Worth Fighting For

What is it that causes us to love? To seek it, to crave it, to give it? Why do we have an innate need to connect with others? We are fiercely loyal to those we love.

Morgan Page created a song called Fight For You, that describes a love that is both baffling and compelling. “I’d fight for you. I never thought I’d feel this way,” are some of the lyrics. I think we all feel this way when we fall in love. Especially after we’ve been in love with that special someone for a while. At first, we may be surprised that we can become so attached to someone, but then it becomes something more. We begin to feel like we cannot be separated from that individual. We will fight for that person. Fight to keep the love alive.

It’s a powerful thing. I think sometimes we take it for granted. We shouldn’t. We all need it. Whether it be a romantic love or a friendship, it is something powerful and gets inside of us. It gives us value and worth.

Love can be a lot of things. It can hurt. It can sting sometimes. It can bring ecstasy and belonging. It is life-changing. For many, it is something ellusive; either because they are afraid of it or the right circumstances haven’t been met. But it is out there for us all. Others seem to find it easily, and perhaps too often. But the real kind of love changes everything.

Seek it. Give it. Cherish it. Protect it. Invest in it. Sacrifice for it. Find someone to give it to. We need it.

  1. When I was younger and single and longing for a wife, a lot of the feelings were selfish, of wanting someone to be with me. Of course I planned on giving love as well, but when we are looking for love, it has it’s obvious selfish aspect to it for what we can get out of it.

    During rough times, particularly my wife having an accident and being in surgery and the ICU with a slight scare, times like that are when you start to have the slightest glimpse of the love God has for us. Times like that, I realized that I would sacrifice myself to protect my wife. I don’t have kids yet, but I know it will be even stronger with them. I always hear about parents that talk about how they would do anything for their kids and they actually forget about themselves and put themselves aside for their kids sake and don’t even have a second thought about it.

    If we magnify that and imagine the perfect love of God………wow, it makes me want to pray and cry and worship Him.
