The Love Detox
Toxins are everywhere; in the air, in our food and in our water. They wreak havoc over our physical health by creating a host of illnesses. That’s why there is a huge demand for body cleanses and detoxes. However there is an even greater need for a cleansing of our relationships. Our hearts need a detox too. Think about it, love is in a state of disrepair. Love gets twisted daily because it is contaminated by toxins. For example, the overly critical parent thinks that degrading his/her child is love. The jealous spouse thinks that clinging to the other is love. The single adult thinks love is getting a late night sexual request text. The teenager thinks that love is a friend who loses his/her temper and punches.
In each above instance love is diseased and distorted. Each was wrong. Destroying your child's self-esteem is not love. Suffocating your spouse due to your insecurities is not love. Allowing yourself to be used for sexual purposes is not love. Being hit is not love.
Love, according to the Word of God, found in 1 Corinthians 13: 4-7, … is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; 6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things.
God has allowed me to serve others in the area of Christian relationships for over 25 years. During this time I created The Love Clinic, wrote several relationships books, preached and taught nationally and was featured in Ebony, Essence and Jet magazines. Recently God poured into my spirit a new method of helping enhance and improve relationships God’s way, called The Love Detox. I am releasing it in a DVD format that allows me to lead you through the steps to remove spiritual toxins. I will guide you through a spiritually cleansing experience.
You or your relationship may need The Love Detox. Your ability to love others may be under functioning, plagued with chronic bouts of fear, or have abnormally low levels of forgiveness.
Take a second and answer these five questions please.
Do you find yourself in constant emotional chaos?
Are you in a state of anger or rage often?
Are you able to maintain on to relationships, or do they come and go?
Do regrets about the past determine your current situation?
Do you doubt that you are good enough to be loved?
If you answered yes to any of the questions above, you do need The Love Detox.
