Love isn't as complicated as most make it out to be. What is love? I can tell you...well it's in the Bible. Whether you believe that the Bible is the God-inspired truth or not, I'm sure you would agree with its definition:
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. (1 Corinthians 13:4-7 (New International Version))
How could you not agree with that? I think this text covers all of the bases. It applies to all relationships, but I'll be applying this passage to those of the romantic variety. I sat back and really considered if I truly loved anyone that I though I've loved. I did a lot of remembering and was brutally honest with myself. I came to the conclusion that I probably didn't. I think I was confused with either the newness of the relationship or just became comfortable with the person. I truly hope that this doesn't make me seem like a jerk for admitting this, but only two people came to mind. (sad huh?) Throughout high school and college, there have been guys that I've dated, "went steady" with, and then there are the select two that I have actually had serious relationships.
God already knows who I am going to marry, if I should get married at all. I am not worried about that.
Hopefully God grants me a guy with at least a few of these traits. I'll be happy!!! Whomever God gives me, I'm sure I'll be happy.
- My name is Sathiyyah, but ppl call me Tai or Tiyyah. I like to think of myself as a fine young lady and a scholar. I'm almost a 23 year-old SENIOR (woo hoo). I am a Communications Media major with a concentration in Public Relations. I would like to one day become an ad copywriter with a gig making super bowl commercials. I am originally from Harlem, but I now stay in Maryland. I can be a bit shy sometimes, but lately ppl think I'm outgoing. I love meeting new ppl and learning about different places and cultures. I'm a girl who is into learning....big time. I enjoy chilling with friends, dining out, amusement parks, museums, musicals, music as a whole (motown is the best!) I love the Temptations and The Jackson 5. I am open to meeting new ppl. I dislike irresponsible adults, disorganization in the workplace, conformity, drugs and anything that does not edify the name of Christ. I am in no way perfect, just flesh and blood trying to be for Christ.
