In order to ignite a loving desire we must first render an inner passion. We must first make a conscious decision to communicate, supply, and deliver that which we desire unto others. To generate vibrations of love in our relationships first requires the initiation of attention with congruent affection. The future of your relationship rides on your ability to invest your most valued possession into a partnering alignment. Your most valued attribute is exhibited by your personal self investment, by the giving of your attention that is accompanied with your loving affection.
Your relational partner needs your essence, which can only be obtained by your contributing presence. A partner is someone who works with others towards a common goal. How can you be partners in life, in love, in marriage, if your do not contribute yourselves to one another? Your presence can not be substituted for, nothing else can replace your place of significance within a relationship. To achieve cohesive unity you must together practice togetherness. The adhering component of any relationship is the convergence of love in parallel efforts.
How much does it cost to pay attention? How do you rain check affection? We are often driven by lesser objectives in life, such as greater wealth, materialism, and the pursuit of success via personal accomplishments. We aggressively pursue things that will one day be meaningless, it’s like chasing the wind. We are taught to invest in financial means, but seldom do we invest by relational needs. Then the day comes when the quest for recognition, achievement, and the things of this world leave us with a vacancy. The day when we look at our homes, and all the things we have acquired only to realize that our house is empty without love. Today relationships starve due to lack of personal relational investment. By no means does this say that you should quit your jobs, however, it may be necessary to analyze the aspects of your life in which your time is invested. Define your relational increase possibilities by way of prioritization.
Your relational bonds will deepen to a level of unification when you, as partners, together give your attention and affection to each other with loving intent. Simply put, love is like a hug, it embraces everything. The most effective pursuit of your life is to demonstrate love by your actions. Take a moment right now and look at your watch, how much time do you have? It’s your time and it’s your choice, what are you going to do with your presence?

Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.
