The Lord has really opened my eyes lately. I honestly do not even know where to begin due to the various subjects that have been on my heart. So instead, let us talk about what is on His heart.
This is not a very formal blog. Let me just clarify that. My goal in this blog is to help others get a better understanding based on scriptural presentation, as well as, my own thought processes, experiences, and what the Lord has shown or taught me through it. My heart is heavy because God has revealed some things to me in a new light.
I believe it grieves God to see people who put all their love, trust, happiness, and so on, in another person. It is basically like you look to that person to fulfill the position that rightfully belongs to God. God is a jealous God… meaning he wants all of you. He doesn’t just want weekends when you can spare some time or Wednesday nights when it is “church night.” Immediately I think of people who are in relationships. First off, I am not against relationships. I completely believe relationships can be very good and edifying! However, I also believe that if not treated honorably, they can lead to devastation and destruction.
I have seen it happen. You become so consumed in a person that before you know it, they are affecting your attitude and emotions. My opinion is this: We are created by God and for God. We are born with this void. Let’s say the void is like a key hole. Obviously you want to find the right key to fit into the void within you to make you feel complete, or whole. We go through life trying to fill the void with all these different “keys” in hopes of unlocking who we really are, ultimately filling the void within us. If we are created by God and for God, then the key to our void is… God! He can unlock our hearts to this God-given identity. This identity found in Christ would allow us to feel whole and at peace. The sad part is this: Some people never realize how simple the solution is.
Abstinence is such a rare thing nowadays. I have heard the saying, “Girls give sex to get love, while boys will give love to get sex.” I believe girls are looking for more than just love. They want to feel like they are wanted. The are using these boys as a “key” to try to fill the void within their hearts. The void in the human heart is God-shaped. No earthly thing can fill it, people cannot fill it, nothing but our Heavenly Father can.
God is the ultimate deliverer. He delivers an everlasting joy, peace, identity, and so much more if you will let Him. He fills that void that we work so hard to achieve on our own or through something/someone else.
God, cleanse us of anything that breaks your heart. Father, you deserve all of us. Forgive us for looking towards success or relationships to fill that inner void within us that only you can. Lord, shed light in any area that you want us to change; whether it is in our relationships, mindsets, or just focal points that don’t look toward you, so be it. In Jesus’s name, Amen.
