In today’s society we notice television, music, billboards and all types of things that are fed to our eye gates are full of lust. It’s very easy to confuse lust and love with because we haven’t read in our bibles what love truly is. You know when you’re with that man/women they make you feel special, call you all the time and take you out and you just enjoy each others company. Then we do the ultimate no-no and tie our souls with these people and BOOM, all hell breaks loose. Why? Because we aren’t living in God’s will.

In the bible God clarified love with the bible verse above 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. It’s amazing how we tell people we love them and it’s been lust all along. I can see that in my past relationships it didn’t align with these scriptures so I was never in love or loved by a man other than God and Jesus Christ. When you are in lust it’s the physical connection that clouds our vision to knowing what love really is. This is why the physical connection was approved only to your husband or wife. God doesn’t want you sharing the temple that is your body with anyone and everyone.

When we engage in love and courtship that’s approved by God. Women God made the man the pursuer so that means you don’t go chose a husband. HE who finds a wife not SHE who stalks a husband as my good friend Mimi Atkins says. Men you are supposed to be pure, have your ducks lined in a row so you can take on a wife and provide for your family. The problem these days is we have started to Lust each other so we will make families before even knowing the person fully. Ignoring that we aren’t married, he’s unemployed, she’s a frequent club goer and expect the fullness and realness of the relationship. We involve ourselves in situations where we are unequally yolked and knows he won’t be a provider and that she won’t be a home maker and then complain about them. God has a plan for your love life, he KNOWS who he will send in your life for the rest of your life. Don’t be blinded by lust and how sweet he/she is on the eyes. Don’t ignore the fact that God is going to send you someone who will honor, love and respect you. Pray for your future mate even though you don’t know who they are. Work on yourself so you can sustain a marriage and not take nasty attitudes and egos into your marriage. NEVER forget that God has a plan for your love life and just be still and wait for him. Don’t taint your mind with provocative music, television shows and people who only come to knock you off your walk with God.
