The past couple months have been a time of change, reflection, and healing. As I talked to a dear friend, she shared with me that she had learned that she had to come to terms with the truth that when you love people big, you’re going to get hurt because people are messy and sticky. That resonated with me. It hit home.
As I continue to figure out who I am, I realize how much God has created me to love big. I love so much it hurts. I love people when it’s easy and I love people when it hurts. Sometimes my heart aches physically because of the love I get to pour out. I carry people’s burdens, even when they don’t ask me to.
God created me to love abundantly. To love boundlessly. People will hurt me. People will fail me. But my God never will, and He’ll fill the cracks in my broken heart with more of His love that I can share with the world around me.
I want to love people something fierce.
