To love and to be loved. Isn’t that the desire of every human heart? We want to know love, we want to taste and see it. We want to experience it in every form.
Our minds are enamoured by it, captivated. Movies sell it and we fantasize for hours, maybe even years about one day seeing the reality of it in our own lives.
The opportunity to love someone is the greatest gift and to be loved back, “oh how precious.”
What is it about love? Why does it have the capability to be the wind to our sails? The completing piece to our puzzle? To bring us from cloud 0, maybe even below, to cloud 9?
I think this is it. To love and to be loved is not only the desire of every human heart. But it is what every human heart was created for. It was designed to function that way from the beginning of time— on purpose.
What’s the purpose you might ask? I believe the purpose is to reveal the heart of God to every single human being on planet earth. And to give mankind the opportunity to respond back.
When things are done in love, they hit the front page of the news, they are posted on billboards, they can turn a regular man into the most famous and sought after, they have the capability of changing a once bitter heart into a heart soft and malleable.
The greatest acts of love have the power to change peoples perspective on humanity itself.
Everyone craves love because it is what we are made for. We were made to know the love of God and to respond to that love with our whole heart, soul, mind, and strength.
Ask yourself today: How can I open my heart up to loving someone in a whole new way? How can I let my heart grow bigger and greater and stronger to loving even when disappointment comes knocking at my door? How can I love with no hidden agenda?
That is true, pure love, in its finest form. It’s the growing kind.
