Love and Relationships- Part 3 - What's in your way?

Firstly I would like to say Hellooo Girls AND GUYS!!! Yes this blog is called Bible for Women but i understand that men of God read this blog too...
So Welcome! :-) 
I hope you ALL enjoy reading my writings! I enjoy writing them!
I have new views from Russia and Venezuela! This is really overwhelming... Bible For Women - Worldwide!!!! 

A huge thank you for the recent support and love I have been shown in my previous blog- Love and Relationships Part 2 - Marriage, I included a lot of your views and opinions on the blog and I also hope you checked Will Gardner out! Great Guy of God! Amazing website and Video Blog on YouTube.... 

Anyway Part 3! the final segment of this series... 'What's in your way?'

What's in your way to becoming closer to God?
What's in your way to be nice to strangers?
What's in your way to believe that Christ died for you?
What's in your way to pray regularly?
What's in your way to praise Christ?

C'mon Guys and Girls! What's in your way? Today I want you all to think about these, what's the problem and the blockages in your life stopping you from getting closer to Christ!
or what's in your way from actually beginning a relationship with Christ.

I have one answer for you..... THE DEVIL!!!!

The devil can plant one single seed of doubt which can flourish into a horrible thought or thoughts.
 The devil can say to you...'God isn't real, there isn't any proof'

God can say to you...' trust me, i am your father and i will protect you'.

But sadly a lot of people don't believe anyone can love them, maybe because of there imperfections and there insecurities.
'why would anyone die for me? why would they love me forever? 

The answer is because he made you and you are beautiful inside and out! 

God loves you all so much he sent his one and only son to die for your sins on the cross... Imagine the pain Jesus went through so you could be saved! 
He died for your sins! And we need to believe this! We need to trust in the Lord! And do not doubt a word he has said to you through his word! 

God knows you and has known you since conception and he loves you so dear! We are blessed with a redeeming God who saves the imperfect! 

So Girls AND GUYS today! Look in the mirror and say out loud 
'' I am beautiful inside and out and God loves me for me'' 

Than you for reading this blog and remember don't let anything stand in your way of being in a relationship with Christ! 

Have a beautiful day my lovelies! 
Love Jessica Louise
God Bless

Love and Relationships- Part 2 - Marriage

Hello Beautiful Girls of God
Thank for continuing to read these blog series I really enjoy writing them and also if you have anything to ask me just message me on twitter @BibleBlogWomen 
I would love to know what you think of the blog and my questions you have. 

Right on with today's topic! Marriage. What do you think marriage represents? As a women or a man what's your views on marriage? Is marriage necessary if your somebody's partner? What do you think about divorce? 

I personally believe marriage is a beautiful journey with the person you love the most and want to share your Christ influenced life with. It should be a magical journey and it should start a beautiful life between 2 people and then start a family. 
The steps should be marriage then children. Not the other way round! 

Genesis 2:22-24

Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.  The man said, "This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called 'woman, ' for she was taken out of man."  For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.

I think this is beautiful, two people become one, women were created from men, what a weird but lovely sentiment! Women were created from Men! And when a women and man join they become one. 

Proverbs 12:4

A wife of noble character is her husband's crown, but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones.

Proverbs 19:14

Houses and wealth are inherited from parents, but a prudent wife is from the LORD.

The Lord knows who you are supposed to be paired with, just take a seat back and wait for gods perfect timing for him to welcome your partner into your life, don't think you know best because you don't and you never know whats best for you, let God guide you to the place you were always meant to be.

Colossians 3:18-19

Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.  Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.

I recently asked a few Twitter and Facebook followers what marriage meant to them and marrying a non christian and also divorce etc.. These are just a few of the responses I received...

@Isikablam - from Turkey-  If you want to be right, you cannot be married. Love your neighbor as yourself. Your spouse is your neighbor. And Also there is a bad compromise and a good compromise- in order for your marriage to work there needs to be a good compromise.

@courtknee_12 - Marriage to me is something you have to pray diligently for. The bible says to equally yoked, so pray that God will send you a spouse- 2 Corinthians 6:14.

