Waves. They totally amaze me. These huge loads of water just push and shove each other around
I was almost ready to let them take over me, when a realization dawned on me. I was shown the love of Christ. In just the smallest way. A child's hug. When life took it's terrible turn, something happened. My little sister just started hugging me. It's not like we don't hug normally, it's just she started doing it all the time. Any moment she saw me, she just gave me a hug. With her little arms wrapped around my waist she would say in her sweet little voice, "I love you, Melody." Many times I have struggled to contain myself from just bursting into tears.
During the worst pain of the waves tug, I sobbed to my savior. I needed His love. I need to feel His love in my life. I felt cold and lonely. I need Him to hold me. I begged to be held in His arms. I felt so pathetic asking to be held in someones arms. But that's all I needed. Someone to hold me, tell me they loved me. With a warm voice and a gentle touch He answered that cry. For months I failed to feel that embrace. Till I looked down into those bright blue eyes that smiled up at me. "I love you, Melody." Tears came to my eyes as I shook my head. I am so blind.
How could I fall into the arms of the hateful feelings that clawed at me? He loves me. His love is worth the fight. No pain is too great when I feel His tight hold on me. He soft words. "I love you, Melody."
Love is worth fighting for.
