Something about that person’s soul connects with us.
When we acknowledge this, and keep Christ at the center of a dating relationship, or any relationship, we too will be thanking God for this beautiful gift of love He has given us.So is this what makes two people “boyfriend/girlfriend?” I think it takes a little more than just going out somewhere, right?I felt this happen to me, and I am convinced it is a reaction of a person’s soul.As I heard a dear priest once say to me, it’s “two hearts speaking to one another.”Think about this: God is love (1 John 4:8), and therefore whatever true love we feel has been created by God.Those butterflies in our stomach are our blood rushing and hormones getting amped up. Is it just because we find the person physically attractive? The truth is that romantic love is just as much a spiritual response as it is a physical one.
When we find that we are “in love with” someone, part of it is because our soul wants to have a special relationship with that person.
It gives us a right to enjoy life from a new perspective.
However, like any relationship, there are ways that we can take advantage of and even abuse these rights.
Is there any word in the English language that is thrown around as much as “love”? We hear people using this word often in public, when saying something like “Oh, I love that!
” or, “I’m in love.” Certainly, everyone seems to know what love is, and I’m pretty sure everyone has an idea of what it means to be “in love.” But truly, despite how often we hear this word, do we really know what love is?
God has created each of us in His image, which means each of us is special.
