Perfect Love

Perfect Love

The other day I joined a group that does a Bible journaling challenge. This week’s is Perfect Love. With Valentine’s Day this month I think this is so good. There are so many out there looking for that perfect love, but are getting caught up in things they shouldn’t. My heart aches to reach out to them and tell them, or at times shake them and go ‘why are you putting up with this?’

I don’t know what happened to my generation when it comes to love, but they seem to have it all wrong. Being hurt by the man you love is okay now. What? Since when? I don’t get it, I really don’t. Of course no man is going to be perfect. NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!

The only perfect man is God. This next part if for single girls and teens. Girlfriends, you need to stop chasing men. Stop it. It doesn’t end up well, ever. Get so close to God that they have to seek Him before even getting close to you. If you’re not a believer, now is no better time to repent and give your life to God.

Your self-worth isn’t measured by how sexy you try and dress or the man you’re with. I’ll say it again…stop it. God’s love is the only perfect love. We’re only perfected in love when we get saved.

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishments and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. 1st John 4:18.

I fear with the movie Fifty Shades that women are getting the wrong idea of love and men once again. There’s a meme going around on Facebook that says, it is only romantic because he’s a billionaire. If he was living in a trailer it would be an episode of Criminal Minds. This is so true.

I want to give a challenge to those of us who are seasoned in the Lord to take some of the younger ladies in church under our wings and mentor them. Show them with scripture on what we should be looking for in a man. What it means to have a deep relationship with our Father. Girlfriends, we’re princesses and are the apple of our Father’s eye, so why settle? He wants the best for us.
