Love Bears All Things
I was 20 years old when I first said ‘I love you’ to my sweet man. I was smitten and in love. That was a long time ago, but the love I feel for him today is deeper and stronger than I ever thought possible. How could I be so lucky to snag him all those years ago? Luck as you know had nothing to do with it. He’s the blessing God had planned for me. Just as God knows the numbered hairs on my head, He also knew I needed someone who would be strong, kind, protective, supportive, thoughtful and who loves fiercely. I’m so thankful my sweet man is all of those things. God gave me someone to love and adore.
God’s Word tells us in 1 Corinthians 13:7, “Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.”
Love with an Everlasting Love
As my husband leads our family he does so with Christ at the center. Our commitment to the Lord, to each other, and to our family keeps us from being ensnared by worldly things and allows us to focus on eternal things. We aren’t perfect by any stretch and we don’t always agree on everything, but I love him with an everlasting love. That’s what I want our marriage to reflect. I want to love my husband just like Christ loves me.
Jeremiah 31:3 says, “I have loved you with an everlasting love.”
Here are 7 ways to show your husband you love and adore him.
- Hold his hand whenever you have an opportunity.
