I had this on my heart for a long time.
Tonight I saw yet another add for 50 Shades of Grey...and decided to share with you not what I think about this movie in particular, but just romantic movies in general.
Let's stop here for just 2 sec and decide on one thing...50 Shades of Grey is NOT a romantic movie ... let's continue.
I know that feeling of snuggling on a comfy sofa, alone or with your loved one and watch a really good romantic movie. You know...The Notebook, Dear John..,Nicholas Sparks is one talented writer. I enjoyed watching those movies ( some, more then once). But it hit me a while back that if I am not careful, that beautifully written fantasy love story can impact how I view my own love story and my husband.
We need to be very careful about what we let in in our mind ladies. It can create a dissatisfaction in our spirit and our conscious doesn't even connect with the contributing content.
It is true that what causes one to stumble may not cause another one to trip but what do we truly benefit from it?
This is important for young ladies looking for a future husbands as well. Noah...is not real ladies, sorry to disappoint. Life is not a perfect written movie with perfect romantic moments...there is no soundtrack...no wind blowing your hair at the right time while you walk... in slow motion ..towards The One!
No. None of that.
It's even better! It's real, and one of a kind, no cliche's, and best of all, it is written by the creator of Love. The one who knows the desires of your heart.
Give God the chance to write your love story.
And as for married couples...I read once about this illustration.
Imagine you and your husband as the base of a triangle, one in each angle and God at the top angle...
Closer you both get to God the closer you get to each other.
Life, married life is hard work...you add kids in the mix and it becomes this crazy, messy ( oh so messy!) BEAUTIFUL REAL LIFE!
