You can’t force love.

July 30, 2019

“Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings.” Psalms 17:8, NIV.

When it comes to love, you want the kind that comes naturally, not love that is forced. Maybe there’s someone in your life that you love a great deal, but they don’t feel the same way you do and it makes you want to change in order to keep them interested.

The thoughts in your mind may say, “I can make them love me. I can change and become whatever they want me to be. I can change careers, change my hair, get plastic surgery, have their child, leave everything I know and change the way I behave. They will love me; I just have to…” You shouldn’t have to change yourself to get love. If God loves you just how you are, anyone He sends your way will also love you just how you are.

At the heart of real love is acceptance. Anything you have to change to get, you will have to constantly change in order to keep. Love is most beautiful when it is unforced and not manipulated. Let love happen by God’s divine orchestration. Whatever He sends your way He will give you the grace and wisdom to handle. You may not be the apple of someone’s eye just yet, but you are surely the apple of God’s eye. You may not have a David Jonathan kind of friendship just yet, but you have one with God. He loves you in every state and in every season. He took off His priestly garments and wrapped you in robes of righteousness. You will never be able to reach the bottom of God’s love for you!

Until someone can love you even remotely close to that kind of love, honey they don’t deserve you.

Prayer: Father God, thank You for speaking to my heart. I know You love me. Help me know it in a deeper way. Deal with the deeper fears in me and shine your light on every false view I have of myself. I deserve real love and I trust You. In Jesus Name, Amen.

    Do you mind if I quote a few of your articles as long as I provide credit and sources back to your weblog?
    My website is in the very same niche as yours and my users
    would certainly benefit from a lot of the information you provide here.
    Please let me know if this alright with you. Many thanks!

    I’ve been browsing online more than three hours
    these days, but I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It’s pretty price enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made
    good content as you probably did, the internet will likely be much more useful than ever before.

    I’m curious to find out what blog system you have been using?
    I’m having some small security problems with my latest website and I would like
    to find something more safe. Do you have any recommendations?
