religion in romance

Posted in pin the tail on the love by enisea on 20/12/2011

We’ve decided to become religiously romantic…

and this just means that at the end of every day together, we’ll pray together and every week we’ve decided to commit to memorising some small scripture.  And as petty or weak as you might think this is, it is the most nervous thing to begin and the most heartwarming activity I think we’ve ever done together.  To have a love who shares the same loves – who understands one’s passion, hopes, faith  and weakness – is such a relief.  It makes this relationship so much more real.

Praying does wonders for the reassurance of the little uncertainty that remains within a person, whilst sealing natural encounters with supernatural promises and addressing God with appreciation and hopeful request.  I suppose coming back to Him at the end of every day or night spent with the boyfriend reiterates the perspective that there are greater things to come, meanwhile frequently reminding self that this new love is not the first love – God is.

It’s beautiful sharing faith so closely with another – it’s the combination of the two greatest romances in my life. He who loved me before I knew love so unconditional, and he who I am learning to love and be loved by.

I really have to find something else to write about don’t I? I’ve lately been under an obvious influence… willingly.
