In Love With Love
Love Can Be Cold
Submiting to God's Will Helps your Lovelife
That's it. you tried-Gave it all you could and it still died
No chance, no way-No more reason(s) left for you to stay
Thought you found yourself a love so new-Then you found out it was not true
You can't control the ways of someone else- In the end you'll have to blame yourself
You're just In Love With Love
So cold so hard-Try to find a way to mend this heart
That's right, me too- Don't try to think that it was only
Abra-cadabra you can't wave a magic wand-open your eyes you'll find that they're still gone
Dream a dream to see what will unfold-over the rainbow there's no pot of gold
You're just in Love With Love
You can't control the ways of someone else-in the end you'll have to blame yourself
Tilt with windmills rub the genie's lamp-look thru the mirror there's no wonderland
They say that everybody plays the fool-facts of life sometimes can be so cruel
The game of hearts is hard to understand-Just the same you'll fall in love again...
You're just In Love With Love...
***So often we get hurt in the quest for companionship or that special someone. It's natural to desire a life's partner or soulmate as many call it. God instituted that arrangement almost from the very beginning of our existence on earth.. Sadly this is not something that we all are able to achieve in our lifetime. It can become an obsession for us too; and with that comes the danger of neglecting our relationship with God and the work it takes to improve upon that. We have to then keep reminding ourselves that when Matthew 6:33 quotes Jesus, his words cover EVERYTHING in our life. So "Keep on seeking first the Kingdom, and HIS righteousness...and all these other things will be added to you..."
To better understand this consider the fact that God is reaching out to you; this is evidenced by the fact that He led you to read this article. He's trying to get your attention and get you to understand that there's absolutely NOTHING that YOU can do to improve the situation you now find yourself in as to your love life(and whatever else is going-on); but HE is willing to take command/control of the situation and work things out for you and for your good (Romans 8:28) if you humbly submit yourself to him and ask him how you can better please him, then actually DO what He leads you to do; He will take care of the rest. That's why Jesus went further in the 7th chapter of Matthew and said that God is the ultimate Father who would not give you a rock when you ask for bread, or a serpent when asking for a fish. He KNOWS what you need and what's best, all He seeks is your submission and obedience. That's because He does'nt want us to continue making wrong and bad decisions. He actually cares and knows that HIS decisions are the one's that benefit us most.
Do YOU realize this?
It is wrong, but it is also human(imperfect human) nature to want control. That's what got us into this imperfect state to begin with. It's time for us to understand clearly that Jehovah is the ONLY one with enough in-depth knowledge of our make-up and abilities to decide how our lives should be lived. We have to have secure faith that what He decides will benefit us, and TRUST His judgement.
Yes, Love is wonderful and it is a blessing to experience it! Often though, it's simply not what's best for some of us. Sometimes with our imperfect state we are not capable of managing well in relationships due to whatever other imperfections we have that go against that arrangement. In such cases, God grants other things to fill the void of not having a mate.
Paul said that he wished everyone would be like him (single) in order thaty there'd be less opportunity for distraction form the preaching work. However, it is a fact that for many of us we simply function better when we have a mate. That's why Eve was called Adam's "compliment", which comes from the same Latin root word for "Complete". Our true mate holds within them that which we lack and thereby makes us a better functioning being, often acting as a encouragement to/for us and spurring-us-on to achieve things we otherwise could/would not.
In any event, let God decide what's best for you and don't over-burden yourself in seeking love as it can become the thing you unwittingly adore or worship as it is what you end-up giving the majority of your attention and energy to.
As always I encourage you to pray-pray-pray and supplicate(talk honestly to/with God).
