Why I Love Like This

Wonder why I’m vocal about My Love Story?

She loves it

When it comes to the love notes, Abisola is the first to read them. Sometimes, she even sees them weeks before I post them publicly. I see how it lights up a fire in her eyes. And that is exactly what I want to see every day. This is exactly why I love her like this.

I love it too

Giving myself a frequent challenge to always articulate my thoughts and put it plainly is a fulfillment for me. Each time I pen down something, I feel so much joy. I feel like I just gave birth to a sweet adorable little girl. I feel like a part of me is being born to live forever.

I love being an inspiration

I have a plan for all this. I want to be that spark that sets you on fire to love again. I want to be the reason you hang on a little longer. I want to be the reason you work things out. I want to be the reason you make a decision that no one is ever going to love your partner more than you. I want to be the person who illustrates what it means for Christ to sing over you. I do this to teach a lesson that: we can love our mothers with everything in the world, but we love our wives with a little bit more. I want to be the one to teach you that we can be totally sold out to God without being less appealing in relationships.

We can be totally sold out to God without being less appealing in relationships

We can go all out

Why do we ever hold anything back? Only the fear that a relationship will not last holds us back from giving our best. When we still think we have options, we save our very best for the last. Now that I’ve found my last bus-stop, there is no reason I should not take a deep dive. Now that I have found my permanent site, there is no reason I should not build a gold-plated cathedral.

Jesus will do even more

One of the most amazing things about marriage to me is the fact that it is God’s way of teaching and showing us the affection, connection and communion that Christ wants with the church. Seeing how He hung on the cross, poured out his blood to the last drop, how that in pains he declared blessings, then there is nothing that I can do right now that is big enough. I strongly believe we cannot truly grasp the extent of God’s love if we do not create that atmosphere in our homes.

We can be loving and still be saints

One last message I am so desperate to pass across is this: we can remain saints as we love without bounds. I am here to debunk all of the mindset that we cannot have it great both ways. As a matter of fact, we should. We can love in such a way that the world is envious. We can make our romance an inspiration for those who do not even agree with our faith. We can sing beautiful songs of adoration to the one we’re married too. We can draw inspiration from the heavenlies.

Final note

Do not reserve your love for a better time. Until you give all you can, you don’t know how much you can really give. Our minds, if not numb, are always seeking out ways to beat our own records.
