Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love.
1 Corinthians 16:13-14 NIV
This is my favorite verse about love. What it says is that love is a choice. Society tells us love is a feeling and when we make love a feeling, that’s when love fails. So many fall out of love because if this. There is without a doubt a moment in every relationship when facing a hill of some kind, a struggle one of you won’t feel like being loving. One won’t want to show love to the other because one you got hurt. It is why God tells us be on guard, stand firm, be strong, to do everything in love… Not do somethings in love, but do everything in love – all things.. You have to choose to love, Choosing to love in those moments is more powerful than anything you could ever do for your relationship. Choosing to love in all situations will radically change your life and the dynamics of your relationship. If you dare try; take the LOVE CHALLENGE and for the next week make everything you do, think, say, be with love at the center. Amen.
Love challenge – first and most importantly…Pray everyday together.
Day 1 do the little things, simply be the first to say I love you, ask how their day was. Communicate.
Day 2 Its all about the kiss. For no reason give them a kiss and through out the day and evening continue to give kisses. When and if you are asked why you did that, say because I love you.
Day 3 leave a love note where only they can find it.
Day 4 get them a card and a flower. enough said. ha
Day 5 Do something nice like wash the car, do the dishes clean the house give the kids a bath. something the other normally does – you will do it.
Day 6 write them a short letter about why you love them.
Day 7 go on a date.
