Love is not complicated.
Love is simple.
But it’s difficult, and people confuse the two.
Simply – love means always, unconditionally, no matter what.
There’s nothing confusing about that.
The problem is – it’s hard.
When he hurts you, it’s hard to love.
When she’s difficult, those three words are costly.
When you’re tired, love doesn’t come easily.
When it’s not fun anymore, when you aren’t “feeling” it, when you’re distracted by something more shiny and new…
Love is hard.
Love is action fueled by choice.
Feelings aren’t enough to sustain love.
Choice – “I love you”
Action – I love you
Always, unconditionally, no matter what.
The other day, Brynna and I said ‘goodbye’ to Daddy and went for a walk. Fifteen minutes later, Daddy already missed us and came to join the fun. As though she hadn’t just been with him, Brynna took off running, yelling, “Daddy here I come!” God loves you so much that any time apart sends Him clamoring back for more. He’s waiting at the end of your steps to pick you up and carry you the rest of the way. Always. Unconditionally. No matter what.
