This past weekend I got to spend some time in Rosemont, Illinois at the Ascension Convention which is hosted by a local Bible college out of Mount Prospect, Illinois, Christian Life College . I actually attended Christian Life, in fact it's where I met my husband, so it's kind of fitting that I got the chance to be at Ascension and do a break out session about true love.
I spoke on The Truth About True Love and how through books, music, movies and tv shows the world will try to sell you a lie about what love is, how it looks, and what it's for. I did a lot of twitter stalking to get some ideas for what I wanted to address and it just unlocked this whole world of young people who were in bondage to a worldly understanding of love. The danger with being in bondage to a worldly understanding of love is that if you're so hung up on the world's idea of love you will never get the fullness of love that God's plan for love. I had the opportunity to pray with brokenhearted kids and offer hope to some who thought it was too late for them. It was incredible to watch God move in their hearts and I'm still in awe that I got to be a part of it!!
Knowing the truth about love is important for all of us, whether we're married, single, young, old, whatever. There is never a bad time to hear the truth. So in that spirit, here is my session, for you or maybe for a teenager in your life who needs to learn how to spot the lies and cling to the truth.
