I bless the Lord Jesus Christ for each of you in the ministry. Thank you for your support and reading my daily messages. I pray that you have been released from at least some of the issues that have kept you spiritually bound.
Do you remember collecting flowers and you would pick off each pedal saying, "He loves me, he love me not"? If the pedal did not land on "he loves me", you would pick another flower and start all over again until you landed on "he loves me"
Now, it's time for the message, it might be a little brutal, but I pray that you are helped in some kind of way. Some of you are treating your relationships just like those flower pedal. You throw one man and pick up another one right away, ending up with the same results. You just continue picking the wrong man. At some point in your mind you think to yourself, "Why do I keep picking the wrong man?" It seems like you have a sign on your forehead that says, "You can treat me like crap". As soon as you are rid of one man, you never give yourself time to get over that relationship before you begin another one. That is your first mistake. If you have been in a relationship with a man that you were in love with, you need to take some time for yourself to heal. But you don't do that, you are sucked right away into another relationship that will ultimately fell.
Some of you are in abusive relationships and you know it but you will not acknowledge it to yourself. You make excuses as to why that man of yours acts the way that he does. If you get out of that type of relationship, you need to give yourself time for your heart to heal. If you continue to stay in that relationship then you are setting yourself up for a life of long disappointments. Any man that is abusive will never change. I know. You cannot change that man. Some women get involved with the wrong type of man, knowingly, but the thought in your mind is that you will somehow change his ways, because you think he's cute.
Some of you are in relationships with a man that stays away from home for a considerable amount of days and you allow this type of behavior to continue. You think that if you do this, or that, he will stop going out altogether. You are sadly mistaken. The more bad behavior that you put up with the more you will get. If you keep doing what you are doing, you will keep getting what you are getting. You main reason for allowing that man to stick around is that you don't want to be lonely or you are so in love. If you are in love with that type of behavior, then I must say, you don't think too much about yourself.
You are the most important person in your life. You are a woman of value and you are allowing someone else to pull your strings. You need to be jealous over yourself, not over some man. If you need to check emails and phone messages, you are in the wrong relationship. You need to believe that God wants the best for you. The Lord does not want you to be a victim of any man. God is a jealous God, and you are putting that man before Him. How? Because you are allowing that relationship to overcome your relationship with God. The bible says, "put no man before God".
Again, love is an action word. If you are in a relationship with a man that is not showing you, by his actions that he loves you, then you are selling yourself short. You are accepting less than you deserve. I realize that it is sometimes hard to leave a relationship that you have been in for a long time, but think on the fact that you have been mistreat that long. Flowers, candy and dinners don't constitute love, especially if after all that he doesn't come home or is abusive when he is at home. You know that if a man doesn't come home all night he is sleeping somewhere no matter what story he comes up with, you just buy into the story. If you have to check emails, facebook or phones then you are in the wrong relationship, "he loves you not".
There is only one relationship that you can be in and be sure that "he love you" without picking pedals is a relationship with Jesus Christ. Get yourself in a relationship with God, he will never fail.
