February 14 is a tricky date for me. It traditionally represents romantic love… but for me it signifies both the anniversary of my separation, and believe it or not, the anniversary of my divorce. Yep, you just couldn't make this up.
But over the years, I have come to realize that broken love goes a long way to revealing true love.
You see, true love means that you love the things that people you love love. (Read that again and again until you get what this phrase means!)
So my challenge: I love my kids, and they love their mother. And I can’t fully love my kids, if I can’t in some healthy way, love their mother.
I can’t fully love God if there are children of His that I don’t love. I need to love the things that God loves.
It’s a simple concept. But one that challenges my faith and my practice. But that challenge can take me places that I believe my God is calling me to.
