Today I want to share a beautiful message by Pastor and author, T.D. Jakes …….

“If you are looking for someone to be your everything, don’t look around, look up!  God is the only One who can be everything.  By expecting perfection from the flesh, you ask more out of someone else than what you can provide yourself.  To be married is to have a partner:  someone who is not always there or always on target or always anything!  On the other hand, should you ever get in trouble and you don’t know who to look to for help, you can count on your partner.  It is to have someone to curl up against when the world seems cold and life uncertain.  It is having someone who is as concerned as you are when your children are ill.  It is having a hand that keeps checking your forehead when you aren’t well.  To be married is to have someone’s shoulder to cry on as they lower your parent’s body into the ground.  It is wrapping wrinkled knees in warm blankets and giggling without teeth!  To the person you marry you are saying, When my time comes to leave this world and the chill of eternity blows away my birthdays and my future stands still in the night; it’s your face I want to kiss good-bye.  It is your hand I want to squeeze as I slip from time into eternity.  As the curtain closes on all I have attempted to do and be; I want to look into your eyes and see that I mattered.  Not what I looked like.  Not what I did or how much money I made.  Not even how talented I was.  I want to look into the teary eyes of someone who loved me and see; I mattered!”

Today, some of you are facing difficulties in your life or your marriage.  Some may be struggling with children or teens.  Others may be lonely and feel unloved, and some may be facing the illness of a parent who, though once strong and courageous in your eyes, is now coming to the end of their life.  God wants you to know that you matter; you are important; you are loved and treasured, and most importantly, you are a treasure in someone else’s life.

Remember today to let the people you love know that they are important in your eyes.  We are here on this earth to love …… to love God and to love those He places in our lives.  Take your focus off of yourself today and focus on those who need your love.  God’s love and Blessings will come back to you in full!

“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up.”  1 Thessalonians 5:11

“It (love) always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”  1 Corinthians 13:7
