You take me as I am
Into your new scarred hands
and when I run so far away
you always call me back again
into your open arms
not matter what ive done
amazing grace has found me here
because of what you've done, for me

Love and Dreaming about it
Monday, March 07, 2005

Verses never fail to leave an impression on me. One of these verses are from 1 Corinthians 13. Poignant because it talks about LOVE...

If I speak in tongues of men and of angles but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.
If I have the gift of prophecy and can fanthom all mysteries and all knowlegde, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
If I give all to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trust, always hopes, always preserveres.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
For we know in part and prophesy in part,
but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.
When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child.
When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.
Now we see but a poor reflection as in the mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I'm know.

And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.

I was talking to Charlene last night, and for some unknown reason, this chapter kept popping into my head this morning. We were talking about relationships and there I was again, wishing to see the lad I liked and pining away for a relationship. But she put it into perspective for me and I realised some things. I went on about not having anyone liking me and stuff like that, and she said I'm such a sweetheart (she's the sweet one, saying stuff like that! hehe..), they will be but I have to wait. True, what people say, my self esteem is low. Oh well, always been like that since secondary school. I really sometimes wish for a relationship, but maybe it's just not the time yet.. God's timing truly isn't mine. Just go on dreaming about it eh? Cheerio...
