These past few months have had many challenges for me. I realize more and more every day that I need to tell myself repeatedly of the temporality of things seen. Also I am reminded that we sometimes neglect the fact that we are not on this earth just for our own satisfaction, but our lives impact others’ lives too. Every living material have a need for life… be it plants, animals or humanity. When we fill our constitution and composition with Life, we receive an overflow where we can impart that life into others. Ultimately it has little to do with our virtuousness, but with God’s elements being intermingled in our opus.
In August I met my remarkable boyfriend. The ironic thing is the fact that I went through a… can I call it 20’s, midlife crisis. Knowing my mental make-up, when I reach that stage I start believing all the baloney that is negative. I met my Thiart right in the core of that. He never judged my temporally self-inflicted psychosis, he just took me in the middle of that and loved me. It reminded me that God is so often like that with us. He takes us in our momentarily insanity and loves us… the key here is that He does not want us to stay in that state… but through that love we are brought to change. Also a willingness to change. I usually abhorrence the cliché: love conquers all… just because I think it is used too cheap. But in these past months I have experienced it practically… the life that we receive in that love leads to life.
I Corinthians 13 extract:
Love is patient, love is kind… It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres…Love never fails
