We can love everyone, but we can only fall in love with one
Times flies, and we are almost on the last lap for our final year in school. It’s amazing how such coincidence brought us together. I still rmbr feeling disappointed when I knew you wouldn’t be there for the jamming session. Oh the memories. I know this period is gonna be tough, but I know it’s all the doings and plans of the Mighty One above. It is to make us stronger, for a better tomorrow, for your enlistment. Now that I think back, God is indeed great for preparing both of us for your enlisting. Of course, he only gives the toughest battles to his toughest soldiers, which I believe that’s who we are, together as a team. They said: “It’s always easy to find someone to love, to pour out all your love to. But it was never easy to find someone who reciprocate the same feelings back at ya.” For this, I really thank God for you, for all your love for me. The times when everyone around me seem to have given up on me, you held me and told me that it’s all ok, and no matter what you’re always here with me. For times when you’re completely honest to me about my flaws, and helping me improve that, and continue loving me despite that. I wouldn’t wanna lose a gem like you. Thank you for being you, and thank you for you loving me as I am. Here’s to us for a few more months of not-seeing-other-so-frequently, but we-know-we-can-make-it-through, with God’s grace. I love you, till our infinity together xx
Constantly reminding myself.
by Joyce Meyer
When Jesus talked about the greatest commandment of all, He quoted Deuteronomy 6:5 and said we are to love God with all our heart. But He also added the second greatest commandment: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. (See Mark 12:31.)
There’s something important here that I think people often miss: You cannot give away something you don’t have in you. How can someone love another person if they don’t love themselves?
We all need to accept ourselves, embrace our personalities and even our imperfections, knowing that although we are not where we need to be, we are making progress. Jesus died for us because we have weaknesses and imperfections, and we don’t have to reject ourselves because of them. God wants us to love ourselves and enjoy how He’s made us!
