Love cannot be by Duress

Love cannot be by Duress

No matter how much I love a person and no matter how much time is lost due to indecisiveness, commitment to a life lasting love affair cannot begin because of undue pressure, for the reason that it will happen if it is meant to be.  I believe in my case it is meant to be.  But must there be an ending or an ever lasting chapter?  Maybe you are searching for something nonexistent!  Which is unnecessary time lost?

 

Do I not seek after your desire “like a moth to a flame burned by the fire, my love is blind can’t you see my desire.”  “But that is not the way love goes.”

 

1Co 13:3 If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.

1Co 13:4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 

1Co 13:5 It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs. 

1Co 13:6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 

1Co 13:7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres.

1Co 13:8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 

1Co 13:9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 

1Co 13:10 but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. 

1Co 13:11 When I was a child, I talked like a child; I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. 

1Co 13:12 Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

1Co 13:13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

 

 

Love Paul
