The Lost Love Lust

The Lost Love Lust

“Anyone who touches your breast who is not your husband, is playing with your destiny” – A quote from the recent God’s Vineyard Ministries Convention. This comment kind of just jumped out at me, such power in it. In our generation, there is so much lust and sexual immorality, it seems as if nobody will achieve their destiny. I cannot lie, I was no saint before I became born again, but hopefully God has forgiven me, and whoever he has for me to be my wife will forgive my past too. But anywayyyyy… The key things this post will be looking at are Love and Lust.

Love and Lust can never compare. Let’s just start by putting that there. Lust takes, Love gives. But what exactly am I saying by this? When you lust after someone, you are not only attempting to take away their purity and holiness, but you are also attempting to take away your spiritual blessings. JOB  31:12 refers to lust as a fire that burns to destruction; it would have uprooted my harvest. So the same way lust would destroy the harvest, is the same way lust will destroy your life. Lust is not something that can be joked around with, it is a sin against your own body (1 Corinthians 6:18), a body that was made as a temple for God (1 Corinthians 6:13). 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 specifically lets you know that those who are sexually immoral will not inherit the kingdom of God, so you can see that I’m not joking when I write that lust will destroy your life, and the Pastor was not joking when he said “anyone who touches your breast who is not your husband is playing with your destiny”. (There is a lot of scripture from Corinthians because Corinth was notorious for its wealth and the luxurious, vicious and immoral acts of the people… Kind of like London these days).

Love gives. But what does it give?

1) Love gives you patience and strength (Genesis 29:20), Can you imagine waiting for so long for something, but because of the love you have, it feels like nothing… These days, if a girl is refusing to sleep with a guy, he may say I love you, and all of a sudden, she’s given up her purity. But what they don’t understand is that real love is not sex, real love waits. How can you claim you love someone, but then proceed to destroy their destiny.

2) Love gives you peace (Proverbs 10:12), hatred indeed covers dissension, whereas Love covers all wrongs. There is absolutely no way on this earth you can have peace in your heart while angry or upset with another person. There’s times where I’m annoyed with someone and I try and read the bible, but I don’t understand a thing, so I have to resolve it. If I feel like I dislike someone these days, I try and pray for them (Matthew 5:43-45), and truly I find much more peace in my heart because I have done a loving thing as opposed to maintaining hatred and resentment.

3) Love gives you a knowledge of God (1 John 4:8), God is love, so wherever you reject love in your life, God will not work there. This is very important. If you are just sleeping around, treating members of the opposite sex as objects, how then will you gain knowledge of what God has in store for you? This can also apply to a number of other areas in life too, wherever you want to see God’s work or gain knowledge of his plan, just treat that area with a little love.

Our Father, as Jesus died for us out of Love, we pray that you give us all Love for our brothers and sisters. We pray that we will not succumb to the temptations of the flesh which shall lead to sure destruction, but that we may turn away from worldly things and walk in love so that we can see and know your plan for our lives. In Jesus name, Amen.

In Celebration of God's Love For Us

Sunday is what we call Resurrection Sunday.  Yes, to many of you it is Easter; but to many Christians it's much more.  It is the day we celebrate God's unconditional love for us by suffering, dying, and then rising triumphantly from the dead.  Why did he do it?  He didn't have to. He had all power - but He chose to.  He chose to die because He loves us! 

How will you celebrate and share the love of Christ this holiday?  Will it be the traditional new outfit, church, and dinner?  Or will there be a change?  Will you reflect on His love then share that love with others.  Will you show unconditional love to your family and friends...especially those who rub you the wrong way or who you have a grudge against.  Just as Christ  chose to give his life, you can choose to love others and become a better Christian.  I'll end with the words of one of my favorite Resurrection Gospel Songs:

The world had need of a Savior,
Man had gone as far as he could go.
He was at the end of his rope.
His sacrifices were useless.
The blood of calfs and sheep would work no more,
God loved us so He gave us new hope.
And that new hope was Jesus
He was to sacrifice his life.
To a world that rejected Him.
Cried for it, died for it, I don't know why.

I don't know why He did it but He did,
He didn't have to do it but He did
Yes he did!

Make a choice to love unconditionaly, not just for the holiday, but for life.  Help somebody. Share the gift of Christ Jesus.

Happy Resurrection Day!

For Single Ladies Only: The Script Called Life

Do you know that God has written a script for you?  It is called "Life".  No two scripts are the same.  Each has its own set of twists and turns, successes and failures, excitement and disappointments.

Your "Life" was created by God and He placed you in the leading role. Don't you know that God knows the plot, every twist, every turn and He wrote the end of the story! Every story God writes has a great ending--if we play the role correctly.  We can't ad lib our lines....we can't change the script...if we do, the ending of the story may change and our lives will take a different turn than the one intended by God. 

Are you trying to change your script?  Have you taken over God's directing role?  Don't do it!  God's story is much better than anything you can write--that is if you stay in His will.  Don't force relationships that aren't meant to be.  Don't just be with someone to be with someone.  Let God select the person to play that supporting role. Let Him select the rest of the supporting cast in your life.  His directing will win a best picture award and you will win the Best Acting Award in a Leading role!  Rise up to receive your award!

For Single Ladies Only: Will You Be HIS Valentine?

Do you have the Valentine's Day blues? Been there, done that. I have spent many a Valentine’s Day alone. And I’ll just say it, it’s hard! While the majority of the world is celebrating love, you’re at home trying to find something to watch on TV. Or better yet, you hang out with a bunch of other lonely women and all of you cry the blues. What can you do to overcome the Valentine Blues?

Make a Date with God for a Beautiful Valentine's Evening

Take the Focus off of You. Make someone else’s day. Find a newly widowed person or elderly person and make the day about them. Doing something for someone else helps keep you focused on what is really important in life. Your acts of kindness will be appreciated. You will feel joy for helping someone else and then you will also realize that your life is not all bad.

Ask God to be your Valentine. Make a date with God and spend the time praising and worshiping Him. He is the ultimate lover- He loves your soul. Go all out- light candles, play worship music, get into His word and feel His Presence. He will make your Valentine’s evening the best yet.

I’m thankful that my days alone on Valentine’s Day are over. God has provided a husband who spoils me rotten on this day. It took a long time to get here. My advice is to be patient, don’t settle and allow God to send you your God-sent husband, just as He sent mine. It will be worth the wait.

Make up your mind that you will NOT be lonely on Valentine's Day.You are loved. Will you be HIS valentine?
