“What love really means….”

“What Love Really Means….”

In the past few weeks since posting JJ Heller’s song called “Love Me (What Love Really Means),”(click the link to read it) I have had an overwhelmingly large number of people visiting this site searching for that song.  What I found is that not only did this song touch me deep within, but this song has touched many others.

We are all searching for love in ways that the world cannot provide, and we feel so burned out from all of our failed attempts.  The only refrain that have the energy to cry out is

Who will love me for me?

Not for what I have done or what I will become

Who will love me for me?

Because nobody has shown me

What love really means.

God is the only one that can show us what love really means because…

“GOD IS LOVE…” 1 John 4:8

The only way that we will ever love ourselves is when we get past the point of needing to love ourselves.  This may seem contradictory to what we usually believe, but here’s why I say that.  For years, I have been trying to tell myself, “Sarah, you just need to finally love yourself enough to take care of your body and eat right and exercise, etc.”  The problem with this though, is that I get sooooo incredibly focused on my own inability to love myself that I don’t even see the lesson of love that God is trying to teach me.

BUT, GOD…

God is love.  To love ourselves is to realize that God loves us more than we can imagine!  He loves you, and He loves me!  All other love on this earth comes from His initial love.  That’s what 1 John 4 is trying to teach us.  We cannot love ourselves until we realize that God is the one that gives us this love in the first place.

God says to you everyday, “I will love you for you, not for what you have done or what you will become.  I will love you for you.  I will give you the love, the love that you never knew.”

Empty your mind of all your pain, hurt, fear, and insecurity.  Forget of your own inability and your need for love and open yourself up to feel the love that God has for you.  Everyday, take time to dwell in this love.  It won’t be easy, and it will take much prayer to thwart the devil’s attempts to close up your heart again, but just accept God’s love.  You are precious in His eyes, and He loves you more than you can ever imagine…
