Good Morning Everyone! A Wonderful Friday is upon us and I pray that everyone has an amazing day! Keep your head up and know that all the goals and dreams that you have within yourself can happen for you with prayer and patience! God bless everyone on today and know that all that you want and all that you desire, with the help of God, CAN HAPPEN!
I think in this day and age we get so caught up in who we want to end up with and be with Romantically. Everywhere you turn around, it's someone doing something big for someone they want to be with. Is Forever truly forever anymore when it comes to relationships? The only love that I know that will be there forever, without any hesitation, is the Love that Jesus Christ has for us. But think about it? How much time do we spend during the days of our lives searching, chasing, going after that Eros, Romantic, Passionate Human love more than the Love of God? The Word of God reads that God "will never leave nor forsake us." (Deut. 31:6) How many times has that lover that we chased after and pursued curved, cheated, lied, treated us bad, even just LEFT, and all that effort that we put into chasing after them went for not? What if we put some of that effort into chasing after God, just as much as God chases after us? Hebrews 12:6 says "For whom the Lord Loves he chastens." See, when God chases after us, it's because He loves us and He is making us better for His Glory. How many people have we been with that we can say they made us a better person after we were with them? SHOOT, even while we were with them, how many of those people made us BETTER? See, we have been created to do amazing works for the Kingdom of God, and we truly need to thank God for all the relationships that didn't work. God only wants the best for us, and what He has for us, is the very, very best.
I'm not telling people today to not go after the one that you love. Romantic Relationships are great. The thing is, we can't get so caught up in them, that we forget about serving God and His people. See, a person that truly loves you, will push you to do great things. One of those great things that person will do is push you closer into the arms of God. We get so blind sighted by love sometimes of a person, that we almost forget about who we are, who we serve (God), and where we've come from. We flip out at times when a person that we said they loved leaves us, does us wrong, or rejects us. Yes, it hurts, but we need to thank God that they left sometimes. Sometimes God has to take them out of our lives, so that we can be better people for God, others, even ourselves in our lives.
Don't think for one second that any Human love is greater than the Love that God has for us! God loves us more than anyone ever could. His love for us is true, and even when everyone who said that they loved us, leaves us, Jesus is always there, still to hold us and be there for us. YES, it gets lonely sometimes, but it's better to be free, focused, and open to God being single, than in a relationship that's blocking your blessings and keeping you away from the things of God. It's time to do better and want better for ourselves. If that romantic relationship is not pushing you towards the things of God and towards being a better person, than before you get too deep into that relationship, you might want to reconsider what direction your soul is going in. Love is Beautiful, but your love needs to be catered for, paid attention too, and cared for by the right people. Don't allow anyone negative to take your joy, peace, and happiness today. Know that you were created to do great and amazing things, and Jesus is there to help you accomplish them! God bless!
