HOW TO FIND TRUE LOVE



Welcome to purposeful living today.

 The world we live in today cannot be a peaceful place to stay if love is lacking amongst humans. We pray that as you begin a New week and beyond, that you express love to as many as you come in contact with. We wish you a week full of blessings and favour.

"He who gives heed to the word will  prosper, and happy is he who trusts in the LORD". Proverbs 16:20.



WHAT  IS TRUE LOVE?

In our day and age, the word ‘love’ has almost lost its meaning. We have grown so accustomed to the Hollywood idea of love that we have started to forget its true form. Love is not what we see on TV or read about in books, it is not the thing we have learned to expect from fairy tales. Instead, it is something very complex, but also very beautiful.

When talking about what love is, the book of 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 best explains it, where it is described as  something patient and kind; something that is not proud, does not boast, is not easily angered or self-seeking. Love does not keep a record of wrongs; instead, it protects, trusts, hopes and perseveres.


Based on this description, true love is not a mere fleeting feeling towards another person. It is something everlasting, which can overcome everything that tries to destroy it. Love is not only the emotions or feelings, but it is also the actions, as says 1 John 3:18.

It will probably not surprise you that you can easily replace the word ‘love’ with ‘God’, and the idea will not lose its meaning, as ‘God is love’ (1 John 4:8), and those who do not love do not know God. This means that as long as you know and believe in God, you can experience true love, His love that He has given us. We love because He first loved us, according to 1 John 4:19.

As you can see, the biblical idea of true love is the ideal one everyone should strive for and not lusting  or being infatuated  about another. It is a very serious commitment that should not be taken lightly, but it is also very pure and unadulterated.

HOW TO FIND  TRUE LOVE
So how does one go looking for love? Well, as you probably know, it is no simple task, so we want to give you a hand with this. Here are some tips that can help you in your search for true love:
  • Love God: You cannot  say you are ready to love  a person unconditionally  when you do not love God or know Him. You must first be acquainted with your Maker to find true  love.
  • Love unconditionally: We are supposed to love all people despite our differences. This does not mean that we have to agree with everyone, but that we need to accept them and love them for who they are.

  • Love You: Do not say because you love others, you put yourself aside. Only you can love you the way you want. No one else can. Do not neglect showing love to yourself in the process of loving others. When people see you love yourself, they Will be left with no option but to love and respect you.

  • Look past the appearances: As stated in 1 Samuel 16:7, the Lord looks at the heart, while man looks at the outward appearance. If you want to find your true love, you will need to learn how to look past the pretty face.

  • Love and praise the Lord: As long as you have love for Him in your heart, you shall find someone who has just as much love for Him as you do.

  • Be serious: True love is no joke, so be prepared to face everything that comes with it, including the challenges that come with it. Aside this, keep away every spirit of flirting, confusion and indecision and let God lead you.

HOW TO KNOW TRUE LOVE

It is relatively easy to fall in love, but how do you know that it is actually your one true love and not just another average romance? Well, first of all, you need to ask yourself: does the person you are in love with believe in God, love Him and devote their love to Him? If he/she loves God, then know that it won't be hard for the person to show unconditionally love to you.

Also check out these other points:
  • Have they given their all to the Lord?
  • Are they ready to give their time and apply the necessary effort to keep your relationship (and later marriage) going?
  • Is this the person you want to spend the rest of your life with?
  • Do you love them as much as you love yourself?
  • Do you love them unconditionally and accept them with all their flaws?
If you can say ‘yes’ with certainty to all of the questions above, it is highly likely that you have indeed found your true love. As long as they feel the same way about you.

However, the hardest part is just ahead, after you are united with a marital bond, you will have the rest of your life to spend with this one person, love them despite their flaws and keep the love alive, yes, we know it is not an easy task.

Regardless of how (or where) you decide to look for your true love, you should always have God in your heart. As long as He is on your side, you cannot lose. 

You can begin a relationship now with the Lord Jesus Christ by saying this prayer:

 Lord Jesus Christ I acknowledge that I am a sinner, I believe in your death and resurrection. I ask you to forgive me my sins, I reject the devil and all his works and l welcome the Holy Spirit into my life. I declare today I am born again and I am a child of God in Jesus name .Amen .  

If you just said that prayer I welcome you to God's family. Look for a Bible believing church where God's word is taught and fellowship there.
