitter “date-shmate” sort of post. Let’s get you SAD (single awareness day) people off that chair. If you didn’t have a date yesterday why should it be more depressing that you don’t have a date today? Hahaha, hope that helped. I want my thoughts on the matter to be warm (I’ll try), genuine, and what I really think about humans and love should sweetly smack you in the face. Yes, these are my hands.
The funny thing about us human beings is we actually KNOW what love is, we’re programmed to know. None of this “I wanna know what love is…” ignoramus baloney, WE KNOW, or at least we recognize it. Deep inside, nearly every sane person more or less knows how other people should be treated or cherished and even if you didn’t grow up in 7th Heaven the only problem might be the absence of loving habits and the problem of pain or disappointment, but we all know how we or other people want to be loved, how we need to be loved is a whole different story. Now, I think what a lot of us need to get is God’s way of expanding our ability to love and reinforcing consistency. A lot of us suck at consistency. Who knows what a Mech Warrior is? (crickets) Geez, wrong audience, well if you watched Matrix Revolutions, or Avatar even, the mech suits were like enlarged robotic extensions of every soldier, enabling them to do what they do best on a bigger scale. I think God tenderly and genuinely wants us all to be able to love wholeheartedly BIG. In order to do that though, we need to choose Him and put His garment on. What’s achingly beautiful about the whole thing is He doesn’t just enable us to love better, He loves us first before we extend His lovingkindness, that way, bringing the love forward doesn’t become a “chore”, it becomes real, you do it and really want to. In my life God has been overwhelmingly present and close to me in spite of my failures. I’ve not been daughter of the year for 2012 I think, but He still looks for me when I’m not looking for Him. That just really gets me emotional sometimes when I catch myself, knowing that He keeps the candle burning and doesn’t lock the front door ’til I’m home. He always reminds me that I am His and no one can change that and He wants me to be loved as best as I possibly can be so I can love other people the same way. For those who have dates, check your teeth and smile, and for those who don’t or who have love problems, ANU BEH, watch this video here keep on smiling and smile some more, you ARE LOVED.
New International Version (NIV)
“37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[a] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
