The Bible tells us that true love is unconditional. It doesn’t keep a record of wrongs. It protects us. It heals us.
TRUE LOVE NEVER FAILS US.
Even so, there may be moments we feel like giving up on our spouse and ending our relationship. Why is this? We don’t foresee the healing in our future. We don’t want to put in the work and take the time to get to the root issues.
We’d rather just start over.
There will be times when we don’t feel like giving our spouse our time and attention–
when we feel like we’re just roommates,
when we feel like he/she isn’t giving us what we want,
when the thought of talking with him/her is exhausting,
when it feels like we can’t do anything right,
when we wonder if the relationship was a mistake,
when we decide to stay together “just for the kids,”
when we aren’t sure if we can trust him/her anymore,
when we hate being together, but don’t know what to do about it.
These situations can be hurtful, confusing, and potentially devastating to a relationship. But, THEY ARE NOT A REASON TO GIVE UP.
DON’T HOLD BACK. We can’t give up when it gets hard. We must press on. So we’re not left wondering how things could have been.
When you love someone, you FIGHT!
