Reflections: True Love

A red heart appears in the center. Text that appears across the heart reads Reflections true love

Love, this word seems to be thrown around a lot. When we hear the word love we probably immediately think of a romantic relationship especially now in February with Valentine’s day coming up. The truth is that love is much more than that. There is the love of a parent, the love of a brother or sister or the love of a friend. The most important love of all is the love of God. 

When you do not feel love from anyone you can find that love by looking to God. For God loved you first.

John 3:16 KJV — For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

A relationship will not provide the love that truly fills your heart, only the love of God is enough to fill your heart. The only way you can love another person is if you truly experience love yourself and that is only found in God. People think they can find it from within or from someone else or from material items but none of that works.

Any love that you have in you was put there by God. The way a mother loves her newborn, that love comes from God, when a husband truly honors his wife, that comes from God.

God is the source of true love and running from him will only lead to tragedy at the end. So for those that feel alone today please remember you are not alone. God loves you and wants to fill you with his love and prepare you to give that love to others around you.

I hope that you look to God first for love instead of continuing to look in all the wrong places and he will lead you to the best place you should be in life.
