Are you sure you love him?

by Nicole Howard
(Texas)

love is patient
okay so you love him, but do you get mad when he takes forever to text you back or do you get mad when he won't let you come over as soon as you want to?
love is kind
okay so you love him, but are you always kind to him. or it is okay to talk bad about him, cause he is just a jerk sometimes?
it does not boast
okay so you love him, but do you boast about how great he is? do you boast about your relationship?
it is not self seeking
okay so you love him, but you always want to hang out with him or talk to him because you are bored and he should talk to you anyways?
it keeps no records of wrong
okay so you love him, and he apologized for being rude but you are still mad because well he was just a jerk?
love does not delight in evil but rejoices in the truth
okay so you love him, but you can't help but lie sometimes because well you need attention, and maybe it will make your relationship better if you just tell a little white lie.
it always protects
okay so you love him, but he is a big boy he can handle himself, i'll just let him do whatever and maybe get mad so he knows i don't want him to do that?
it always trusts
okay so you love him, but you can't help not trusting him completely because well he has hurt you before?
it always perserves
okay so you love him, but things are just too bad, and even though i "love" him, i shouldn't have to try to work things out, because its his problem, i didn't do anything wrong.


love is patient
you love him, you don't care if he doesn't call you back exactly when you planned because you know he loves you.
love is kind
you love him, and you go out of your way to be kind because even though he make mistakes, he deserves kindness.
it does not boast
you love him, and you know you have a great relationship but you don't have to tell people because you know it speaks for itself.
it is not self seeking
you love him, not only because he loves you, but because you want to build him up and you want to bring out the best in him.
it keeps no records of wrongs
you love him, and even though he is a jerk sometimes, you always forgive and forget because you know everybody makes mistakes, and his love for you overweighs any rudeness, or any mistake.
love does not delight in evil, but rejoice in the truth
you love him, and show him where he needs to work, but rejoices with the right choice he makes.
it always protects
you love him, and you make sure he is always safe, because you know he would do the same for you.
it always trusts
you love him, and even though it might hurt to let him do something without you, you trust him to make the right decision.
it always hopes
you love him, and even though he made a mistake or hurt you, you remember he loves you and you hope and pray for the best for him.
it always preserves
you love him, and even though times are tough and its hard to see the light, you continue to pray for him and look toward the goal set before you.
