Steadfast Love = Security

The number one thing in a marital relationship is to be secure in each others love! Contained in the marriage vows are commitments that each make to the other. They go like this, “I take you as my partner in life and my one true love. I will cherish our union and love you more each day than I did the day before. I will trust and respect you, laugh with you and cry with you, loving you faithfully through good times and bad, regardless of the obsticles we may face together. I give you my hand, my heart, and my love, from this day forward for as long as we both shall live.”

You commit to the others well-being. Security is knowing that your love is a steadfast love. The characteristic of a steadfast love is that it is never failing. Words that describe a steadfast love is compassion and faithfulness. The opposite of a steadfast love is to be fickle and change as your feelings change or your mood changes. You know when your love is a steadfast love when you and your spouse are committed to act in each others best interest. A steadfast love sees the good and refuses to dwell on each others faults. A steadfast love helps, builds up and encourages. A steadfast love is an attitude of choice. When there is steadfast love there is security.
