Real talk guys. This week I have been forced to accept the truth about how I love, and I realized that I know even little about love than I thought I did.
Through the word of God, we get an Insight on the love of God, we see how he walks with us and does not discriminate, but most especially we learn about how he forgives us even before we ask, in fact even before we turned away from him, and then we may want to compare it with the conditional, materialistic love that human share. Indeed, we have a long way to go in order to be Christ-like.
As stated in the beginning, I want to keep it real. If holding grudges were a course in school, I would get a A++. Unfortunately for me, I happen to be really good at it, and this exactly the toxic energy I am trying to rid from my life. The word of God says; Guard your heart and I hear him whisper to me especially saying; Idara, for your sake, guide your heart. This is no coincidence because anger is a desire of the flesh, and what I do is that I give people three chances of redemption, after the chances are used up, they become dead to me. No matter how deep our friendship is, I could slowly erase anybody like we didn’t know each other for over fifteen years. I am so good at it and it hurts me so much because that is not the person I want to be anymore.
I want to take an example from my Lord Jesus Christ, this was someone who was persecuted solely because he created the world, and loved his creation. I see God’s amazing love in my life every time because it is in his nature, and if Christ could love me just for being me, then I could love everybody for being themself. Right now, I am in the headspace where I know that I need to consciously place God’s love over self-love, and flee far far away from unforgiveness, and anger.
At the end of the day, it all boils down to pride, the seed that sprouts stubbornness in my heart. For the most part, I am an extremely sensitive person, so I use pride, or rather pride uses me to make up for it but the truth is, I just want to lay it down at the cross of my saviour, and walk away with nothing attached to me. I need God’s love like I need to breath and I need to love like God, for if not for his love, my life would have been over before it even began.
A love above all
Never-ending beauty of renaissance
To err is human, for forgiveness is divine.
Speaking of redemption, the Super eagles came through today at the world cup. Ahmed Musa is the only Nigerian player with the most goals in world cup history. Let’s keep it up.
