Valentines Sanity Tips


[ Clique aqui para ler o artigo em Português ]

A lot of people I know struggle with the whole ‘single’ thing.

Let’s realise God isn’t calling us to the common dating scene that breaks hearts – He wants two people – set apart working as one team to achieve HIS AMAZING PURPOSES through relationships.

You are a prized possession! God has the perfect match for you! Don’t settle for less!

Trust in the Lord with ALL YOUR HEART-do not depend on your own UNDERSTANDING. Seek HIS will in ALL you do, and he will show you which path to take. (see Prov 3:5-6)

Take delight in the Lord, and HE WILL GIVE you your heart’s desires. (see Psalm 37:4)

SURRENDER your life to God, build GREAT FRIENDSHIPS with those who do the same, BELIEVE in faith for His match…and LET HIM write your love story!

God spells LOVE: G.I.V.E

What is True Love?

God spells LOVE: G.I.V.E!

Jesus said: “There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” (John 15:13)

Let’s be inspired today to surrender our own independent lives to God – and only then can we selflessly give to those that He puts in our life!

Two people are NEVER compatible. They CHOOSE TO BECOME compatible by selflessly giving 110%.

Let’s stop trying to FIND the right match and instead BE the right match.

If two people WORK TO BE the right match, that’s selfless, giving, – and it will last a lifetime of sacred romance when God brings their soulmate across their path.

Get to know somebody before you give your emotions to them

It’s easy to have catch a CRUSH. A beautiful or charming person can get the emotions pumping for sure! But God says we need to protect our hearts above all – because it determines the path of our life. (see Proverbs 4:23)

Remember: Just because we have a crush on someone doesn’t mean we should start a relationship with them. Lets get to know people as friends and find out WHO THEY REALLY ARE as people before we GIVE OUR EMOTIONS to them.

Who is the person beyond the surface appearance?

Are they giving, thankful and selfless?

Have they FULLY sold-out for God and love Him intimately?

How do they treat undesirable people… or their own family?

Remember: How a girl treats her father and how a guy treats his mother is important – it’s often how they will treat their future mate.

How will they treat you when romance isn’t in the air or when the baby throws up?

Its easy to fool ourselves into WANTING TO BELIEVE something about a person… Before we give our emotions… let’s get to really know them!

Marriage is for life, not just a hot Friday date!

Fresh thinking!

So you want to get married and be the best lover ever, right? But even if you have the HOTTEST mate, you can wreck it because of stinking thinking!

Mindsets from past relationships or from rebellion and abuse back home can creep into our relationships.

Commitment problems or gender confusion can often be linked to sour relationships with parents.

God says we need to value our parents to live blessed. (see Eph 6:2-3)

To PROVE God’s PERFECT WILL in our lives, we need to TRANSFORM our THINKING (Rom 12:2)

Lets INVITE Jesus into those walled areas of our minds and hearts – to HEAL us.

We need to forgive and make right with our parents too – regardless of whose fault it was!

Sobering, but very freeing!

Grasp the future that God has for you!

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. (Jeremiah 29:11)

“Life may have not worked out as you had planned, but I am working it out for your own Good! Just stick by my side and hang onto me, my precious child. LET GO and let ME lead you. Don’t forget that dream that I PLACED in your heart. Hold onto that promise I gave you! Stir up yourself to eagerly catch it.

You may have walked through a few storms when you wandered in your own strength, but now let Me carry you into the sunshine…

Hang on… be patient and learn from me… Anticipate and eagerly expect that promise…” – God
