I rather love so deeply that it hurts, than to measure it according to everyone else’s standard.
Not because I love deeper, but because I am deeply loved. It wouldn’t be right for me to give any less than everything.
In this time, the heart of millions have grown so cold. As scary it may be to love, I prefer a broken heart over a cold & closed heart any day!
I have tried measuring my love, and it ended tragically-not for the friendships, but for myself. Knowing that I could be less prideful, cold, but trying to protect myself.. Killed the warmth inside of me.
How could I give any less when Jesus has given me all He is, entirely laid down?
The word has spoken life into my dry and thirsty soul. My response to Him will be what I do with my every breath and each heart beat.
I vow to make each heart beat one filled with life and love of God, not by my own might or strength but by His Spirit. May the life and love in His blood pump within each heart beat.. I pray the same for each person reading.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
New International Version (NIV)
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
