This question struck me when I saw it come across my phone screen:
Are You Brave Enough To Love?
Think about it for a minute. Love is a million different things. It feels SO good to be loved, completely and truly! You know what I’m talking about; the jolt that goes right through your body when someone you love touches you! Isn’t that just the best feeling in the entire world? OR, being wrapped in their loving arms … there’s nothing better than a big hug where you lay your head against their chest and hear their heart beating. Gentle touches, fingers entwined together, brushing the hair from your face as their way of showing you affection. It is all worth it. And hearing it, honestly, are there any sweeter words to pass through your loved ones lips straight to your heart?
With love, sometimes heartache and pain follows. You can’t choose who your heart will love. That’s a fact. You can try to steer it in the right direction, but it happens. You find yourself falling head over heels before you know it.
~WHAM~ You crash into it like a Maserati going 100 MPH into a brick wall. And you’re left dumbstruck.
And you bask in the warmth of love that spills over you like the rays of the sun on a beautiful Spring day.
Sadly, there’s love that is one-sided. There’s love that you want to be returned to you, yet they can’t freely express it. There’s love that will remain in secret, never spoken of and never acted upon.
And silent tears will fall. Pillows will be soaked from sleepless nights spent pining for the one your heart desires most.
That’s love; all balled into one big wonderful maddening mess of heart-strings that feel like electrical current at times.
In the end, it is always worth it, though. No regrets!
To have felt love with a mere glance across the room that sends your heart fluttering like a million butterflies were let loose inside your soul. And to have loved, passionately, like the color red. If there could ever be a color assigned to signify love, deep, blood-red would be the one I’d choose. Love.
That’s the greatest feeling in the universe when you’re caught up in a whirlwind of emotions, like storm force winds in a hurricane. Love.
When love isn’t returned the way you want it to be, or if someone doesn’t love you like you think they should, it isn’t wrong. Maybe they are loving you with all they have. Perhaps they’ve experienced too many heartaches themselves to freely love with abandon. They might choose not to make themselves vulnerable for fear of having their hearts broken all over again. Who knows other than God and that person? It’s tucked deep inside, and they are the only ones that can open their hardened heart to allow you inside.
We are commanded to love. In the bible, there’s so many scriptures about love. Passionate love, or even loving thy neighbor. Even stating that the greatest gift is love. And it is!!
