We have all read the bible scriptures pertaining to love. Yet very few of us truly allow that word to make an indelible impression upon our heart(spirit). We still believe that Love is something that you "fall in & out of" and that is far from the truth. When you see Love with the wrong perspective, you definitely will end up treating it like the weather..sunny days you are in, rainy days you are out.
Love is not about your emotions (they are to finicky). And we know that love never fails...so how can it be about our emotions when we allow ourselves to go through all types of emotions on a daily basis? Would God allow us to be ruled by such unstableness? I think not. But He would remind us that without Him nothing is possible, but with Him all things are possible..thus setting into motion the truth that even as we live in breathe in our earthly form..Love is powerful, beyond measure.
Love in it's purest form = sacrifice. Just look at love's charateristics: patient, kind, does not envy, boast of itself or proud or rude. It does not demand it's own way. It's not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice in about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, NEVER LOSES FAITH, is always hopeful and ENDURES through every circumstance. It will LAST FOREVER. Love understands that as a child, you spoke like a child, reasoned like a child. But when you grew up, you put away childish things, and you are now able to see things with perfect clarity.
See in all the characteristics named, none is emotional..but rather your level of maturity in your relationship with Love. You can't be a wimp as it pertains to Love. Because He WHO IS LOVE, did not give you a spirit of fear..but a SPIRIT OF POWER, LOVE, AND A SOUND MIND..
So when you know that Love has showed up at the door, you let Love in, understand that everything will come after this GREAT GIFT you have been given, with a relentless pursuit..but don't you give in, and give love up, walk away, or quit! Love is not for cowards. Stand tall, don't fear, embrace love, and say to Love..I'm not going anywhere..you (Love) checked your "well" and understaning that you were "deep" enough to Love me, until I matured enough to love you back!
It's not about you..it's about the one you profess your love too. SACRIFICE
