Is Love an action word?
It remains to be seen. Love that is hidden. How normal is it that? You speak the word “Love” to your child, then disassociate yourself from them. The one they know as father.
Your choice of not being involved in that child’s life, goes far beyond responsibility, there are other agendas set in motion like abandonment issues, identity crisis, anxiety and trust. The danger of not displaying inward love of affection, then not showing the outwardly component of caring hardens the heart . Just because you say the word does not give it power or content, it has no history. This is not True Love, but sabotage. It has come to rob you of your joy and God’s Unconditional Love.
When we meant the other day, I knew it was not by mistake. Your story touched me in ways you would never, as I listened, we prayed. The Holy Spirit intervened, meant us at the very place at that precise moment.
Love is much like Faith. “Faith without works is dead.” James 2:26 When we have faith there should be evidence fruit- a changed life obedience. Just as Faith without Work is dead, so is a life without Love.
True Love is unconditional. It is outwardly seen, not hidden in the cold shadows of ones selfishness.
The ultimate display of Unconditional Love, is as Jesus hung on the cross, in obedience, so none would be lost or Fatherless.
God is your Father and He Loves You too!
“A father to orphans and an advocate for widows is God in his holy dwelling place.” Psalm 68:5
