Love is a word that’s thrown around a lot. But true love isn’t casual—it’s committed. Christ showed us perfect love when He willingly sacrificed His life for ours on the cross. As followers of Christ, we’re called to lay our lives down for others as well. How can we do that? The first step to loving someone is to try and understand them. Learn about their situation by asking, “How long have you been like this? Where does it hurt? What gives you comfort?” Then you can figure out how to best serve them. But before we can give love to others, we need to receive it from God. Commit yourself to diligently seeking Him, and you will find that love flows out of you just as easy as it flows in.-Joyce Myers (via dukefaniam)
So Jesus, let me get this straight…
You came to Earth to live a perfect and holy life, and you died the most painful death, were killed by people who you still chose to love, so that when my life came into existence, I wouldn’t have to live in fear or be bounded up by sins that were MY fault? You didn’t do anything wrong, but STILL died so I, a sinner, someone who fails daily, could be cleansed, purified, and made new?
With everything You’ve done for me, how could I not fall flat on my face and be left in complete awe of You?

Love someone with your strengths, don’t look for someone because you are lonely, look for someone you could be alone with. Don’t look for someone that will complete you, look for someone who will complete this journey with you.
It’s not about a “Soulmate”, it’s about finding someone who has already found THE soulmate. If you’re wondering; Jesus is our only soulmate, everyone else is just seeking to be more like Him. Find those people.
