There’s a difference between someone who believes in God and someone who loves God

Me.. just being in my head.. overthinking about situations that won’t ever exist.. and also reflecting on words and experiences…and this is one thought my mind decided to linger on and peruse

Last night I went to a Team Night worship service.
And the pastor said this as a side line…
“There’s a difference between someone who believes in God..and someone who loves God.”

And as someone who is CONSTANTLY told by people that my standards are “too high” (it’s really not.. if I put myself to the same standard and do my best to live by it.. I’m sure there others like me.. girls or guys), I started to doubt myself.

Like am I REALLY being that unreasonable? Should I try being a little more open?

But hearing that was just reassurance that I made the right moves passing guys who claim to know Him but not live for Him.

It reminded me that no, my standards are not too high.

And if it really came down to it, hands down, I will choose being single in this temporary physical world as long as I get to keep my relationship with Christ.

Just a random feeling of peace that came after reflecting on those words from last night.

If you’re a sister in Christ.. cherish that relationship you have with Christ more than your desire for marriage 💕

I always say that you’re only single once.
Live the most God-glorifying life as you can in your singleness.

(This is for my single sisters in Christ who might be struggling with their desire for a relationship.. its not to say that married men/women are any less devoted to God than a single person. Please do not twist my words of encouragement around ☺)

“In the same way, a woman who is no longer married or has never been married can be devoted to the Lord and holy in body and in spirit. But a married woman has to think about her earthly responsibilities and how to please her husband.”
1 Corinthians 7:34 NLT
