Love never fails. God's Love, That Is.

Love never fails. God's Love, That Is.

As humans we fail every day, but God's love never fails.

I personally hate the saying, "love never fails.

So, if it failed it wasn't love." It carries so many negative emotions for people. It leads people to believe that just because things fall through, there wasn't love present. Which is not the case. While yes, there are many relationships that do not have love in them, there are many that are full of love but just meant to be temporary.

We live in a broken world. We as humans are not perfect. Our love for each other is not perfect. Even the best spouse will fail you. Even the best parents will fail you. Even the best friend will fail you. That doesn't mean they don't love you. Love does not equal perfection here on Earth.

His love never fails. His love is unconditional. I was once told something that will stick with me forever: "Nothing you do will make God love you any more or any less than he already does." His love is so vast and unending we as humans cannot compare to it.

If you believe in the gospel, you believe that Jesus was sent to die for us. God loved us so much that he sent his son to suffer a death on the cross so we could spend eternity with Him. Can you imagine the amount of love he must have for us if he did that?

Just because your relationship didn't work out doesn't mean y'all don't or didn't love each other. And just because someone loves you doesn't mean they won't ever fail. As much as we try and want to be like Jesus, we are human. You will fail the people you love.

Now I'm not trying to write this as a pessimistic "love doesn't exist post" more of the opposite actually. Stop thinking that just because you lose friends or significant others, that they didn't love you. Many times people can continue to love one another without being in each other's lives. For example, just because someone dies do you stop loving them? I say no.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8
"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, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails."

I think this scripture is more of a guide on how we should try to love others. When we love others we should be kind and patient. "love does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud." But we are. As humans, we tangle and twist perfect love. But the goal is to try to create an unconditional love for others. Love like Jesus does.

Even if you feel alone and like you aren't loved by anyone, I promise you are. Whether you believe or not, God loves you. He loves ALL of his children.

No matter how far you stray or how many times you fall he will love you.

We all have those days where we let the negative thoughts that we're "not good enough," "not pretty enough" or "not smart enough" invade our minds.

However, the Bible reminds us that these things that we tell ourselves are not true and it gives us the affirmations that we need. Let these verses give you the power and motivation that you're lacking.

How Incorporating Organization In My Daily Routine Single-Handedly Changed My Life

And how it can structure yours.

It would be a complete fabrication of the truth if I pretended that my life in any way has been picture perfect. Things are messy, life is messy, and my life becomes an endless cycle of self provoked destruction.

I've had short bursts of motivation as a last expedient to seize control of the downward spiral I have endured. But mostly they have diminished along with any motivation I have left.

None of these short term solutions have yet to salvage my mental, physical, and academic state. SO, as an attempt to overhaul my life, I decided the best way to strive for control, is to organize every aspect of my life.

Yes, this could become unhealthy if I used this tactic as a way to tear myself down or over analyze my accomplishments, or lack thereof. But I try to view my life as something I have a say in while considering that not everything will be perfect or completely satisfy my goals for myself.

To successfully enact this measure, I try to never go into a day unaware of what I must accomplish, what tasks/work I have to attend to, and stocked with a full calendar and set of alarms that prevent me from missing deadlines. Although mildly time-consuming to detail my life in advance, it is greatly beneficially outweighed through the amount of time this tactic saves me.

Recently, I have noticed how much happier I have been, and feel as if my life is back on track and it's future in my hands. This has allowed me to work an upwards of 50 something hours a week, see and manage friends, read and keep up with hobbies, as well as give me peace of mind and time to relax with loved ones.

I am grateful for the role that organization has played in my life and suggest that everyone incorporate some type of underlying structure in their lives, to realize that anything is achievable with proper organizational preparation.
