Love comes to life

Relationship problems are not just between man and wife. Of late, some of my friends have found that relationship problems are between friends as well. I often wonder how friends can become enemies, from experience, my super best friends have simply drifted into the distance... because of my laziness and the lack of commonness between us. Friends that I made in school; the only communication that still exists between us is a friendly facebook greeting on birthdays. The things we talk about when we meet are so trivial that you may say the same things to a stranger on a street. What have you been up to lately? What about person x that you both know? And your parents? 

Then there are other friends, friends that you have met at some point in your life. Friends who have been with you through thick and thin. These friends you may not see often but when you meet up you cannot stop talking. Because you care so deeply about these friends, things can often turn sour. Sometimes it's the minor things that we say or do. Or the things that weren't done that puts a splinter in the relationship. Perhaps the other person doesn't even remember why the splinter was there in the first place. 

We think too much. We care too much. That's why we hurt. Friendships, like romantic relationships take effort to maintain. IT's a two way process. It doesn't work if only one person puts in the effort. Feelings need to be reciprocated. If it's not, it's very hard to maintain. 

1 Thessalonians 3

 1 So when we could stand it no longer, we thought it best to be left by ourselves in Athens. 2 We sent Timothy, who is our brother and co-worker in God’s service in spreading the gospel of Christ, to strengthen and encourage you in your faith, 3 so that no one would be unsettled by these trials. For you know quite well that we are destined for them. 4 In fact, when we were with you, we kept telling you that we would be persecuted. And it turned out that way, as you well know. 5 For this reason, when I could stand it no longer, I sent to find out about your faith. I was afraid that in some way the tempter had tempted you and that our labors might have been in vain.
Timothy’s Encouraging Report
 6 But Timothy has just now come to us from you and has brought good news about your faith and love. He has told us that you always have pleasant memories of us and that you long to see us, just as we also long to see you. 7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, in all our distress and persecution we were encouraged about you because of your faith. 8 For now we really live, since you are standing firm in the Lord. 9 How can we thank God enough for you in return for all the joy we have in the presence of our God because of you? 10 Night and day we pray most earnestly that we may see you again and supply what is lacking in your faith.
 11 Now may our God and Father himself and our Lord Jesus clear the way for us to come to you. 12 May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you. 13May he strengthen your hearts so that you will be blameless and holy in the presence of our God and Father when our Lord Jesus comes with all his holy ones.

Love comes to life- Big Daddy Weave

I've been restless on the inside 
Wondering about this heart of mine 
I've been desperately trying to find 
A way to prove that I'm still alive 

Has the love I speak so loudly of quietly grown cold 
Has my life been an empty voice? 
What I say needs to be seen 
I need to step out and make the choice 
To let go of everything 
Would You reignite this heart spark here in the dark? 

Bring Your love to life inside of me 
Why don't You break my heart 'til it moves my hands and feet 
For the hopeless and the broken 
For the ones that don't know that You love them 
Bring Your love to life inside of me 

A generation You're calling out 
Living everything that we sing about 
A revelation right here and now 
Of love beyond a shadow of a doubt 
Love that's greater than our own 
Won't remain unknown, when You...
