In the end, Love will prevail.

What does that even mean?

For me right now, it's a song lyric that I've cut out of the last six songs I've been putting together. The words themselves have been haunting me.

To me, it means that there will be tests, and there will be trials. As long as there are still humans here, injustice would still be a next door neighbor. People will always use there authority, and treat others like property. Politicians would be in it to get re elected rather than represent the greater and necessary good. Those who are blessed with material things will NEVER be satisfied with those same blessings, and will use those same things in self-worth searching of something that doesn't exist. The hardest part of all of that, is that we see a lot of that in the mirror.

The fortunate thing, is that's only the beginning of the story.

Through all the terrible things we see on a daily basis, there is one thing that prevails through all of that. Love gives us the patience to forgive those who treat us unjust on a daily basis. It gives us the peace to give away things that we can't even hold onto, no matter how hard we try. It gives us thick skin when selfish people try to speak louder in order to get there way. Love isn't "the answer", because for everyone, "the answer" is different; however, Love is the one thing all those answers have in common. It's the reason why Jesus made it the Law that outweighs all other law.

So no matter what happens in this new, unpredictably volatile world, those who live in Love, will always stand tall.
