What is Love?

I am sure i'm not the only one who has asked this question, "What is Love?"
Maybe you find yourself asking this often.
A lot of people have a bad view on what Love really is, so i wanted to write a blot about
this subject, especially since today is a day to 'Love'.

As i look around at the decorations of red and pink hearts all around my school i ask "why is there only one day to celebrate 'Love'? " . Everyday should be a chance to love, everyday should be a chance to show others you care by Loving them.
Is more than pink and red hearts , roses, chocolates.
Love is an Action.

Love is not the funny feeling you get in the pit of your stomache when your next to someone you like.
No, you see  Love is like the wind, you can't see it but you could feel it. Love is never-ending, never-failing, all-consuming, unconditional, self-sacrificing.

 " Love is Patient, Love is Kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no records of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perserveres". 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Love is great, because the whole truth of the matter is God is Love.

Now as i close i want to ask whoever is reading this to go back to that verse and replace every 'Love' with 'God', and you'll see how that alone makes so much sense. God is Love. Now may you have a day filled with Joy, Peace, Hope, but most of all filled with Love. God Bless you today&Always. - Cristal

Trust in......

We've all heard that word a bunch of times.
But trust is hard, sometimes we can't always trust the people we love.
As for me i can say i have no trust issues whatsoever, like with anyone, even if i just met you i have a 'feeling' i could trust you with deep personal stuff.
However, not everyone is like me, we're all different, and trusting people can be hard for a lot of people, especially if you've been hurt and have been disappointed in people.

Even if it's not so hard for me to trust, certain people, i find it hard trusting the one person who will NEVER forsake me, no matter what, God.

Being very honest here. A lot of my friends always ask me how do i keep such faith in God, as if to say i don't ever doubt him. Which is not true, i do doubt, i am human, not perfect.
But the truth is it's hard, you think you can plan everything and control how everything turns out, but in the end God is the only one in control. And i have to TRUST that everything is working out because i don't know what's ahead. 
I guess that's where faith comes in, i do believe he is working out everything for good. Even when things in my life happen that don't make sense.

To end this blog, i want to let you know, whoever is reading this that it may be hard trusting God, but it's all worth it. Trust me, it's so worth it, he's so worth it!  And May God keep Blessing you, guiding you, because he loves you so much! Trust him and he will make your path's straight.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him and he will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6
