Investing In The Worthwhile

INVESTING IN THE WORTHWHILE…

 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.(Galatians 6:9) Everyone has so much going on now days that it can just suck the life right out of your marriage. Have you ever felt that way? I know I've been there. Life can throw a lot at us it seems and our marriages gets put on the back burner. Raising … [Read More...]

CHANGE ME LORD

CHANGE ME LORD…

Christmas is a time of celebration where I get so excited! I absolutely love this holiday because we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, but also because God has truly been changing my heart throughout this whole year. I was so excited to "give" during Christmas! In particular, there is one gift I really want to work on giving my husband … [Read More...]

HIS PRESENCE IN OUR LIFE

HIS PRESENCE IN OUR LIFE…

I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine. (Song of Solomon 6:3) I wait for the phone to ring, to hear his voice, and to know he's okay. I wait to hear the door unlock and to hear a sigh of relief. Those are the things that I wait for each night. My husband is a State Trooper (they're called State Police in some states). Anyone can be gone in a … [Read More...]

Love Triumped

LOVE TRIUMPED…

Jesus came to a broken world; a world in need of love, healing, and peace. He came to this world with a humble presence, wrapped in love, and the only gift of life. He arrived as a babe, a precious gift as the angels rejoiced. Although the angels couldn’t understand the salvation He would be; they celebrated Him. As the month of my anniversary … [Read More...]

ADORNING OUR CHARACTER

ADORNING OUR CHARACTER…

Your adornment must not be merely external—braiding the hair, and wearing gold jewelry, or putting on dresses; but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God. (I Peter 3:-3-4) These days most movies or television shows portray the husband as a joke. … [Read More...]

Sing A New Song 02

SING A NEW SONG…

You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13 Our heart is the totality of our will and emotions. Lately my emotions have been all over the place, specifically fear. Fear can be healthy, but it can also be crippling, it's distracting and demands our attention. I've learned in the past month that I'm either … [Read More...]

HIS LOVE IN US

HIS LOVE IN US…

And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. (1 Corinthians 13:13) I can't tell you how much I love my husband. I never knew I could love someone so long or so much. We've only been married for 8 years in December, but life has brought us some hard struggles. He's seen my best and my worst. We've … [Read More...]

BATTLE SONG OF PRAISE

BATTLE SONG OF PRAISE…

During the darkest period of my marriage, I had to make a choice who was going to win the battle for my husband’s heart. Yet, as the words of my husband rang in my ears, “I have decided to walk away from God,” I was determined to fight for it. Although my husband refused to reveal the reason behind his decision, I felt blindsided.  As the days … [Read More...]

Thanking God For Him

THANKING GOD FOR HIM…

 I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, Philippians 1:3 I would have never guessed the man I'm married would be the man God had for me. We were so different and seemed to be on different paths in life. As always, God had other plans for the two of us that we didn't really know. After almost seven years of marriage to this man of mine, I can … [Read More...]

THANKFULLNESS ISNT BORN

THANKFULLNESS ISN’T BORN…

A long time ago, I wrote this statement in a blog, “A thankful spirit isn’t born; it’s learning to rest in the goodness of God.” It’s hard to rest when your world is spinning out of control. No matter where you turn, someone is calling your name or demanding your attention whether it’s a business report, eight loads of laundry, or bills waiting to … [Read More...]

GOD'S LOVINGLY CONCERNED

GOD’S LOVINGLY CONCERNED…

If faith was never tried, we would never see the impossible. Right now, it may feel as life is heading towards the edge of impossible.  All of the turns seem to be going to a dead end, there is no exit in sight.  Bills are piling up, children need school items, and the car needs attention.  Yet, even though you have tried to fix the problems, the … [Read More...]

RECEIVING GRACE…

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrews 4:16) We've talked a lot about giving grace to our husbands this month, but what about receiving grace? I used to think giving grace was the hardest to do, but I'm finding now that receiving grace is pretty hard … [Read More...]
