True Love-Part 1

Intro to the Series:
Recently, I was inspired by another post which captures the idea of movie love and the possibility of true love in life. But I, being the amazing creative writer that I am, decided to go farther and write a few posts on the topic. {mainly because if is far to difficult to write about in one post.} So, today I am going to be giving the answers to three different questions I asked my friends a couple days ago and guess what???? Three people responded, so I have written their answers in random order and have posted the questions below. For the next post I have decided to dig into 1 John 4 and then the post after that 1 Cor 13.  So, you've got three nice lengthy posts coming up, so sit back and gear up for the ride!

1. If such a thing as true love exists.
2. If true love can be shared
3. If perfect love is true love.

But, before I do all of this, here's what a few of my friends said:

 In response to question 1, here is what they said:

 "I think that true love is someone that you love and would do anything for, sometimes even though you love them, you don't even like them. "

"True love is where a married couple are happy together."

"True love is a love by the guidelines of 1 Cor 13."

In response to question 2, here is what they said:

"True love can be shared."

"No, but a couple in true love can share happiness, and love to others, because love is not just a couple in love."

" Yes, true love can be shared."

In response to question 3, here is what they said:

" Yes, I think."

" I don't know. I would say yes though, because if you are in true love, you think it is perfect love."

"Perfect love is the love of Christ, which is true love."

 Let's Review the Questions again:
1. If such a thing as true love exists.
2. If true love can be shared
3. If perfect love is true love.

So, what did y'all think? If you have a different answer to any of these questions, leave a comment in the comment box! Thanks!

In a few days, I'll follow up with the next part.

Forever Reign

Devo Time:

 I have decided to run through 25 lies throughout the next couple of months and go through the book: Lies Young Women Believe. 

 Lie #1-God is NOT enough

My heart will sing
no other Name
Jesus, Jesus

Oh, I’m running to Your arms
I’m running to Your arms
The riches of Your love
Will always be enough
Nothing compares to Your embrace
Light of the world forever reign

I hope that drove you to tears. It always makes me cry.
What do you want more of, that you do not have? Would that be enough?
think through the examples in your life.....  

I have a problem with this song. I love the song, love the lyrics,  but at some point it hits me. How many times has my heart sung to something else than Jesus Christ? Almost constantly, I am wanting something that is not what I need or what God knows I need. This is denial that God is in control. In my mind, I know that God is sovereign and good. In my heart I distrust this.  I have decided to run back to God today as I fight to run back to Him.

God Is Enough.

Song review "Call me maybe"

This song is played everywhere in mankind. for instance, the USA swimmers made a video which I have seen played on NBC. The lyrics to the original are kind of strange, but at the same time, this is a worldly song. I don't really like the original  so I found a version by cookie monster that I love. It talks about cookies!

Here it is!

This is a short post, but my next one will be longer!
