Are there perfect words to capture love’s description? Is love a feeling? Desire? or Tangibility? May be we can know this by getting deeper into ourselves and hiding not a single thing in our hearts, and try to figure out not what we mean by love but how we could want love to be.
To me love is the strongest and most valuable term that I know of. Feelings changes depending with circumstances, desires dies once met, tangibility fades once out of our touch senses. This means none of the terms mentioned qualifies to describe love. This is ‘cause to me love is infinite, consistent, can be touched but not removable.
What does this mean?
Love has an end course. It always has an objective and never quits till this purpose is met. This end course is for the better of the candidate. It does not do things to please but to guard from unknown harm even if it means causing uneasiness to the candidate. It stays true to the course of end happiness of the candidate even when no sense can be made from present situations.
Love never gets bored, angry, or tired when the subject is repulsive. Although it’s for candidate’s betterness, it stays friendly and even show compassion. It is the greatest shepherd. It fights till it overcomes. When in love’s bosom there is no fear of disappointment, frustration, forsakenness, or any negativity.
It never entrusts anyone or anything with its subject. It takes full responsibility ‘cause its reason of existence is this candidate. It knows the subject from inside out, including the next untaken step or unthought thought. It gives itself fully to the candidate; its strength, eyes, ears… I mean everything it owns. Mark you, love has everything its candidate needs. This is ‘cause it has no other reason for its existence if it’s not for its subject. So, it fits perfectly to its candidate.
Love pursues till it has won the attention and accessibility of its subject. Remember it’s love, so it has to be loved in the end. It makes sure that after achieving this, when the subject looks back can only praise its perfection.
What does this mean?
We can only find our peace, joy, rest, trust, assurance, wealth, and all we need for completion at our love’s bosom. It is so definite that we cannot find our love in our fellow human beings ‘cause: they are still trying to figure out who they are and what to do in order to fit in society and environment, they are still learning to love themselves so they cannot offer what they already do not have, they change with circumstances, they live with what they can see, and lastly, they die.
It is also true to say that objects cannot be our love because they are finite.
This leaves Jesus Christ as our only choice of perfect love. He fits in every way. His only course is to take care of us, give life when dead, heal when sick, guide us when lost, be our strength when weak, and give us: rest, laughter, peace, joy, clarity, victory… in order to complete us. He knows us more than we know ourselves. He never entrusts anyone or anything with us not even ourselves. He gave up everything in heaven to come and die for us in order to have life that we lost through our rebelliousness.
If He starts pursuing you, you better give up early ‘cause you will never outdo Him. In the end, you will look back and praise His perfection and even acknowledge that nothing else could have saved and completed you apart from Him. You end up loving Him more and more.
