Fireproof

We need to fight for real love today.

Today is a time to step up and out of the pathetic box that society wants us to be satisfied with.

We were born to be different.

We were not made to settle for less than anything beautiful, wholesome and blessed.

We need to fight for fireproof love.

Unconventional truth

——————————————————————————————————-

I’ve always been a fighter.

The one who refuses to let the story end.

Whenever I want to give up, and even when it may be better for me to do so, I keep on trying.

This is both good and bad.

But tonight I realized that this is fireproof.

See I’ve been so indecisive lately. 

Everything in my mind seems so outta wack. 

Like I wanna give up so bad, and I confuse freedom with defeat.

Love isn’t a losing battle.

At least it shouldn’t be.

I take everything I say seriously.

Isn’t is funny how 3 simple words can effect us so intensely?

3 of the first things we learn how to say and process in our little intricate minds.

3 words: “I love you”.

What I’m learning is these words can create a castle, and burn down a fortress.

They are not to be played with, but taken with all sincerity and honor unconditionally.

We possess so much power with the simple phrase “I love you”.

But it’s SO much more than that.

We, myself included, confuse love with a feeling/desire to satisfy our intense hunger for acceptance/belonging/affection/dreams. 

When someone’s “I love you” (or lack thereof) doesn’t meet our standards….

WE QUIT.

And this is how we our shown to live.

Because we DESERVE personal happiness right?

Wrong.

Because we’ve confused the word happiness too.

When did we stop believing in truth and beauty?

At what point did we give away our dignity to the point where even we view ourselves as nothing?

We have been blessed with a spirit of confidence from our Creator.

What cost do we put on ourselves and these words?

How much weight do they still bear in our hearts/minds?

I’ve gotten to the point in my life where if I don’t sincerely mean those 3 words, I will NOT say them, regardless of if I’m being told I’m “LOVED” or not.

Because I will not be conformed nor bound to what isn’t the shining truth.

This is FIREPROOF.

Pray, that’s something I struggle with when it comes to consistency. 

Pray for love in your heart and mind.

Don’t give up yet, ask God for His time.

There are things in life that are worth saving.

There are things in life that are fireproof

We need to recognize them and fight for them tooth and nail.

Don’t be afraid to gracefully accept a loss, but don’t be afraid to fight confidently either.

Persevere.

Love is not a losing battle if we know how to fight.
