Today’s prompt: love me , love me not .
Dear friend , I wonder how often you go to the people you interact with and ask a question, “love me or love me not ? “
I mean , sure maybe you do not verbally ask that question . But without realizing it,I think we spend a great deal of time trying to get that question answered.
Which really is a result of a bunch of other questions . Do you notice me ? Am I important to you ? Am I known by you ?
Is my performance enough for you?
I loved performing as a kid . Granted I got kicked out of ballet because I was always put in the corner for talking in class , and I admit .. I am way to clumsy to be a ballerina . So I took up the not quite as popular but oh so fun clogging .
Big poofy dress with pantelloons, Crinlan and red checkered pattern .
So cool . I loved to perform and be noticed .
I still can find myself liking to perform and be noticed . Maybe without the tap shoes and dress .. But with a will you notice my performance ? Will you like me for a job well done ? Will I be enough for you ?
Do you love me ? You love me, you love me not .
Before I know it I have slipped into asking people to answer those questions . And I put pleasing people before anything else.
But as our Proverb of the day 29:25 says The fear of man lays a snare but whoever trusts in the Lord is safe !!
He never loves me not (God that is )
Living out of being loved allows me to freely love !
