So the words of Warren Barfield’s song “Love Is Not a Fight” linger in my head. Driving at 4:30 AM last night in the curvy mountains of Virginia gave me time to listen to it on repeat.
I encourage you all to find this song and listen to it. It speaks so much truth it hurts to listen to.
I know that it’s playing on radio stations around the country, so if you’re reading this in Tulsa, Oklahoma or mid-country New Jersey, listen to this song, call your radio station, tell them people NEED to hear this song.
I believe in these lyrics so much, hopefully you will too.

Love is not a place
To come and go as we please
It’s a house we enter in
And then commit to never leave

Lock the door behind you
Throw away the key
We’ll work it out together
Let it bring us to our knees

Love is a shelter in the raging storm
Love is peace in the middle of a war
If we try to leave, may God send His angels to guard the door
No, love is not a fight but it’s something worth fighting for.

To some, love is a word
That they can fall into
But when they’re falling out
Keeping that word is hard to do

Love will come to save us
If we’ll only call
He will ask nothing of us
But demand we give our all

I will fight for you
Would you fight for me?
It’s worth fighting for
