MOJO 482 ~ Love is Not What You Say ~

It used to drive me crazy when my husband would insist "love isn't a feeling, but an action."  I just could not for the life of me understand what he was trying to tell me.  As a young, insecure newly married woman, I thought my hubby should shower me with "I Love Yous" at every available moment.  As I have grown older and potentially wiser...  I finally think I understand.  Some people are better at showing how much they love you versus saying it.  And honestly, I believe the words "I Love You" have become so over used that when they are spoken...  well...  they lose their meaning.  How many of us say we "love" a new outfit, our new hairdo or the latest ice cream flavor?  Love is much deeper than that...  not something that two characters on a television show say 15 minutes into an hour program because they "just know."  Life and love is much messier...  more complicated and just plain confusing sometimes!  I often wonder how I even survived my late teens and early twenties.  We aren't equipped to really "know" what love is unless we have an intimate relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  He loved us passionately.  So passionately that He gave His life for us.  Did he have reservations?  The Bible tells us he cried out to His heavenly Father asking if the cup could be taken from him.  He was so stressed that he sweat drops of blood.  That is the kind of love He gave to us and the kind we should model.   Self sacrificing...  thinking of others...  and loving with all we have.
