I have been wondering why I am enthused about this year’s Valentine’s day when in actual facts I shouldn’t be. Just when I almost gave up on the thought, I realised why. With the changing scenes of life and everything I have been through so far, I have come to appreciate God’s unbeatable love for me and humanity.
Over the years, I had wrong perceptions about love and all the dictates of love. It was an inner struggle I had to deal with. I wonder why I unconsciously and consciously hurt some people. To those who fall in this category, I honestly ask for your forgiveness. To those I bled on unnecessarily, I am sincerely sorry.
However, I had my share of disappoints. Some were light while one hit me so hard it got me thinking. But the goodnews is that it was at this moment I came into the knowledge of God’s love. It gave me comfort, hope and assurance. I had to free myself from the misconception of love and its related issues and I am glad I can say confidently that love is beautiful and it is worth every sacrifice.
1Corinthians 13:1-13 talks about love from start to finish but 1Corinthians 13:4 and 1Corinthians 13:13 are just life changing. In God’s love we measure love. If your love can go through the spectacles of 1Corinthians 13, then you are free to say, “I love you”
Have a great Valentine’s day with a basket full of love. Happy Chocolate Day. If there’s any counsel I would love to share with you today, it will be that there are dimensions of love. Please, don’t restrict yourself to romantic love only. You will miss the beauty of other dimensions of love if your focus is on just an aspect of love. Thank you
