obsessed with Ed Sheeran
Yesterday I visited Greenbelt Chapel for my weekly prayer therapy. Since the start of my relationship with Arniel, I had been very happy (I still am), out of focus and so restrained on the feeling of being in love. It was just what I had been thinking all day. I had been quite the irresponsible me as per my paper work is concerned, my review for Evidence, the accounting logs for my brother’s account and other stuffs I need to finish before May ends. I am so pre-occupied with love stuffs that I keep on delaying everything else.
The homily is so timing because the topic was about love. Love which is commonly attached to romantic love. So simple, to love. However simple the word, the act itself is not that simple. As per Father, the act of loving requires a lot of patience and commitment. It not only requires us to give ourselves, share ourselves with other people. As Jesus have shared Himself to us. As it was represented by the Ten Commandments, “it is not a request, a suggestion or merely ways to be able to be a better person”, it is a command from God that we love each other.
The thing is, it is not that easy. As Father have shared, it is not easy to love someone who doesn’t love you. It is not easy to love someone who hurt us, someone who have been messing our lives. The trick is to always see that Jesus chose to love us when He can choose not to.
Love is not something which only flows from our hearts. It is something that comes from our whole being. Something that is imbibed on us by God. We cannot truly say that we have loved if we are not vulnerable, if we can’t feel pain. To be loved is to give love. To love is to share, not just to the people we love, but to everyone. To not to love is like to be dead inside. So always choose to love, always share your love to receive love.
So I pray that God remove all the impurities in my heart, for me to be able to be kind, patient and share my self to everyone. That I may be able to share love and be an inpiration to others, that I be a good person in the eyes of God. That He sends me His Holy Spirit to guide me, and help me make good choices. That He keep my family, loved ones and friends safe from harm. To those who have hurt me, I pray that they will be blessed with kindness and love.
