The Greatest Love Story Ever Written
Pinterest

We all have a desire to be cherished and wanted, to hold someone close and to be held, to love and to be loved in return. We want to be part of the greatest love story ever told. We dream of a love like in the books and movies. I know I've read my fare share of Nicholas Sparks novels, and i've definitely watched almost every cheesy romance movie. We have such high expectations of what we want in our relationships and how it can be perfect. We're constantly searching for "the one" that will make everything fall into place and love us unconditionally. But often, we're so busy searching for our earthly human love, that we miss out on the greatest love story ever told: the one with our heavenly Savior.

Before anything else, you are wanted, you are loved, you are desired for and cherished, and you are spoken for. We didn't ask for it, but He loves us anyway. He is patient. He is kind. He does not envy, He does not boast, He is not proud. He does not dishonor others. He is not self-seeking. He is not easily angered. He keeps no record of wrongs. He does not delight in evil, but He rejoices in the truth. He always protects us, always trusts us, always has hope in us, and He always perseveres. He is the perfect love. He does not let you down. He loves you unconditionally no matter what you do, and he forgives.

He sent His only son knowing that he would be ridiculed, mocked, betrayed, beaten, and hung on a cross to die a slow painful death all for us. He loved us so much that some of his very last words were asking for forgiveness for OUR mistakes, wrongdoings, and sins. He is there when no one else seems to be, and He makes miracles happen every day. He never lets you down. He has forgiven you for everything you have done, and everything you are going to do. His mercies are made new each day.

You see, He is the perfect definition of love. The relationship you have with our Savior is the greatest love story ever written. It trumps any book or movie out there. His love is constant and unwavering. One day you will find "the one" you're meant to be with on Earth, but just remember that you don't need to search relentlessly to get the greatest love story ever, because your story has already been written. You already have it. You are a part of the greatest love story that could ever be written, and if you remember that, and trust in Him, He will lead you to the perfect Earthly love you could ever imagine.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?

13800

If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
