I see you watching
Do you like what you see?
Am I single?
Well, sorta kinda maybe
What did you have in mind?
Your face looks familiar
I see you all the time
And I can keep you company tonight
You ain’t gotta tell nobody
Ain’t nobody else around watching
Yeah just say the word and you got it
Right here, right now
Jay was lonely
And he’s looking for love on the net
A man has needs, what you expect?
He looked through all their pages
And when he found her man he lost his breath
Cause it was love at first sight when they met
His heart beating hard
She was kinda light skinned, eyes like he liked them
Can’t fight them feelings when they hit you this hard
It’s long distance, so he’s with her online all the time
He’s at work but this girl’s on his mind all the time
He can’t wait to see her, she got them banging features
When they together he don’t mind he gotta pay with Visa
His homies warned him “slow down that woman can’t complete you”
But he’s in the game of love he don’t want to stay in bleachers
Or so he thinks, What I forgot to say is
Jay is married and his heart’s supposed to be…
I love discussing God’s will for our lives, even when someone disagrees with me about it. Conversations can get real tense real quick though—especially when we’re talking about controversial issues. It’s never fun to tell someone that you think they’re wrong. So I try to be careful with my words, and simply point to what God says, rather than my own opinions.

You conveniently skipped over that verse, huh?” It never fails.
In Matthew 7 Jesus says, “Do not judge, or you too will be judged.” Even those of us who’ve never read the Bible can quote this part of his sermon word for word. This may be the most well known Bible verse in our day. And it may also be the most misunderstood
Misunderstanding this verse means we misunderstand how we’re supposed to love one another. So it’s important that we ask the question: What does Jesus mean when he tells us not to judge?
What He Doesn’t Mean
Last weekend, my wife and I attended a marriage workshop at our church. As we walked through every…
Everybody wants to be loved. Whether we admit it or not, all of us have this natural desire to feel adored and appreciated by others. Many of us spend our entire lives searching for someone to love us, in hopes that somebody- anybody- will satisfy this longing inside.
Well if you’re planning to lose yourself in romance today and you’re hoping that you’ll finally satisfy that longing, I want you to know that your aim is too low. You won’t find the greatest love of all at a candle light dinner tonight. However, there is an all powerful, all satisfying, perfect love available to you. There’s a God who loves you more than you could ever imagine. His love isn’t fickle and you don’t have to woo Him or work for it.
Does God Love Us?
I know sometimes many of us wonder whether or not God really loves us. He seems so far away. And maybe we’d stop doubting if He did something to make it clear for us. The truth us, He already has. The Bible says, “God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
And again it says, “For God so…
