True Love

We throw this phrase around all the time. We want “true love” with the one we want to marry. We say things like “if you truly love me, you would _________.”

The other day, I posted this on my Facebook:

True love (even in a friendship kinda way) is finding joy in watching someone live & move in their passions, even knowing that it will probably take them away from you…

This has been especially true for me. I have loved having Cameron home, but knowing his heart, his passion, his calling, I know that he won’t stay for long before God calls him on to something bigger. And yet, there is nothing that brings me greater joy than watching him play music, sing whatever is on his heart, and worship God, even knowing that as he does these things, it means that he will follow the leading of God, no matter where it takes him.

Another one of those people is Trevor. Like Cameron, Trevor has a heart for worship & a heart for people. Here is a kid (and I call him a kid, but he’s not really, he’s a phenomenal young man) who, for as long as I have known him, really has only had one overwhelming desire: to follow God. Everything else stems from that. Just yesterday he posted about the first gig he wants to play, (click HERE if you want to hear about his awesome idea!) I very much enjoy my late night talks with him, and when we talk, he shares his dream and his passion to travel the country… and while there is a part of me that doesn’t want him to go cuz I’ll miss him like crazy, I’d go even more crazy if he didn’t get to follow his passions, so I find myself being filled with joy as he keeps talking about leaving, and I wouldn’t have it any other way…

I could go on and list the people whom God has brought into my life, only to call them away into something greater. But the joy that comes with being true friends is that knowing that no matter where God calls them, we will always be close, always be friends, and that God knows what he is doing.
