True love perseveres through challenging and difficult times. When you deeply love another person, you do your best to work on issues that may arise in your relationships.


Perseverance takes patience and kindness even when you feel the other person does not deserve it.


When you persevere in love, it means that you push through no matter how hard it gets, no matter how long it takes, true love never gives up.


Whenever we don't give up on love, its the ultimate sign of commitment and sacrifice, we can demonstrate to our loved ones.


Persevering love has faith that things will work out in the end. This is the kind of love that the Bible speaks of, and it is the kind of love that will bring us the most happiness and fulfillment in our relationships. So remember, even in the most difficult times, never give up on love.


Love perseveres even in the darkest of times. In the Bible, we see examples of people facing hardship, tribulation and difficulties that test their love. From Joseph's reconciliation with his brothers to Ruth and Naomi's deep devotion to each other, to David and Jonathan's incredible friendship, there are so many stories that demonstrate how even when it may seem impossible, love will persevere.


The Bible shows us how God never gives up on us despite our sins. God has promised in His Word that He will always be with us.


The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Deuteronomy 31:8

God's promises have stood the test of time and many generations from Biblical times until now. God showed that He is commited to us as a human race by sending His only begotten son Jesus to die for us.


For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16

God's love will never give up on us. Therefore we ought not to give up on our relationships eith others even if it's from a distance.


Love never gives up! Love perseveres!


Much love

Sylvia
