Love is Courtship

Why did I start Love is Courtship? Honestly, because I have been heartbroken and I see so many heartbroken people in society, young people are searching for love the wrong way and people are not taught how to treat each other even in marriage. I believe that true God centred courtship is 100% guaranteed to last and that’s why I started Love is Courtship.

The divorce rate is rapidly growing and the main reason I believe it is so is because people are not taught to treat the opposite sex as another person’s wife or husband until they meet the person God has pre-destined for them. Many are not taught to fight for purity and self-control. Most young people are into dating, others believe in arranged marriages and many don’t even want to get married due to past relationships and fear but keep all the benefits of marriage. I believe you can marry the wrong person. Yes, anyone can, even a christian can marry the wrong person. If you marry the wrong person God can restore and can still make your marriage successful…but do you want to marry the wrong person? No, no-one does, so learn what real courtship is all about.

Courtship is not just treating each other nice for awhile, having sex after marriage and then that’s it…no it is so much more. Courtship is a never ending cycle that continues through your life and onto your children and their children…it is generational. Courtship starts with your heart and asking God who am I meant to be with for the rest of your life? Courtship is about letting go of control and trusting God that He will help any man find and pursue the right woman, and women will wait until the man finds them.

That sounds like a fairytale…well why are there so many fairytales around and why are stories of the Prince rescuing a Princess so popular? Why do we love super hero’s and villian stories? Because God designed it that way and He is writing your story if you will trust Him and not take control yourself….listen to your heart for God whispers your name.

4 Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily.

5 It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong].

6 It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail.

7 Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening].

8 Love never fails [never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end]. As for prophecy (the gift of interpreting the divine will and purpose), it will be fulfilled and pass away; as for tongues, they will be destroyed and cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away [it will lose its value and be superseded by truth].

Love Never Fails – Brandon Heath

Lyrics to Love Never Fails :

Love is not proud
Love does not boast
Love after all
Matters the most

Love does not run
Love does not hide
Love does not keep
Locked inside

Love is the river that flows through
Love never fails you

Love will sustain
Love will provide
Love will not cease
At the end of time

Love will protect
Love always hopes
Love still believes
When you don’t

Love is the arms that are holding you
Love never fails you

When my heart won’t make a sound
When I can’t turn back around
When the sky is falling down
Nothing is greater than this
Greater than this

Love is right here
Love is alive
Love is the way
The truth the life

Love is the river than flows through
Love is the arms that are holding you
Love is the place you will fly to
Love never fails you
