Love is not for the faint of heart

Some say it's coincidence, I say it's meant to be. I had read and saved these words of Steve Cornell almost a year back and today I am glad I did so. Listening to Silent Night tonight, I agree that Love is not for the faint of heart, its for the brave and the brave one to be.

It is greatest way to live.

If you don’t like the life you’re living, allow me to point you to “the most excellent way”. If you want to leave mediocrity and complacency behind to pursue a transformed life, faith and hope are important but the greatest pursuit of all is love”. Love is so great that it binds all other virtues together in perfect unity. But I must warn you that this life of love is not for the faint of heart.

Love will powerfully enrich your life and relationships, but it will first require you to put everything under its influence. 

Slow down and reflect on the nature of love. Let love examine every part of your life.
 Let it ask for changes as you submit to the transforming influence it requires.

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. Love never fails.”

Love is not be scared of, It is to be embraced.
