More than a feeling(part 3)

This is the last part to More than a feeling. And I would like to start out with...

John 15:13
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

I have talked about
Fireproof, and Pirates of the Caribbean. But none of those could compare to the love that was shown in Lord of the Rings. I have forever loved the Bridge scene, where Arwen gives Aragorn the Evenstar. I know that a lot of people were offended by the kiss that Aragorn, and Arwen shared during that scene, but I wasn't. If it had been ANY other movie I would have been, but this is Middle-Earth. In Middle-Earth, a kiss is a promise that you will marry. And that you have given your heart to that special someone. But a lot of people don't realize that. The thought that Arwen gave up her immortal life gets to me. Though I know Elizabeth's sacrifice was selfless, but it just does not compare! Whenever I watch Arwen's Vision, I can't help but cry my eyes out.

The love that Arwen had for Aragorn would last for a lifetime. That's exactly how I want my marriage to be.

God Bless!

More than a feeling(part 2)

If you were to go to just about anyone, and told them that love was a choice, and not a feeling, they would probably laugh in your face. That's because they don't have Christ within us like we do. They know nothing except what they feel, therefore love is a feeling.

“Meeting you was fate,

becoming your friend was a choice,

but falling in love with you I had no control over.”

That is the dumbest thing I've ever heard!
What most people think is love, is really just an attraction. You can say that you "fell in love at first sight" but you really didn't. You probably just thought the person was pretty or handsome. There's where the attraction came in.

Okay now for the picture from above. This picture came from
Pirates of the Caribbean. Now I am NOT saying that you can find true love, from this movie. I'm just using examples. What I want to say a bible verse....

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves." -- 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Now let's think about the "It does not envy" part. That's when I think of when Elizabeth tells Norrington, that if he save's Will's life, she will marry him. She was willing to marry the man she did not love(not even sure if she liked him) so she could save the man she did. Now in my opinion, that's awesome. I can't imagine me doing anything like that. And I can't neglect to say how loving Will was to Elizabeth, I love when he says to Jack "I'd die for her!". Just little things about movies encourage me.

God Bless!

More than a feeling(Part 1)

The question that has been asked over, and over again, "Is love a choice, or a feeling?". I loved the lyrics to the movie Fireproof.....

Love is not a place
To come and go as we please
It's a house we enter in
And then commit to never leave

We look at dating, and all we see is teenagers having a crush on each other, what's the difference if people who are going to get married don't anything more than feelings? In Fireproof, it is clear that Caleb, and Catherine don't share the same feelings anymore. And the picture above, is the result of a marriage that is based on feelings. We can't truly love someone if we don't have Christ's love within us.

"How can I show love to somebody who over and over and over and over constantly rejects me?"

"That's a good question."

God did not look at the world, and "fall in love" with us. It was a choice.

God Bless!

Why we choose Arwen

There is no possible way you can like Eowyn over Arwen, if you believe in being a stay-at-home wife. In some opinions, they like Eowyn because they say she is the stronger lady. Well, what does strong really mean? It means having a great power. If you would open your eyes you would find that it was Arwen, who WAS indeed afraid of death, gave up her life for the one she loved, for it was God's will. If that is not strong, I don't know what is.

But in most opinions....

Eowyn, is the stronger lady. For she killed the Witch King(not really. Merry did). But in The Two Towers, Eowyn tells Aragorn that she does not fear death or pain. How come going to war is brave if you don't even fear it???

I asked my older brother who he would marry if he had the choice. He said "Arwen." I asked him why he would choose Arwen when everybody else says that Eowyn is indeed the braver one. He told me that he wanted someone who was willing to wait for him.

Think again now, who was really the strongest lady.

The Heart is deceitful above all things...

....That's why I let Christ come in. I hope you enjoy my blog. It may get kind of weird at times, but endure with me okay? I just wanted to say its great to be here, and I hope to have many more posts in the future.
