How’s Your Love Life?


dance as thoughWho or what is on top of your love list?  There was a time in my life that I tried to keep everything in balance…even my relationship with God.  Heaven forbid someone think I’ve gone over the edge and call me a Jesus Freak!  Today if someone gave me that title I would simply reply, “Thanks for noticing,” and never give it another thought.   I have learned that my love life is in perfect balance when God is Number One in my life.  Nothing else should take His place.

Lately I’ve been thinking about my life and how I have lived it in the past.  Did I love others as I should?  Did I put stupid things above the important things in my life that should have had first place?  I can’t go back and change the past but moving forward I can strive to do better.  In fact, if I have confessed my past mistakes to God, He doesn’t even remember them.  Why should I?

With my recent diagnosis of breast cancer the saying about you should “Dance as though no one is watching…” has brought a whole new meaning to my life.  Today it reminds me that I have once chance here on earth.  I can enjoy my time dancing through my life and living as though this was heaven; or I can be bound by my fears, shortcomings and lack of balance in my life while dwelling on the things that don’t matter.  If given the option, I think we would all want to live our lives to the fullest.

As we go into February—the traditional month for love—I hope that you will take time to reflect.  Who do you love or should I say what do you love most?  Is Jesus Number One in your life?  If He is not, what do you need to change to put Him there?

Please take a minute and praise God for His goodness in your life.  If there is someone who has touched your life along the way, take the time to thank God for them as well.  I have been reminded once again that no matter the miles, time or circumstances that separate us from those we love; there is NOTHING that can separate us from the Love of God.  He should always be our Number One!

How’s your love life?

Romans 8:38-39  For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,  neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 1:16-17…For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes…

    Lori; Ths is so beautiful. I am working on an article exploring the word ‘goodness’. You are right, we need to praise God for His goodness He places in our hearts. Without God’s placing His goodness in our hearts, we would be ‘faking it’ and everyone would quickly catch on to our phoniness.
