Wish to be strong? Learn about the amazing and all conquering power of love!
One man wanted to be very strong. He asked God for power and absence of fear and ability to cope with anything he faces. He prayed for a long time and imagined how God would make him so strong and tough that no one would match his abilities. God heard his request.
Once he met another man who told him:
“The power is in love. Go to the desert, visit woods and act there being guided by the wholehearted love.”
The man did not understand the stranger, but he went to the desert. He had no clue of how love could help him. He walked the desert and met no one there. The sun was burning hard on him; there was no water. He had no more strength to go on. When he was about to quit, he remembered the power of love. “Ok, I am going to die anyway. So, I’ll spend what is left to send this world the message of love and gratitude, because I really loved this life. I should not have wanted to become strong. I just had to love my life, and that’s it.”
So the man started to speak out his love for life, the sun, and the desert. The love has melted his soul, and he stopped feeling the heat of the desert. He got more strength and was much surprised. He moved on singing a song and saw a forest far away. The love has helped the man to go through the desert and stay alive.
He went on not knowing that his death waited behind the next bush. There was a snake there ready to strike. When the snake moved to bite him, his hearts automatically started pouring out love. Then he saw a miracle: the snake turned away and did not hurt him. The man moved forward.
He cheered up a bit comprehending the power of love. He did not focus on loving himself, but those he met on his way. He entered the woods with joy in his heart. But he got scared in the wild. Something was walking and flying over his head. He heard some creepy noises. The fear immobilized him. He thought: “I am going to die now.” Then he heard the roaring of a beast right next to him. But he remembered about the power of love again!
Once more he started pouring out and expressing his love for the woods and the beasts in it. He saw another miracle. The fear passed away. The man felt that the woods were created by God as a wonderful living house. It is inhabited by many of God’s creatures. So, he went on. Nothing touched him, and as the dawn came, he realized the amazing power of love. He knew there was nothing more potent than the Love. No arrow of the enemy can hurt you if you love them. Even animals can understand the language of love and stop killing each other.
The whole nature feels love and responds to it. It rewards the evil ones with trouble. The man thanked the Lord for giving him the joy in his heart and returned with that love to his home.
Love has the power to make whole the broken and distressed things and people. Use it to change this world for better.
