When Did I Fall In Love?

When did you fall in love? How did you fall in love? In my life, I have heard this questions posed all around me. Lately out of curiosity I have even been asking these questions to myself on occasion. After deeper thought about this question, I have reached an understanding. There is no single moment in time or specific activity in which I can pinpoint as “the moment I fell in love.” In society we often view love as an emotion that can come and go at the snap of our fingers, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Love is a choice and every day I choose love. When I think about my girlfriend and the love I have for her I think of an unending amount of moments and memories that will last a lifetime. The love for her that blossomed in my heart was nothing less than a culmination of treasured moments, conversations, laughs, tears, butterflies, and vulnerability. I fell in love because of the months of prayer I have dedicated to our relationship. I fell in love because of waking up every single morning thanking God for the treasure he has given me. While there is not a single moment in which I fell in love, there most definitely is a magnitude of singular moments that have brought me to the place in which I am today. If you are reading this I challenge you to think about love a little bit differently from this day forward. First and foremost give it to God. Next, wake up everyday right from the start choosing love in your heart. If you do this I believe that every moment from the trials to the triumphs will develop in you a love that can’t be broken. After all, what God has brought together, let no man separate. I want to thank my wonderful, patient, and kind girlfriend for choosing love with me. Aside from choosing Jesus as my Lord and Savior, YOU are the single most wonderful choice I have ever made. Let us go fourth remembering that true love doesn’t happen in a moment but it blossoms over a lifetime.
