Everlasting Love

Have you ever been in a relationship and your boyfriend at the time wrote you a love letter?  Or, have you ever had a secret crush and you received a greeting card and nice note detailing his
adoration for you? If so, you probably scrutinized each word, took in every compliment and were sincerely flattered by the gesture, even if the feelings weren’t mutual.

Even if you’ve never received a love letter from an ex, I want to remind you that you actually have been given a love letter by someone, and that’s God. God loves you so much in that not only did He send His only begotten Son, Jesus, to die in your place for your sins (Isaiah 53:10)…not only did God send us the Holy Spirit to live inside of us and guide us after Jesus ascended back to heaven (John 14:16)…God made sure you are constantly reminded of His love and adoration for you as He inspired men to pen the pages of The Bible (2 Timothy 3:16) – so you’ll always know that you’re loved.

Never take for granted God’s love for you. Constantly remind yourself by reading parts of His  Love Letter to you each day.  God loves you with an unconditional, everlasting love that will never leave you nor forsake you (Hebrews 13:5). Not only that, He loves you so much that He has committed to spend the rest your life with you, including the afterlife – He wants to spend eternity with you. There is no greater love than the love of Jesus.  He is the greatest love of all.

The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with loving kindness have I drawn thee.  Jeremiah 31:3

“I Love You, But My Thumbs Are Tired”

Guys, you gotta stop texting me when I ask you to call me instead! Why is that such a hard instruction to follow? As nice as it is to hear from you in the middle of the day, texting should not be the primary method of communication, especially when you are just getting to know me.

If when I met you, I specifically asked you NOT to text me & you proceed to text me then I automatically know you aren’t good at following directions. I’ve even had men text me, “I know you asked me not to text you, but…. ” SO WHY ARE YOU TEXTING ME THEN??! This is an instant turnoff, guys.

You can’t get to know my personality by texting me. You can’t hear the inflection in my voice or hear how my day went if you don’t pick up the phone & call me.  You certainly aren’t focused on me if you text instead of call because hours can go by between texts, but a call can be wrapped up in 15-20 minutes.

I don’t get to hear your sexy voice if you’re always texting me. I can’t crack a joke over text the same way I can over the phone. I can’t sing to you if we aren’t talking. I can’t even focus on what I’m supposed to be doing if I have to keep checking my phone so I can respond to your texts. And I certainly can’t get anything done if I have to keep typing back & forth.

I try to compromise by texting back occasionally but don’t get it twisted – I would much rather talk to you then strain my neck & my fingers messaging you instead. So, why oh why men, do you insist on texting when you know it’s not what we want?! STOP texting me, and pick up the phone instead!

Chocolate Vent’s Quote of the Week: “YOU’RE NOT POWERFUL ENOUGH TO STOP GOD’S PLAN.”

Lord, the God of our ancestors, are you not the God who is in heaven? You rule over all the kingdoms of the nations. Power and might are in your hand, and no one can withstand you.” {2 Chronicles 20:6}

Still Believe

What Word have you let slip so far this year?

Or even prior to that, have you given up hope on the promises of God for you, whether it was last year or previous years – have you grown complacent and taken on the mantra, “It is what it is.”

Have you grown to accept “business as usual” and stopped expecting the unexpected in your life?

This reminds me of the story of Mary.  Mary was a woman of God who received a message from an angel of God- she was to give birth to a Son, Jesus Christ, though she was a virgin.  She couldn’t see how it could happen at first, then she just accepted the proclamation as she stated, “Be it unto me, according to thy Word” (Luke 1:38)

However, in the meantime and in between time, she got pregnant and had to carry Jesus to full term and give birth to Him – all in faith.  At any moment she could have chosen not to believe; she could’ve said, “Me, pregnant? How could that be? I don’t think so!” Yet she still chose to remain steadfast and unmovable, believing God’s Word from the messenger of God to be true.

In the same manner, what Word has God spoken to you about? Has God told you years ago that you will be married one day, yet you haven’t seen the manifestation yet?

I’d just like to encourage you, in spite of how long it’s been, to hold on to God’s Word, and hold on to your faith. Don’t let it slip, get back on top of things when it comes to reading God’s Word and believing it to be true for you.

As Mary has learned and as you know – with God all things are possible. (Matthew 19:26) Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.  (Hebrews 2:1) So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (Romans 10:17)
