I can imagine that a lot of people will read this post.
There’s just something about the word “Love” that draws people.
We are all different. Some of us are privileged to sit atop our own businesses and organizations.Others are just working our way to the top…against all odds.
Some of us have assets that run into several millions of dollars. Others are just getting by.
Some of us are happily married. Others are single and searching.
Some of us are endowed with good looks. Others have to make up for that someway or the other but one thing we all desire-regardless of our size, stature or status, is TRUE LOVE.
We all want to be appreciated and celebrated not just accepted and tolerated. It’s an innate desire that we all have.
Our quest for TRUE LOVE has led some of us to the brink or even the depths of molestation while the rest of us have had it a lot easier and better.
Whatever side of the divide you currently belong to, there are a few things that we all must understand and consistently remind ourselves of when it comes to love.
TRUE LOVE is not about the hype or how fast you type when you chat with your loved ones on skype.
It’s not about tagging your spouse’s picture on Facebook or applying all the tips in your favorite marriage guidebook.
It’s not about raunchy videos on YouTube or wearing that transparent boob tube.
It’s not about making your voice sound sweeter or leaving lusty lines on Twitter.
It beyond the length of your skirt and the quality of your shirt.
It’s beyond your sexual involvement and your financial investment.
It’s about devotion, dedication, sacrifice.
True love is not about the height of your excitement. It’s about the depth of your commitment. Now, that’s not easy.
French-kissing is easy. Making out is easy. Posting fancy pictures on your BlackBerry device is easy. Sending heartwarming love notes is easy but staying there when you don’t feel like is not easy. Standing by the bedside of your partner for hours in the hospital ward is not easy. Enduring their nuances and temper tantrums is not easy. Forgiving their faults and over-looking their imperfections where necessary, is not easy.
Don’t get caught up with the sentimental scenes of the popular Romantic Comedies on satellite television. They are good for entertainment and sometimes they educate but when push comes to shove, what will keep you going are not the butterflies in your stomach. It’s the resolution in your heart to love the unlovable, forgive the unforgivable and give more than you’d ever expect to give.
That’s very tough and humanly speaking, almost impossible.
That’s why you need God.