@007Groenie - from Pretoria, South Africa - A covenant of love is what I make to you. giving myself to what Christ holds true. I give a love that Christ first gave to me. So you can become all that God intends you to be.

@openupoureyes - from the Philippines - Marriage for me is composed of two people who love each other so much, they are not perfect but their love for each other should be the one binding their love besides imperfections. Specially is they desire a LOVELY marriage, God should be the center of it!!! 

@Miss_Baptist - from Oklahoma - Marriage is a sacred thing that connects two people through God. God loves to see his children find their spouse and marry in the will of god. But when you marry out of the will of God it can cause divorce and/or confusion in your children. The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? What that verse is saying is a saved person should not marry a lost person. Sure, you may think its 'true love' but if God is not in it, the marriage will not last. In Psalm 127:1 it says, Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it: expect the Lord keep the city, the watchman wakeeth but in vain. Say for a second, that you marry unbeliever. You want to go to church on Sunday morning. But on the other hand, your spouse does not. Your children are torn between staying at home watching the television with daddy, and going to church with mommy. In Ephesians 5:25 it says, Husbands love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it. What that verse is saying is, Christ loved the church so much that he gave himself for it. You deserve a husband that loves you so much he would do the same for you and much much more. 

@Growing_In_God - I think that a strong marriage is based around God, trust, respect, and love. Without any of those things, it will not be as strong, healthy, and long- lasting.

Karen McManus - from Hartlepool - I believe marriage is about Love, trust and a deep relationship between a Man & Woman who want to spend the rest of their lives together building their lives with God in the center of it.
It says in the Bible about a Christian marrying a non Christian
1 Corinthians 7,12 
Now, I will speak to the rest of you, though I do not have a direct command from the Lord. If a Christian man has a wife who is not a believer and she is willing to continue living with him, he must not leave her. And if a Christian woman has a husband who is not a believer and he is willing to continue living with her, she must not leave him. For the Christian wife brings holiness to her marriage, and the Christian husband brings holiness to his marriage. Otherwise, your children would not be holy, but now they are holy.  (But if the husband or wife who isn’t a believer insists on leaving, let them go. In such cases the Christian husband or wife is no longer bound to the other, for God has called you to live in peace.)  Don’t you wives realize that your husbands might be saved because of you? And don’t you husbands realize that your wives might be saved because of you?

@tanyaselenaband - Russia and Germany - Well, marriage is something we should appreciate, because it is one of those things which were created by our great God and God loves marriage. So we should too! This journey is not easy, but marriage is a way of giving everything and yourself to your chosen one without wanting anything back!

@godstheultimate - I think that we should only marry someone who we know in our hearts we are meant to spend our lives with. I think that the best quality spouses can have is to worship the Lord together. 

What amazing feedback I have been given in just one day!
Thank you all for your responses and giving your opinions today it has meant a lot to me. Spreading Gods Word!!! 

Recently I have made a new friend, his name is Will and he has an awesome Video Blog on Youtube or check his website out on Weebly. He has some amazing views and he's from Kentucky! 
He shared his views on marriage too! check this out....

 What is happening to marriage? Divorce rates are climbing higher and higher, and fewer and fewer people express interest in even getting married. What do we attribute this trend to? Marriage is a sacred and spiritual bond between a man and a woman. If we reference Genesis 2, Adam says of Eve, “This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh” (Genesis 2:23-24, ESV). Marriage is a bond that quite literally unites husband and wife together in a bond that reaches back to the first couple. So what has caused society to trample on the beauty of marriage? I think it can be attributed to the growing influence Satan has on the idolization of things other than God. Pop culture is a perfect catalyst for doubting the Bible and placing money, sex, and fame above the gospel. Marriage is no longer a sacred bond between man and woman with God at the center. Marriage has become a game of finding someone for a variety of reasons apart from God’s will. Many of the same reasons listed above; money, sex, and fame. However, I think it goes even deeper than that! Even marriages that were founded on solid ground are failing! Apart from sexual immorality, there is no reason for divorce to occur (Matthew 19:9, ESV)… Christ, when placed at the center of any difficult situation can comfort and repair it. God at the center of a failing marriage can heal it. “I sought the Lord, and he answered me, and delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed. This poor man, cried, and the Lord heard him and saved him out of all his troubles” (Psalm 34:4-6, ESV). As if God being absent in society wasn’t already harmful enough, God has also been removed from marriage as a whole, new and old alike. If He hadn’t, I wouldn’t have to write this. Whether you are married or are single, always strive harder each day to establish God’s will within your life, through the gospel and through prayer. Trust in Him, and you will be blessed. For, “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night” (Psalm 1:1-2, ESV).

