We all are in search of love. This is a primary need, almost like drinking water, we need to know that someone loves us, that we are important, that someone cares. Love is not a feeling… Feelings actually come and go… Love is a decision, a fact, a solid rock, a person…
All of us have a “hole” in the heart, that needs to be filled. Some of us try to fill it with money, clothes, prizes, exercise, drugs, music, sex… but nothing fills it. Don’t misinterpret me. These things are not bad, but in excess, when they become “our everything” is when we realize that we need something bigger, something that can fill out this emptiness. At the end we realize that “all we need is LOVE”….
but why? We all were created with the need to love and be loved, so that we can turn to God and find him.
Why God created us? To love us! It does no matter where you are, if something I can be sure is that GOD LOVES YOU! How amazing is GOD! It does not matter if you are aware or not but… He is crazy about you! The one that does not need anything, they one that created the universe, the one that supports every breath of life LOVES YOU!!! This is something amazing! It does not matter how much hunger you have of God, may be you do have a lot, may be you don’t, but he really wants your friendship. He does not need it, he wants it.
God did not create us because he is lonely. He created us to love us. Because love is action, love is come out of yourself and pour out your life for others.
We all were created in likeness of God, and similarly, LOVE is the only thing that fulfills our hearts. Love in action! When we feel that we did something good, that we helped someone, when we fill that we are useful, then our heats fill full again, because we have loved.
So you don’t feel all this love…. Well, take your hand to your chest… yes do it!… feel your heart!… every beat is intended by God. it is not random, it is not a causality. It is the will of God to give you life, and talk to you in the secret of your heart, in the miracle of living each day. Sometimes we are immune to be amaze by this things that seem so trivial, but in fact are the most important things.
“Each one of us longs for love, for truth, for life – and Jesus is all of these things in abundance!” (Pope Francis)
A good friend of mine. Martha Fernandez-Sardina, just started a project to remind everyone that we all are loved, not as a mass of people, but individually YOU ARE LOVED, AND I AM LOVED. If you want to know more about this project, you can go to http://rememberyouareloved.com/
