Love - by Dean Chicquette
Is love enough? Can it capture every corner of your life? Will it end the struggle no matter your age, biological makeup, intelligence, race, nationality, or preferences?
Never, if it is birthed out of transient feelings attached to fleeting desires. That sort of love always comes up short. It comes in with a world of promises and exits with the next thought or feeling. Then what is this type of love that settles the soul, declares utility, provides rest?
Love cannot be an idea, or salve, or emotional balm, nor even a historical act I trust in. The only answer left is that love is a person who captures our souls and covers all the bases from the inside out. How many liberating loves can there be? One. Yes, we have such a One and that One is a person!
That person is Jesus Christ, God's key to opening every heart and transforming the empty into overflowing, the purposeless life into a living monument.
Yes, LOVE is a Person doing His thing as you.
