Dealing with you

Proverbs 23:7 (AMP) For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. This is a message that I have given time and time again and it always does our spirit GOOD to hear it again so here goes.
There is this song by a older group called the The Emotions and the song is called What do the Lonely Do At Christmas. The truth of the matter is that it the song is sung beautifully with really touching lyrics BUT..
the lyrics are so SAD. I brought this up because so many people this holiday season feel this same way. The think that without the one they love there is no need for Christmas. The real reason for Christmas is to celebrate the birth of our ONE and ONLY living Saviour. Read Luke 2:10 We have to know that being along doesn't mean being lonely. We are NEVER alone because God says He wouldn't never leave us nor forsake us and that HE would be with us wherever we go. I can hear some of you saying but that is different I need someone REAL here with me flesh on flesh.. Yet the truth is GOD is as real as it ever gets for us. He is spirit and HE connects with the realest part of us and that is our spirits. The truth whether we feel like it or not is that God is more than enough and when you trust this then you are ready for someone else. It only when we are made whole and free that we are able to love and give to others what we ourselves have in the first place. Adam was in the garden chillin' and it was GOD who spoke it to him that it was not good for man to be alone. In our own lives we get things twisted and we decide when it is time for us to be in a relationship. So we reach out to others in our own loneliness, unfufillment and neediness and we get back from them what we think about our ownselves. If you are with someone that doesn't value, appreciate or love you in the right way it is because you FIRST think that way about you. You keep wanting and expecting God to change them when FIRST of all He wants to change you. See the truth is that when you have been processed, purged and purified and walking in the fullness of the Holy Ghost then you will discern that person that is not and has not been processed, purged or purified and is not right for you right now.
When you are in love with Jesus and walking in His love, His grace and His mercy then you want a companion that exemplifies those same qualities. You are not so desperate that you are willing to settle for anything or anyone other that God's absolute best for you.
Once you see the truth of Christ's love for you then you get revelation of your worth. Your confidence in your own greatness and specialness is so REAL that you are not willing or want to settle yourself for anything other than the best. Too many times when we don't love ourselves we settle for the caterpillar when God longs to give us the butterfly.
It is time to really KNOW and BELIEVE the truth about the person God has ordained and destined you to be and don't tolerate anything LESS when you know you want and what MORE what you deserve. The word says in 1 Corinthians 13:10 that when the perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.
I love me some HIM and I love me some ME. Be blessed, Manie
