God Speaks Your Love Language: Chapter 1

God Speaks Your Love Language: Chapter 1

Published by MoodyPublishers
Wherever you experience the love of God, it is always personal, intimate, and life changing. The key to learning and choosing love is tapping into divine love. The craving for love is our deepest emotional need, and we feel it and are drawn to others when they speak love in our language. This same principle applies to the most important relationship--our relationship with God.

Do you realize that the God of the universe speaks your love language, and your expressions of love for Him are shaped by your love language? Learn how you can give and receive God's love through the five love languages: words of affirmation, quality time, gifts, acts of service, and physical touch.

Gary writes, "As we respond to the love of God and begin to identify the variety of languages He uses to speak to us, we soon learn to speak those languages ourselves. Whatever love language you prefer, may you find ever deeper satisfaction in using that language in your relationship with God and with other people."

 After more than
orty years o counseling couples and amilies,I am convinced that there are ve basic languages o love. There may bemany “dialects,” but only ve languages.Each person has a primary love language, which means that one o the ve love languages speaks more deeply than the other our on anemotional level. When someone speaks my primary love language, I amdrawn to that person because he or she is meeting my basic need to eelloved. When a person does not speak my primary language, I will won-der whether he or she really loves me because emotionally I do not con-nect as strongly with that person.The problem in many human relationships is that one person speaksa particular love language and wonders why another person with a di-erent love language does not understand. That’s like my speaking Eng-lish to someone who understands only German and wondering why he

Transforming marriages
Thousands o married couples echo the story o Scott and Anna.They had driven our hundred miles to Atlanta to attend a “Love Lan-guages” seminar. Ater the Friday night session, Scott said, “Dr. Chap-man, we want to thank you or turning our marriage around.”I was conused because they had just started the weekend seminar.Sensing the question in my eyes, Scott continued. “God used
the love language concept 
to transorm our marriage. We have been married orthirty-three years, but the last twenty years have been utterly miser-able. We have lived in the same house and been outwardly riendly  with each other, but that’s as ar as it went. We had not taken a vacationtogether in twenty years. We simply didn’t like being with each other.“Some time ago, I shared my misery with a riend. He gave me yourbook and told me to read it. I went home and nished reading it atabout two o’clock in the morning. I shook my head and asked mysel,
How could I have missed this? 
“I realized immediately that my wie and I had not spoken eachother’s love language or years. I gave the book to her and asked her toread it. Three or our days later, we sat down and discussed it. We bothagreed that i we had read the book twenty years earlier, our lives wouldhave been dierent. I asked her i she thought it would make any di-erence i we tried now. She replied, ‘We dont have anything to lose.’” At this point, Anna broke into the conversation and said, “I didn’thave any idea that things would actually change between us, but I wascertainly willing to give it a try. I still can’t believe what has happened. We enjoy being with each other now. Two months ago, we actually
