Love part 3
It's been a long time since I wrote a blog I think it's almost been a year and a half. So for those who read my blogs and get encouragement from I'm sorry for leaving you hanging, I've just been on a writing hiatus I guess you could say. It's been very hard for me to come up with something inspirational and uplifting but I think I just found one, or at least I hope. After you read this blog you might jump to some crazy conclusions like he's gone crazy, or he doesn't know what he's talking about, or he's gone off the deep end and becoming very judgmental. I assure you I'm not being judgmental and not the judging type but I have learned a few things that might help couples. Now I know what you're thinking this guy is trying to help couples and he's single this is weird! Yes I know this sounds weird because I'm single but during this time of being single I have learned a lot about relationships, love and marriage. I will put out what I have learned and hope it helps.
I am 24 years old and have never been in a relationship my entire life which really hurts because I am a man who loves God with a tremendous passion, I mean my heart beat for him daily and a lot of people have told me that I've encouraged them. Some even said that I'm the most godly man they've ever met. Someone even said that I showed them a love that they've never seen before and that I go out of my way to spread that love around. I received a message on Facebook not too long ago that said this
Hope all is well! Just wanted to let you know that I was bragging on your recently. I was talking to someone about having faith and happiness no matter what your situation is. I love your outlook on life, and the faith that you have in Christ. It is something that is very contagious!
After I read this my heart sunk because I never expected something like this to be said and it made me feel good. When I was done reading I asked God why do I keep receiving all this encouragement and yet I haven't found a woman who gives me this encouragement? He told me very plainly you need to finish college first. When you are done with school then I will set things in motion for you and the one that I have prepared for you. I also asked him when can I have the angel you Have prepared? He said again when you are done with school. So during my time in school he and I have been working on his version of what love is. God has been taking me through the YouvVersion relationships Bible study, anger Bible study, marriage and commitment Bible study, love Bible study, lead like Jesus, learning spiritual discipline Bible study, seeking God Bible study, confidence Bible study, temptation Bible study, sex Bible study, love romance and marriage Bible study, and so much more. He's having me go through all of these Bible studys so I can learn from him and what he wants. One of the Scriptures that he pointed out to me this morning was 1st Corinthians 13:1–8 which reads, if I speak in the tongues of men or Angels but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging symbol. Is I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and give I have 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. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not need this on 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 preserves. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
I had to ask myself those words describe me in some ways yes and in other ways no. I have to work on a few of them. But then Jesus spoke to me and said you need to find someone who will love me more than they love you so ask them this question when you are in a relationship, do you love Jesus more than me? If they say no breakup with some because if they don't love me with their full heart how can they love you? That was a very interesting conversation between Jesus and I. Saw a will in this blog with this question for those of you who are in relationship do you love that person more then God? If so you need to change your heart.
