“Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”
‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:7‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Smitten

One meaning of smitten is an intense love for someone that exceeds all boundaries. In the most positive sense, it exemplifies the true meaning of loving with all your heart and all your soul and all your mind. It is absolutely unconditional, requiring nothing, but giving everything. As a hopeful romantic, I still believe it exists and should be the ultimate goal. But, it is not flesh and bones; it is spirit and commitment. For feelings alone will always fade, but true love endures.

RomCom

Last night I watched a romantic comedy, a romcom. Yes, I actually tend to like them because they leave you feeling pleasantly satisfied that all worked out well. As I quietly pondered why romcoms evoke such emotions, it occurred to me that life is meant to be similar. If we put our faith in God, He will make everything work out—that is the promise and the ultimate delight. What joy we can have through Him as we live with this hope. And just like the romcom, we will live happily ever after.
