I've been struggling with something to blog about lately, and advise on how to love one another when you don't "feel" it seems like a timeless topic.
The first thing to remember is that things change, for good or for bad situations and feelings are fleeting.
Do not say things to each other that you would not say to your best friend.
We know each other's vulnerable spots, never use that as a weapon, ever.
Home is a sanctuary.
Women, don't emasculate your men. Their balls don't belong in your purse.
When you don't feel love for somebody, write them a love letter. It will remind you and encourage them.
Respect each other.
Have faith that God has each of us on our own journey, sometimes we won't understand the "why's".
Spend time outside together.
Don't let disagreements fester.
Practice positive affirmations and self talk toward your loved ones, "Even though I am angry with them, I deeply love and accept them. I forgive them. I will encourage them, ect."
Send them text messages that say that you love them.
Pray Ephesians 6 over your household
Read 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 and substitute "I" for love in those Scriptures.
Remember that Romans 5:8 teaches us about love.
In the end, if we employ the above we will be loved and will love those the Lord has given us well. We will be a testimony to His faith and righteousness if we love.
