Where does one start to find peace and happiness mutually coupled with sincere love in our world today? Times are changing ever so much. And, people all too quickly learn that they can individually demand self-satisfaction and get it, by putting down one's foot firmly on the ground and refusing to settle for anything less than the picture, image, or pre-supposed character we have in mind for our mates.
With that, love life often becomes a hard box in which to try and fit oneself. But before a devoted Christian love relationship can ever take place, surely there must be a basic friendship.
Online resources for finding intimate Christian friendships are few. And, this is doubly true when you sincerely seek a quality companion via the various offers that the Internet presents.
Also, there is an additional challenge that potential Christian lovers will face... the psychology of love is changing. Having and maintaining a balanced relationship can now be a complicated matter for you, as well. With the need to communicate especially with one's spouse or intended future intended companion, where do you go for help when he or she is not able to speak resolutely?
You see, modern psychology too easily fails to understand the nuances of newly devoted Christian love relationship behavior. The causes for this are deep-rooted and perplexing, to say the least. Actually, some believe that many Christian counselors and psychology practitioners themselves still struggle with the changing nature of a modern Christian love. Thus, these experts may have a difficult time helping others to solve marital or partnership problems, particularly when addressing their own clients.
You probably already know that giving the wrong advice to someone about how to handle the complex and sensitive issues of love can only make the original issue worse.
Further, it is important to be able to see, hear, and feel the inner emotional desires of others when they come to you for advice or guidance. In devoted Christian love relationships, demands are different now, plus the expected or traditional role that each person plays in a partnership requires attention and discussion... followed by mutual agreement on courses of action to take, plus the general expectations we might hope to receive.
On the other hand, there always exists a ray of hope in these regards - if and when you are willing to more deeply examine and explore the words contained in biblical passages, for example. And, when you are fortunate enough to find a loving Christian companion, or even to speak to a caring Christian professional about what you are seeking... your possibilities become more plausible.
However, regarding your very own devoted Christian love relationship, do you want to be absolutely sure your feet lie on solid ground? If so, then use God's number one recommendation - that is, to love thy neighbor as thyself.
Another loving law that helps guide our relationship decisions is, "I am the lord thy god; thou shall not put strange things before me." As you already know, this statement originally pertained to the making and idolization of material images. Yet, in one's quest for romance within present-day society, there is often a similar idolization placed upon our new mates. When we first meet them, surely they appear to be walking on water:-)
Nonetheless, it takes very little time to easily see that we and our mates are fully human and subject to many common errors.
To make love the grand celebration it has the ability to be, as it pertains to each devoted Christian love relationship, a gentle heart is needed. Yet, this heart must also carry wisdom along with it. This is true because wise lovers and friends can most successfully transform into long-term devoted love relationship participants.
Most likely, time can never change the fact that a much deeper overall understanding of ourselves and of our mates is the key to everlasting bliss.
