“What Are You Looking For?”

Have you ever racked your brain when you come across something that makes you say, “Hmm?” Well, one day I was listening to Joyce Meyers, and she stated the following: “Everybody's always looking for a word, here's a word: Walk in love that will keep you busy for the rest of your life”.

 

Now, don’t get it twisted, my Tuesday talks will not be about preaching to you.We will save that for the anointed vessels of God who are called to preach and teach.Yet, her words provided me a Segway into my topic of today:

"What are you looking for?"

Let me answer this question, and I will be transparent with you.I am looking for a WHOLE lot, and I am not afraid to say that I am. The one thing we shouldn’t be looking for is a MAN or WOMAN. I feel that society as a whole have gotten so caught up in the illusion of relationships.I am in a transition period in my life, and I believe most people are. If we are honest with ourselves, whether you believe in a higher power or not, there is something that is governing our lives. My question is, “What Are You Looking For?” I love social media, tweeting, and posting little daily messages that come to my mind.Often times, I never know how they will be perceived.I come into conflict because I say I do not care, but that is not the truth. This is my first point that I want people understand. We do care how people perceive us, and it is a lie from the pit of Hell if you say you do not. No person is an island, and we do seek the affirmations from our peers.While having self-love and high self-esteem are important, we must come to the honest truth that we do care what others think. Therefore, the main goal I strive to attain is the TRUTH.

 

It’s easy to tell a LIE.I know we believe it isn’t, but it’s clear, you are lying to yourself when you say you do not care what others think.That’s why, I believe, most relationships fail.We are living in a false reality, when you’re in a relationship with someone, and not care about their opinion of you.How selfish can you be?Everything is not about you.In order to strive in healthy relationships, one must first come to terms with who they are, and how they can RELATE to others. This pertains to all relationships, (i.e. dating, marriage, friendships, family). Before I ramble, let me get back on track.What Are You Looking For? It comes a point where you must learn from your past, live in the present, and plan for your future. If you are not doing these things, what are you doing?

 

I have so much to say.What I sought to accomplish, is a planting of a seed to get us talking and discussing. I think we learn best when we have intelligent opinion dialogue. So the question remains, What Are You Looking For?
