What is the secret of long lasting love? For sure it is not just about strong physical attraction or sex, but more, a lot more.
This series is based on the words of wisdom by a very Godly and respectable man whom I will reveal at the end of the Lasting Love series blog. There are seven secrets of lasting love according to this man who has been married for 54 years, both he and his wife devoted to God. He passed away in 2005. He states, “The great miracle of love is not love at first sight, but after you’ve taken a long, long look and can continue to love. Keep the honey in the honeymoon, keep the love life alive, and how to keep the love boat afloat.” It is going to be a consolidation of his wisdom as well as my own insights.
Lasting Love 1: Fortify faith. To the wife. (1Peter 4-5). It is not the outward appearance that captivates your husband, or anyone else for that matter, the hair extensions, the breast enhancement, the botox etc., instead, it is the unfading beauty of your inner being, the nurturing and gentle spirit who put their faith in God and act according to what pleases Him. In return, the husband would treat his wife with such respect and appreciation relinquishing the effects of the temporary outer surface, but seeing her as someone worthy of reverence and love that is everlasting. There's a saying, outer beauty fades, inner beauty lasts forever.
Husband and wife fortify faith by studying the Bible, applying the wisdom then running together in it, encouraging one another and building each other up. Gaining from your own experiences not from the experiences of other believers, God has different intentions for each of us. – Rick Warren
Eventually, with God in between a husband and wife, the bond strengthens, you see no one but each other, become truly as ONE in marriage. Do you agree?
Until then... LOVE ONE ANOTHER!
