From an empty way of life to real love...

Marian Jordan has recently written a book called 'Sex and the City Uncovered.' In it she chronicles her own life and spiritual journey, from idolizing Madonna as a 12-year-old to having been set free by the Jesus Christ.

Jordan writes, "In one episode from season three of SATC Charlotte memorably comments, 'Women just really want to be rescued. I'm sorry but it's true. I've been dating since I was 15. I'm exhausted. Where is he?'"

Look past the glamor and all you see is four women looking for love in all the wrong places, hiding their scarred hearts with designer clothes and desperately attempting to fill a void in their lives. Marian Jordan

Are you finding the life you're living empty? What might God be whispering to you?

1 Peter 1:18-25
Your life is a journey you must travel with a deep consciousness of God. It cost God plenty to get you out of that dead-end, empty-headed life you grew up in. He paid with Christ's sacred blood, you know. He died like an unblemished, sacrificial lamb. And this was no afterthought. Even though it has only lately—at the end of the ages—become public knowledge, God always knew he was going to do this for you. It's because of this sacrificed Messiah, whom God then raised from the dead and glorified, that you trust God, that you know you have a future in God.

Now that you've cleaned up your lives by following the truth, love one another as if your lives depended on it. Your new life is not like your old life. Your old birth came from mortal sperm; your new birth comes from God's living Word. Just think: a life conceived by God himself! That's why the prophet said,
The old life is a grass life, its beauty as short-lived as wildflowers; Grass dries up, flowers droop, God's Word goes on and on forever. This is the Word that conceived the new life in you. (Isaiah 40:6-8)
