Look at this. Just take a moment. This is unconditional, true love right here, people. Eyes closed, just taking in the very essence of the person you were born to be with for your entire life. And as every day passes I see these things and watch these movies and read these books and I feel like I’ve always looked at them as a sort of fantasy. But people do fall in love with their soulmates and it’s happening every day. And we’re at that age, I don’t know at least I am, where I’m seriously starting to think that there’s something wrong with me for not knowing the slightest thing about love. Plus it doesn’t help that I am as awkward as they come and have the attractiveness of a lettuce leaf. And then I look at a picture like this again. And I think of what the Bible says in 1 Corinthians 13: 4-7: “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” Look at that first line again. LOVE IS PATIENT. And IT IS NOT SELF-SEEKING. I’m being impatient. And self-seeking. Maybe we only want to be in love for the sake of being in love, not because we want to meet our soulmates and get married. I certainly am not ready to get married. And I barely know who I am, I don’t know if I’m really ready to meet my soulmate. So I look at a picture like this, close my eyes, and say a prayer that one day I will have this. And I really hope I will. Not because I want to be in love for the sake of being in love. But I want to spend my life with someone who brings me closer to God and makes me a better person. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
