Love, Honor, And Christian Romance Are Still Alive

Love, Honor, And Christian Romance Are Still Alive

Friends with benefits, pre-nuptial agreements, baby’s daddy/mamma drama, gold diggers, swingers, and such the like are norms in our society.

I often wonder…. Where is the love, the honor, and Christian romance in our society today

The relationships named above have been around throughout the ages, but they seem more acceptable today.   It is as if we have given up on the “Songs of Solomon” kind of love.  Many believe that true Christian romance is played out.

Chivalry is dead and it’s every man or woman for themselves.  If I can’t get my knight in shining armor then I will settle for sexual gratification and a few side benefits.   Wham, bam, thank you ma’am; don’t text me…I’ll text you.

Guitar RomanceLast night, I witnessed a shocking romantic gesture.  I was on a romantic date at a beautiful, elegant restaurant.  He and I were talking about hopes for our future and the goodness of God, and then I heard this sweet music.

A few tables down, a young man pulled out his guitar and began serenading his lady right there at the table!  Her response as well as the response of all in the restaurant was a look of complete amazement.

Her eyes sparkled like stars as he sang and played his guitar.  

Their love gave me goosebumps.

You could tell he was a little nervous but he didn’t care.  It was as if the rest of us in the restaurant did not exist.  He didn’t care about looking cool in front of his friends who were also sitting at their table.  He put his all on the line…for her.

I had once given up hope that this kind of love existed.  But there it was before me.

Sometimes men and women open their hearts to substandard love because they feel like it’s the only kind of love they can get.  Real love seems too hard to find.  Is it really better to compromise love, honor, and romance just so we won’t be alone?

I sometimes wondered… would my knight in shining armor gallop on by while I was bent over trying to polish up a dull armored man?

Our soul mates could come at any time.

You remember him don’t you?

The one you dreamed about when you were just a girl…the one you prayed and asked God for.

He’d pick you up for dinner.  I mean actually get out of the car to receive you, not just blow the horn.  He would compliment your beauty and open doors for you…at least on the first 50 dates. (Smile)

He’d ask about your day, let you choose what to listen to on the radio, and be careful that you were warm enough or cool enough.  He is strong in heart, almost heroic.  He will do whatever it takes to make you laugh and see you smile.  And from time to time, he will surprise you with flowers, chocolate, or maybe a serenade. (Wink)

And as your love grows strong and he prepares to ask you to be his wife, he will have a plan in place; a plan that will guide your futures as you unite as one.

Remember that guy?

Somebody is out there reading this and saying this guy only wants ONE THING if he exists at all.

I say don’t give up on him.  Don’t give up on Christian romance. And do not give up on God’s ability to create such a man just for you.

He may be taking awhile to get to you, but he’s coming.  He may not be from your neighborhood.  He may not be from your country.  So don’t think you got it all figured out.  God is in control.  Yes my wait has seemed long, but it does not mean yours has to be.

True unconditional love is real.  Take a stand for love, honor, and Christian romance.

Don’t settle for less.

  1. Great post. Love, romance & chivalry aren’t dead…they’re just dormant at the moment & they need to be revived in our society. You know?

  2. No problem. I will make sure I come back and check out more of your post. Also, if you could swing by and check out my blog. Thanks!

  3. The good guys are out there. I dreamed of having a man with good character who would make a good father and husband. I was lucky enough to find him. He’s not perfect (neither am I) but he cares for me when I’m sick, he is the best father anyone could ask for and he’s an awesome cook! Most importantly, we forgive each other when we’re human.

    1. Yes the good guys are out there. I’m so glad you have been blessed with such a wonderful marriage! Your story keeps hope alive for many. Thank you for the comment!

  4. Nice post! I married one of the good guys almost 30 years ago and have since had the blessing of raising two young men who seek to be Godly in their relationships. They have occasionally commented that most young women don’t want that kind of relationship and “nice guys finish last.” I am gratified to know you are still out there. God knows our needs, it’s just hard to wait sometimes.

    1. Yes, there are many true Christian singles out there. May God strengthen as singles strive to find one another. Thanks so much for reading! I have a feeling sharing your story will help many others. God bless!

  5. oh how sweet 🙂
    I get excited when I hear about this pure, true love. I’m not a romantic fanatic, but as a seventeen year old young lady, it’s part of my God-given self, that I find this attractive. When a man cares not about the surroundings, only for his lady; unashamed to prove his love to her.

  6. Is it possible to turn a man into the above. My bf does only about 15% of that. It’s not that he is against it. He just wasn’t raised to do those things. He never had male influences to teach him. And I was never taught how a man should treat me. I’m 26 now with 2 kids, so I’ve grown up a lot. I desire for my man to do those things. Is it still possible and what do I do?!

    1. I think it’s possible for men to learn the art of romance. You’re correct in that many men are not taught much about chivalry these days. But I have found that communication is the key. When you are courting and entering into marriage we often expect our men to read our minds and automatically know what we want. This will happen on occasion but we can’t be too crushed if it doesn’t. In my experience I have found that sometimes you may need to lovingly communicate what you want and what you like. In my opinion it doesn’t take the romance out of it. When my hubby follows through on something I mentioned that I would like, it makes me feel even more special…and I strive to do the same for him.
