Dude, I don’t know if anybody told you, but we have this little thing called physics.
I had to reblog this again…
Attraction is first born at the moment someone laughs, or you get to know them and see them for who they are, it also arrives when we see the other person and their beauty is pleasing to you. Love is born the moment two people seek the best in one another, when it becomes a choice to further that person in the goals and journey of their life.
We can confuse attraction for love, because attraction can turn our heads and leave us thinking about that person, but love renews our hearts and changes our lives. There is a fine line between the two, it is up to us to discern what that line is and how far we are willing to see where it goes, for we will realize that attraction is shorter than we first thought and that we will find many more lines that we find attractive. Love forces us to choose to continue following its line, sometimes we grow tired and we see the other line, but we must remember that we have chosen the best line, the best journey, for true Love will always lead us to the cross and what Christ did; For He is the truest of all loves, and to follow Him, is to follow life to its completion.
Our relationship with Christ is one that is meant to be active. We don’t just surrender our burdens, we pursue Jesus in spite of our pain.
Mud washes away when we dive into the water, darkness flees in the glory of light, and our sin is released in the company of Christ. No other way will free us from the struggles of our own depravitity, no other soul can ignite ours like Christ; He must be followed, no matter the cost.
I hope to teach my children to never worry about circumstances, that if you have a broken down car; then you’ll be fine. That if you are lonely, you will be okay. That if your day is just not going as planned, then maybe God had different plans?
Circumstances will never end us; therefore I don’t want them to control us.
I pray that I can instill that into my future children.
