Lady Talk: How to know if his love is real

Filed under: relationships — Tags: , , , , — clairesant @ 8:14 am

Most people think love exists because of physical expressions that are present in the relationship. We usually base it on feelings.  Can we really guess if two people are really in love or if their love is real? Can we safely say that when we see a man and a woman holding hands together, hugging or kissing, they really love each other? It is one thing to know if you are in love. It is another thing to know if your partner really loves you.  Maybe we should define what love is. There are many types of love. Many books have been written about this subject. But the best definition can be found in the Bible. It clearly defines love in 1 Corinthians 13. I’ve just clearly understood the application of 1 Corinthians 13 in a man-woman relationship. When your man’s love points you towards God then that is real love. What do I mean by this? Ladies, I’m sure some of you have experienced or are experiencing this. Whenever your man demonstrates his love, care or thoughtfulness, how do you feel? You feel great, right? But have you ever felt that your man’s acts and goodness remind you of God’s love? I did and I still do. I’m not an emotional type of woman but I can’t help but cry whenever he demonstrates his care and love for me. Whenever I’m down or sick, he’s there to comfort, encourage and take care of me. Those simple gestures, his forgiveness, patience, gentleness – I believe is God’s way of telling me that He loves me so much and He cares for me. That is why He brought this man into my life to love, cherish and take care of me.  In the end, God is glorified. Is God glorified in your current relationship? I’m convinced that it is indeed easy to have a boyfriend and have as many boyfriends as you want. But it is hard to find someone who loves and not lusts over you, who is not just after your face or your body but someone who wants to live and grow old with you. Someone who is willing to wait to enjoy you until marriage. Wait for that man in your life. Because he is worth the wait and you are worth loving.
