What ever happened to love? Remember the first time you looked in your Love’s eyes and saw the gentleness and peace of returned love. Remember when there was nothing you wouldn’t do for your life mate? Remember the kind words exchanged and that good morning kiss? What happened?
You worked hard to provide for the family. Long hours at your profession or striving to keep the home pulled together while the world pulled it apart. Running, constantly running from one sports event to another. What happened to the love?
Somewhere in the mix of life, faithfulness slipped away. There just wasn’t time for God if you were going to accomplish the things that were admirable and important. Slowly, it became harder to spend time with a Father that was so distant. It wasn’t long before you shoved Him in the back of your thoughts and quit caring.
Do you want your love back? Return to your 1st love and love will return to you.
Do this. Buy the New Testament version of the Bible known as “The Message” and read it straight through cover to cover as fast as you can. Write in the margins everything that comes to your mind.
Read fast. Write fast. Don’t let anything slow you down or prevent you from consuming the Word. Open your body, soul and spirit to God. Somewhere, sometime during the read you will find your 1st love. Love will return to you. It’s that simple.
It only takes a few days to consume a good book. The Message is THE good book. It took me less than 30 days to read it the first time while I worked a full time job. If your marriage has lost its love. Read the book and then read it again. You will find love. Guaranteed. But do you really care?
“Do you think their faithlessness cancels out his faithfulness? Not on your life! Depend on it: God keeps his word even when the whole world is lying through its teeth.” Paul
