the greatest love story of all time!

After going home and having one of the best weekends of my life celebrating my best friends getting married,I am in 'super sappy' mode (yeah, even more than normal!) These faucet eyes of mine just keep on leaking!  I love love and I love my friends so I suppose these are good things to cry happy tears over. ANYWAYS,weddings always get me in that lovey dovey-ooshey gooshey-happily ever after mood! BUT if you are single its easy to quickly turn that excited feeling into a pity party. Pity party for one (no thanks!) and I found myself doing just that on my plane ride back. The clouds and sun set were pretty amazing during my flight when it dawned on me....God gives us reminders of His love for us in so many ways and I am already part of one of the greatest love stories of all time--and so are YOU- the love story between us and God. And that's not a fleeting love-that's not a dressed up for special occasion-looks good in pictures love. That's an every minute of every day of your entire life love!

The greatest love story of all time---and you are already playing a leading role in it!

Hope you have a love filled day and are priceless to God

Hi Lauren,

My childhood was not fun, and I was teased mercilessly every day and crying myself to sleep every night.  I never thought I would find anyone who would love me.  I felt unworthy of anyone.  God brought a wonderful man into my life!  After dating almost 10 years, we married.  Our 18th anniversary is next month.  I had to trust in God's plan for my life.  

You need to do that, too.  Sometimes it seems like something special isn't going to happen.  But it will.  It just has to be in His time.  

When we wanted to have kids, I couldn't conceive.  Even with doctors, and special medicines, it didn't happen.  When we gave up with the doctors and left it in God's hands, it happened!  Twice!  We have a son who will celebrate his 11th birthday later this month, and a beautiful Thanksgiving daughter who will be 8 this year.  

In His time...

Jesus showed me that the way to participate every moment of every day in REAL communion/love is to pray continously. TO talk to Jesus about everything you feel, see, hear and most importantly THINK all day long everyday. For the more you exercise the communication muscle the more barriers to hearing and seeing God are removed!

The way to experience deep real love with Jesus is to talk with Him by never ending your prayer. Just like any new relationship at first you will not hear much and you may sometimes wonder if He hears you. This is because your love is brand new and you have not yet gained your spiritual ears. What are spiritual ears? Ears for hearing the spirit world, part of a separate set of senses that where lost by humans in the fall experienced by Adam and Eve. After you gain ears you will get spirit eyes, then smell and then touch. These senses are a glorious gigging that will take years to evolve! Just keep praying about everything!!!!

You're not alone.  I sometimes think God only cares for certain people.  I'm 48 going on 49 next month and still waiting for that special someone.
Sometimes, I wonder what's wrong with me?  Why can't I have someone to love me for who I am and for what I am?  I don't think I'm a bad person at all.  I tried to live my life doing what's good and right.  I have male friends, but am never good enough to be a girlfriend.  Always "JUST FRIENDS"... I hate it!!!
My best friend is a man and I had fallen in love with him.  He's the best friend ever BUT having this feelings for him, changes everything.  He just recently met the girl of his dreams.  I wish it was me that he fell in love with...  It hurts so bad to hear him talked about her and to know that he's just head over hills for this woman.  I know God don't want us to hate others but everytime he talks about her, my stomach turns and makes me sick.  I hate her and I wish she would find someone else and that she will not be interested in my bestfriend.  I want to keep him for myself.  I just pray that he will learn to love me and fall in love with me.  I know its bad but that's how I feel.  I need help!  Since this relationship with this woman, I feel like my world stops.  Sometimes, I wish I'm dead and don't have to feel this pain.  Life is not fair.  I HATE IT!!!

Men often have a problem with setting up a ideal woman in their minds, and the ideal is a certain look, shape, and face. Any woman who does not fall into their "ideal" is cast aside like used toilet paper. This is because boys are taught to see women as less than human, mere objects to possess. They are basically shopping for the model that looks the best.

Women can be shallow as well, but they look for a man with money, often casting aside their best friend because he is not loaded.

Only Jesus can teach us to see people for who is inside, because first He teaches us to love Him, then He teaches us to love ourselves, then and ONLY then can we love others.

Focus your time on getting to know Jesus, pray without stopping about anything that crosses your mind. Jesus will fix you up and bring you a like minded friend who will value, love and cherish you for who you are!

When you pray without stopping you engage the Kingdom of Heaven and the Spirit, meaning you have God at your back making life fair for YOU!

Steven M Dodd,

Thank you very much for your kind words and respond to my comment.

I do pray 24/7 and also have my best friend included in my prayers as well.

It says on Matthew 7:7 "Ask and you will be given what you ask for. Seek and you will find. Knock and the door will opened.

Is that mean when I pray for my best friend to learn to fall in love with me (24/7 none stop) God will answer my prayers?  

It says on Matthew 21:21-22 Then Jesus told them, "Truly, if you have faith and don't doubt, you can do things like this and much more.  You can even say to this Mount of Olives, 'Move over in the ocean,' and it will. 22) You can get anything - anything you ask for in prayer - if you believe".

Is that mean, all I have to do is have faith and believe and my prayers will be answered?

It also says in Matthew 6:34 So don't be anxious about tomorrow. God will take care of your tomorrow too. Live one day at a time.

This bible verses are very encouraging. But part of me says give up and move on... the other part says, have faith, hope and believe in what the bible says and my prayers will be answered.

What do I do?  I'm new at this... I just recently started going to church and still very much confused.  I'm still searching for answers.  Sometimes I feel like God is just too busy to hear my problems. Or maybe, I don't know how to pray those fancy prayers that's why... it's not being answered.

Anyway, Thanks again Steven M. Dodd have a good night and take care.

Well Maire...

SUCH great questions! And oh the one about whether prayer can make you friend love you:

First...remember that God's Will=Happiness. This is what "seek ye first the Kingdom of Heaven" means, that you pray and submit the desires of your heart to God. Submit means "lay it on Jesus's lap and forget about it".

The beauty of submitting is it frees up the Holy Spirit to go to work and relieves us of the stress of worrying. You cannot make you friend love you! In order for him to love you God must change his heart, and he would have to be a Lover of Jesus for that change to take place.

Submitting allows to continue to have hope and faith and at the same time allows you to move on! I see that in fact what you are learning about God, all your growth and the peace that will be on you may very well be what brings your friend into deep relationship with Jesus! And then with you!

Steven M Dodd,
I want to get my life straight with God but don't know how?  Like I said, I just recently started going to church and searching for answers.
I heard from one of the Sunday service before communion the Pastor says, before we can come to Christ we must leave our offerings and make things right with others then come back and offer ourselves to God.  I'm kind of confused about this... if that's the case, I will never be able to offer myself to God because I came from a very disfunctional family and there's no way I can patch things up with them all.
Is that mean I'm doomed?  I will never be able to get myself right with God because I can't fix the problem with my family?
By the way, are you a minister or you're just one of the readers on this website?  Are you a christian?  Do you have a good relationship with God?  How do you do it?
I have so many questions but don't really know who to asked.  I can communicate online with a total stranger but too shy to talk to anybody in person.
Well, except with my bestfriend... we can talk about anything and I'm cool with that.  But I can't make myself open up with anybody in person.
Thanks for your time.
