OUR DIFFERENCES ; OUR STRENGTH
Relationships can be hard sometimes, and at other times, they can seem all rosy. It is amazing that you could be one moment in bed with your partner, all cuddled up and drowning in the river of love, and in the next moment, you do not want to have absolutely anything to do with them. Yes, that’s how relationships can be, take note here that I am consciously avoiding the word `love`, because it isn’t love that makes it happen that way, it is just individual/personality differences.
Love doesn’t go from liking this person to hating them, (although they say there is a thin line between love and hate) no, love is love. Once you love a person, you love them. Nothing changes it, except individual differences and other situations that may cause you sometimes to think you detest them with every fibre of your being, but you know when you look deep within you, you know that you still love them.
Remembering the late Dr. Myles Munroe in his preaching `The Myth of Singleness`, he said of all the divorce cases he had handled, none of the couples say they don’t love their partners anymore, they only find that there are attitudes or behaviours they just cannot put up with anymore, that is, these attitudes have become overbearing, hence, the reason for the divorce. I was also opportune to be with a lovely lady over the weekend and she was going through a divorce procedure with her husband, after all was said, she said she still loved him despite all that had happened, and that everything would be fine if the factor causing their problems was no more. So you see, love doesn’t go away, as long as it is the genuine God-kind.
Alright the gist I have for you today is this: fight for what you love, fight for what you already have, do not throw away that which you know you have due to temporary situations and/or issues. Resolve your differences in the most amicable way possible. I know it isn`t always as easy as it seems as you read this, but then it is always worth the try, it is always worth the fight.
To become victorious, you would have to jump through all the hurdles that may be presented along your path, you would have to defeat all the obstacles. Also, remember to pray, pray for patience, pray for endurance, pray for understanding, pray for long-suffering, pray for faith. Ciao!
