The Becoming Woman

Some nights, I used to cry a lot. At a point it became a norm that defies timing. I could cry in the morning, afternoon and night. It was like I didn’t know what I would have done without my tears. . . but I was wrong.

Even when I knew God loved me, I still would cry. In my lukewarmness as a Believer, I still would cry.

Even when I was beyond convinced that my sins He remembered no more, I still cried.

A person who is afraid of love will behave in the most inappropriate ways in an effort to turn you off. When you find yourself trying your darnest to love a person who demonstrates that they are not willing to be loved, stop yourself! Stop trying to force them to accept what they obviously do not want or cannot handle. ~~~I.V
