IAMFORGIVEN

Singleness, the unbearable sin.

I have been lucky enough to experience 37 years on this earth. Most of that life has been single.  When I was 19, I fully committed my life to Jesus and decided that I wasn’t going to waste my time pouring into something that was only going to gratify my sexual desires.  I wanted something…

He waited 7 plus 7 years for marriage

  Over the last couple months I have been learning more and more about what real love is and how to apply it. So looking through the bible I have found scripture that have given me a better understanding of the Love of God.   1 Corinthians 13 has a list of these characteristics that show…

He didn’t get it for me

As I was sitting in the coffee shop I couldn’t help but over hear a conversation that really just made me cringe. Sometimes when I am sitting there, there will be some trigger words that will always catch my attention. This time it was the word “Church”. So oh, they must be Christians was my…

Love keeps no records of wrongs

I don’t know if you have ever experienced this, but I had a friend in the past that did me dirty!  So bad that it seemed his only goal was to destroy me and everything that I owned.  He wrecked my house and constantly lied to my face, all while destroying many other relationships and…

Love is not Arrogant or Rude

I used to have this friend that thought he was God’s gift to the world.  In his head, he thought that everything that he did was equivalent to perfection.  If he walked down the street, he thought every girl was drooling over him and wanted to have his babies.  When he would talk about sports,…

Love is Kind

Can you imagine a world where everybody was kind to one another?  Now for me growing up, that wasn’t a common word that I heard in the vocabulary of others.  Every once in a while I would hear somebody say it but didn’t know the true meaning of kindness.  So if you are anything like…

Love is Patient

There is beauty in patience, because it requires you to wait on the Lord.  We come from a society that is instant gratification based.  If something takes longer then our patience will allow, we move on to something else.  That same societal norm has also infiltrated our relationships.  I am not just talking about the…

Wait for the Lord

When things don’t go the way we want them to go, the first thing that we do is anything that we can to manipulate the situation into what we want it to be. For example you meet this girl/guy and in your mind they are really into you.. but in reality they have no interest. …
