Challenge: Rise or Fall

“Fall in love.”falling

Fall (verb): move downward, typically rapidly and freely without control, from a higher to a lower level.

Fall (noun):an act of falling or collapsing; a sudden uncontrollable descent.

Hm…why is it so appealing to fall in love again? I don’t believe love is about being consumed by something impulsive and driven solely based on emotions. That would make it quite dangerous and volatile.

Rise (verb): move from a lower position to a higher one; come or go up.

Rise (noun): an upward movement; an instance of becoming higher

Yeah, that sounds like something I want to invite into my life. Something that will empower me and challenge me to elevate every area of my life.Something that is not based only how someone feels (because feelings change with the seasons), but based on someone making a conscious decision to sacrifice for my well being. That’s love.

Challenge: Let’s walk away from what the world teaches us about love. Let’s discover how God intended it to be. Are you pursuing a love that will cause you to stumble or a love that will push you higher? We must stop defining infatuation and calling it love.
