Month of Feb is a month of Love. People will buy flower for their love one, will spend more time and money for their relationship. And I do not want to be left behind even though Im single but I want to listen and learn more about what is love all about. I decided to sign up for a devotional title "What is LOVE?". Found this in bible apps called YouVersion. It is a simple yet powerful material to go back to basic on LOVE itself. 

I finished the devotion this morning (20 Feb 2012). Yes it is 20 days devotional material. 

Its ended with a very familiar verse to all of us.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 NIV

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

The question to ponder to close this devotion is in which Love definiton that i lack off?

At first and my immediate answer is love is not self seeking. It hits myself and my pride. Because most of the time, when we say love it will lead us into how we feel, what we demand from others. And it is to satisfy our emotion only. We want to be satisfied from the love itself.
Im tring to understand on loving God with not self seeking. Dont expect God to be our slave instead of our master by asking all our request and want it to be happen on the next day.
I should learn to Love Him with no self seeking.

When i wrote this, 1 question jump up into my mind. Is this the way that we should love others also?
Does it mean unconditonal love?
I asked Him, do you mean that if i get hurt from someone that I love or I treasure then I need to apply this thing?

Well some of us might know the answer already. It is YES!
Shoot! I really do not know if i can to love like this.

Always trust???!!!! You mean it??
I mean how if I tried to trust them but they hurt me again??? should i trust them again????
I really have no confidence. But yeahh I know my confidence is in you. Knowing that I might not go through it You give me hope, You give me a new strength and of course You give people surround me.

By the time it happen, i believe that you will ready with your safety net to catch me and embrace me with your love.
