Motivational Moment: I'm in Love

...with Jesus that is! ;)




I've loved this spoken word (truth) from day one! It speaks about the love of God for us (women), and no matter how much we search for that in men, we'll never find it. True love can be found in God, who can then lead you to the one He's made for you, here on earth. 

Jesus is our savior, no man can fill the place/void He's made to fill. Chase God! Don't seek after men, searching for what only God can do for you. Don't let your search and desperation for love, push you away from your first true love; Jesus. He is the one who laid His life down for you, even though you don't deserve it.

Great is His love for you and me! Daily soak up His word (love) and continually be at His feet.

Take care! :)

  1. You are definitely right sister-too many women out here seeking the kind of love only God can give them.
    I love how when you talk about God/Jesus your post is less viewed and people don't comment. Too many people out here ashamed of their religion or don't want to make anybody "uncomfortable"...
    P.S. Love the hair!! :)

    1. Thanks for taking the time to comment! God's love surpasses all.. It's unconditional! :)

      Ha. You're right, but I rather inspire and encourage others, than acquire loads of meaningless comments. I'm not ashamed of the Gospel, that's why I share :)

  4. I love the post. I think this message should definitely be spread far and wide because it is what women all around the world need to hear. It is almost as if we have all become brainwashed to think that we are nothing without a boyfriend or husband. People put so much into their looks and how they behave always trying to impress some man/woman, or they put a lot of effort in hunting for one that they have forgotten and neglected the Only Man that can truly give us the desires of our hearts, IF we delight ourselves in him.

  5. I think this is a message that should be spread far and wide to both men and women. It is almost as if we have all been brainwashed to think that we are nothing without that mate/spouse. We put so much emphasis on trying to impress, we work so hard hunting and searching, and we forget and neglect the Only Man that can truly give us the desires of our hearts. It is a sad situation, but if we refocus our attention on God, we will have peace, joy, and growth even in the midst of our singleness, and we can truly appreciate the mate that God will choose to place in our lives.

    1. You're definitely right, Ms!

      One problem I can identify, when people begin to 'chase' after the opposite sex is, a loss of inner peace and security. Men/women are not secured (enough) with themselves and who they are in Christ, so they try to find other means to fill fulfilled. But, chasing after such things is pointless, it's like chasing after the wind.

      We can never truly find/get what we want, unless we find it in the One who created what we're chasing after. (I hope that made sense! :)

      I just stumbled on a quote on Tumblr and I thought it fits so well with this theme:

      "If women would yearn for closeness with Jesus the way they yearn for closeness with an earthly male, their lives would be absolutely transformed.” -Dee Brestin

    2. It makes perfect sense! And the quote sums it up. Our lives are defined in Christ because we were made for, by and through him. We are destined to be like him, so he knows us, and everything we could possibly need. All he wants us to do is trust that He can supply them to us.
