GOD Is Love, and we love because he first loved us, 1 John 4:19. First love God, then love yourself, and then allow God to bring the right love into your life if he hasn’t already. For single women, could it be that God is still working on YOU to get you ready to receive the love he has for you?
Often times God has to prepare us for his blessings. God had to do a lot of work on me to prepare me to receive a Husband. I was fiercely independent as a single lady and it was difficult for me to open up to a man and allow myself to be vulnerable and experience true intimacy.
I had trust issues. I had lost my mother and was very much walled up emotionally, on and on. I’m here to tell you that all things are possible With God!! But you really have to strip yourself down and humble yourself and be honest with God and be serious about your relationship with him.
He can read your heart! He knows when you’re serious and when your not. If you’re one of those Sunday morning Christians trying to stay in the shallow end your wasting time!!! You have to come out into the deep!!!! And get ready for a haul.
It starts with your relationship with him, work on that first and he will give you the desires of your heart! The bible is clear “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be added onto you!”
If God has blessed you with a spouse Cherish them, love them, and don’t make the mistake of taking anything for granted. We need to honor God’s blessings, because the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. However, one thing is clear his love for us, and as a Loving father he wants the best for us. He is the creator of LOVE!
Tip of the day: Single Ladies. You are daughters of the King! You are a child of the most high God! You deserve the best and do not settle for less! It’s not lowering your standards to come down to his level it’s about bringing him up to yours.
But it’s not your job to change a man and don’t try because the man God has for you will come equipped! He will not be a fixer upper! Do you not know what the bible says about you? It says nothing that a man has, nothing that he can acquire can compare to YOU!
And I want you to think of yourselves from this day forward as that pearl of great price! Proverbs 8:11 “For wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire compares with her.”
Tip of the day: Married Ladies. To achieve a higher level of intimacy when spending time with your husband, do the unthinkable and experiment by both of you turning off your phones! Not silence or vibrate, OFF! This signifies that this is time set aside for us to connect as a married couple and we will be totally in the moment with no distractions! Just for this moment keep conversation to only about the two of you. No everyday stress talk, bills, kids, problems,etc….. concentrate solely on the two of you for that moment. Even if you are tempted to talk about other things.. RESIST just for this moment. Married Couples really do need to have some time that is all their own!!!!! Practice it over and over!

“If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.” 1 Corinthians 13:1-3
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” ~ 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
“Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.” ~ Romans 12:9-10
- “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.” ~ Ephesians 4:2-3
- “A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life.” ~ Proverbs 31:10-12
- “Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.” ~ Colossians 3:18-19
- “Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.” ~ 1 John 4:7
