Brick by Brick

I have read a lot of frightening articles about relationships. You can barely define the word anymore. In an ever changing world, God hasn’t changed His definition. It is still the same.

Maybe we have forgotten what love is?

Firmly planted in my mind, was an idea of how I wanted to be loved. Based on parts that felt good in the past. I had to let all that go of my past beliefs, to receive what God had planned.

It didn’t look familiar, but there’s that connection you can’t deny. Maybe people are looking for that immediate connection, and get lost in it instead.

Are you a trustworthy person? Are you loyal? Do you strive to do the next right thing?

These attributes are what I call bricks, and helps build the foundation of the relationship.

What you have inside you, is what you have to offer. Be complete within yourself, and stop looking for someone to complete you. If you feel you’re missing something, or have a void inside, find that first.

For me, it was a God shaped void.

The day I asked God for help, He did, and I was made whole.

 

My unconditional love comes from God. He loves me no matter what, and forgives me when I mess up. I allow Him to mold me, and form me into what He wants me to be. It takes courage to allow someone to love you just the way you are.

To love and to be loved is the greatest gift of all. Time and patience. Brick by brick.
