Day 20} Love Always Perseveres

 1 Corinthians 13: 4-7
"Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongsLove does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres".

Love always perseveres; means it never  gives up.  
It never loses sight of its purpose.
It keeps going strong no matter what bumps in the road get in the way.
It is constant; it sees beyond those bumps and into Gods glory.

This goes not only for my children; but my husband first and foremost.

I was involved in a conversation regarding marriage, and how people change into other people, resulting in one day down the road it just not working out anymore.  
The problem with that is we are all so prone to the feeling of being in love all the time; and that's just not realistic.
It is possible to grow different, and grow together in your differences; because "Love Perseveres".  If you compare that to a relationship with your children; there are going to be times you will experience a changed child; sometimes you don't like what you see, or the direction they are headed in; but you persevere - and continue to Love them anyway.

If it is so easy to Love my children this way with no if's and's or but's; then how much more am I called to Love my husband this way; even more so- because our Love for each other is to be the solid headship of our family.  

Human Love isn't perfect; that is why Love always Perseveres.  This kind of Love isn't Fearful of changes in the future; because it knows that no mater what you'll grow together; through it all!
