When Love Fails

on Friday, 12 January 2018. Posted in Blog

Hi we are back, it's a new year and we believe that the best place to start is from the place of love.

Today we are discussing when love fails. Most of you will be arguing right now that real love doesn't fail, I beg to differ a bit. Love as defined by Merriam Webster dictionary -a feeling of strong or constant affection for a person.

-This kind of love quits when things around are no more in it's favour.

-This kind of love counts all the good it has done and judges it with the other party. Of course the other party will always come up short!

Truth be told nobody can love us as perfectly as we want to be loved. We can say that 'Love fails' when our expectations are not met.

If our spouse, parents or loved ones fail to meet our expectations, we usually say that they don't love us anymore or that love has failed.

But today I would like us to look at it differently by identifying the qualities of love by using the greatest standard of love we know:

-For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life(John 3:16)-

1) Love is a giving word not a receiving word.

2) Love meets the need of the one he loves with humility.

3) Love forgives

4) Love has rules/boundaries.

I remember few years ago when I was praying and counting all I had done for my husband; I literally heard -"stop counting all that you do for your husband, that's not love".

Today I want you to make a New Year resolution to love God's way:

-by not giving up on one another because of our imperfections (aren't we all imperfect?).

-stop taking love for granted because love is a priceless gift very few people enjoy.

TODAY'S TASK:

Count your blessings- by listing at least one need your spouse, parents or loved one met in the last 3months.

Then send a thank text/note appreciating them.

2017 in Review

As we close the year this Wednesday 20th December 2017, we would like to share the highlights of the year and say a big thank you for being a part of it.

The year began on a strong note with the executive board outlining programs for the year and strategies to achieve them.

As usual our ever eager women kicked off the pace for the year with Woman And Marriage forum. The weekly/monthly program ran throughout the year – physically and online. The forum has increased in number from 108 to over 250 members. Click to read more https://facebook.com/events/1274244229330154?_e_pi_=7%2CPAGE_ID10%2C9609028773

We introduced a new program for couples (Couples Boot Camp). It held once in January and gave couples the privilege to communicate rightly, and build a common vision in achieving their goal as a family. It was fun while learning new things about marriage.

KMA F.I.D.E.L.I.T.Y Walk was infused with Lagos branch Couples Hangout. The program focused on highlighting the importance of habits in building marriages and ultimately the society. FIDELITY Walk had a day awareness walk in February and continued trending online through its Facebook page.
