“Love is patient …”
To be patient means to be content to wait if necessary; not losing one’s temper while waiting. This means that there definitely is some waiting to do where patience is involved. Our first writer is a very dear friend of mine – my go to guy all day every day and an amazing writer! He’s written a few pieces on here already so check them out!
He’s a special friend of mine and I don’t know enough words to keep describing him so I’ll just stop here – here’s Kolade Iwayemi. One more thing, follow him on Instagram @kollarday to catch other #RealTalk updates.
So here we go:
Through the gory ordeal of nails being pierced into His hands
The sight of his sides being ripped apart with spiked spears
The great surge of blood that splattered across the scene
All this He did just so He could take away our sins
And all through this He didn’t utter a word of regret
What then do we say love is?!
When a neighbour accidentally runs into your car while parking
When your child isn’t doing too well at school
When you have been expecting a child after several years of marriage
Staying without a Job after years of graduation
I know all of this can lead to frustration
In fact it causes you to lose hope and wonder what the purpose of your faith is…
You wonder if anything at all is worth it
You wonder if the love you heard so much about is true
In moments like this you just have to look back at the sacrifice
Think of how much He went through for you
So when you’re about throwing in the towel
When you are about giving up on that child
when you are about taking the easy way out
Just remember – He could have done the same
But for your sake and mine he bore the shame
Because He understood that true love requires real sacrifice
True love endures hard times
True love is Patient!!
What is love to you?
So no matter how long the wait, just know that ‘true love waits’- if it’s for someone or concerning something. If it’s going to be worth it, then sometimes we have to wait for it!!! Join the Ganaija family on facebook and remember,
