Don’t Let the Sun Set on Love

Ephesians 4:2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.

Sunset 1

Don’t let the sun go down on your chance at love. Not with family, not with friends and not with your spouse you promised to love, honor and cherish.

It’s never too late to evaluate where things went wrong. On the surface it may be easy to place the blame with someone else, but when we look deeper – when we are really honest with ourselves – we find that we also have to take our own responsibility for where things went wrong. We have our own part in a relationship that is failing. 

Relationships take two people to put back together. They require hard work from two imperfect people. They need forgiveness. Sometimes often. Thank heavens our Father freely forgives us so that we can forgive others.

We are only here for a short time. Do you really want to spend it fighting with the ones you love? No one knows what tomorrow will bring. Don’t let the sun go down on the time you have for love. Call your parents; tell your children how proud you are of them; don’t spend another minute arguing with your spouse. Remember the reasons why you fell in love with them. Hold on to those memories; let the bad go. They rob you of valuable time you will never get back.

  1. Hi Kim! No, I don’t want to spend my precious time fighting, that’s a great point. I know that fighting comes from a blast of emotion that I just don’t control very well. Sigh. My husband is so good at keeping peace and seeing to the heart of the matter. This Irish gal really appreciates his loving approach to my anger.

    God has truly blessed me.
    Monday blessings!

    • Hello there, friend. Emotions can certainly get the best of us, can’t they? We sometimes think we see others so clearly and know or understand what their problem is, or maybe why things went so wrong. In reality experience tells us (especially as we get older and hopefully wiser) only God knows why people do certain things. We are not to judge people for the things they have done, we are to love them where they are and this will help them to become who God wants them to be. Blessings, Ceil

  2. Whenever someone comes to me and talks about a marriage breaking up (theirs or someone else) or I hear someone talk, I always tell them “it takes two to tango.” No relationship which stays together nor one which falls apart is the result of one person. Relationships take time. I totally agree and it takes the efforts of both.

    • Bill, I 100% agree. It can be difficult for some who have been hurt to understand this and take their part of the responsibility so the relationship can begin to heal. Not just in marriages, but in any type of relationship. There has to be a mutual understanding of the breakdown that occurred because of the parties, there needs to be forgiveness and there needs to be an effort to rebuild the relationship without revisiting the past and bringing up old wounds or fear of mistrust or lack of forgiveness. I whole-heartedly agree that most relationships can be resolved when people are willing to move forward in this healthy way. God is for healthy, loving relationships and families.
