Love can be thorny. Love can hurt. It is very human to look for love in all the wrong places. It is also very human to look for God in all the wrong places. Just as fake friends are a sore disappointment, so are fake gods.
Here is an open secret: God wants to be found. He will put heaven and hell to work to make it happen. Yes – even hell can be helpful at times. Finding God during life’s darkest hour is not so unusual. Pain can sharpen our senses and help us distinguish between counterfeit and original.
In pursuit of the real deal we will stop dead in our tracks when we have an “aha moment”, when we realize that God exists and that He cares.
True love originates from the Godhead – Three in One. One could say that the Trinity possesses the patent for love. God has the good stuff: Love tried and true; true love.
We know when we have struck gold. We know when we have found unfailing love.
