From Cincinnati to Pittsburgh

Currently, I’m in Cincinnati and Justin is in Pittsburgh – which means we’re apart… :(
This is one of those blog posts where I’m going to tell you how much longing makes the heart grow fonder, and share with you a verse that really comforts me when Justin and I are apart. So, for anyone that may be going through a long distance relationship at the moment, maybe read this blog post a little further.
The verse is from 1 Corinthians 13:7. I’ve included two different versions.

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!
