Perseverance. Stick-to-itiveness is so important. Paul and I have friends that we dearly love, but frequently butt heads with. We’ve all decided that we will persevere and love each other through the difficulties. Yes, there are days when we want to throw up our hands and give up, but we keep coming back to our love for each other and the deep awareness that God wants our friendship to work.
I’m of the opinion, that God feels the same way about marriage. We need to have the heart that chooses to stick with it. Yes, there will be difficult days, but it is worth the perseverance it takes to build that marriage where love rules and peace abides.
[Love] always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1 Corinthians 13:7 NIV
Be generous! Lori <><
