“And Jacob served seven years for Rachel; and they seemed unto him but a few days, for the love he had to her.”
Love never fails. Love is worth fighting for. Love is worth waiting for. Love–true love–has the ability to overcome the problems you are facing.
You were built to love! You were built to care, to be selfless, to give of your heart, body and soul fully and freely to that person who helps you see the world in it’s true beauty.
It isn’t love that fails; that gives up or quits. We are the ones who too often give up on love!
Whatever the sacrifice; ending a relationship with someone who isn’t your true love, waiting to find the right person, making changes in your life to be the right person, holding on as tight as you can when you find the right person–love is worth it. Love is worth any and every sacrifice.
“To give ourselves totally to another person, as we do in marriage, is the most trusting step we take in any human relationship. It is a real act of faith–faith all of us must be willing to exercise. If we do it right, we end up sharing everything–all our hopes, all our fears, all our dreams, all our weaknesses, and all our joys–with another person. No serious courtship or engagement or marriage is worth the name if we do not fully invest all that we have in it and in so doing trust ourselves totally to the one we love. You cannot succeed in love if you keep one foot out on the bank for safety’s sake. The very nature of the endeavor requires that you hold on to each other as tightly as you can and jump in the pool together.”
