Do you really know what true love is? True love is unconditional love that always believes and desires God’s best for you. True love is unconditional love. True love is the fulfillment and revelation of God’s unconditional love towards you. True love is a spiritual love that is a never-ending, consistent and is the fulfillment of all other loves. True love never fails. It is a love that makes you secure during times of uncertainty. It is a love that does not abandon you when your weaknesses are exposed. It is a love that will always give selflessly because it wants you to be whole in your mind, soul, spirit and body unveiling your authentic self.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 defines love as:
Love is kind and patient, never jealous, boastful, proud, or 5 rude. Love isn’t selfish or quick-tempered. It doesn’t keep a record of wrongs that others do. 6 Love rejoices in the truth, but not in evil. 7 Love is always supportive, loyal, hopeful, and trusting. 8 Love never fails!
Lust is the worldly kind of love that is enjoyable at first because it immediately seeks to be gratified and to gratify. Lust is a deceitful love that presents itself as authentic love. Lust is selfish instead of selfless and will be gratifying at the beginning but terrifying and heartbreaking when it is done with you. Lust will leave you confused, misused and abused with feelings of hurt, disappointment, regret and feelings of unworthiness. Lust will leave you feeling like a bottomless pit that only true love will be able to restore. The world normally believes in “love at first sight”, however, whenever we love by sight that love will end in pain because it is not rooted in true love. When we love by sight that love is temporal which means it was never really love at all. When you hear songs by people who claim love hurts, they unknowingly are referring to the worldly kind of love known as lust. Only lust hurts your soul without the purpose of healing your spirit.
Lust does not satisfy like love does. Lust is like a soda that is good to the taste but is toxic to your mind and body. If you consume soda everyday and plenty of times throughout the week like water, then it will leave you with an uncontrollable sugar addiction and dehydrated. Love is like water that hydrates and replenishes the health of your mind and body because it is one with your mind and body.
True love purpose is to heal and restore you. True love fulfills all promises and heals all pain. When you experience this kind of love you have encountered the true love of God coming in the body of a person. God wants us to experience true love in all our relationships, but especially the relationship with a man who you will choose as your husband. A husband that shares the same heartbeat of God towards you.
True love is always consistent even when people and situations change because true love is eternal. True love is the image and likeness of God’s love living in a person. When a man has been made whole by true love he is ready to share true love with you. Until you are done with desiring lust in a relationship, you will not be ready to experience true love in a committed relationship. God wants to give you His best and His best is true love. God’s best is His love being expressed to you through the man He knows will love you like He loves you.
