Norman Elrod on Love

“It might be that a degree of confusion is a necessary requirement for love. Its presence causes one to admit their own inadequacy and inability to ‘make it work’. Consequently, an embrace of humility occurs in regard to their pursuit of love, causing them to tread carefully the path of love and each day throw themselves down at the feet of Christ and cast themselves on His grace and mercy, knowing that the success of their relationship does not depend on their comprehension of love but on Christ’s grace towards you and the working of His spirit in you. . . .It’s a beautiful truth, and one that compels us to be better stewards of the hearts we’re involved with. Such confusion turns into humility, which turns into petition for Christ’s provision, which in the end makes us wiser and more gentle lovers.” –Norman Elrod
