Random Musings: Love


I stumbled across this today, nestled in a notepad amongst other completely unrelated things.  It seems that I was in a funk about love and relationships.  See below:

At the core of every human is the desire for love.  A desire so simple and finite, yet so deep and seemingly unattainable.  And so we search and we question, and we make mistakes in a quest that should be meaningful.  But what if there is no meaning at all?  Is love really worth it?  Why do we bare our souls, our innermost thoughts, desires, and questions only to be left in the cold?  Of what value is my love if it is never reciprocated?  Does your love matter if it’s given to me in a way that I’m not yet able to receive?

Man, I was definitely feeling pretty gloomy.  But if we’re honest with ourselves, we know that love isn’t always peachy keen- it requires work and has it’s gloomy moments.  That said, I’d love to read your thoughts on my random musings.

  1. 1 Corinthians 13

  2. Man…I definitely know that feeling. But it always goes back for me about knowing that I need to look to God more for that desire to be fulfilled than any potential boo or hubby.

    God can always give what no other person can. When I start to feel that yearning desire to feel loved etc, i think its time for me to ask God what he loves most about me, and give me ways to feel it.

    its great to know during these moments that God always loves me more than anyone or anything.

  3. I have always considered love to be a mystery, meaning i hardly know why it brings so much joy and pain. But i rather enjoy it than live without it. I am a man who miss love after it has come and gone.

  4. i am where you were, and honestly i’m not looking to emerge from my “funk,” as you call it, anytime soon. i think those are valid questions. they deserve their day, and although the questions might be gloomy, they still have the potential to lead to brighter answers. maybe.
