How to Have a God Centered Dating Relationship: 12 Steps
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails… The secret to understand this bible verse is to apply it to yourself first, and not to your loved ones first. Your love for them and for yourself must be kind, patient, without envy, not boasting, not proud, not delighting in evil, your love does not get angered and oh, it keeps no record of wrong, always perseveres, always protects, and oh, here is one very difficult again, your love for your loved one always trusts.
Some will say, I give up, I stick to my soap opera definition of love. One ounce of conflict and the relationship is over… Next! God is always in control. We make a mistake, and sometimes the beautiful things and love feelings we had end up leaving us. Money can be lost, trust can be lost, and that feeling of attachment to your loved one can be lost after a horrible mistake.
I said, the feeling of attachment can be lost, but true love will never be lost, if there was true love in the first place. God can and will restore you if you ask him, but we reap what we sow, all the time. This is a biblical truth that we tend to forget.
Also remember, Jesus said that a seed that goes down to the ground, dies. Yes, you are the seed, and sowing your seed means actually dying to your own pretty dreams of happiness and satisfaction.
For wives, this means submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For a husband is the head of his wife as Christ is the head of the church.
He is the Savior of his body, the church. As the church submits to Christ, so you wives should submit to your husbands in everything. For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her. Only then will they even choose to submit to each other.
After both having a reverence for Christ and a submissive heart towards one another, then a woman should submit to her husband as head of the home.

This does not mean that he is the boss of her, but that he is the spiritual head of the home, and with this comes a great responsibility and accountability for him from God. This means for you to support him in his decisions for the family, to trust that he is seeking God, and to carry yourself with a soft heart towards him. Men, for your wife to feel safe submitting to you in this manner you need to be like Christ in the fact that He loved the Church so much he was willing to die for her.
If you love your wife in this manner she will know that you will never abuse your authority in the household. Ladies, there is great strength that will come to you from God in your obedience before the Lord in this matter. Also, by carrying yourself in this manner you will be able to win over your husbands, who do not know or serve the Lord. For the Bible says in 1 Peter that by your pure and reverent life your husband will be won over; and your Godly life will speak to him without words.
The Bible recounts that the great women of faith carried themselves in this manner. Only when you are submitted to God in this manner, will your prayers of faith have effect.
For men the Bible says you are to give honor to your wives, and to treat her as an equal partner. If you do not your prayers will be hindered. In the end if we are submitted to God in our hearts He will lead us through the difficulties of life, help us to overcome the pitfalls that can come with marriage, and teach us how we can be a better husband or wife. We encourage you to seek the Lord this day concerning your life and marriage.
You can start by praying this prayer aloud to Him; Lord forgive me of my sins, and wash me clean with Your blood. I pray for my spouse and I ask that You would forgive me for wronging them in any way and I forgive them for wronging me. Lead me unto righteousness and reveal to me Your path for my life, and for our marriage. I submit my life to Jesus Christ, and choose to serve You and obey You this day.
