Love Series: Letting Go Of Love

Love-Is-Letting-GoJust call me the teflon woman! I’m not even phased by what would have floored me in the past. That’s because God is doing a new thing in me. I just have to continue to obey God and WATCH him work. Yes, I will post when I feel led, but really the future is in God’s hand and when he has revealed it (Amos 3:7) there is nothing to be concerned about. Things are quickly coming to a head. Plus God told me that the truth has been reconfirmed to someone yet again through wise counsel. There is no way around it.

God showed me some things and it doesn’t mean that what was shown to others was not of God. But we can be deceived about the outcome. For example, you may meet someone who seems to rock your world and you form a real connection with that person. You may feel this person is the love of your life. But that doesn’t mean you will marry that person. And once you know you won’t, you have to let go.

God is in control and it’s smart for us to listen to HIM. God knows who best for our future. We may think we know, but God knows. Sometimes we just can’t see it because we don’t really know people.

I remember a few years back listening to someone dreams and asking God about them. I was not going to assume it was from God because of what they shared. People lie all the time and they are good liars too. lol  But I remember praying and then the person shared something that was the answer to MY prayer. The person told me they had a dream that THEIR OWN DREAMS WERE DECEIVING THEM!! I was stunned. You see God told the person that they were being deceived by their dreams. He was warning them that what they believed would not be, even if the situation seemed to manifest. This is why you need REAL discernment.

Sometimes women can get infatuated with a man and just make up stuff and it seeps over into your dreams. And it not easy if what we feel is reciprocated. But that doesn’t mean it’s God’s perfect will. In the end, God knows what is best and we must trust him him or wake up in a nightmare. I trust him with my heart. How about you?

Now here is a Word of warning. Once God says no, we should make every attempt to let go. Continuing to lead someone on, or make them think they have a future with us, when we know they don’t, can be dangerous. It’s best to clearly communicate truth as best we can and pull back. If you don’t, it can turn ugly.

Letting go of dreams and the dream of love or “love” is never easy. But the longer you hold on to it, the longer you will delay your future. Trust that God has something so much better. Just because you don’t think it’s better, doesn’t mean it isn’t. Remember. God see all and knows all. Trust him!

Amos 3:7

New International Version (NIV)

7 Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing
without revealing his plan
to his servants the prophets.

Love Series: No Longer Selfish

I love youThe other day my Pastor spoke a timely word, and God showed me I was selfish. Someone was talking and I was afraid to respond. I was not purposely being selfish, just afraid to respond.

But the sermon was clear that love gives with no account of what is returned. This is a hard concept to put into place. Most of us are conditioned to responding to what is given to us. But I feel God freeing me. There are a lot of things that I have to be taught. It doesn’t always come naturally. But I know I have it in me to love unconditionally.

I’m excited! It will be nice to love someone unconditionally. God knows! It’s just like me driving. It just feel so natural and I am so comfortable. It just feels right. I feel that way about this love that God has given me. It just feels like now is the time to show that love!

1 Corinthians 13:4-6

New International Version (NIV)

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

For Such a TIme as This

EstherheQueen-1-1I’ve been trying to decipher what God is doing right now and it seems to be clear. God has called and reserved me for such a time as this. God has reserved me for the storm. I am not mad or upset. God has a plan and it all going to play out in this season.

God has a way of keeping us from going in the wrong direction even if it seems like the right direction. I’m amazed at how we can be fooled (catfished, punked). But it’s okay This scenario that I am looking out is going to work for the good. Believe it!

If you are in the midst of something that doesn’t make sense, don’t worry. In the end, it will ALL make sense.

Esther 4:14

New International Version (NIV)

14 For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?”
