A paradoxical oxymoron?

To love means loving the unlovable.
To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable.
Faith means believing the unbelievable.
Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.

-Gilbert Keith Chesterton

Just as troubles come and make you tremble, causing your knees to wobble like jelly.
Then the thunder strikes causing all your fears you never knew you had to flow out endlessly like a flowing river which leads to the sea that knows no end.
Silent and slow.
Causing the already excruciating pains, to only hurt and bleed even more.
What else could be worse you thought?
And a stroke of lightning puts an end to it all. An end to everything only did you realise you have nothing left.
Nothing to hold on to. Not a single form of protection.
Bare and empty.

But what lies beneath it all, is one thing. The one thing that can turn things around.

And that is hope.
But one must know how to love first.

With love comes faith, and with faith, comes hope. As they say, there are three important elements in life. Love, faith and hope, and love, is the greatest of them all. Without love, you won’t have faith, and without faith, you won’t have hope. Thus love leads to everything and everything comes from love.

Faith doesn't come overnight. Faith is built and grown over a period of time. To have faith is to have no fear or doubt in whatever you believe, but, remember, faith cannot exist without love, this is because with love comes belief, and with that comes faith. Faith does the right thing at the right time.

All these come with a choice. You make a choice to love, you make a choice to have faith, and then you will have hope in life. Love is as much a question of the will as it is of the emotion.
And once again, with love comes faith, and with faith comes hope, and with hope comes life. A life without love is no life at all.

You wonder, why? Why had this all had to happen?
One can only cease to wonder truly.
Was it a consequence to all the things that shouldn't have been done?
Or just as a warning?
Or perhaps it's one of those 'life test'
