Falling in love is one of the sweetest things in life. Who are you falling in love with today?
I fall in love with my friends over and over again with each experience or conversation we have. No, that doesn’t make me fickle because I fall in love all the time – it’s not like I fall out of love with my friends. It’s more about my knowing them deeper every time we connect and that gives me more reasons to love them.
Falling in love can be (and is) a conscious decision we GET to make with each encounter we have.
Choosing to love people is really a gift. Love is so much easier than judgment and offense. When we learn to look for the treasure in others, we will begin to see them through the eyes of our Father. He has placed treasure in each and every one of us and it is our good pleasure to find it, brush it off and polish it up. We are made to make each other shine!
So often we don’t see the worth that is in ourselves – it takes someone else to point it out or reveal it to us. We are blinded by our past wounds and difficulties. Have you ever met someone who is simply amazing and they impress you by everything they do? I have and the crazy thing is, they don’t know any of this. They don’t know they are amazing – they feel the exact opposite actually. When I mention some of these things to them, speaking how I see them, they are frankly incredulous. They have never seen themselves in that light.
Because we so often can’t or don’t see the truth of who we are, especially who we are to other people, we walk around with half of our identity missing. This is why it’s so important for us to fall in love with people! They have no idea how lovely they are and if we don’t tell them, who will? All they will hear are the lies running around in their head that is designed to defeat them and keep them from being who they were made to be.
So again I ask – Who are you falling in love with today? Will it be a friend or will it be a total stranger? Could it possibly be a family member who is hurting? It’s up to you to decide.
