Love is just one word...
..Just one..you heard?
Four simple letters L-O-V-E, yet so powerful..
And I ask the world, What is Love?
And the world responds, Love is:
Money you can drown in
Sex, you can fornicate in
Drugs, you inhale in
Parties you can die in
Gangs you can join in
And then I ask God, what is Love:
And he replies:
My love is not a definition in the dictionary
My love is not Money, sex, drugs, parties, or even gangs
My love is not a word I toss around like a wave in the ocean
My love for you is not JUST an emotion
My love is an action, That I actually did.
My love is spelled all over that cross
That my son died on for you, even though it cost me a loss.
And then I ask myself:
Which love should I believe in?
..again, which love should I believe in?
But before I even blink the world takes me in
promising me that the love they show me is actually sin.
They teach me that being virgin is wrong
My home boys tell me to lay a girl just like a Jay Z song.
They teach me that sticking the finger down my throat in November is Okay,
because then I willl be a size zero in May
They also hook me up with the love of my life
but He will just dance with me and not make me his wife.
They also addict me to video games that teach me how to kill
But in reality, those games are just showing me how to execute Satan's will
Being manipulated into society's mentality.
Was only making me end up in total fatality.
And after the world was done loving me they threw me out.
Yeah, I guess I picked the wrong route.
And so I thought I had no love to believe in
because who would love all these scars on my skin?
who would love my anxiety and depression?
who would love my anorexic disorder?
Or my self esteem that's below the zero percent border?
Most of all who would love my broken pieces,
that time will not mend for it always decreases.
Then I heard a voice from above say:
I do..I do
I don't love what you're going through
But I love you..
And if you don't believe it then read it
Go to John 3:16
For it was you that I had to redeem
when I told you My love is not a word I toss around like a wave in the ocean
I meant it, because no..my love is not just an emotion
When the world hurt you,
you felt like no one could understand the pain you knew.
But I stood in the wind, I stood in the waters, and I stood in the fire
And don't be scared of my love because I am not a liar.
So I come again to tell you that I love you
and I came to rescue you.
How could I not? For I created you.
Those eyes that have cried, Yea I created those too.
So don't give up.Don't give up on school,don't give up on your parents,Don't give up on your life,don't give up on hope but
most of all don't give up on love.
My love is one you can not just shove.
My love is Forever, you heard?.. Forever.
I have been crucified with Christ;
and it is no longer I who live,but Christ lives in me;
and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by
faith in the Son of God, who loved me,
and delivered Himself up for me.
I, Myself encourage you to keep on going
Look for his love not the world's sting
Don't wait to be perfect.
Because God looks at you through the eyes of love.
And for those who are saved in Christ,
Don't spread the Religion, Spread his love.
because it is love that's going to save the world..
Remember God says:
I look at you through the eyes of LOVE..