GEEZ!!! Girls and Guys check this guy out! He was made to preach and spread the word of God!!! 

Here's an introduction to his 'A College Faith' Video Blog and Website....

To be honest, I’m quite tired of hearing loud voices and megaphone users screaming in my ear about the hasty need to repent of my sins. I can’t really do that anymore. Why do so many people and churches feel that somehow they are just more entitled, righteous and perfect than others? The Bible has a lot to offer… it has everything to offer! Yet somehow it seems that a large population of Christians missed that day of Sunday school when the lesson was discussing love, humility, compassion, and selflessness; but especially, humility. We are all sinners. There just isn’t a way around that, whether we are baptized, redeemed, or whatever, our nature remains the same. Jesus Christ died out of love to forgive us of our past and future sin. Understanding our imperfect nature as human beings is really the first step towards a deeper understanding of the gospel and how to live it. Now, I don’t care if you are Christian, Atheist, Hindu, or Muslim, you are welcome on my website any time. My goal in life is to profess the truth of the gospel in a loving and compassionate way, answering all questions and concerns people might have, and helping to guide those of faith! 

So that concludes Part 2- Marriage of the blog series Love and Relationships.. keep tuned for the third and final part of the blog....Love and Relationships Part 3: What's in your way?

So Super thanks for reading this super long blog, I hope you enjoyed reading others opinions on marriage etc.

Thank you God Bless

Love and Relationships- Part 1 - Live and Connect

Part One - Live and Connect 

Hello Girls! 

I want to first start off by saying I hope you are all health and happy. 
This blog on 'Love and Relationships' is really all about How we need to realise everything about God is LOVE. And everything about relationships should start off with a relationship with God. You need to tell him you belong to him and ask him to lead you to the cross. Ask him for a relationship or a stronger connection to him. Out of past experiences a relationship with God is simply difficult! 

Simple because you should love your creator but difficult because of the devil and others coming into your mind and filling your head with doubts.
Being a Christ follower simply means not doubting and trusting in God.
The bible mentions Trust over 180 times! 

I believe that love is god, I know Christ is the creator and created everything including feelings, your feelings towards things and beings, therefore I believe that when you meet your 'soul mate' and you feel love and joy and commitment I believe that is God too. God knows who you are destined for and he will make that clear by feelings. 

Set fire to the life that you know and start a fire in your heart by starting a relationship with god in it. You firstly need to have a relationship with God before he can show you who you are destined to be with. It might be someone you don't like, or someone you've just met or it could be an old friend who god wants you to be with, either way, his plan is final, your story is wrote on his heart and its unbreakable, if you go off the path he will bring you back on the right path and guide you to where you should be. 

Activity: Pray today about a relationship with god, a fuller connection, make God your one true love and show him that you are grateful for him giving you life, and everything that usually slips your mind, and things you take for granted, be more thankful and he will give you more snippets of your story. He will show you the path and the way forward if you show him that you want a relationship with him.

A relationship with God and showing God that you love him is super important, you have the chance to love an amazing god and be loved in return. How amazing is it that, God created Earth for us, he had us in mind before he even created the planet, how amazing is that?!?! Like seriously WOAH! 

Today I want you all to tell yourselves you are a child of God, you are loved incredible amounts and you are never alone. You are so important God thought about you before he even made your world! 
Thank Him! Thank him for everything! 

Thank you for reading this blog! 
I pray that all of you lovely girls of God receive a stronger relationship with God, and a fuller life because of that. 
Love you Lots 
God Bless
