It’s been three months since a possible door opened for love. Many things have happened. During these three months, heavy temptations came into play.
But today, on the 16th of April 2019 I was reminded that TRUE LOVE perseveres.
It perseveres to HOPE for the coming of that long awaited promise.
It TRUSTS that God will open that door in His perfect time. It’s me trusting in him that my God’s Best will protect his testimony while that door hasn’t opened up yet. It is believing in the fight for purity before we meet at the altar and be declared as one before God.
Love is me PROTECTING my own testimony as I wait for my future husband. Am I being pure – emotionally and physically? It is also a reminder that the right guy will come with his passions and desires for me but will still chose to protect me – no matter how tempting the story line gets.
This is how the Bible has defined love:
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
1 Corinthians 13:7
And although I am still going to experience verses 4-5 in the romantic way, I am hopeful that in His perfect time, his promise for me to marry will come to pass.
Because as it says in 1 Corinthians 13:8
LOVE NEVER FAILS.
God is the ultimate form of love.
He will never fail me nor forsake me. This promise of marriage is just a little thing compared to the eternal glory and promises He has prepared for me when I will be reunited with my creator.
So I shall persevere… to hope, to trust and to protect my testimony as I wait.
