During our separation I often reminded myself of 1 Cor 13:8 (NIV) – Love never fails. Over and over I asked myself what is the loving thing to do in this situation today with Sharon – whether we were together, or in a meeting with someone else, or not even talking at all. I strove to do what I believed was the loving thing at the time. I did not always succeed, but I had confidence in God’s Word that if I consistently loved her, good would come.
With Jesus’ help good did come. His love for both of us never failed and His love expressed through each other, to each other, even though we were imperfect, never failed. It is amazing what power one tiny piece of God’s Word can have in our lives when we seek to believe it and apply it to our lives.
