The Power of Love

BrotherWord - Power of Love

1Corinthians 13:4-8 – Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails…

Love is the driving force beyond 99.9999% of all actions.  Whether pursuing the love of your life or your ideal job, it all stems from the same place deep within and manifests in different ways on different levels.  Love allows a person to hope, to dare, to believe, to endure, to never quit.  Love also fuels and replenishes and when necessary, love heals.  Love is the elixir of life!

Please take time to watch the video below that epitomizes how strong love truly is and the depths one will travel to express and show how much they love.  It’s inspiring, warming, and inspiring… and take note towards the end where their love stems from.

“Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”  ~ Barack Obama

Often times society is a reactionary creature and many times the actions taken are after the fact and much too late.  It is easier to try to fix the problem after its gone awry than to prevent it before it ever has the chance to manifest.

In light of the Zimmerman verdict, I began to think of the series of events and how things could have, should have, been different.  Hindsight is always 20/20, but what about foresight?  Having the prudence and perception to see what lies ahead and the courage to take a stand and make a difference is a quality that is rarely used.  We rally to the cause after the effects have the damages are done… some of them irreparable.  What if measures were taken before Trayvon Martin ever went on that fateful walk?
