Persevering Love

Written by Boyd Bailey

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- February 28, 2013

Love always perseveres. 1 Corinthians 13:7

Love does not give up on those it loves. When it is hurt, it forgives. When it is rejected, it accepts. When it is misunderstood, it is kind. When it is ignored, it serves. When it is unloved, it loves. Persevering love waits on the one it loves, especially when necessary to fulfill the parent’s expectations. This respectful love grows into a responsible and maturing man or woman. Those who endure in their love relationships come out the other side deeper in love with one another.

The enemy attacks at points of exposure in our relationships. Busyness is his brainchild. If Satan can cause us to neglect the people who know us the best, so they like us the least, he is happy. The deceiver knows how to shift our affections to  love only work. However, your tireless love will not fall to the temptation of exchanging your spouse’s respect for status. Moreover, love your mate in tough times. Give to them, when they have nothing to give you. Love is loyal.

So Jacob served seven years to get Rachel, but they seemed like only a few days to him because of his love for her. Genesis 29:20

Is your husband or wife really struggling with a situation or person at their job? If so, patiently listen and understand their conflicted heart. Hold them without offering pep talks or quick fixes, just be there to love them when they need you. Has your teenager fallen to temptation? When a child lets you down make sure you do not come down on them too hard. Love breaks their will without breaking their heart. Be tough and tender. Be firm but fair. Love them back to God.

Above all, your Heavenly Father has a hot heart for you, especially in the heat of your challenging circumstances. He pursues you with His relentless love and resolve. Like a groom who excitingly anticipates his wedding ceremony, celebration, consummation and growing old together, so Christ loves you passionately and can’t wait to do life with you. The love of the Lord is long suffering for you. Thus, give thanks to God. He is good, His love for you endures forever!

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His love endures forever. Psalm 136:1

Prayer: Heavenly Father thanks for being good to me and for Your enduring love toward me.

    I’m the owner of JustCBD Store label (justcbdstore.com) and am trying to broaden my wholesale side of company. I am hoping someone at targetdomain give me some advice ! I considered that the most suitable way to accomplish this would be to talk to vape companies and cbd stores. I was hoping if anybody at all could suggest a reliable site where I can purchase Vape Shop B2B Database I am already considering creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. On the fence which one would be the most suitable solution and would appreciate any assistance on this. Or would it be simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?
