My conversation with God!
“Why if I walk in Your will, I need to face all this?” I complained. “If same is the reward for the right and wrong, then why not do the wrong and keep my soul happy as well (like others)? Yesterday Your Son called out, today I cry out to You, why have You forsaken me, Lord?”
“I go to church every Sunday, I try my best not to hurt anyone from my end, I struggle not to lie, I haven’t murdered anyone till date, I respect You Lord, I do not steal anything from anybody, I love everyone, then why me? Is there anything better I could have done to please You?” I was all broken.
Out came a hand to reach my head. Slowly it slipped down to pat my back. And there came a silent smile on His face.
“Do you not know that I punish all those whom I love?
I know you go regularly go to the church, but do you spiritually seek my presence?
I know you don’t want to hurt anybody, but is it possible that unknowingly some are hurt by you?
I know you try hard to keep my commandments, but do you not know that if you keep nine of them and miss one—you still stay away from me?
You say you love all and yes you do my child, I know. But aren’t you still holding grudges against those who have hurted you?
My child, didn’t I teach you to forgive and forget? Love is forgiving.”
That day He taught me what is love.
Love is knowing someone (Mix-up with others—they might be needing you)
Love I letting someone know you (Don’t keep things to yourself)
Love is giving someone (Give because you are given by God)
Love is caring for someone (You might make someone feel special)
Love is sharing with someone (Share the Good News)
Love is smiling with someone (Your smile might just make someone’s day)
Love is crying with someone (Cry with those who cry)
Love is also crying for someone (Life is not always fair)
Love is listening to someone (Someone might be feeling low in their soul)
Love is having something listened by someone (Grow & help grow)
Love is losing someone (God has right to take things away that He has given us)
Love is hiding tears from someone (Don’t make someone feel they are disappointing)
Love is struggling for smile in front of someone (Make them feel they are good people)
Oh My Heart, What is Love?
Love is a commitment (Do it wholeheartedly and without ceasing.)
Love is a feeling for someone (love is true, love is pure, make it glow all the way for sure)
All this seems to be so easy for the ones whom we already love or whom we know newly, but how do we go about loving our enemies?
You might say, “but, I don’t have any enemies!”
Dear friend, by not loving someone s/he is as good as an enemy.
The key to love your enemy – FORGIVE
This is His will for you. Then and then only we will be forgiven as well.
