About Our Love, Relationship And Marriage Conference: Bring Me Back To Loving You

@Regrann from @frances_okoro -  I want to get married. . I want to get married. .
But hold up.. God wants to bless you with a spouse but can you as you are right now be a blessing to that spouse?

Are you filling up and preparing for the marital blessing you desire? 
I know deep questions all for marriage head. . I felt this way too when God told me I wasn't a wife.

And @raymond_emamezi felt this way too when God told him he wasn't ALONE.

BUT THANK GOD. THE ONE THAT UNEARTHS SO HE CAN COME THROUGH WITH HIS OWN TRUTH JUST SO HE CAN BLESS YOU WITH WHAT YOU ARE ASKING FOR.

Some persons fall into the trap of "I know all I need to know about this love and relationship thingy" but sometimes all we know are what our parents did and what society has taught us. 
Tomorrow we want to gather and dig into the word concerning relationships and marriages.

To the glory of God, every TWTW meet is special. I was going to say every new meet is better than the last, but I’ve decided to stick with the word ‘special’ because every meet has a purpose and God fulfills it so I can’t say one is better than the other.

From the theme ‘Bring Me Back To Loving You’, I knew the meet on the 24th of June was going to be very special for me.

We started with prayers (of course) and just filled the atmosphere with God’s presence. We then had a short interesting session where few members were to share why they had come. Tolu knew names so some of us couldn’t hide. 😒

After that we had an amazing worship session and every song was a message! Every song was a call to action and prayer for me. After that we had an amazing sister from Benin who shared her testimony. My God, she had been through rape, childbirth, depression, attempted suicide, but somehow, God kept her through it all…Her mess had become an inspiring message.

After that was the panel session with the two invited couples. This was a very ‘real’ time as they told us about different aspects of courtship/marriage; how men love (not like) sex and how women love (not like) attention and care.

I’ve shared all of this in order to do a ‘report-like’ article, but this is where I’m really going- the very last session with Frances.

God had woken me up with ‘Return to your first love’ few days before the program, even though Frances hadn’t spilled what the theme was really about. I just knee that for me, it wasn’t about romance or even courtship, it was about really going back to God, my first love.

No, I hadn’t lost my salvation. I still loved Jesus and adored Him more than anyone else.
But as I sat during that session, I knew the things that God missed about our relationship. It all started to play in my head-

How I woke everyday at 4/5am to spend sweet time with God and just loved reading His word for hours! Classes started 8 or 10 am and I’ll be with God for 2-3 hours straight, not wanting to leave.
Now, I have to use alarm and I often snooze it too.

How did I get here?

As she talked and apologized to God, as she spilled her own beans, I knew that God was showing each of us our shortcomings. He was playing it all in our heads, how we begun to seek things before Him. How His gifts became bigger than His presence. How his promises and ‘work’ for the kingdom had taken His place in our hearts.

Oh, I cried bitter tears knowing that I’d broken God’s heart. It realization that God even missed the things we used to do hit me. Such an awesome God, loving and longing for His children?
Why?
What sort of love is that sef?

But we repented. How can we not?

Personally, I’ve taken note of the things I used to do when I first fell in love with God and hope to do even more now. Not as a religion, but as worship and as reference of how good He’s been.

You may read this post for context of the things I did before.

We left the meet, heart surrendered and promises made to retrace our steps, to get to where God and God alone is our satisfaction.

And we’re grateful that He has done it, He has brought us back to loving Him. Amen.

And what’s the topic of this whole article about?
What’s your one thing?

Here’s mine:
One thing I have asked of the Lord , and that I will seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord [in His presence] all the days of my life, To gaze upon the beauty [the delightful loveliness and majestic grandeur] of the Lord And to meditate in His temple.
PSALM 27:4 AMP

 

I began to laugh in the spirit when Frances used that verse to buttress her point. Why? Because I had read the same verse before I stepped out to go for the meet. It’s my favorite verse in the whole world and it’s written in front of my journal.

I knew then that God had really planned it all.

He is my ONE THING.
Here are few of our pictures after the program. ❤
