Something I Once Loved - A message from A friend who wants many to see the Light and Be Transformed.
This message is as it is,
No victim of love goes un-rewarded because *LOVE* is *GENEROUS* and *HIGHLY APPRECIATIVE*. It always gives back, however, the reward depends on where the love was invested. With love too, Terms and Conditions apply as the reward is always known to the victim right from the time of investment, but to this, less attention is paid.
From my love for smoke, I acquired lung cancer. Little did I know that this was Mr. Smoke saying "For your faithfulness towards me, I couldn't say Thankyou any better."
One day, I woke up to the bitter fact that my Liver had stopped filtering blood, detoxifying chemicals and metabolizing drugs because it had been over worked by my love and over consumption of alcohol.
My Heart too did not escape the package of boyfriends/girlfriends who succeeded in convincing me that sex was not only the exact but also, the correct definition of LOVE!!!
From my love for Sex, did I not yield my fleshy lustful desires? Or was not the gate opened for infatuation in my life? Oh, what an investment!!! And what a reward!!!
All of these, I loved and cherished then, but now, I'm a child of the day, and of the light. No longer do I travail the darkness and to the night, do I belong no more.
I do not use the phrase, *"Something I loved once gave me a box full of darkness*. *It took me so long to understand that this too, was a gift,"* because it is well put. I use it because I've been at that place where you, that is reading this article and saying that "Someone must have told her my
story" is at. I've paced through valleys of life before but God allowed that to happen to me, so that you would escape it.
So what is it that you love so dearly and what are you likely to reap from it? Are your investment plus reward worth Christ dying for? Think about it.
I can also END by reiterating, THINK ABOUT.
I love God, I love Myself and I love my neighbors whoever they may be, Am ready each and every time to shine the Light of Jesus and Bring assured Hope to those that have lost it and to reconcile the hearts of men and God that they may love him wholly.
