Love. It makes the world go ‘round, right? Well, at least that’s the how the saying goes. But is it true? It should be, but so many people confuse love with things like jealousy or possessiveness. True love isn’t either of those things. But these 16 things are.

So here are the characteristics of REAL love:

1. Love means saying goodbye to expectations.
Sure, we all want people to behave the way we want them to. We want them to be more affectionate. Or more outgoing. Or smarter. Or more ambitious. All of these things are expectations. Expectations are just your requirements for “acceptability” of loving someone. But true love has no expectations. It simply loves “as is.”

2. Love doesn’t play the victim role or blame others.
Love doesn’t think others are “out to get them.” Love doesn’t think their loved ones are wrong. Love works together. It takes responsibility. It forgives and allows other people’s actions to be their journey. Love doesn’t take things personally.

3. Love includes letting go.
Love doesn’t equal possession. Just as the saying goes, “If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it’s yours. If it doesn’t, then it never was.” There is truth to that. Love allows people their freedom. It doesn’t hold tightly and crush their wings in attempt to keep them. True love doesn’t want to possess. It is willing to set you free if you want to be.

4. Love doesn’t require you to continue a relationship.
You may love someone very much, but you may not be compatible with them. Or they may drive you crazy with their continued disregard for your feelings. You can still love them, but that doesn’t mean you have to be with them. Love doesn’t mean that you have to stay, and stay and stay. You can leave the relationship and love them anyway.

5. Love has no room for jealousy.
Like possession, jealousy doesn’t equal love. We think that if we’re not jealous of our loved ones that it means that we don’t love them. True love has confidence in the quality of the relationship. It knows that the other person is happy and content coming back to you and only you.

6. Love is the absence of fear.
You can put all emotions on a continuum. On one end, you have love. Then appreciation. After that, it’s joy, happiness, contentment and satisfaction. On the opposite end of the continuum of love is fear. Other fear-based emotions include, hatred, insecurity, jealousy or greed.

7. Love is not needing, but wanting.
One of the things we try to teach kids is that there is a clear difference between a want and a need. Needing someone is a feeling based in fear. You fear that you can’t live without them, so you need them. And remember, fear is the opposite of love. Wanting someone in your life gives them the freedom to leave, but still shows them you love them.

8. Love is an action, not just a feeling.
Humans tend to be addicted to intense emotion — especially when it feels good. So, when we’re in love, we want to feel that way forever. But guess what? That higher than “Cloud 9” feeling goes away after a while. That doesn’t mean you don’t love the other person anymore, it just means that it’s not new anymore. So that’s where the action needs to kick in. Show the person you love them. Don’t just assume they know.

9. Love is unconditional.
The word “unconditional” means that there are no expectations or limitations set. To love unconditionally is a difficult thing, and most humans aren’t good at that. But true love really does love without trying to change the other person.

10. Love means putting other people’s needs equal to — or before — your own.
While people may be inherently selfish for survival purposes, this does not serve us well in relationships. If you don’t put other people’s needs at least equal to your own, they will grow resentful. Real love truly, genuinely cares about other people’s happiness and will go to great lengths to make people feel valued.

11. Love is the highest vibration emotion that there is.
Science has proven that emotions like love and fear have very different vibrations. They can actually measure them. Love vibrates very fast, whereas fear-based emotions (think jealousy, possessiveness, hatred, greed, etc.) vibrate very slowly. When you love completely and unconditionally, there is no fear involved. The vibrations of love make you feel good at all times.

12. Love requires attention.
Love doesn’t ignore. It doesn’t look the other way. It wants to be present and be together. When people are in love, sometimes they think that they don’t have to “do any more work.” But real love actually enjoys giving attention to another person. It feels good, and doesn’t see giving attention to another person as a chore.

13. Love understands and accepts differences.
Let’s face it: We’re all different. Even identical twins aren’t exactly the same. They have different experiences and outlooks about the world. Real love doesn’t make other people wrong for being different. When people truly love another person, they accept their differences.

14. Love varies in how it is expressed and accepted.
What makes us “feel loved” varies. In the book The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman, he explains the different ways people give and receive love: (1) Words (2) Acts of Service, (3) Giving Gifts, (4) Spending Time Together and (5) Touch. It’s important to discover other people’s love language so you can understand each other and give love in a way that the other person recognizes it.

15. Love makes you feel good, not bad.
Many people confuse being in a relationship with love. Just because you’re in a relationship doesn’t mean there is true love present. If there is jealousy, possessiveness, constant fighting, abuse (verbal, emotional or physical), that is not love. Refer back to #6. Those are fear-based emotions and actions.

16. Love has empathy.
Empathy is the ability to put yourself into another person’s shoes and see a situation from his/her point of view. Love has deep empathy. “When you hurt, I hurt.” People who truly love one another don’t want to hurt them. They want them to feel good. They care about their feelings and try everything they can to make them feel valued and worthy.

Remember, love is happiness, appreciation and feeling good. Anything other than that is not love. If we all loved one another as ourselves, the world would be a better place!

I personally took time and went through my personal worship experience with God. It is beyond what we think, see and feel. Worship is personal fellowship with God. When you experience his presence and understand the word worship it is totally different from what you have most Christians explaining about this experience. It’s not about good music it’s personal relationship with God.

Knowing him as your best friend, father and also your King. There’s more when you have a father to son friendship or having a close friend. Also, knowing him as a King who is in control and has authority of everything. You will start to experience great conversion with him, it will be totally different from the way you used to meet him. Your relationship will be growing everyday and this journey will not be difficult . He will guide you all the way and protect you. That is why we refer him as a good shepherd.

Happy Thanksgiving From FIKISHA

During this week of thankfulness, we had to let you know how glad we are that you’re a part of this family. Your prayers and financial support are vital to the personal and community transformation happening in Kenya (and around the world!).

Our team just returned from camp on the coast of Kenya! Read on to learn why that’s so cool.

Words from Communications Director and Co-Founder, Moses Aboka:
Life on the streets is always tough on these boys. Sometimes it’s even hard to make a good conversation with them either because they are too tired or too distracted. Doing a 5 day camp with them was amazing. We had lots of fun, had somewhere comfortable to sleep, strengthened our relationships, but most of all we struck the conversation that will go a long way in transforming their lives. Each boy after the camp set a one week goal towards their change. Some of the goals were as simple as calling their family within a week. I’ve witnessed hundreds of them changing and I believe the 28 that we had on the camp will fully transform in time.

Answered Prayers!

Thank you for being a part of Camp!

We asked you to pray and we want to share the impact that it had.

  • All our mentors reported good conversations and open hearts in the boys
  • We saw quite a few commitments to sobriety
  • Safe travel to and from the coast (including making it through threats of post-election violence)

The Moment you wake up in the morning and reflect what the Lord has done for you “Ebenezar- “Thus far the LORD has helped us” (1 Samuel 7:12). Reflecting back versus where I am at this point. God is good there is no point he will stop being good, faithful, Merciful and truthful to his people. He will never change he is truth to his words and promises to us. I took this moment to reflect my life the good things he has enabled me to achieve, the only thing i can do is to enter his gates with Thanksgiving and praise because he is real. This doesn’t mean trusting in him we won’t go through challenges but he promises us that wish shall overcome them. I have a reason to praise and Thank him for the great and wonderful things he has done in my life. God is good all the time.
