TITLE: “TO LET HIM LOVE YOU IS GOING HOME”

To let Him love you is going Home. Let’s go to:

Psalms 12:2 “They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: [with] flattering lips [and] with a double heart do they speak.”

speak (Strong’s 1696) to arrange (of words), speak, appoint, command or promise;
vanity (Strong’s 7723) desolating, evil (as destructive), ruin, guile, idolatry (as false), vain or vanity;
every one (Strong’s 376) a man, individual person or each;
neighbor (Strong’s 143) associate, brother, friend or neighbor; (from Strong’s 7462) to tend a flock, pasture it, to rule or associate (as a friend);
flattering (Strong’s 2513) smoothness (of the tongue), seductiveness, flattery, portion or allotment or slippery place;
lips (Strong’s 8193) language, lip, talk or vain words;
double (Strong’s 3718) duplicate (double) repeat or double;
heart (Strong’s 3820) the feelings, the will or intellect;
speak (Strong’s 1696) to speak in a destructive sense or to destroy.

So realize that things of this world are empty and will not last. Look closely at who you are spend time with and how you spend your time. If it is not something that makes you feel good or lift you up to Him, than double check yourself. Do things that will only help your walk out better with Him especially if something is pulling you from Him. Know your limits for negativity and pull yourself away from negative people and situations when you can so you can stay focused.

By keeping in the Word you have that natural Covering and Basis from dear God and the more you get into it, He will help you out. You first have to help yourself by making that effort to know Him better. Remember just like any relationship, you will get more out of it if you put more time and effort into getting to know dear God and what He expects from you if you spend time in the Word.

Talk with Him always beginning with thanking Him for all the great things He is doing for you and those that you love. Thank Him for those friends and family members that are there for you. Ask that He use you even more in His Plan in areas that can help others out.

Finally, to let Him love is going Home. So visit Home more and have those heart to heart talks with Him. You are very special to Him and He loves you so much.


Thanks dear God for Your Love and Your Faith,

Mindy
at Your service

Melinda the word search is probably very helpful as a research tool for writing but I'm not sure how effective it is in the actual article. I would rather read about the truths that you have discovered from your perspective than the dictionary descriptions. Your writing style flows and you draw some great applications but for me at least the word search opening makes it feel choppy. I guess what I'm trying to say is don't be afraid to use the teaching/writing gift God has blessed you with.

Mindy, in one way it was rather hard to read through the definition process you were using, but in another way it made sense in that if I

sorry, I clicked to soon, let's finish the thought, if I understand maybe the effect that you were going for is even after all of that, it doesn't really matter anyway, because they really won't last. You have to look closely at yourself to get there? You can't use words. Did I get it? I do very much like your comment though that you have look closely at yourself, sometimes that's the hardest part! Thanks for sharing. You made me think alittle on this one..

Melinda, I have to admit that although I enjoy reading what you have to say, I always jump over the vocabulary lesson to get to your thoughts.

Yes, we have to realize that things of the world are empty and won't last, but the love of Jesus lasts throughout into eternity. Thanks for sharing.
