Does love exist?

By Huschai Severe, Class of 2011

Many people have wondered for years does love exist, and where can it be found?  Many have been disappointed because of their failure to what seems to be an endless journey. Have you ever wondered why it is so hard to find love? Have you considered that you are looking in the wrong places?

You had a bad relationship and failed to believe in love. Then you find that one special person and believe that there is still hope, but that relationship ends up in a disaster and you are back at that place where you are sitting on the couch eating ice cream and watching Hitch starring Will Smith.  This is what the world says love is:  love is said to be a feeling of intense desire and attraction toward a person with whom one is disposed to make a pair. Now let’s be real; often times we are attracted to more than one person. It could be that one hot co-worker, or even that one sexy anchor woman or man, or maybe even that one hot soccer mom that you love seeing pick up the balls after every practice, or even those scrumptious girls or boys you see at the mall. The world says if I’m attracted to them, I automatically love them without even knowing them personally. They could be pretty on the outside, but be a bitch on the inside. (Excuse me for my language) Since I know you have been in broken down, beat up, fed up, disappointed, and hurt relationships in the past, let me help you discern if someone truly loves you or not.

First of all love is not a word that you should bounce around with. If you have the courage to say it then you should act on it because love is an action word. Okay here we go, you ready?   God is love. Now since God is love, love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. Love never fails. Since God is love and he is all these elements, then you can only find true love in God through his son Jesus the Christ who died for your sins because he loves you so much and will continue to love you no matter what. Come to Jesus and let him in your heart and you will find true love, the thing you have been searching for in people. I promise you that you won’t be disappointed. Just be patient and let him work in you his love.
