Enlarge Your Circle of Love We can be very shallow. If others do not dress like us or appear to be like us, we reject them. People are daily being judged by their skin color, background, heights, weight, and etc… … Continue reading
The day will come when you realize that your friends were truly your enemies, and your enemies were never meant to be your enemies. The day will come when you will have to learn how to accept changes and live … Continue reading
Isn’t it funny how we hear about love and how we’re supposed to walk in love, but we still struggle with love—daily. I’ve written about it before, but here’s a different approach. Sometimes, I think to myself, “It is nearly … Continue reading
Moving on whether they let you or not. Loving whether they hate you or not. Letting go even when they choose to hold on. Walking away even when they want you to hang around. Forgiving even when they continue to … Continue reading

Many people believe that Love is nothing less than perfect. They see pictures of couples and think, ”Aw, I want what they have.” Like this couple below. HOLD THAT THOUGHT Like I always say, don’t envy what you see. You’ll … Continue reading
Imagine a world without love, we would all be at no value. Imagine a world without love, it would be pointless. Imagine a world without love. What would it be like? Even if your heart has been broken. When you … Continue reading
You know…in life, there’s no point of envying other people or getting mad at the world because you don’t have what you want!
Each thing at its own timing.
If all of your friends are getting blessed, be happy for them! When your turn comes, you’ll want them to be happy for you too.
I have a good example I heard from a friend:
When the postal man comes to deliver your mail daily, he starts at the first house and goes down the street. Even though he’s still far away and is not at your house yet, you can hear him coming and know that soon, you’ll have your mail. chacun son tour. Your time will come. So don’t be stressed and worried when you don’t see what you’ve been praying about just yet.
God knows what you can and cannot handle and if He gave you what you wanted now, you probably wouldn’t know what to do with it!
1. Be patient.
2. Know how to discern your desires and His desires.
3. Don’t be jealous or envying of what other people have.
Prepare yourself while you’re in waiting.
If you’re waiting for a new job/promotion–work hard so you can get there. Find ways to get better at what you do while you still can. Be the best at it.
If you’re waiting for your mate, prepare yourself first. Get your life together and better yourself, your relationship with God, and everything else around you, so that when the right person comes along, your life will be where it needs to be.
Why would God send you somebody to love when you don’t even know who you are?
Just think about it.
Have a goodnight.
I was having a conversation with a really good friend of mine and we were discussing ENVY and JEALOUSY.
A slice of pizza may look so delicious on the outside, but really nasty once you put it in your mouth.
A car may look beautiful on the outside, but once you drive it, everything falls apart.
Someone may seem to have it all together on the outside, but you don’t know what they’re really going through or what they did to get to where they are.
This is all to say, DON’T ENVY. Because you don’t know what you’re really envying.
Yes, admire, acknowledge what God is doing in someone’s life, but don’t envy.
Be careful what you wish for.
Everything isn’t always as it seems.
“A tranquil heart gives life to the flesh, but ENVY makes the bones rot.”
Goodnight or good morning!
DON’T SETTLE FOR LESS!!!!
God knows the desires of your heart…
no matter how old you are, be patient.
It’s sad when I see people settling for less in relationships. They know they deserve better but they are simply impatient to wait on the best!
Stop looking, and relax! Once you learn how to completely trust God, He will surprise you–usually when we least expect it.
God knows the man/woman you need in your life, but you have to let go and stop trying to do things on your own.
DO you want YOUR best or GOD’S best?
And when that right person comes around, don’t take them for granted. Enjoy every minute, and love to the fullest!
No relationship is perfect. People make mistakes, but once you realize the treasure you truly have in front of you, you’ll never look back again.
I got love like crazy….

8 Things to consider before committing into a SERIOUS relationship. 1. What does God think? Sure, you’ve prayed, but did you watch out for those red flags or you ignored them? 2. Are you equally yoked? Do you have the … Continue reading
This post is primarily for women. Girls. Ladies.
Often, I come across girls who are perhaps single and are complaining about how there are no good men out there. They may say something like, “Yeah, girl, there are no good men out there. Maybe I need to move somewhere else because I haven’t come across any men that were up to my standards…the good ones don’t approach me, but only the ones who are not what I want.”
I realized that maybe the women are the problem. Maybe they are not up to the men’s standards. I think it is very important for women to take care of themselves, first. Many women are too dependent. You have to learn how to be a little bit independent! Get an education, a real job, and learn about responsibilities. Handle your business first, then, maybe the right man will come along.
I’m so tired of hearing women complain about not finding the “one.” Stop trying to find the one, let that right man come to you at the right time—without forcing anything. Sometimes girls have their minds so caught up about finding the right man that they seem to forget that there are other things to life than having someone “special” in their lives. There is a time for everything in life, so enjoy the singleness while you still can. Use that time to better yourself. Get your life together first, maybe then, someone will approach you. Being in a relationship will not make all your worries go away!
Just a thought!
It is the sweetest memory engraved in your heart.
The one that won’t allow you to forget.
What you know you should forget.
Causing you to only remember the sweet adventure.
For love has caused you to forget,
The pain that was once heavy.
The same one that stole your joy.
And made you less of who you truly were.
It can’t get away from you.
It may have escaped your mouth.
But it never escaped your thoughts.
Or your heart…
For it is forever engraved in your heart.
- Engraved in My Heart? Or Not? (weddingbee.com)
A man whose heart is gracious.
Gracious enough to have me
As his lover.
Gracious enough to one day
Take me as his bride.
I blossom of your love
Because it is real.
As real as the heavens above,
As real as the heart beating
Inside of me.
As the sun continues to beam,
This love continues to enrich.
God gave me you
To continue to reach.
Forever shall I love you.
You dig into my heart,
And bring out the part of me
I never knew.
Daily, your love
Continues to renew.
How do you do it?
Cause the butterflies to emerge.
Make my days so vivid.
Teach me how to love.
Fill my heart with delight.
I can dance
To the sound of your voice.
To the hum of your love.
I can write
Of the look in your eyes.
Of the depth of your heart.
Love is a wonderful thing. Loving others might be hard at times…but it is important to…love makes the world go around, so they say. Walking in love is one of the requirements that Apostle Paul mainly talked about in the book of 1st Corinthians… No Love= No Value..
I am mere noise. Needing
grace to silence me.
And if my prophecies, opened
the fragrant bud of mystery
and my faith made mountains bow
and leap, and I did not love
what is the use of me?
if I emptied myself of myself,
and gave all I had to the poor,
and if I yield flesh to fire
willingly, and on my knees
and I did not love
I should be pitied for my poverty.
Love cares for others more.
Love doesn’t ask for
what is not love.
and love gives way.
Love doesn’t think too highly
of itself, nor does love
violate. Love doesn’t insist
that it has its way.
It doesn’t remember sins.
Love doesn’t make you beg.
It just lets it go.
Love loves when truth blossoms
like lilacs and gardenias
swollen with scents
sweet as a mercy.
Trusts Abba always.
Love opens wide eyes
to see the best
and shuts them tight
to what is behind us;
it doesn’t comprehend
