(T)his Love

Ever had that one person you’ve fought so hard for? That you did everything to keep that person? Your heart ablaze, your mind set. Justified in our heads that “I love (blank). (Blank) is worth it”.

Some years ago, someone did what it would take to win you back.
From enemy to child. From fallen to found. From rebel to royalty.

Some years ago, someone did what it would take to keep you and nothing can take you away from his love. Not your past. Not your fears. Neither death nor life, nor things present nor things to come,  nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation

He fought for you and I. He fought a good fight. He fought hard, fought on our behalf because we’ll never be in fighting form nor win left to ourselves. He fought death.

He gave his best on the cross, was buried and–proving He is the Son of God– rose three days later. He gave nothing less than what it would take to pay for, not his debts, but ours. To win YOU back, because YOU are worth it.

But now He’s close. And you are His again.

When we fought for that one person, we dropped everything, did whatever it would take. I pray that as we fight to keep God front and center of our lives, we set our eyes on doing whatever it takes to keep the Love of our lives. It would take a lot of trusting and faith, but worth it. May we fall in love everyday with he who is so in love with us.

Jesus replied, “You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.” -Matthew 22:37 (ESV)

  1. I love it, Joy! You’ve grown fast enough in your spirit. You are indeed fruitful and a blessing to others. I love how you portrayed the LOVE of Jesus to humanity. Of how HE’S been trying to win us despite our undeserving nature. GOD is the only definition of absolute love that can keep us alive with zeal. And we are so blessed to experience it. Anyway, just really wanna say, keep it up!
