Why do we call it falling in love? I think it’s because our priorities fall. Our dreams and aspirations bend. They don’t disappear, but suddenly they open up and let someone in. The one we love has dreams, too. They mesh and blend together until they become something new.
Our plans for the future fall. Our self-awareness falls. Our focus on anything or anyone else falls.
To fall in love is to dive first into the unknown. It is to welcome possible heartache and pain. It is to grow and learn with each other. It is to ride a roller coaster of emotions. Falling in love means deciding to place someone above yourself.
“If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God. And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.”~1 John 4:15-18
