❝Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you; bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones.❞
❝Everything ends, because nothing is forever while you are alive. The only honest promise of forever exists after death, that being the promise of eternal life in Heaven or eternal life in Hell. The true love that lasts forever we hopelessly and hopefully long for has already been given to us. That love is the love God has for us. A love that endures forever, that never fails or comes with conditions. God’s love is free and has been instilled in the makings of our beings. We are not star dust or empty souls. We are not just flesh and bones.
We are love; created with it, made for it.
The love lasts forever and maybe, God forbid, you are sent to hell this does not mean God didn’t love you. God loves you and he loves you enough to give you truth, even if the truth is a painful consequence. What is love if it is not of truth? After all, Hell only opens it’s mouth to gulp you if you refuse to let love be at the center of your soul. Let love, God’s love breathe from the center of your soul, your life and you never have to flinch at the gates of hell, you never have to look for love, you never have to wonder about love, and love will abound you.
We roam the world searching for a love, that will make us whole and fill our empty hearts, through others and things that don’t last forever. God’s love lasts forever and God’s love is what fills us up. This does not mean falling in love bound by marriage is hopeless, this means people don’t last forever, souls do. That is why you vow to “love until death do [you] part.” People are flesh and bone, love is soul. That is why when we die, our body rots into the earth. Our bodies do not go to heaven and hell, our souls go there; forever.
Love never ends. And a love that never ends is a love from God. God loves you. God loves you, love him back with the fullness of your being, not in empty words, and his love will manifest through you.❞
