1 John 4:7-8
7Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 8Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love
1 John 4:19
We love because he first loved us
1 Corinthians 13:4-7
4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
What we know and what we believe and what we really believe and what we do can all be different. We learn from our mistakes. I’ve just made a mistake that could be one of the biggest in my life. When angry some people kick a fuss, swear, break things: I keep quiet, because I know what I say will be out of emotions and reacting rather than responding. So my mistake came with reacting. There was a attempt to salvage what was done but I know it’s hard and what I did was severely inadequate. Keep those emotions at bay: let them loose and it’ll wreck havoc.
Life is funny how we try to be the type of person we envision. When you fall short of that or even find yourself becoming the person you never ever wanted to be like what do you do with yourself? Life is hard. Crying in despair can be inevitable. But life is full of learning. It’s amazing how I feel it’s hard to trust people yet here I am typing some of the things going on in my mind right now available to ‘anybody’. Friendship, or the type I envisioned, was something I never really got a hold of. One big mishap here, one act of trust betrayal there and many times of me staying closed and here we are today. We all have our hangups but yet we all still have to face life in its entirety. When things go wrong what do we do? I’ve been through the phase of moping around feeling sorry for yourself and being depressed. I’ve been there before and that achieves nothing except for self pity and a feeling of worthlessness. What we need to do is, hold on to our securities – and hold on tight.
5Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
