I am a hopeless romantic; so for me The Royal Wedding was a complete joy to watch. In my opinion real love is the most beautiful and magnificent gift that we could ever experience. As I watched the fairytale love story and Royal Wedding, all I could do was think about God’s Sovereignty and how He truly orders our steps in all things, especially love.
If we were to lean on our own understanding regarding Prince Harry and Meghan Markle there is no way that a divorced, biracial, American actress could marry a prince and become royalty. This is something that simply happens in the movies but our thoughts are so limited when compared to God’s divinity. No one could have written this script for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s life other than the creator of Heaven and Earth. Only God alone knew that their paths would cross and His will be done; as real love prevails.
An unlikely pair would defy all opinions, traditions, and love in its most organic and authentic form would triumph. 1 Corinthians 13 states..“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”(1 Corinthians 13:4-7, 13)
Take a moment to reflect on past or current relationships. Do these relationships consist of envy? Were they easily angered? Did your partner or you record wrongs? Did your love story consistently rejoice in truth? Could you share honest thoughts and truthful feelings without being judged, condemned, or criticized? Was love patient or did you find yourself rushing the process instead of following your heart? Were you impatient because you thought you needed to be married by 30? Did societal pressures from peers and family take precedent? Did your gut tell you something wasn’t right but you impatiently ignored the signs instead of allowing God’s will and timing be done in your life? Because if this is the case you may find yourself being dishonorable to your own happiness. If you are acceptable of that kind of love let there be no judgement but if you want the kind of love look that Prince Harry gave his bride, if you want a love experience that defeats and defies all odds; If you want a fairy tale love story that makes no logical sense because real love simply doesn’t make sense and there is no better experience than falling in love with the partner God predestined for you.
If you are wondering why a relationship didn’t work, why he/she chose to be with another..don’t take it personal, don’t become overwhelmed, don’t be discouraged, don’t enforce your will, thoughts or allow limited understanding get in the way of God’s plan for your life. God has a purpose for you because His will shall be done. If a relationship consists of begging, forcing, manipulating, or deceiving a person to be with you…that’s not real love. Love is not forced; it’s liberating and free of fear because real love is the great unifier. Love is an instantaneous connection that you can’t explain-you simply know that you want to experience this reciprocated and magnetic feeling forever. Real love is not based on lust because it is defined by passion, desire, and sacrifice.
If you haven’t watched the Royal Wedding, I encourage you to do so and you’ll witness God’s love. An unlikely and what appeared impossible union only made possible by God. If you are waiting for real love; a love who will treat you the way you deserve in unspoken & spoken words, deeds, and actions-remember that your steps are ordered. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are beautiful examples of God’s divine will and love; and if He did it for them He is more than able to do it for you. Now I am not saying that you”ll marry a royal prince or princess, however anything is possible with God but what I am saying is that love is real because God is real. His plans are royal and unlimited in possibilities regarding love but it’s up to you to believe it; I surely do!
