Naturally it is so easy for us as human beings to give up on situations that cause a certain level of discomfort. It is not because we are unable to confront it but because its sometimes easier to create a shield. However what we forget is that this doesn’t solve the problem, instead, it causes us to creep in to a shell or cage we might never come out of.
When you get hurt, it is always painful and each time hurts even more than the first. The experience is extremely traumatising and nerve wrecking. It is no wonder that giving up often seems like the easier road to tread. And yet, it is rare that our hearts will conquer with the ideas you might have in mind.
The thing about love is that it doesn’t not allow you to just let go instantly regardless of the damages caused from multiple hurtful encounters. The reason is simple, love cannot let you give up each time you get hurt because that’s its nature. It requires you to endure through the good and the bad, Love doesn’t allow you keep a record of wrongs because that’s love…you’re supposed to give it in more measure than you receive.
This is because when you love, you’re meant to keep it constant despite the change in the weather. Even through the storm, you may take shelter to kind of shield yourself from the strong winds but you still stick around. Because, that’s what love does, it doesn’t give up no matter how intense the pain maybe.
Walking down memory lane has been so unbearable the past few weeks because everything along that path brought to mind happy moments that had slowly turned in to painful ones. All the images from the past were quietly getting blurry and the thought of it made my heart sink.
From the outlook i appeared to be jolly but deep down i was slowly falling apart and the fact that i couldn’t do much about it tore me to pieces. You know that moment when you see everything crumbling but the best you can do is just quietly stare and hope that somehow, it won’t hurt….guess what? It actually does….. it hurts so bad, that you can feel it to the last cell of your body.
Then suddenly, just as your about to let go of the last thread, Love reminds you to hold on a little longer and that truth slaps you in the face. Not because you are in shock but because your heart just won’t let go. And,the longer you live in denial, is the more you struggle because at the end of the day, the heart wants what it wants…that’s just a fact we’ve got to learn to live with.
That right there is where my lesson was….YOU DON’T GIVE UP ON THOSE YOU LOVE EACH TIME YOU GET HURT because, love holds on, enduring all things, believing all things and persevering all things (1 corithians 13:7).
LOVE NEVER FAILS….and remember, every experience whether good or bad, has a lesson to teach you. The question is, are you learning? Remember Love is God’s greatest commandment to us and as his children we ought to spread it all round.
