People fail us, over and over. And every time it happens we act SHOCKED. We get upset because we trusted that person. But, doesn't the Bible give us very clear warning that all humans will fail us. The only flawless and perfect love is the love of our Savior. The end, case closed.
No friend you will ever have or boy you will ever meet will make you happy all the time. Now, i don't know if this is true for you or not but i trust people much to easy and much to fast. It does not take a lot to gain my trust, even if i barely know you. And it actually takes a lot to loose it. I'm not sure why i am this way, it's just how God made me. So this is something i struggle with, because i forget that all people will fail me. No matter how perfect they seem, no one really is.
Now i have a pretty tight group of friends and i am more than blessed with each person in my life than i realize. I have a handful of people that i could not make it through my day without, and each of you know who you are. But even though i love these people with all of my heart, they sometimes fail me. Does that mean i love them any less? Absolutely not. It is just normally something that we have to work through, but honestly that normally makes our relationship stronger.
Even my family members fail me from time to time. Don't get me wrong i have the best family in the world but, hello they are human. What the heck can you expect... My parent always want the best for me but they do occasionally mess up. Even though my mom is literally super woman and can handle almost anything let me be the first to tell you, she does not always make you the happiest person in the world. And even my daddy occasionally makes me irritated. And trust every single one of siblings drive me insane sometimes. i love every single one of them to death, but they are not perfect.
Last but not least i epically FAIL people non stop. I fail my friends, family, even people i barely know. I am so far from perfect it is ridiculous. And no i am not a "bad kid", i grew up in church, became a Christian at a very young age, and i love the Lord with all my heart. But that does not make me any better than the people who go out and get drunk every night. I am a born sinner. I mess up and hurt the people i care about the most. But most importantly i fail my Jesus over and over. He went to some a drastic measure to save me from all of my sin. He died a REAL and brutal death on the cross. Not the little drawing of the three crosses with the sunshine we scribbled growing up, but a horrid death. And he went through blood, bruises, and gashes for me and you. Yet we fail him over and over, and all he wants is us. He wants us more than any other person will ever want us. And we cheat on him, and lie to him constantly. That is true love.
He is perfect.
We are nothing.
