1Corinthians 13:13-And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
Prior to my husband and I deciding to get married, we had been faced with some true struggles that usually tear most relationships apart. Finances, communication, and both struggling with some deep rooted issues, seemed to be the theme of our relationship. We had begun to detach emotionally, and physically. What else was left, we both thought. I've always been a runner, if something doesn't fit or "jive" well. I put on my Nike sneakers and head for the hills. My older sister would always tell me, instead of you dealing with the issues, you would much rather place them in a bag and toss them out. That was then-you see, even in the mist of our trials, God had begun creating our testimony. He began showing us, individually what our lives would be like without the other. He(husband)went on vacation, and while he was away; I fasted, and meditated. Not realizing God would have him do the same. I remember being in our living room, crying out to the Lord and him speaking to me as if he was an old friend sitting on my couch. He said, the man that you knew that went down, will not be the same one returning. HE was right. I remember talking to him( my husband) on the phone while he was on vacation, and he seemed so relaxed and free speaking to me. I felt the EXACT same way. He(my husband) said, babe, I don't know what it is, but you seem so different. I said, yeah, you too. One of the scriptures that God gave me, that we used in our ceremony, 4 months later was 1Corinthians 13:13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. After it is all said and done, the three things that remain, will be faith(believing things that are unseen) hope(a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen) and love(an intense feeling of deep affection) No matter what he and I endured, God said it didn't matter. The love that we shared, was enough to sustain even the most difficult circumstances. Love covers a multitude of things-Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through .
