WOE, When Love Hurts so Bad

Have you ever had or known someone who was trying so hard to get another person to see them, accept them and love them when in essence, God had already done all of the above. John 3:16 ““For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.”

The love we are so desperately willing to compromise our very being for was given to us as unconditional love through the blood of Jesus Christ, even unto death. Therefore, we should never settle for less than what God has prepared for us. 1 Cor. 2:9 “Eye hath not seen nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God had prepared for them that love him.”

Yet we try so hard, tears in our eyes hoping and praying that others, whether it is a spouse, a parent, or a friend can see the great person that we are when God was the one that made us to be the great person that He called us to be for His glory.

We serve a God that gives us sunshine in the morning to wake us up, the sweet aroma of flowers blooming in the spring, the moon light to woo us to sleep. He knows our heart and speaks softly to let us know that He sees it when no one else does. Psalms 139:13-14 “You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it." The Psalmist sates “I shall lift my eyes to the hills, and His praises shall continually be on my mouth”. Greater is He that is in me, than He that is in the world. Jesus overcame the world so that through His blood, we have the victory.

Should those steps of rejection come to knock you down trying to bring misery and despair, remember God said in 1 Peter 2:4 “ To whom, coming as unto a lying stone, rejected indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious.” Man’s rejection is God’s protection; He never rejects us. God’s love is greater than any human love.

No one said there would not be heart breaks or disappointments in life. Truly, love can hurt so badly at times; No one knows this better than me.  Cry if you must, but it’s in God you trust. Joy does come in the morning.

Stay blessed my brothers and Sisters.
