Finding Our Completeness
Ephesians 3: 18-19
And may you have the power to understand as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high and how deep His love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be MADE COMPLETE with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.
We find our real value in Jesus!! We all seek to be loved and cared for and want that true Valentine in our lives!! Let the Lord be your ultimate Valentine! I believe Jesus wants to be the Love of our Life!!
I have to tell you that Jesus truly is the LOVE of my Life and I have found myself complete in Him, and by doing that, I have fallen so in love with my husband all over again!! You may read this and laugh at it, but it is true.
I can remember the first years of our marriage was rough for me and my husband because I was trying to find my value in that. If we would fight, then all the sudden I would feel unloved and relate it to how others even felt about me. I dealt with low self-esteem and guilt all the time and that played a big part in how I even valued myself. I believe I carried a lot of baggage into my marriage from my childhood though from my parents divorce. That played a huge part in how I valued myself as well. So, not realizing who Jesus seen me as caused me to feel unloved and then it would just cause problems even when there really wasn't a problem. I just was searching for that love and acceptance all the time. And I believe we all want to be accepted and loved and we find ourselves seeking out relationships or seeking other things like drugs and alcohol to help cope with what we may be dealing with. My prayer is you don't turn to those things to try to find your value or acceptance!! Jesus said you were worth it and paid a high price for you and for me. We have to realize who Jesus says that we are and truly how much He does love us. It took me sometime to really realize this, and getting in my Word and daily seeking the face of God! But I found out the more I searched for Him, the more I found Him and the more I found Him the more I loved Him and the more I wanted to be in His presence. The more I was in His presence, the more He was teaching me about who I was in Him and how He loved me. He really is jealous for me, but not just for me, He is for you also!
Realize you are COMPLETE in JESUS and HE wants to love on you. Me and my husband have the best relationship now and I love being married to him and our 3 children and our life God has given us together. Have we got our struggles? OH YEAH!!! Do I want to kill him sometimes? OH YEAH!! LOL!! Thank the Lord for His mercies that are new every morning! Haha! I am a very blessed woman and don't ever want to take it for granted. Know who you are and count your blessings today!!
