We make LOVE so difficult! But you know what, it doesn’t have to be. Learn to love you, love God, and the rest falls into place accordingly. All too often we love only to get and receive love. True love isn’t quid pro quo. You do for me and I’ll do for you. True love takes no account of wrong doing, yet extends grace. Grace is imperative in order to experience true love. God is the perfect example. Stop looking for love and learn to love! Once this happens, I promise that LOVE will find you….Be safe, be blessed, and know that you are loved. ❤️
When you allow God to mend the broken pieces of your heart you find that love was always waiting in the wind. Loving God plays a huge part in loving yourself and being able to love someone else. Stop holding what God has purposed for you hostage by living in past hurt and disappointment. Allow yourself to be freed from all the pain, disappointment, insecurity, and anxiety. Love is a beautiful thing when respected, honored, nurtured, and coveted. Start by loving God and then yourself. The rest will come! Have a fabulous Friday. Be safe, be blessed, and know that you are loved. ❤️
Just finished watching a message from #TheLoveLetter series by Bishop T.D. Jakes. What a revelatory moment! Sometimes you have to suffer and labor a while before you are able to pass the test. But in the meanwhile, allow love to lead. Watching, fighting, praying, and most of all working to lead in LOVE. Sometimes that will mean long suffering. Just know that it won’t be in vain and that just like you see the truth in others actions, so does God. Love anyway……Be safe, be blessed, and know that you are loved.
Don’t give up! You are on the homestretch. Don’t get anxious, don’t get frustrated, don’t stress, and don’t worry! God has begun a new thing in you and it’s just about time for all to be revealed. The word brought forth today during worship encouraged us to “Be Patient with the Process.” Sometimes we get so anxious and uncomfortable that we hinder ourselves while in the process. I know it may hurt, you may not understand, and you may just be tied if going through. No matter what keep going, and DON’T GIVE UP! You are so close to your breakthrough!!! The process may be painful, but the reward will be beyond your imagination. Stay the course and trust the process! You’re almost there. Be safe, be blessed, and know that I love you! ❤️
Enjoy yourself. Find ways to keep your mind busy. Sometimes we have to develop a new norm. I find evenings are the most difficult times for me. So, I have adjusted my schedule to include new things to do. Your mind will only do what it has been trained to do. Be careful to not fall into old, unhealthy habit’s. That is a trap of the enemy!!! The enemy doesn’t want you to heal and be happy. He does his best work when you remain stuck, unwilling to change, and uninspired about your future. Surround yourself with positive, uplifting people. Engage in healthy activities that promote and push you towards your purpose. Exercise. Taking care of your body is just as important as taking care of your mind. Get out and move. Lastly, continue to pray. Oftentimes when we begin to feel better our pray life drops off. BIG mistake! Your prayer life is just as important when you are “good” as it is when you’re in the valley. I hope your day is filled with lots of fun and laughter. Be safe, be blessed, and know that I love you. ❤️
There is something about heartbreak and God that provides an intimate encounter. Most often, this encounter involves brokenness. For many reasons the heart may grieve, hurt, or be broken. Nonetheless, God is near those that have broken spirits. I am finding that in my many heartbreak situations God hears even my silent tears. Today, I am thankful for these intimate moments with God. These moments provide a place of truth, clarity, and reaffirms my PURPOSE. See sometimes God will allow you to see situations, although they hurt, to protect and save you. I may not understand while I am yet in another valley situation, but one thing I DO know is that seasons will change! I will stay focused, and remain faithful to the word of God and his plan for my LIFE. Be safe, be blessed, and know that I love you.
So, yesterday one of my administrators posted some very thought provoking points of discussion. As I joined the conversation what I found most intriguing is the number of women that have had some of the same experiences. Each woman that chimed in had been hurt by someone in which they’d trusted. Some of this hurt has caused scars that have yet to heal. Today, I pray that every person who has been scarred by a previous relationship be healed. Allow yourself an opportunity to love and be loved again. This doesn’t excuse the behavior of others but will allow you the freedom you need to move on. We are all imperfect people trying to exist in a world trust had many challenges. If you want to be in a relationship work on you first. Work on being the best you possible. Hurt people, hurt people. We’ve got to break this cycle. Love more and forgive often. The best relationship to begin with is with God. Allow his presence in your life and watch your life change. Healthy relationships are hard work. They require trust, honesty, communication, and respect. Most importantly, they require God. I love you all and I pray you have a wonderful Tuesday. Be safe, be blessed.
We’ve been discussing Love and Relationships all February. As we end this month, I’d like to pose a question. What have you gained from love? What has love taught you? Leave your answers in the comments! Let’s talk……
