Here it is! The last installment of my "Love" series for February.
The love that I am going to talk about to day is definitely the most important kind of loves out there.
God love, i.e. Agape.
No, no, not like "A Gape" one word. Agape. It probably has that little swish above the e, but I don't know how to make one, so...you'll just have to deal.
I think of it this way. How on earth would you be able to love anyone, anything, everything with out this kind of love first. God is who gave us our life, who gave us everything we have, everything we need, and who is the one person you can completely count on. He will be there with you through the hardships, through the most wonderful times. He will be there with you through everything.
Now this isn't a religious blog, at all. And nor do I want it to be. But I am posting this because I am a religious person.
I don't care if you are Catholic, Methodist, Evangelical, as long as you believe in God then I believe that you will go to heaven and have eternal life.
You can disagree, whatever, just don't comment with something rude.
God is my everything. Your everything. God IS everything.
That flower sitting outside your window? God made it.
The blue skies? God made it.
Your sister? God made her.
The cheez-it you are about to shove into your mouth? God made it.
He made everything. Do you understand that?
Without him, where would we be? We wouldn't be. There would be nothing.
I feel like so many people lose their faith based on petty things. "Why did God do this to me? If there was a God he wouldn't make my life so horrible. "
Horrible things happen to everyone. It's life. Do you not understand he is doing this to make us stronger, there is a reason for everything he does. Though you might not see it, if you have faith you shouldn't worry.
I feel like Courtney, here, summed it up pretty well.
"To me, God love is: knowing you'll never hear God say out loud he loves you, or send you flowers on your birthday, but in every blessing that he gives you in life, that unconditional love he has for each of us is proven again and again, as it also states in the Bible :)"
