“Until Jesus Christ is the obsession of your heart, you’ll always be looking to mere men to meet needs that only HE can fill. Only when you make Jesus Christ your first LOVE, will you ever be ready for a Love Story that reflects HIS GLORY.”
You can’t love someone if you don’t know them.
You can’t love until you know what love is.
You can’t love someone else if you don’t love yourself first.
You can’t love yourself if you don’t know who created you or why you were created.
Every girl longs to be loved, valued, respected and appreciated by the person they are dating. And there is nothing at all wrong with wanting those things, in fact, they are all three very important and even necessary in a relationship. But first, you have to have a relationship with your Heavenly Father, and know how much HE loves you. You cannot have a relationship with someone you don’t know. Relationships are between two people. And they don’t automatically start off with love, it can develop into love. Which is why it’s so important to have a relationship with Our Heavenly Father and with HIS Son, Jesus, before we can try and have a relationship with another human being.
Because we were all created with the desire and need to love and to be loved, and if we don’t know our identity and our self-worth based on what The Lord says about us, then we will seek for it in our relationships, or in other ways trying to find our self-worth and our value based on what people say about us instead of what The Lord says about us. It is vital to have a relationship with The Lord and know that HIS love is the only perfect love, that only HE can fill that place in our hearts that long to be loved.
The Lord created us to have the need and desire to love and be loved, but not until we realize that the kind of love we need and desire can come from having a relationship with HIM. Which means having a relationship with God, Our Father and realizing how much HE loves us and that our self-worth and identity is based on what HE says about us, not anyone else.
