Happy new month.
Happy new day.
I want to drop this beautiful piece for many reasons which are my exams are on and ill be away for a little while and I have not posted in a while. I’m really sorry. Please, forgive me?😊
So guys, I’m sitting on my bed right now with my laptop on my laps👩🏾💻. I’m eating chips🥨 and drinking chapman🍹. Oh and I’m listening to some lovey-dovey songs🎶.
I’m this hyped up mostly because of the sermon from church today. This month, my church (Sycamore Church) is doing a series titled “The Love Thing”. Today’s service was on “Love is a beautiful thing”
Well, who agrees?🙋🏾♀️
Honestly it is. Pastor mentioned that we all, including the Christians, allow the world to dictate the meaning of love to us. We say love hurts. We say love makes one stupid. We say love is fake. And we go as far as saying there is no true love. Which can be justifiable as a result of previous experiences and all.
Well Well we all have a story or two about love or rather that thing we try to qualify as love.
Love is one thing. Anything else is a make-believe.
“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.”
1 Corinthians 13: 4-7(NLT)
Well if you ask me, I’m not there yet as regards this Love thing. This definition is what love really is. Is anyone actually really there? I know I am not. Well that’s why we have God. God is love.
We hear many songs that try to describe love and the funny thing about it is that we can relate with the songs. We hear songs that tell us how it feels to be in love with someone and we are like, “this song gets me” but really???
There was this time I was so heartbroken, it felt like my heart was been ripped out, I could just stare into space and think of nothing, that moment that all I wanted to do was to feel better and I would listen to some songs and soak in my own sorrows.
But Im not in that place anymore where I soak in my own sorrows. Rather, I listen to songs that reminds that I serve the God that I stay, the God that runs in my direction when the world walks away and that there is nothing I could ever do to separate me from the Love of God. Soaking in my sorrows have never produced good results.
Well I don’t know about you but I love to feel loved. I love being told I am beautiful. I love Love.
Lets do the Love thing right. Because what the world calls love, is no Love.
Love is one. One. Unless there is another God, Love will remain one. There are only counterfeits.
Let’s pursue this kind of love. Let’s be this kind of love. I want to love my family with this kind of love. I want to love my friends with this kind of love. I want to my boyfriend with this kind of love. Let’s also make sure we have nothing less than this kind of love. So, this is where the kind of company we keep, matters.
“And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love”
