Since we have entered into the month of the calendar year where many couples and lovers of the world celebrate the one they love, it is appropriate to address the issue of passion. Passion may frequently be used in the place of love, but you can definitely not have one without the other. Many pastors’ wives find themselves living with a man who seems to have so much passion for what he does and not enough for the one he professes to love. Passion can be defined as a strong feeling or desire for anything. So when a person truly has passion for someone, they not only love them but they strongly desire to be with them. It becomes so strong that when they are not in their presence, they desire to be with them. So is there passion in your marriage or relationship or is it simply love? You should have both, but many of us go on without ever experiencing passion.
Ladies as you prepare yourself for the special day in this month to be showered with candy, flowers, jewelry, etc., take the time to think about what your relationship is all about. You need passion in your relationship, because it keeps things fresh and exciting. If it is there, you never have to worry about getting bored with your mate. If your relationship possesses passion, moments together can be spontaneous, unexpected and very exciting! It will not be a struggle for you to return the same type of passion to your husband because when he is passionate towards you, the response usually will be reciprocal. If this is the case, why do we see the passion that started out in our marriage or relationship fade away like a vapor? It can fade because we lose our focus on what we should be passionate about. Woman of God, if the passion has left, you can do something about it. Start by showing the passion that your husband can’t seem to find or express. Who says that the passion can’t start with you?! Use the power and gifts that God has equipped you with in getting the attention of your spouse, along with the power of prayer. Make this Valentine’s Day one to remember by reminding yourself and your spouse that passion originated at Calvary and this act of selflessness has allowed you to experience the greatest gift of all between two hearts, an unconditional and passionate love.
