Courageous

I’ve watched two movies last night–October Baby and Courageous.  What a great monday night, right? 🙂

I was inspired to think about this on love:

Don’t worry about love, for love will find its way into the hearts of two people meant to be…trust that love will find its way 🙂

A love that you do not have to force.  That’s the beauty of love, it will happen on its own.  Staying in love takes commitment, though.  Loving a person is always painful because you’re opening up yourself to this person.  With this person you are vulnerable.  And as much as you want to, no one is perfect–everyone is flawed.  And these flaws hurt.  Except for the love of God.  God loves us and will never hurt us.  He may allow painful things to happen to us but it is always for our own good.  He only wants the best for us.  He will not let you cry by selfishness because He is selfless that He gave His life for us just to save us.  God’s love is restoring, refreshing, oh-so-good, it is gentle.  It is kind.  It is patient.  Read 1 Corinthian 13 and you will know the kind of love that God has for us.

In the final moments in October Baby movie, the girl was walking away from her father towards her dormitory with her boyfriend.  They were about to hold hands when the girl looked back first to her father then hold her boyfriend’s hand.  The girl loves her father more than she loves her boyfriend.  That’s how I would want to be if I enter into a relationship/marriage.  I want to keep God at the center–the first in my life, my One and Only God.  I don’t want to fall into idolatry.  I will always want to choose God over any other.
