“Love so undeniable I can hardly speak,
Peace so unexplainable I can hardly think”
It is true that when you encounter Jesus, you will eventually understand love and how to love.
Every night, since last week, I keep listening to only 3 songs namely: (1) Sila by SUD, (2) ‘Wag Ka Nang Umiyak by Ebe Dancel & KZ Tandingan, and (3) Good Good Father – Housefires II. I cry a few buckets every time I hear these songs. It is as if I’m purging all the pain that I gained over time.
I mourn because I loved and lost. However, God used the incident to reveal something new about the Gospel in my heart. Though it is painful, God is a good Father. He comforts those who goes to Him.
If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,but do not have love, I gain nothing. (1 Corinthians 13:1-3 NIV)
Even if I failed and was not forgiven by a person, I know in my heart that I loved that person so dearly and it was God who sustained the love within me; this is enough. In God’s eyes, I have gained and won over a thousand folds.
I praise You, God, my Father, for loving me so deeply that I couldn’t stop loving people and it’s in their discretion to stay or flee from it but I know that it is a courageous act to do and it honors You. Thank You for teaching me by example, God!
