The Way to Deeper Love

by What Matters Most- A Mother's Devotional

You prayed for a deeper love.

You expected time alone.
You received time apart.

You expected long conversations.
You received silence.

You expected tenderness.
You received harshness.

You expected a heart turning to yours.
You received a heart turning away.

You expected praise.
You received criticism.

You expected laughter.
You received tears.

You expected apologies.
You received blame.

You expected things to get easier.
You received harder days.

You prayed for a deeper love.
You received GRACE.

To endure.

To stand.

To wait.

To preservere.

To forgive.

To deeply love.
