Experiencing True Love Essay

2952 words - 12 pages

INTRODUCTION

There are so many people in the world today who are hurting confused and frustrated all because of their perception of being alone and without love in their life. As a result of this, they have tried everything under the sun to find love, matchmaking companies, dating services, hundreds and hundreds of blind dates only to still find themselves alone and without love.
It is said that if your premise is wrong, your conclusion will be wrong and that where you end up will depend on where you begin. This is especially true as it relates to finding love in our lives. So many people have made painstaking mistakes in love because they had the wrong premise about what love and relationships are all about. They got their cues on love from the world, from family, friends or even nature and as a result of it they allowed people into their fave five who never should have gotten a call to begin with.
Now in order to have a successful relationship, you have to lay the right foundation and that begins with you. I stated to you above that where you end up depends on where you began. You have to begin with you and find out what has been preventing you from having a successful relationship. Often times the one place that we do not look at when something is wrong, is within ourselves. We want to blame everybody else for the problems or failures that we have experienced in relationships. It’s their fault! They do not talk right! They do not act right! I am giving my all; they are not giving me anything! But chances are that if you have had five relationships in the past three years that there may not be something wrong with the other individual but you have to begin to look at you. You have to be honest and look at yourself and say could the problem be me? Could I be the reason that my last five relationships failed? It is not until you are able to be honest can the healing and deliverance process begin.
It is my desire here in this writing that we address these and many other issues so that you can lay a proper foundation and begin to experience what true love is and enjoy successful relationships.


Key No.1 “Get Rid Of Stinking Thinking”

Romans 12:2, “And be not conformed to this world;
but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,
that ye may prove what is that good and acceptable,
and perfect, will of God.”

The Apostle Paul is giving us a diagram of what it is going to take to get rid of stinking thinking. The first thing Paul tells us if we are going to get rid of stinking thinking is that we have to stop conforming to the world. That word Conformed there means to ‘fashion yourself like’. So in other words what Paul is saying, stop fashioning yourself like the world, stop fashioning yourself according to the ways of the world. The reason Paul could make this charge, is that Paul knew that when you fashion yourself like the world you...
