Love Can Be A Cross

 

Love Can Be A Cross

In the midst of the turmoil
Tearing at your soul
Where do you go lost one?
Where do you run?
 
To the false filling of
Fear-shame-guilt-and blame
Pouring into your soul
Destroying the real destiny you hold.
---Excerpt from Run to Me
 
As my soul was in turmoil from the pain of an unresolved hurt, the question had been posed to me - "Will I forgive the one who hurt me?"   Am I willing to forgive when I have no guarantee that I won't face this hurt again nor could the issue be erased that was being faced because of the unmet need of my heart. 
 
"This isn't fair!," my soul cried out.  "Why should I have to endure this pain again without recompense and revenge?"
 
And the Holy Spirt reminded me "Love bears all things." 1 Cor 13:7 ESV 
 
It was then that I realized that Love Can Be A Cross.
 
Love could mean letting go of the pain you felt to pick up "bearing of all things."
Love could mean renewing your vision to "believe all things."
Love could mean releasing bitterness of unmet needs to pick up "hoping for all things."
Love could mean not withholding yourself to "endure all things."
 
Check your heart.  Do you want the love of God to live and breath and have it's being in you?  Then acknowledge that love can be a cross and choose to pick yours up.
