Love is beautiful, isn’t?
I remember the very first time my husband said he loved me. It was magical. Growing up I always dreamed of a beautiful marriage to a loving man.
In this article I have put together 30 bible verses for couples to draw inspiration from as they intentionally build their relationship.
When I was dating my husband, I didn’t pay much attention to what God really said about love, relationships and marriage. All I cared about is the over the moon feeling of someone loving me.
That was then.
Now I know that for our relationship to flourish, we have to have Christ at the center. We have to be very intentional about learning about God’s word that talks about love.
Through scripture, my desire is to learn to love & submit to my husband because, it doesn’t come easy!
If you are in a similar journey, or simply looking for bible inspiration on love and relationships, then this article is for you.
I hope these bible verses bless your heart.

to the room of the one who conceived me.”
Song of Solomon 8:6-7
“6 Place me like a seal over your heart,
like a seal on your arm;
for love is as strong as death,
its jealousy unyielding as the grave.
It burns like blazing fire,
like a mighty flame.

rivers cannot sweep it away.
If one were to give
all the wealth of one’s house for love,
it would be utterly scorned.”

But how can one keep warm alone?

two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”
