Love’s Biggest Frustration
Unrequited love is the biggest frustration anyone can face. When you care deeply for someone, you want them not to simply care a little, but care just as much as you do… or more! As sons and daughters, we are frustrated when our dads fail to show that they care. The mixture of anger and sadness causes a deep resentment that makes us want to build walls and close ourselves off.
What we do not often consider is the reactive effect of our decisions.
When a father neglects or disappoints his child, the negative feelings affect the son or daughter.
When the son or daughter closes up and retreats, this hurts them and whoever their life partner is/will be because instead of choosing to address the problem, frustration causes them to hide from the issue. Conflict avoidance…
The ultimate breech is in the relationship you have with God the Father, who gave His only son as a sacrifice so you could live loving those who reject you, ignore you, and spitefully use you. Refusing his grace and shoving away His will for you to forgive will plunge you into deeper anguish and misery.
Have you considered the frustration God suffers when you push Him away? You feel betrayed because your dad shares your blood, your genes, and should care about you as a human being… right? Well God formed you while you were in your mom’s belly. He knows every detail about your likes, dislikes, and way of thinking. He obsesses over your every move. When you fail to communicate with Him, acknowledge Him in your life, and return His love through your obedience, He is crushed by the rejection.
Now that’s Love’s BiGGEST frustration.
God is Love. He gets frustrated with you when you choose not to trust Him.
