What does “love” look like? I was talking to God the other day and He asked me that question.
. . .
Well… it looks like spending time with someone.
— then spend time with someone.
And, it looks like research.
— then get to know someone. Really learn about them, their heart, their desires, what matters to them.
And, it looks like sacrifice.
— then, give up that thing that is standing in your way [from doing the above]
It seems so hard. I mean to really love. If feels beyond my ability.
— It is a marathon, not a sprint. Learning to really love takes time. It is a journey that requires healing and compassion and trust. It doesn’t happen all at once. Stop beating yourself up. Make the decision to head down this path. And remain open and mindful of “what love looks like” to you.
Maybe Love isn’t as far away as it seems.
What does love look like to you? Would you be willing to have this conversation with God?
Try it and see where it leads. I’d love to hear what he says to you.
