“Love don’t run, love don’t hide. It won’t turn away or back down from a fight”. I love these song lyrics. It was written about the love between two people. But as I thought about them today, I thought about how God’s love doesn’t run either. It is always there, even when we choose to run from it or don’t see it, it is always, always there. He promised us of this. The bible tells us ‘the greatest of these is love”. I believe it whole heartedly. It is truly the greatest gift God can give us. Not just from Him but the gift of giving and receiving love from people in our lives as well.
If you are fortunate enough to have been loved or given love in this way, then you have been blessed. When someone sees you at your worst, your breaking point and still opens their arms and says I love you, no matter what, that is love in it’s greatest form. Unconditional. How God meant for it to be. Maya Angelou once said “A woman’s heart should be so hidden in God that a man has to seek Him just to find her.” This is true. How can a man love a woman in the way God intended if he doesnt believe in God himself? I truly believe that you have to have God in your life and heart to experience the same kind of love that He has for all of us. The kind that doesn’t run.
