Hi beautiful fam!
Happy New Month. 😘
I believe it’s going to be an awesome month! I’m working on some things and all shall be revealed in due time.
So today’s topic. I believe there was a time someone made this comment in one of my series and it got me thinking if Love is truly overrated.
Overrated, according to the Urban Dictionary, means to describe something that gets more hype and credit than it’s actually worth.
Do we place too much emphasis on love that it has lost it’s effect?
Is love really of no worth anymore?
Yes, I know the word has been abused numerous times by how we define it that we begin to wonder if the love someone has for us is real or just a one-off. That love won’t last and it is just a flimsy feeling. You can fall in love today and fall out of it the next day when the going gets tough.
Some romantic movies have made being in love so magical and wonderful so that if you’re single, you just want to find someone you can love and would love you the same way or even more. Or if you’re married and your love isn’t having that tingly, magical feel then there’s a problem.
Or maybe you’re from a broken home and you witnessed your parents argue, fight and eventually divorce, giving you the impression that love is really not what it seems.
Can we be honest with each other?
It’s the world we live in with all it’s ups and downs, disappointments, failures, divorces, broken homes, hurts and pains and so forth, that has made some of us see love as ordinary. Rubbish. Inconsequential.
Do we have a right to feel this way? Absolutely!
But don’t stay with that mindset for long. Infact, you can’t remain with that mindset when you encounter, or more of when the love of Christ, encounters you.
We, though, are going to love—love and be loved. First we were loved, now we love. He loved us first.
1 John 4:19 MSG
The love of Christ is too beautiful to comprehend. It’s a kind of love that leaves you awe-struck. It’s a love that makes you beautiful from the inside out. It’s a kind of love that leaves you refreshed and wipes away whatever previous knowledge of ‘love’ you had and walk in the love of God.
I’m not saying it’s going to be smooth all the way.
It may be inconvenient to love.
It could be tiring loving someone who hurts you over and over again.
You could feel cheated or silly loving someone who doesn’t deserve it.
Love is God’s nature. It is never and can never be OVERRATED to Him. It says in His Word,
If we give up on him, he does not give up— for there’s no way he can be false to himself.
2 Timothy 2:13 MSG
1 Corinthians 13:1-3, says we are NOTHING without love.
In these end times, the love of many would grow cold.
Truth is, that tingly feeling when you start loving someone, where it feels like you can float in the air (lol), comes easily. But as you grow in your relationship and as a couple you need to be more committed to keep that fire burning.
Be committed to your love.
Love is Not Overrated.
I believe we need to ask ourselves: What really is love?
So what do you think? Is love overrated?
💗 Bible Quote for the Day:
So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.
Romans 12:1-2 MSG
