THE BEST QUESTION EVER FOR RELATIONSHIPS

What Is The WISEST Thing To do
In light of my past experience, my present circumstance & my future hopes & dreams.

1) THEY RECOGNIZED GODLY CHARACTER.
Pleasing is the fragrance of your perfumes; your name is like perfume poured out. No wonder the maidens love you! Songs 1:3
A wife of noble character is her husband's crown, but a disgraceful wife is like decay in his bones. Proverbs 12:4


2) THEY BUILT GODLY TRUST.
Dark am I, yet lovely, O daughters of Jerusalem, dark like the tents of Kedar, like the tent curtains of Solomon.  Do not stare at me because I am dark, because I am darkened by the sun. My mother's sons were angry with me and made me take care of the vineyards; my own vineyard I have neglected. Songs 1:5-6

3) THEY PRACTICED GODLY STANDARDS.
Tell me, you whom I love, where you graze your flock and where you rest your sheep at midday. Why should I be like a veiled woman beside the flocks of your friends?   Songs 1:7

I WILL NOT: 
*SACRIFICE MY RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.
*COMPROMISE GOD’S STANDARDS.
*PLAY HOUSE
.

4) THEY GREW WITH GODLY ENCOURAGEMENT.

I liken you, my darling, to a mare harnessed to one of the chariots of Pharaoh.
Songs 1:9
While the king was at his table, my perfume spread its fragrance. My lover is to me a sachet of myrrh resting between my breasts. Songs 1:12-13
How beautiful you are, my darling! Oh, how beautiful! Your eyes are doves. How handsome you are, my lover… Songs 1:15-16


THE RESULT:
SHE FEELS SPECIAL.

I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys. Like a lily among thorns is my darling among the maidens. Songs 2:1
He has taken me to the banquet hall, and his banner over me is love.  Songs 2:4

SHE FEELS SECURE.
Like an apple tree among the trees of the forest is my lover among the young men. I delight to sit in his shade, and his fruit is sweet to my taste. Songs 2:3

Decade Of Destiny- Year 3, GREATER 2014

Freedom Life 2014 Vision Video from Freedom Life Christian Center on Vimeo . Dream Bigger.  Start Smaller.  Ignite God's Vision For Your Life!  @StevenFurtick The theme for year 3 of Decade of Destiny is,  "GREATER,"  based on the best-selling book from Steven Furtick.  The Bible says in John 14:12,  "I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father (NLT)."    2012 marked the beginning of a 10 year vision for our church called,  "Decade Of Destiny."   Since that time, God has been gracious to our church as we have witnessed hundreds of people make decisions to follow Jesus, dozens more baptized and powerful ministry occur in environments geared toward children, youth, young adults, married couples and people from all walks of life.  This past year was an exciting year of INCREASE for Freedom Life.  We expanded the reach of our church by adding a

"Genesis Week" -an excerpt from my upcoming mini-book!

Here's an excerpt from one of the "Small Book, Big Difference" mini-books that I'm currently writing. It's called, "Genesis Week- Creating A Life Worth Living One Day At A Time" and will be out this summer or eventually.  ____________________________________________________________   “... God, make a fresh start in me, shape a Genesis week from the chaos of my life...”.   Psalm 51:7-15 (MSG) On July 4, 2012, hundreds of thousands of people eagerly gathered in San Diego, California, to enjoy an 18-minute fireworks show that was advertised as one of the "biggest in the nation."   People waited for hours for what was sure to be the best ever Big Bay Boom. Hundreds of thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours had been spent on planning and preparing for this epic event.  A few minutes before the anticipated 9 p.m. start time, the show began, unexpectedly. In one loud blast, all of the fireworks ignited simultaneously. Th
