Love Lessons: A Closer Look at Self-Expression
When it comes to women, I get it. From an early age, I have always known how to express my feelings in a way that was both crystal clear and that spoke directly to the sincerity by which they were said.
I have that down pat.
It’s because of this gift that I often find myself growing increasingly frustrated when I’m unable to express the love that I have for God with that same level of conviction. I find it a bit ironic that I get tongue-tied and flustered — especially when I consider that it was God who gave me this gift of expression in the first place.
Sometimes, I find myself just looking up at the heavens with an exasperated look that says, “I don’t know how to phrase this perfectly, but I just want you to know that I love you.”
It’s that same type of hesitation that hamstrings many of us when it comes to expressing our true feelings to our loved ones. We torture ourselves into believing that if it’s not JUST RIGHT, then they won’t accept it.
But that couldn’t be further from the truth…
In my case, I’ve come to learn that as long as my words were sincere, then God would welcome them with open arms. The same goes for you and your expressions of love. It’s time to push away the anxiety, and let the purity of your feelings lead the way.
One of my favorite singers, Mali Music, figured this out long before me, and he offers a great example in one of the most heartfelt love songs that I have ever heard in my life. I just couldn’t let the day pass without sharing my thoughts as well as this song.
