On Love





Love is most experienced when we least deserve it. When we don't need to beg so it can last longer. When we don't need to cover up our flaws and mess. When we don't need to be an option just to be the choice. When we don't need to be hurt just to be loved.

Many people including me romanticize love and heighten our feelings and emotions as if it is the only antidote for loneliness. We're so afraid to be imperfect and to be alone so we try to cover up and search for the love we thought we deserve.

We fight for it because we deserve it. We strive for it because we deserve it. We beg for it because we deserve it. We keep searching for love in the wrong places because we deserve it.

But what if I tell you, you don't deserve it...

You don't deserve it but you're worthy of this love. You don’t deserve it but you can experience this kind of love. You don't deserve it but you can feel this genuine love. You don't need to strive, beg, and fight for it because the truth is you won't deserve it no matter who you are and what you can do.

But this unfailing love can satisfy the thirst you feel inside. This love can heal your deepest hurts. This love can hear your silent cries. This love can see your scars and bruises. And all you need is this kind of LOVE. God calls you worthy of his everlasting love, in the midst of your shame and brokenness. His love is the only antidote to your suffering. This love has a name and HIS name is JESUS.

And once you experience this kind of love once you learn to surrender your heart to Him and once you let His love fill the emptiness inside you: you'll experience a glimpse of heaven, you'll feel His presence consume your heart, you'll find deep contentment and you'll realize you're worthy of this love.

You will stop looking for pleasures in the wrong places because HIS love fills the void inside you.

And once you consume His love it's easier to love and to be loved.

When teachers lose heart

We lose heart, in part, because teaching is a daily exercise in vulnerability. And this profession- my purpose breaks me and heals me.
