Love TriumpedJesus came to a broken world; a world in need of love, healing, and peace. He came to this world with a humble presence, wrapped in love, and the only gift of life. He arrived as a babe, a precious gift as the angels rejoiced. Although the angels couldn’t understand the salvation He would be; they celebrated Him.

As the month of my anniversary is arriving soon, I can’t help but reflect on our growth as a couple or individually.

Our love has changed, grown, and has remained through some difficult storms. Yet, our love has triumphed! Love can’t be defeated! Oh, it’s been seriously tested, I can testify to that. Give me a good cup of coffee and your ear! Yet, if I spoke I would share how our love has triumphed against all odds. What are some of the odds? Being married young college students, three children within the first four years, nearly losing one child to spinal meningitis, husband backsliding, ministry nearly destroying us, bankruptcy to name a few. Nevertheless, I have seen God’s love hold me through it all, His healing power revealed, and restoration of my husband’s life. Would I trade the road I have traveled? Never!

Our faith is a journey of learning the depths of God; each trial takes us deeper to reflect upon it.

Love came to rule in my life! Love conquers every trial; nothing can separate me from it. Even my sin can’t separate me from His love; it’s why He came. God’s choice was to love us at our worst and He made us His own.

Love is a choice of looking past our sins and seeing the need. Love doesn’t keep a record of wrongs, so can you lay the wrongs aside. Can you see your spouse is growing in faith? Can you look past their weakness? Love isn’t out to destroy the heart of their spouse; it’s seeks out to heal it. Realize your love is a gift to your spouse, it’s truly what they seek during the darkest nights. It’s just like the Star of Bethlehem, it has to be shining to show the way. So, shine with the love of God to bring peace into his world. Love transforms lives but in marriage it’s what keeps it solid.

Building strong marriages together,

Below you will find a few scriptures on love to bring encouragement.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.

John 3:16  For God so loved the world,that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

Romans 5:8 but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 8:37-39  No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

1 John 3:1  See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
