As she contemplated on her experiences she realises that Love is the greatest possession anyone can have , it conquers and it prevails, it removes fear, when love consumes you, you become unshakeable and can execute any task , still observing her experiences , encounters and engagements she observes that there were periods when Her life fell apart, She was without a job and had no place to stay She was around people who claimed to be multi-millionaires, but when it was time to receive help, in the eyes of the richest it was the poor of the poorest who came to Her rescue by giving Her food and taking Her to their homes….as She sat still in Her closet one day She discovered that when you love and desire to do something, just do it ….sometimes you do not need the money or anything , the Love you have within you is enough to achieve all that you desire, she then decided and chose to Love and do everything with Love, it doesn’t matter the outcome , if She loves something She will pursue it , believing it to manifest, that is the promise She made to Herself.
Love is the foundation of all
Love is a very small word but it carries a lot of weight. Love is easily despised and looked down upon by those who do not believe in it, yet its ability is so massive. Love is a very strong feeling of affections, it is a great interest and pleasure in something. Love is from the heart therefore it is sincere.
She thought long and hard about Love asking herself questions like…Do I love? Do I do things out of love? Do I deserve to be loved?, Do I really have the ability to love other people?….,Is loving somebody an obligation or a choice?.. She has heard so many takes on Love ….others say love is blind …love does not exist and she once read a book that says “ONLY LOVE IS REAL”…enough with other people’s thoughts …..As she looked deeper into herself she realised that she believes in love , as she collected her memories, she has been loved, she loved and she still loves and it came to her that she can do other things to develop this wonderful feature, as she discovered that love is an inborn element in each and every person , we are born having love but it needs to be developed and be channelled accordingly because if Love is undeveloped and not channelled correctly it dies, and that is when false sayings like “love does not exist” emerge.
She has been hurt, cheated on and betrayed by so many people and she believes that She has also hurt and betrayed so many people she claimed to love, as She recalled all these terrible memories from her experiences…” I should be the person saying Love does not exist “She reckoned, but here She still believes in love…hoping one day she will be able to love boundlessly.
One day as she pondered upon a well-known scripture John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. Looking at what God did for the world made her to be aware that Love is about giving and sacrificing, Love is a good thought or idea that results in good actions. Love has an element of giving, and you don’t give because what you want to give is something that you do not like or do not need anymore. but you give because love is your driving force. God loving the world, loving His people He felt nothing but a strong compelling feeling to manifest his Being by giving up his one and only precious son. He extremely loved His people that He forgot about Himself and put the world as His priority, He lost his precious son in order for us to gain life that is eternal.
Even in this physical world she has heard so many people doing crazy things in the name of love, maybe that is where the saying “love is blind” comes from ….In the natural it may seem blind but experiencing the Love of God she realised that Love has insight of the things that are yet to come, yes it Has insight of things that are hidden, She began to experience the Love that is not blind ….”where would I be without the Love of God?” she asked herself ….maybe dead if not lost …the love of God taught her to love herself and appreciate the way She is, She learnt to accept other people .The love of God is unfailing , boundless, deeper and beyond human understanding , nobody understands giving away your only child just because you love somebody, but yes He did it …God did it for her. Acknowledging this limitless Love ….She has grown to love herself and to do everything out of love , starting from small things like praying for other people , cleaning the house, helping other people…etc. Thinking about what the scripture was revealing to her she began to visualise how a better place the world could be if she was to do everything out of love, she imagined how her life could change if she exude love in all her activities …no hypocrisy, no favouritism no deception at all, how pleased God would be if she could do just that, she wondered if something like this is possible with her, something whispered to her “Yes, it is possible through Jesus “
Love brings fulfilment, as the Holy book says that you can have all things but if you have no love you have nothing ..the Holy book defines love as follows .It is patient, kind, does not envy, does not boast, it is not proud , It is not rude, it is not self-seeking , it is not easily angered , it keeps no record of wrong , love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth , it always protect, it always trust, always hopes, always perseveres , it never fails …this is the love God wants us to possess so that we may find solace from each other. In discovering this truth, she perceived that God does not have love but He is Love, and that was made evident when He gave His only precious Son ….
