GOD BLESS YOU, BELOVED!!! THE LORD IS GREAT & GREATLY TO BE PRAISED!!! I was sitting in my office and as I was doing some work on my computer, I had a moment...I felt like listening to some good, old OLDIES! So!!! I got my phone and located Smokey Robinson! (AND YES...I'M STILL SAVED!!!) As I was listening to the lyrics of "Being With You", I had another EPIPHANY....The words of the song are:
"I DON'T CARE IF THEY START TO AVOID ME; I DON'T CARE WHAT THEY DO! I DON'T CARE ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE BUT BEING WITH YOU!"
I remembered when I once felt that way about someone....MAYBE YOU MAY HAVE BEEN THERE ONCE (OR TWICE) YOURSELF! I defied my parents objections, the opinions of well-meaning friends, and ALL LOGIC in order to be with the object of my affection. I dropped out of school, abandoned all the moral values my mother instilled in me, and went off to be with "THE ONE"...only HE WASN'T the one....I invested years of my life in relationships that have turned out badly all because I was LED OF MY FLESH, and could not see that I WAS OUT OF ALIGNMENT WITH THE WILL OF GOD FOR MY LIFE. How many hopes and dreams have taken a back seat to the desires of our flesh? Have you felt as if you wasted years of your life with people who have not added, but subtracted from you? It takes a few lessons to truly learn that not everybody is meant to stay in our lives. People come into our lives for certain seasons, and when their season has served its purpose, we must learn to release them and MOVE FORWARD. In spring, flowers bloom. But they could not bloom if a SEED had not been planted in a previous season. Some people are only supposed to plant a seed. Others come into our lives to water the seeds that others have planted. BUT IT IS GOD WHO INCREASES US!!! (1st Corinthians 3:6-7). Too many times, we get involved in projects, with people, and in dilemmas WITHOUT CONSULTING GOD. Then, we want Him to rescue us out of our gigantic messes. Or, we "find Mr./Mrs. Right" ; & LIE on God & say He sent us our KING/QUEEN! When it turns out that our "Mr./Mrs. Right" was "ALL WRONG", we are back at square one...out of ALIGNMENT with the plan and the purpose of God for our lives. THANK GOD that Psalms 34:17 says "THE RIGHTEOUS CRY& THE LORD HEARETH,& DELIVERTH THEM OUT OF ALL THEIR TROUBLES" !!! If you find yourself our off alignment with God's plan for your life, MAKE JESUS THE OBJECT OF YOUR AFFECTION!!!LIFT UP YOUR EYES TO THE HILLS, WHERE YOUR HELP COMES FROM( Psalms 121:1)!!! GOD IS OUR PRESENT HELP IN TROUBLE (Psalms 46:1)!!!! & HE WILL DELIVER YOU!!! You, too, can be "REALIGNED" RIGHT NOW!!! IN JESUS' NAME!!!
