There is a lot of advice floating around in literature, various social circles and the church on how to find love. I used to be an avid consumer of relationship literature however, I am afraid we have taken a lot of this secular and non-secular relationship advice as the Gospel Truth, overlooking the fact that God has an individual plan for everybody that also includes an individual love story.
If you continue to withdraw your love when I do wrong I’ll spend the rest of my life obsessed about it though I won’t really know it.
Grace isn’t about what’s fair, it isn’t about what we deserve it’s about who God is.
God doesn’t expect us to have amnesia about our pasts. But don’t regard the pain of the past as more significant than the work He wants to do in you today.
Learning to love yourself is a life-long process. Instead of trying to figure out your worth in someone else’s eyes women and men need to know firstly how much God loves them and then secondly they need to grow in love towards themselves.
Back in 2015 I stopped communicating with someone I had grown to like as more than a friend. I was disappointed about the way things ended and I wrote a few poems about it.
Everyone wants to be loved. Every little boy and girl wants to know that they matter to Daddy. And we carry this longing in our hearts as adults. It’s in all of our nature, God created us this way.
Love requires growth. Love involves risk. Love is not safe.
