It's amazing what we beings will do for love. I look back on relationships within my life and cringe at some of the people I ached to love me. Most of these people didn't deserve to be in my life at all, yet I wanted their love so badly. My husband and I have been through some rough storms in our thirteen years of marriage, but never did we ever have to jump through hoops for one another's love. It just happened naturally and from day one felt as if it were meant to be. I'll be the first to say on any given day I have wanted to ring his neck. LOL
What we are both learning in our spiritual walk with God is being in love also requires great patience. The love I receive from Princess Charlie and my hubby are natural highs, but the love I receive from God himself is on an entirely different level. I feel this joy that I simply can not explain, yet I know it when it arrives. In my journey of building a relationship with God I have also fallen head over heels with myself. Now that love is simply divine! I've learned to love everything about me. I love my faults just as much as I love my assets. This brings my mental state to a brand new level. When you love yourself you can love anyone who comes your way - even enemies. Is it easy? No way, but it's possible! It's a day by day process, but LOVE can change your life. I started by getting to know God and in doing so fell deeply in love with my Father. Knowing He loved me no matter what made me see myself in a whole new light. With that I was able to view others differently. Because of love I am patient with myself, kind to myself and truly love the being I am becoming. With each minute I am blessed to learn what love can truly do.
I pray you are blessed to know what love can truly do!
