I feel like I need you remind you brothers and sisters to push yourselves aside, and focus on the Lord. Do you hear me? YOU needs to go! Tell yourself to MOVE out of the way! GO! Your not even needed here! YOU do not belong here! GO! GET OUT! LEAVE! YOU’RE NOT WELCOME!
GOD, is all you need. Your eyes need to be FIXED on Him! DENY YOURSELF! You should, eat, sleep, breathe, think, and feel Him! You don’t need your foolish self all up in HIS body! You’ll mess it all up! You’ll mess up all his plans and hopes and dreams for you! Deny yourself! Push YOU aside! Forget you! Let God in and become identical to Him. Become like Christ! YOU messed up and that’s why YOU asked Him to come into your heart. How dare you continue to act as if you know it all! Don’t be stupid! Don’t be foolish! Don’t be so IGNORANT.

Mhmm can’t argue with the word. Watch yourselves, whether you think he or she is ‘the one’, if you’re not equally yoked you can bring trouble upon yourself. You have no time for random men to be walking in and out of your life causing heartache, God will script your love story in due time, so be still and wait on him, don’t go looking in the wrong places. During your single season he is preparing you and your future spouse for each other, so there is no rush. No randoms, no more. Because when you really think about it - when it comes to relationships, you’re either setting yourself up for heartbreak and hurting or marriage and a lifelong commitment. Why waste time and add extra stress upon yourself? Be still.
Even in friendships, if you ain’t got a mutual ground and your letting your unbeliever friend influence you in ways which create a gap between you and the Father, it’s time to do a clear out. Bad and Good don’t mix, it’s either one or the other, but continue to be a light in peoples lives and draw closer to Him, because you’ll turn heads, plant seeds and may even lead someone into salvation and become part of somebody’s redemption story.
