As a child it is not difficult to find someone who believes in you. The only difficulty is proximity. Are those who can believe in you close enough for you to touch and receive.
But let childhood pass. Let the people begin to notice your faults, and those who believe in you will quickly dissipate in number. Now let the person become an adult, full of fault, like a filthy glass filled with reeking mud. We will find no one left to believe in our potential [frankly, this is not an aberration. We simply don’t have any more potential to love] but those who require a payment of some kind. The love we need, we have to buy. Isn’t it said that the world loves the rich, while the pauper remains ignored; destitute of adoration.
Now we see destruction run rampant in every heart. Woe to the rich man when his money runs out. Woe to the poor man who cannot buy love. And especially, woe to the man who has used his mind to be loved by so many. For the mind will surely waste away to nothing.
You will say to me, that’s what a strong relationship is for; someone who will love you regardless your faults. But what should you say if no such relationship comes? And why should you hope in something that everyone knows is incredibly rare? How many fables revolve around “true love”.
Who are you then? You were nothing more than an empty body; hated and despised simply because you need to draw air. Your station in love will not increase. You will become less and less and less. How many old folks waste away with no one left to love them? They enter the grave poorer than they were when they were born.
Do you think this is too harsh? How many live like that for the majority of their life? How many become invisible even while they are here among us?
Here I must say that Christ is enough. He can reclaim and love and make you valuable. But even in that love, despair returns from time to time. We find they did not love the Lord when he was here among them. And even God has said they have hated me for no reason, he is righteous in Christ and full to overflowing with love and potential. How much more will they despise the unrighteousness within us?
Most people come into this world greatly loved. But also, most people leave this world despised and empty. Do not be fooled by the plenitude of beautiful stories.
I could leave it like this and most people would say amen. And I confess that today I do not have many more words in regard to this. But I look to my own soul to find the hope of Christ that lays for us beyond the grave. If he has proven his love for us while we are still filthy, how much more will we know his love when he takes away our mechanism of sin forever?
To the non-Christian I say, believe and experience The Hope. To the Christian I say remember, dig deep, struggle hard against the sorrow in your heart, remember his promise. It is enough. When there is nothing left, he is that part of our soul that refuses to be destroyed.
Today I do not have much strength. I have proofed this with half my heart. Perhaps I will come back a little while later and look it through. But what I had to say is written here, not hard to decipher past the mistakes.
