The greatest love that has crossed man’s eye isn’t one of butterflies running around your stomach or goosebumps growing on arms.
Much less, it isn’t one that steals kisses in the dark of the night or stealthily touches parts private.
It has never been about enviable PDA nor sharing a glass of wine at the same spot.
Love in all its fullness is the mystery of what beheld the cross
When the person of God inhabited the human form and took the walk of shame amidst squandering words and 5 days hatched spittle.
When blood from a sarcastic beating kissed the very pine, cedar and cypress he had put to existence.
In that moment when Heaven turned away and silence filled the earth.
Love is not the comforting words from a mere human that announces his love to get remarks of awwh and a few tears sprawling down the cheeks of a cheering crowd
Love is not what the public shall feed on, it is the vows of integrity and chastity put to test in private~~ where it is void of light and temptation looms brightest.
Love is knowing that when darkness covered the earth, God cried!
It is knowing that when the Heavens rumbled, it was a sign of a disgruntled lover not willing to give up a part of his soul that had been snatched the day, the council had agreed “Let us make man in our very own image”.
See the most un-debatable truth is this;
It is one thing to stumble upon love but a totally different thing to have molded the person with whom you fall in love with.
With every curve to your being and all the flaws and scars that you keep pinching at in disdain, He said “I will love you to the end of time and not even the gates of hell shall prevail against this love”. With His heart, He has unconditionally given us a promise;
Nothing can separate you and I~~Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
