The Love of My Life

In my season of singleness, I sometimes have feelings of loneliness.  I have met and spoke to other singles who have similar feelings.  One of the weapons I use to fight off these feelings of loneliness is writing/journaling.  I pour out whatever is inside of me on paper.  Sometimes those feelings are positive, in a state of thankfulness.  However in my periods of loneliness, the writing tends to be in a sad, “woe is me state of mind”.  Towards the end of my pity party, God shows up and reminds me, I have everything I need in Him.

One day not too long ago, the lonely feelings came upon me, so I decided to write a letter to “The love of my life”, which in my mind equated to the man that God is preparing for me.  In this writing I was sharing how I missed him and how my heart was ready to love him. I shared that I was preparing to be a selfless partner and friend.  Midway through this letter, I began to recount all of the times God had delivered me from areas of bondage as He was preparing me to be a wife.  Then I recounted the times God blessed me by answering my prayers or simply blessing me beyond anything I could ask or think.  I began to recount the love God had poured out to me and how He loved and accepted me in, as a sinner. Despite all of my filth and faults, God accepted me as I am, loving me unconditionally. As I pursued God, He began to teach me His ways and He worked on my heart, in the quest of showing me the princess of the King that I am. 

After I recounted all of these things, joy filled my heart!  I was no longer sad or lonely.  It was in that moment I realized, that I had already met “The Love of my Life”!  Jesus!  Jesus, is the love of my life!  I know many people say this and it can sound cliché, but when you take the time and write down on paper ALL of the things God has done for you, you cannot help but to feel special.  Truly loved. If you recount the time He saved you, the countless times He’s delivered you, the times He’s blessed you, you can’t help but to feel joy!  To make it personal for me, I recounted the very day He saved me, when He delivered me from the health scare of cervical cancer, when he delivered me  from the enemy’s attempts to take my life, when He delivered me from fornication, when He loved my son so much that He would save his life when the enemy told me to abort him 16 years ago, when He allowed me to graduate from college in 4 years despite having a child, how He blessed me to have a successful career at multiple fortune 500 companies despite being a single mother, how He’s blessed me to travel with my son, how He has provided me with more than enough despite the fact that I’m supposed to be a statistic and most importantly, the fact the He loves me unconditionally, just because.  He has shown me true love.  He’s never left me or forsook me despite the times when I’ve chosen to leave Him. He is still faithful!

Therefore, brothers and sisters in Christ, before you seek the love a man or woman, desiring to develop a relationship with a person, ensure the true love of your life is Jesus.  No man or woman can ever love you with the love your Father God has for you.  It is from Jesus that we learn how to love another person. We’re required to love how He has loved us.  We must love unconditionally even when we don’t feel “loving feelings” or feel we have been wronged by our mate. Why? Jesus still loved us despite of all the times we’ve sinned against Him.  We must possess the fruit of the spirit with the mate God has called us to, being loving, patient, kind, etc. towards them always (see Galatians 5:22-23).  If you have experienced true transformation with God, which I pray you have, then God has shown you true love.  It is our responsibility to love in the same manner.

May God bless and keep you!

Divine Appointments

Divine Appointments

Events and circumstances in our lives are not always just mere common occurrences but rather divine set-ups and many times they unfortunately go unrecognized. Hence, you did not recognize your answer or your blessing that you have been praying about.

The book of Samuel (Judge, Prophet & Priest) sites a clear situation in the case of Saul who had no idea he would be chosen as KING over Israel on a very ordinary day “going about” doing an ordinary task.  Saul was as ...

Testimonials: To God be the Glory!

January 19, 2015

O give thanks to the Lord for he is good: for his mercy endureth forever.

 Whoso is wise, and will observe these things, even they shall understand the lovingkindness of the Lord.  Psalm 107:1,43

My boyfriend shot! As I finished preaching one Sunday morning and stepping off the platform to minister individually to the needs of people who had come to the altar.  Out from nowhere a young lady appeared, approached me and asked if I would come quickly out to her van in front and pray. Frantically...

The Beauty of Affliction

October 26, 2011

So what's so beautiful about affliction?  Just think, without affliction we may not of had our current President, Mr. Obama.  So disturbed by the United States troublesome state of affairs, it moved him to toss his name on the presidential ballot with a mission of making change.

So what's so beautiful about affliction?  It was because of injustices and hardships, amongst classes of people that Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., came from behind his pulpit of preac...

The Pillars of Cloud and Fire

June 24, 2011

A word to those tired of waiting, those desiring to forge ahead, those desiring change, those being re-directed, or those in preparation.  All you have to do is to become sensitive and obedient to his doings in your life as you cross your Red Seas, “a place of transitioning.”

We know that the Israelites while enroute to a better place God had ordained for them, ONLY moved by day when the cloud moved (as to direct them by day). The Word tells us “they tarried LONG...

Divine Timing

March 21, 2011

 Many of us have witnessed children who want things right now!  I must say that as adults our attitudes as it relates to this haven’t changed much.  We still want it our way or the highway. We want our small business (as if we could really handle it) to grow leaps and bounds— now!  We just got there yesterday, and we already want a job promotion—now! We want our children to grow-up—now!


It would do us good to become cognizant of the importance of time.
  Did you know that over 20 time...

Call Me Deborah! A Woman, A Prophet, A True Leader!

March 4, 2011

True divine leaders are handpicked by God himself, not humans.  Many times he selects ordinary people to carry out his will in the earth. Unlike humans, he'll choose, not on the basis of race, gender, background, looks, stature, education and other earthly criteria, as we have seen so clearly in scripture.

In the bible you'll find leaders in which "the people" chose, and then other leaders "chosen by God" himself whereby we often see a distinct difference. Deborah, the prophetess, was fortuna...
