   Today on the blog I wanted to share what "love" means to me. February is one of my favorite months! It's something about the enormous stuffed teddy bears, the sappy Nicholas Sparks movies (The Choice now in theaters is a MUST), and of course, all the yummy chocolate.

 Love is such an amazing emotion to me in every way.  God has given us the privilege of giving and receiving. It's not just the material things I cherish. February reminds me of the love of our amazing God. 

In today's world I feel we have been so consumed in earthly relationships that we forget our relationship with our eternal father. It is so common to dream of the "fairytale" ending and don't get me wrong, I'm guilty of it as well, but God should be the center of any relationship and this is where my point begins. From past relationships, I have lacked keeping my eyes on my Father. I looked to my partner for happiness, compassion, and acceptance.. things God shows me on a daily basis! 

A relationship shouldn't replace your relationship with God, it should build it! "The purpose of a Godly relationship and potential marriage is not about you. It's about how you and your significant other can serve in the kingdom." WOW.. lightbulb moment?!? 

When you begin to understand that God is love, everything just feels right. When you give him all control and KNOW he has a perfect plan for your life, you'll notice things starting to fall into place. So to all you beautiful ladies.. have faith in your walk with Jesus! Don't let the material things consume your thoughts of what love should be. KNOW that YOU are the daughter of the KING. Remember that He will do much more to fill the love-space than any person or material thing ever could.  Most importantly, know that YOU ARE LOVED beyond measure. 

Happy month of love & bliss!!

  3. Hi Mary, you are right. Our focus on natural things is consuming us and we a missing the greatest Love of all in the Father. I like your point of unity to serve the Father. God is amazing that even our service to Him will be satisfying when we are in His will.

  8. Amen! Thank you for the reminder of God's incredible love for us. I love how you talk about how our relationships should build our relationship with God. I'm fortunate enough to be married to an incredible woman who does indeed, build into my relationship with Christ.
