NIV: [Love] always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
NLT: Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
I think this line is really powerful, especially the last part (and take a close look at the NLT version) – Love endures through every circumstance. Currently, me and Justin’s “circumstance” is the distance between us, but we’ll endure through it. It is just definitely not my favorite time, but I do believe that the longing makes my heart grow fonder. That being said, I don’t know how much fonder my heart can grow because I’m already so soo fond of him!
I shared that verse with Justin yesterday, and then needed a little extra encouragement for myself tonight, so I’m repeating it for all to read – including myself!
