Tale As Old As Time…

“… true as it can be. Barely even friends then somebody bends unexpectedly..”

I have no idea how my love story is being written. All I know is that it is being written by the most excellent, most incredible Storyteller of all time. And for that I have more than enough reason to be sure it will be as brilliant as He only knows it can be. And truth be told, I love it best when He does all these things. Surprises & all. 

February, as we know, is considered love month. I’ve never been lured into celebrating this month ever since I can remember. But I thought of putting up an entry in the hopes of declaring True Love.

Tune As Old As Song…

You ever notice how every love story begins? Isn’t it curious that it all starts out the same? It comes in many different ways and forms but it has always been boy meets girl. They both start out hopeful, gets desperate, and then, did you notice how it usually ends? It always ends either one of two ways. They either decide to give up and fall apart, or live to continue what was started come what may.

Can you identify which part of the story you’re in?

Sometimes it can get really frustrating. You try so hard, you give it everything you’ve got, only to get nothing in return, only to be rejected. Or you both do everything you can to salvage a relationship but nothing just ever seems to work out. 

You start to question everything. You try to make sense of all the pain, frustration, sorrow until it seems the only logical thing to do is to give up, let go, accept that nothing will change. Accept that the end has finally come. Accept that there’s nothing more either of you could do about how bad things have become. 

Bittersweet And Strange…

And then the morning comes reminding us that everything is made anew each sunrise. Suddenly, you realise that the person you loathe now isn’t really anyone else but yourself.

It would seem that the person who made all the mistake isn’t him or her but you. It’s not that you can’t forgive the other person. It’s easy to forgive others of their mistakes.

You realise the truth is that you are having a hard time forgiving them for having seen every tiny bits and pieces of the mistakes you committed. 

Beauty And The Beast

You begin to see that the other Person has always been patient, willing to wait, ready to accept everything about you and help you in and with anything. 

You wonder how can Someone be so understanding of your feelings, mood swings, foul temper, impatience. Why did He ever choose to be with you? What has He seen in you that’s even worth laying eyes on? How bizarre, unbelievably incredible, mind-blowing can it really be that Someone would want to spend eternity with someone like you? 

The idea of a love story between a man and a woman is something I will always be delighted to hear. But the love story between the Maker and his creation, now that is something I always marvel at. Someone offering his very life to prove how much He loves me. The Father giving His only Son that I could be with Him from here and for all time? This writing will never give justice to its incredibly beautifully written story.

I realise time and time again that He is the Beauty. And I… I am the beast

Justifying Mistakes

imagesWe live in a generation of people who take pride of justifying their mistakes instead of correcting them. In their minds, “I’ve already made this mistake. Might as well bury myself in this mud.”

They are lost in their imaginings of jumping on a quicksand and being taken by all the mud when the truth is the mud is not nearly knee high. But they are so determined to drown themselves in all the liquid dirt that’s actually hard to be drowned with especially when you are wide awake, and we all know acting like you’re being pulled down to the bottom is not just stupid but is really insane because no one can pull you down there but yourself.

Why people do that to themselves is beyond me. Well, it’s the enemy’s way of distracting you from living your life the way God wanted you to, that’s what I know. But I will not be one to presume I know the solution to this absolutely pathetic dilemma. Then again, I’ve always been a believer of God and of his Son, Jesus Christ.

I believe that acting like you’re being drowned when really you’re the only one drowning yourself in the mud is a complete disregard of what JESUS did at the cross of Calvary especially if you are someone who profess to know what He did and love Him for what He did.

If you’ve accepted Jesus Christ in your heart before but now you see that you are one who’s in the description above, I invite you to recommit yourself to God. Admit that you have sinned. Repent from your sins. Believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that He died on the cross for your sins. Ask Jesus in your heart once again.

In my honest opinion, it’s the only way to go. Stop justifying your mistakes. Understand that no one else can save you from yourself but Jesus. No one else but Jesus. Just Jesus.
