Love is Hard..I know you’re probably thinking what? Love should be the easiest emotion to express! It’s true that falling in love is easy, but staying in love is a lot harder.
Do you remember your first love with Jesus? I’m sure many of us remember the first moment when we fell in love with Jesus, but is your fire with God still as strong as before? Your love for God should keep growing more and more.
I have to admit, I remember the times when my love for God was high, and times when I felt that God was far from my life. Its easy for our Love for God to be like a rollercoaster. Some days you love God so much, and other days you feel like God is far from you. But instead of having a rollercoaster relationship with God, we should keep our love for God soaring up into the sky without ever dropping. My new goal is to love God
My new goal is to love God more each day! I’m sure there will be bad days, but if we focus on God and trust in him, we can always pick up our feet and move ahead. We have to work on our Love with God by staying close to him daily and honoring and meditating his word. I feel like God is always great a bringing me back to him whenever I am far from him. I believe that God is always great at reminding and bringing people back to him when they are lost. This can happen from hearing something on the radio, listening to a sermon, or stumbling to an event that touches your heart.
I was reading 1 Corinthians and this common verse that I’m sure many people know came up; “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no records of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves.”(1 Corinthians 13:4-7). If you really think about this verse, the definition of “Love” sounds like a hard thing to do. But we need to love because without love, there is no hope or faith. Remember, “And now these three remain: Faith, Hope, and Love. But the greatest of these is Love.”(1 Corinthians 13) Faith, hope, and love are all connected to each other. You need love to have faith and hope. That is why we need to Love God to have faith and hope in him.
Marriage is another example that shows how love is hard. I’m sure when you first married your spouse you loved them. But what happened to that love? It’s easy to let our love walk away from us without us even realizing it. This same thing can happen with our Love for God. I am sure everyone had a point where they were on fire for the Lord, but what about now? Love is Hard and it takes work, but with God all things are possible!
So remember, work on your love with God!
