THE HOLIDAY LOVE LIE

The Holiday Love Lie is heard in romantic songs and seen on romantic movies. The Holiday Love Lie makes you feel that you are the only person on the planet without a mate.  This same “only person left” lie was used centuries earlier on Elijah when he was feeling depressed, lonely and suicidal. His cry in 1 Kings 19: 14 was "I, even I only, am left.”

Elijah soon found out what a big lie he had believed because there were 7,000 men and women who had not worshipped Baal, a false god!

Just as Elijah believed he could not make it through another day, the Holiday Love Lie wants you to think that you can’t make it through another day (or at least this holiday season) being single. The truth is that you can do all things with Christ (Philippians 4:13). You are not a weak little thing. You are the beautiful and strong daughter of the King.

Finally, like Elijah, the Holiday Love Lie wants you to think that your desire for marriage has been forgotten by your Heavenly Father.  Let’s think about this for a minute. Do you think a Father who knows the number of hairs on your head (Matthew 10:30) or knew you before you were born (Jeremiah 1:5) could forget anything about you?      

Be encouraged this holiday season because whatever lies may approach you, recognize it for what it is: a lie which originated from a defeated enemy, the father of lies (John 8:44).

Enjoy this holiday season because the BEST IS YET TO COME!

  1. My dear sister..what a fresh breath of air you are. Always encouraging and inspiring. Yes, the Lord has a plan for a good future for all of His children.
    I have a daughter who is 40yrs old. She has been married twice to two abusive men. Now on her own the going is still tough. I am praying for her to meet a man of God. A man who is compatible with her. One who will love her children. One who will care for her.And one who will be a worker, not one she has to support.
    My son who is 44 yrs old lives alone. He met an American Christian online and they get on well. (so Far) I also pray a Christian mate for him. He is a man with a tender gentle heart who has been used by many for his goodness. May the Lord bring my children happiness and peace this year. My youngest 33 yr old son, also wants to meet the right person.. Am I asking too much.
    As a mother, I desire to see them all settled and happy. Lord make it soon please. In Jesus name Amen.

  2. Crystal Mary, thanks for your comments and for sharing. Your desire for godly mates for your children and one that will love your grandchildren touches my heart. I'm praying with you. You are not asking too much. Ephesians 3:20 clearly says, (American King James Version)
    "Now to him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think..."
