Many of the questions often asked are “What does it mean to love or when someone says I love you? How can you love someone? What does the word itself mean?
There are a lot of conflicting ideas about what love means or the other questions. Love is a word that is commonly used in all kinds of relationships. The value and importance of love is degraded in most societies today. Love is the very foundation of human existence ignored in narcissistic life situations as a result of the shape the world has adjusted to. Intellectualism and evolution has shaken the foundation. Thus causing a gap in the beginning and ending of what love is. No one is exempted from love.
God is love (1 John 4:8) ⇐⇒ Love never gives up, cares more for others than for self… (1 Corinthians 13:4-7) ⇐⇒ Love from the center of who you are… (Romans 12:9-10) ⇐⇒ This is how we have come to understand and experience love… (1 John 3:16-18) ⇐⇒ To you who are ready for the truth, I say this: Love your enemies… (Luke 6:27-31) ⇐⇒ Do not lose your grip on love and loyalty (Proverbs 3:3-4) ⇐⇒ Hatred starts fights, but love pulls a quilt over the bickering (Proverbs 10:12).
“Your greatest self has been waiting your whole life: do not make it wait any longer.” – Steve Maraboli.
Every human has an assignment here on earth; a journey to embark on. It is all about finding it and living it. Mission is what differentiates extraordinary people from ordinary people. Stop chasing shadows. Find out who you are and embrace it. There is no creator that creates anything without a need of it in the first place. You are here because the world needs you.
Your mission requires you to surrender yourself to be available for an assignment. Many at times, you are too busy figuring it out on your own. So, that your maker has not the opportunity to show you what you are needed for.
Now you might be a late bloomer. Do not let it bother you at all because a spoon cannot be used in place of a knife. It is impossible. Just keep going on your journey and when you reach your blooming destination, you will bloom.
Then He said, “Go into the world. Go everywhere… (Mark 16:15) ⇐⇒ Take the news of His glory to the lost… (Psalm 96:3; 1 Chronicles 16:24) ⇐⇒ Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near… (Matthew 28:19-20) ⇐⇒ The spirit of God, the Master, is on me because God anointed you. He sent you… (Isaiah 61; Luke 4:18) ⇐⇒ Before I shaped you in the womb, I knew all about you… (Jeremiah 1:5).
Stop and listen. Listen to every word and action. Listen to the air around you. Listen to what your heart is telling you. Listen to what your mind is saying. Just listen. Listen harder than you know. Forget what you think and listen. Listen to what God is telling you, people are saying. And then do it.
Lead with your ears… (James 1:19) ⇐⇒ He wants you to listen to Him… (1 Samuel 15:22)
It takes you farther in life. It stretches you and your boundaries beyond limits and expectations. Faith is what makes closed doors to open for you. Faith is what makes impossibilities possible. How far you go in life is dependent on the level of your faith. You fall when your faith fails and you rise when you faith is healthy. Live your best life.
The fundamental fact of existence is that this trust in God, this faith, is… (Hebrews 11:1) ⇐⇒ Because those who wait upon God get fresh strength… (Isaiah 40:31) ⇐⇒ …Courage, it is me… (Matthew 14:27).
