Day 22: Love is faithful
I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness. Then you will know the Lord.
Love is a choice, not a feeling. It is an initiated action, not a knee-jerk reaction. Choose today to be committed to love even if your spouse has lost most of their interest in receiving it. Say to them today in words similar to these, "I love you. Period. I choose to love you even if you don’t love me in return."
I always thought of love of as an action and not a feeling. Reading it as a choice is interesting. I have chosen to be committed to my husband. To be committed to loving him without doubt. Some people do not understand. It doesn't mean I don't get mad or upset with him, it doesn't mean we don't fight... not at all. It just means that even though we will have moments I choose to love him through those moments. I choose to love him even if he chooses not to love me back.
