Love is an amazing gift from God. When our hearts are open to this emotion, nothing can compare to it. It is like a raging fire that burns from within. It is this love that we must learn to tame lest it turns into lust. To be in love is intoxicating. The fragrance of another can be enough to set us off. These feelings come to most everyone. However, it is how we take on these feelings, determines who we are inside. The Lord has someone special for each of us. They are most beautiful and have the qualities we need to be happy. When we discover that person it will feel like time flies while around them. We must pray always that we may be in the right frame of mind while alone with them. The temptations are strong and we need the Lord’s help. The Lord is our shield and if both the man and woman love God then there will be a wall against anything contrary to the Lord. For the love of God is most powerful of all. Lean on it and you will be watched over. He will keep you safe.
How amazing would it be if Christians marry someone who holds the same beliefs and values. Dating within the walls of your faith will bring much more joy to your marriage. The love of Christ will reign supreme in your home as you both live each day for the Lord. If you are in this stage of your life, I pray that the Lord be with You. Get to know the person you are dating. Once you know that he or she is the one, it is important to tell the significant other that you love them. Not only while dating is this important but after marriage, remember to always tell your spouse how important they are to you and that you love them. Courting doesn’t stop after marriage. We must let the flame live on every day in our marriage. Oh Lord, may the love I have for You be in my marriage. You have my heart. I need a love that will bring eternal joy to this family. Thank You for everything You are to me. Your love brings me true happiness. I praise You. I love You.
11 Then Jacob kissed Rachel, and lifted up his voice and wept.
16 Now Laban had two daughters: the name of the elder was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel.
17 Leah’s eyes were delicate, but Rachel was beautiful of form and appearance.
18 Now Jacob loved Rachel; so he said, “I will serve you seven years for Rachel your younger daughter.”
19 And Laban said, “It is better that I give her to you than that I should give her to another man. Stay with me.”
20 So Jacob served seven years for Rachel, and they seemed only a few days to him because of the love he had for her.
