In my opinion, all of us want to be Loved.
It is a wonderful feeling to be loved. But Where Is Love?
I remember when I was in High School I had been going steady with my girlfriend for around two years.
I even bought her a pre- engagement ring when I was 18.
Then she dropped the bomb on me.
She was seeing someone else! I was devastated. I THOUGHT I had found LOVE!
And I was wrong! I became SO Apathetic after that. I started drinking very heavily, almost every day.
Until the Spring of 1980. That is when my entire life Changed!
Seeking For Love – Everywhere!
As I look back on those days over forty years ago I can see more clearly now.
As the saying goes, and it is true. When you are IN the forest, you cannot see the forest for the trees.
For me, that bigger picture was the picture I had forgotten to do.
And that was, to look up. There is Love and Hope in the Upward Look.
When we are young we look for excitement and challenge. We want to have fun, and we think fun equates to happiness.
But now when I step back and look over those early years of my life, I realize I was just looking for Love.
Are You Tired in Your Search For Love?
I was not only tired, but I really did not care anymore. After my girlfriend dumped me I just existed.
Day by day, just existing. Until March of 1980 when God put this question into my mind.
“You are careful not to hurt the feelings of others, what about Me? When you sin, it hurts ME”
That thought made me crumble before God onto my knees. I did not want to hurt Gods feelings.
I began to weep, and told God how sorry I was for hurting him.
An overwhelming sense of peace and joy flooded over me, and I was aware that God had forgiven me of all of my sins.
I have never been the same since.
And OH, what a Love I have found!
This song expresses it very well.
