show your color

I think this is important

Get to know someone before starting a relationship with them. Make them your best friend and let them become comfortable around you. I see so many relationships that are rushed and end early because each person failed to really know the person. When we meet someone, most of us aren’t ourselves at the start. We are nervous, taking small bites of food and making sure not to laugh too loud or obnoxiously. We don’t truly know how someone is like or what their actual personality is until some time has passed. Take your time with your relationships. Let yourself and the person become relaxed enough to show your true colors.

i challenge you

to wait for love. not the kind you saw in disney movies and chick flicks and read about in books. real, nitty gritty, get through anything no matter what it takes kind of love.

i’ve had the privilege of seeing it a few times in my twenty years, but not often. it’s rare and real and true and strong. it comes in glimpses and eyebrow raises and eyelash flutters. it comes in door-holding, and car door-opening, and coming to the front door to pick you up for a date. it comes in smiling for no reason at all aside from the fact that person - YOUR person - is next to you. you feel safe. you feel at ease. you feel wanted.

i challenge you to wait from someone who doesn’t run away when you show your truest colors. who stays through the navy blues and the pitch blacks and the bleeding reds. who celebrates during the bright yellows and the vibrant greens and the pure whites. someone who paints your world every shade of certainty.

your person will drop the paintbrush at some point, though. they will tear your canvas but that’s okay. because the inevitable truth is that they’re human. they will mess up. sometimes accidentally. sometimes purposefully. but they will apologize. and they will keep trying to make you better. 

God tells us in His Word that He will make everything beautiful in its time, and to not awaken love before its time. i beg of you to heed His Word, friend. cling to what is good and true. hold onto Him with every fiber that is in you. His love is a love that will NEVER fail. His love is what will bring you an earthly love.

this is my challenge to you, friend: don’t settle for anything less than extraordinary. 

I gave you access to my heart.
 I told you to take care of it and you did,
 but that was before you showed me 
your true colors.
 I never thought you’d turn out like this,
 because I saw an angel within you.
 And that’s when I realized, 
that the devil was once an angel.

I’m here, Charles, to tell you that I’m going to kill your daughter. Penelope, is it? And once she’s gone… once she's dead… then you’ll understand how I feel. And you’ll wish you hadn’t changed the rules.
