A year ago, I wrote something about love…
This year I’ll do the same.
You know when you watch some of those cheesy romantic movies and you start to question where these guys come from? or when you listen to those songs that make you have a platonic crush on the artist? or maybe the lead character of this book you are reading it’s just perfect?
Human beings are drawn to have an everlasting desire to find love. Think about it for a moment. Music and books: they all talk about love, maybe the feelings they had before the relationship or during the relationship and we can’t forget the strong feeling of heartbreak when that relationship ends. If they are not talking (or singing) about it, they talk about the love they have for their mother, father, sister, daughter, son or a friend. Maybe you are asking about the famous “hate songs”, well my friend when you hate someone probably it’s because you have loved them before, if not, it’s because that person hurt someone that you love, yourself included. Movies: Maybe when you watch those cheesy movies you see this gorgeous guy that says and do the right things, and we fall instantly in love because we are drawn to the idea of that person and want to have that kind of love, if you are a guy maybe you watch these movies and see this beautiful girl with blue eyes and long hair and hate it because you can’t have her, she’s not real. Deep inside of us we all love those movies, songs and books, you want to admit it or not. But why is that?
Why do we go to a new place and see this girl or guy and think:” hey he/she seems nice, I want him/her to be my friend”? or maybe you see this person from your opposite sex and do and say whatever it takes for them to love you as much as you do? or when you are in a group of people and you don’t say what you are thinking because you are afraid of rejection? why do we have to be accepted? why do we want to be cherish and important to someone? why do we need to feel secure and confident? and why do we have the need to have this strong feelings for things and people?
Why love is the center our lives?
Love it’s EVERYWHERE.We need it, it’s part of us. Love makes us complete. We can’t live without love, that’s why it’s represented by the most important organ of our body and that is our hearts, without it we can’t live. If our heart stops our life stops. The human being needs to love and be loved. That’s our nature it’s like we are design to have this insatiable desire to feel loved and give love. And the evidence of all of this it’s in the Bible, it’s right there and for years I didn’t even realized it. I get so angry because I lost a lot of time thinking and convincing myself that love doesn’t exists, that all of those music, books and movies were just some kind of publicity trick to get all our money by selling us an idea of love… real love. But now I realized the thing that those people call love, it’s somehow a cheap version of love, it doesn’t even begin to describe real love, and the sad part of all it’s that we conformed ourselves to that little non important and cheap version of love, and we are even capable to do whatever it takes to get it, without thinking the consequences. The answer I wasn’t looking but somehow found and for sure won’t let it go is:
GOD IS LOVE
God is love! That’s the answer you are looking for. God it’s the center of our existence, HE is why we are here, and that’s why we are drawn to look for him everywhere. He is the reason we are perfectly design to have the long, exhausting and beautiful search of Love. We spend our lives looking for the perfect love, the one that is pure, simple, honest and mind blowing. That kind of love that makes you feel accepted, secured, cherished, trusted and complete. But we are mostly looking for a love that lasts forever, and let me tell you something, my friend, GOD IS NOT GOING ANYWHERE. He is just patiently waiting for you to notice that you are looking for the cheap version of love in the wrong path. He is hoping that you turn around and search for the right one. When you find it, you’ll never look behind, because when you find real love there’s nothing that will ever replace it
