I wanna know what love is!

Love, to be loved, oh what a feeling to be loved. And then what? We all want to be loved and accepted and cherished but once you get all of that what do you do with it?
We all crave unconditional love, the kind of love that is spoken about in Corinthians but are we willing to make someone comfortable enough in our love to receive it? Love is not just saying the words, it requires the actions that go with it.

I bet you are saying huh? What is she talking about?

Well, unconditional love is defined as a love that does not require conditions. If you only love someone when they act the way you have decided is right, that’s not unconditional love. If you only love someone when the love you give is reciprocated in kind, that’s not unconditional love. If you only love someone if they look exactly like you like them to look and do the things you have defined as “perfect”, that’s not unconditional love.

I’m asking you to open your heart to a love that changes you, that allows you to love others in a way that is freeing and beautiful. As you trust God more and more you will realize that he can do what we can’t, his love allows us to love others the way we want to be loved.. unconditionally..

“But I tell you, love your enemies. Pray for those who treat you badly. If you do this, you will be children who are truly like your Father in heaven. He lets the sun rise for all people, whether they are good or bad. He sends rain to those who do right and to those who do wrong. If you love only those who love you, why should you get a reward for that? Even the tax collectors do that. And if you are nice only to your friends, you are no better than anyone else. Even the people who don’t know God are nice to their friends.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5:44-47‬ ‭ERV‬‬

Trust that God knows what love is ..

“Yes, I am sure that nothing can separate us from God’s love—not death, life, angels, or ruling spirits. I am sure that nothing now, nothing in the future, no powers, nothing above us or nothing below us—nothing in the whole created world—will ever be able to separate us from the love God has shown us in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:38-39‬ ‭ERV‬‬

  1. Can you truly love someone if you are not 100% healed and fully love the person in the mirror?

    1. Not truly, no.. you have to heal and love yourself because out of your self love and your acceptance of love are you are able to love unconditionally. God tells us that love has to be unconditional.. I truly learned what love meant when I had to look at my husband and accept him for he who was, not who I wanted him to be or some made up person. Once I did that I asked myself could I still love him and the answer was yes.. we both grew exponentially.. know when he doesn’t respond the way I think he should, the Holy Spirit reminds me to keep loving him. It takes you and God

      1. I’m trying Sis. I am.
