A couple of thoughts in February (2013 remix)

When you think of February, what do you think of? Black History Month? Super Bowl? Presidents Day? If you don’t think of those, you are thinking of only one other thing:

Valentine’s Day

People like to get married or engaged in this month, on this specific day. That’s great and really sweet. But, why are reducing love to this short month?

I have thought of a couple of things this month to bring to you.

1. If you are looking for love, look to God. Let’s be real, we are trying to find someone with a very limited view on what love is and put them in a place where God should be. It’s like putting a small cylindrical peg in a large square hole. That’s going to leave room for things to seep through. Let God be God in your life. If He’s the foundation, everything else won’t crumble when you have things shake up your life.

But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides. 

Matthew 6:33 (AMP)

2. For those of you with a list (it’s okay to have had a list. Honest time, I did…LOL), it’s time to let that go! Look at it this way, your future husband/wife is your helpmate; your partner. We have to be equally yoked (which is Bible-ese for we have to be on the same page). In creating a list, you are essentially telling God you don’t like what He has planned for you before you met him/her. There is only one thing on my list: that she will always love god more than me. (I’m just the captain of the boat, not the boat owner).

3. Love should not be magnified only one or two months a year. If you love that man/woman like you say you do, don’t wait for a big moment to show them that. Love on them every day! That’s all I’m gonna say about that.

As a treat for reading this, you get to glimpse into my future. Here are two songs that I know are for my (future) wife

God Gave Me You – Bryan White

You – Jesse Powell
