Is Love Really Enough?

Inspired by the ongoing argument over whether Love is enough or not, I thought it cool to say a few things in defense of Love.

And for the sake of understanding, it is important to note my assertions are based on Love having more to do with intentionality than it has to do with our feelings and whatever one may want when they say “I love you”.

So, to the Crux of the matter…

Granted, loving as we should doesn’t necessarily guarantee a successful blissful romantic relationship all by itself.

Regardless of how lofty the intentions to make the other person happy, it must often require the agreement of both parties to make it work. A matter of choice, so to speak, either to accept or spurn the Love shared.

Crazy In Love With Scandal…

Just the other day, my dear friend Iris, opened up to me about why she couldn’t bear watching certain TV shows for their flagrant display of adultery.

Regardless of how popular they’d become, Scandal and Power seemed topmost on her list considering how many times she picked on those two.

She was resolutely unyielding in accepting the idea that it is now “modern” to break your marriage vows, especially when it makes you happier – giving you a chance at a truer and more exhilarating relationship with somebody else, who’s supposedly better and more compatible than your once precious and unequaled significant other.

There are three opposing forces I struggle each day to subdue: the devil, the world’s system, and myself.

It is terrible. I am like single-mindedly bent on destroying myself with my array of self-pleasing agendas. Not that I don’t know the life to live, yet I seem more drawn to the death of me.

IT’S BEEN ABOUT MESSING UP & DITCHING GOD…

God never stops caring about us even when we think He should. Especially at times when we might have turned our backs on Him, usually because we want to have our way over His. Yes, He still gets involved in our lives even when we’ve gone all rebellious on Him, for the simple reason that we still belong to Him.

We may never see His hands in the thick of things, because we may be, in mind and spirit, too far away to see. For it is so easy to get carried away by our defiance and the negative reality created by the choice to lean on our own understanding and thereby unconscious about how things are being worked out in the background for our recovery.

APTOPIX Nicaragua Santo Domingo

In sharing my testimonies of rebellious escapades against God, I would say it is at that very moment of realizing fully my stupidity I think the culmination of all that God has worked out for my deliverance becomes glaringly vivid in waking me back to my senses, in a way that I can’t help but acknowledge God’s Love – relentless and sufficient.
