Today I am sharing a few nuggets on love that has really been my standard and helped me navigate my way through singleness and now in marriage.
Being single is not easy, you really go through so many stages and emotions in your mind before reaching acceptance stage where you’re actually okay with loving you and just living your best life in Christ!! I really discovered who I was in my single days, I travelled, found out what types of eggs I like ( if you love Julia Roberts like me then you know why this is so important), most importantly I discovered my purpose and what I was called to do on earth, and realised that “the one” should compliment this purpose!
I have come to learn that “the one” may not always come in the package you are expecting, and most times because we are looking for bigger and better we fail to recognise the diamond in the making! This by no means suggests that realistic, and Godly standards should be dropped. It simply means we should dig deeper. When it comes to love and stop focusing on superficial and materialistic expectations!
I have also learnt that everyone’s journey to love is not the same and there is no rule book on how to fall in love. I learnt to stop wishing for other people’s story, and to accept and build my own love story peculiar to me!
My overall lesson on love is that Gods love is ultimate, no one can ever love me more than Him, likewise, my love for my self is highly Important because it is impossible to give or receive love when we cannot even love ourselves.
This quote about love from my daily living guide was the standard before I met my husband, during our courtship and now in our marriage!
Love is patient, love is kind it does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. … It’s a beautiful passage for sure as it describes love. It describes a feeling.
I always say God is love, and He knows the exact perfect way you need to be loved and if anyone wants to know exactly how to love you the best person to go to would be the one who knows your perfect love language and can give them access to the perfect love designed especially for you!
