THIS. Oh the TRUTH. Love isn't a feeling it's a decision. A choice when the feeling is gone and life is hard and ugly and scary. This kind of Love is what remains when when you have nothing left of the dreams—this is the choice that says, "I promised. And you're worth keeping promises for."
To overcome our brokenness we must realize that we have to be healed by a power greater than ourselves. If we look only to ourselves, we will be not be able to make the journey from brokenness to wholeness. Jesus will not impose His healing upon us. We must make the decision to turn to Him for healing.
