Does a long-distance relationship work? One of the most challenging love stories is trying to love someone miles away from you. 

Some people do not have a choice but to stay away from their loved ones to sustain their lifestyle. Distance does not just test their love but their trust and patience with each other and their situation. 

How can people strengthen their relationships when they are miles apart? 

Inspiring quotes for long-Distance relationships

There are some successful love stories with Long-Distance Relationships. It may be difficult, but they can make their marriage or relationship work. 

Besides, people in this setup should not base their success on luck. Instead, it takes hard work, trust, patience, understanding, and love to make it work. 

Here are some inspiring sayings to help you successfully handle your long-distance relationship. 

Endless love

“If we survive this distance, our love can be endless.”

Michael T. Coe

The distance is just a part of the trial. But trust loyalty, and persistence are also being tested through the distance. Not all relationships can survive the distance of not being together. Without God in the picture, it could work harder, especially with all the changes happening.

One of the silent killers of marriage is not having communication; distance makes it harder for a couple to communicate. But when you genuinely want to make it work, love will always find its way. 

Some may struggle with time differences but still try to talk with their spouse or partner.

Moreover, distance is one of the most significant tests of your commitment to your partner. So when you make it work, that relationship could last a lifetime.

Meeting again

“The pain of parting is nothing to the joy of meeting again.”

Charles Dickens

One of the beauties of love is being hopeful despite the difficulties. Nothing is permanent, and everything changes. The same applies to your situation if you are in a long-distance relationship. 

It could take a long time, but everything will be worth it once you are with your loved ones. Besides, it is just like a mother waiting to give birth. The waiting process is excruciating, yet, when the child comes out, all her struggles will be nothing compared to the joy of seeing her child.

Furthermore, God wants us to be still and know He is God. (Psalms 46:10) When you surrender your relationship with God, you do not need to worry and be anxious; instead, you only need to be still and trust Him. 

Your distance is a test of your relationship and your faith in God. Your faith gives you hope that someday you and your spouse or partner will be with each other again.

True love endures

“I believe in the immeasurable power of love; that true love can endure any circumstance and reach across any distance.”

Steve Maraboli

Love is not a bed of roses but rather full of sacrifice. True love endures hardships and any situations, such as distance. When you love your spouse or partner, you will always choose them despite their distance.

In addition, your love could make you stronger even if it needs a lot of your energy to make it work. It may be tiring, yet when you are in love, you may rest, but never give up because you know it is always worth fighting for your devotion to have a happy home.

Besides, love is so powerful to make someone strong in waiting and enduring the struggles of getting married or in a relationship with someone miles away.

Never feel alone

“Thank God for men who manage to hold from afar, wipe tears away with tender words and dish out the life force that is hope. She has never felt so alone but out there, across an ocean, and in a foreign land, there is a man who loves her and would lay down his life just so she could feel the light once again.”

Donna Lynn Hope

With the advancement of technology, it is easier for couples in a long-distance setup to express their love for each other. It is easier to make video calls than before; they have to wait months to send and receive letters. 

If there is a will, there is a way. If you want your long-distance relationship to work, you will always make an effort to make your partner feel that you are always close to them. 

I always admire men who are committed to their relationships because they will always make way for their women to make them feel they are there in their ups and downs.

For women, especially if they are a mother, it is so difficult to become a parent alone while dealing with a lot of responsibilities. Often, they could feel like they are the only ones carrying all the burden in their family. 

Thus, when their husband tries their best to listen to and be with them no matter where they are, it is a significant help for women. They would not only feel courageous but also feel peaceful that their spouse supports them.

True love holds on

“I’ll hold you in my heart until I can hold you in my arms.”

Eddy Arnold

If you are in love, giving up is not an option. You will always choose to hold on to your spouse or partner no matter what happens. Regardless of how long, you would always wait until you are with each other again.

Some couples could take a year or more to be with each other. For instance, a soldier is assigned to a foreign land for months or years. His wife would have to wait and hold on to their vows until her husband came home.

As is written in 1 Corinthians 13:4, “Love is patient.” There may be many anniversaries that you have to celebrate through video calls. Nevertheless, there would be a time to celebrate it with each other’s arms. 

Living without someone to love

“Love is not finding someone to live with. It’s finding someone you can’t live without.”

Rafael Ortiz

Love is not just about living with each other. Nevertheless, it is about the person whom you cannot live without. Thus, you will always choose to fight for your love to work, no matter where they are. 

When you know you cannot live without your partner or spouse, you do everything for them to stay. You would choose to trust and be loyal to them. You would prefer to pray for them instead of worrying about them. 

Longingness might test your endurance, but your love for each other would help you hope that someday, somehow, you would be together.

Risk to love

“It is a risk to love. What if it doesn’t work out? Ah, but what if it does?”

Peter McWilliams

Loving takes a lot of risks. But isn’t it better to take the risk of knowing “what is” than trying to imagine “what ifs”? 

They say that you will never know if you do not try. Instead of regretting, just try to make your long-distance relationship work. Then maybe if it is God’s will, it could work.

If it is not, then at least you tried.

Besides, in love, you should be brave enough to try and not let your fears hinder you from achieving your happiness. Love can be risky and require you to sacrifice many things, but it is always worth it because you do it for your loved ones.
