Hello and welcome to my blog, Love Unconditional!

For those of you who don’t know me and have no clue what you may have gotten yourselves into, let me explain.

As the oldest of four children, I have been making up stories for my siblings to act long before we could talk. I am a movie critic, reader of books, writer of pretty much anything that has words on it, actress, but foremost, I am a daughter of the King of kings.

Put simply, I’m just a girl with a passion to show others the love of Jesus.

Welcome to Love Unconditional!

Some of you are probably wondering, “Why did she choose to name her blog, Love Unconditional?

Well, I’m so glad you asked!

If you have not read 1 Corinthians 13 in the Bible, then I highly recommend you do so. That chapter so accurately sums up the mission statement of this blog, and hopefully, of my life.

In 1 Corinthians 13, Paul makes it clear that even if we do great things, even noble or heroic deeds, but do not love, then we have nothing. But in a world that values the number of likes on our Instagram posts and places high value on warm, fuzzy feelings, what does that even mean?

The entire Bible is full of God’s love for His people everywhere we look. God’s unfailing protection over His people, countless promises and answered prayers, and finally, the most loving choice of all when God sent His Son, Jesus, to die for us so that we could spend eternity with Him.

If that’s not true love, then I don’t know what is.

When we realize the Bible for what it is, God’s Love Letter to His beloved children, we can clearly see His love shining through every page. It’s clear that love matters to God, and in turn, it should matter to us.

I’m not talking about the number of likes we get on our Instagram or the emotional high we get when we feel liked and loved by our peers.

I’m talking real love. True, everlasting, I’ll-give-my-life-for-you-even-though-you-don’t-deserve-it kind of love. The kind of love that Jesus gave to us.

Let’s face it. Love isn’t always easy.

In fact, love is hard, but hey, tough love is the sweetest.

I would rather make the hard choice to love even when it hurts than allow my emotions to drive whether I “love” another person or not. I don’t want my feelings to determine who I am. I don’t want to allow others to determine my worth.

Because you know what? I don’t have to be the coolest or the most popular person in the room to have value in God’s eyes. I may be rejected by the world but, news flash, their opinion ultimately doesn’t matter.

I can tell you from personal experience that it’s much more fulfilling to seek out the lost and the hurting than try in vain to be liked and wanted.

Jesus is the very essence of Love itself, so it’s important that we as Bible-believing Christians show the world what it means to love differently like Jesus does. He put others before Himself, sought the lost, was a listening ear to those who needed it, didn’t condemn the sinners, and didn’t allow the rejection of the world to define Him.

What if we lived lives like that? What if instead of responding with hate like the world, we responded gently and with love? What if we saw others as more important than ourselves?

What if, like Jesus, we decided to love others with a love unconditional?

  1. Amen! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I wish I knew the love of Jesus the way you do when I was your age. May the Lord bless you as you continue your journey putting Him first and doing your best to love like He does. Okay, so from one writer to another, I love this line, “I can tell you from personal experience that it’s much more fulfilling to seek out the lost and the hurting than try in vain to be liked and wanted.” Thank you for being willing to share God with the world who so desperately needs him. 🙂
