As I read my devotional this morning, I realized it was my story as well. This just goes to show that no matter what we go through, we are not alone. Someone has experienced the same pain, loss, hurt, discouragement as you are going through in this very moment, so don’t allow yourself to become so overwhelmed during the trial that you lose hope for your future. You will get through it, and you’ll be able to help someone else as they go through their life issues because you made it (testify).
I sometimes find myself wondering if I’m on the right track spiritually. Am I fulfilling my life purpose. I know I love The Lord and I am trying to live my life according to His word, and then the Lord softly reassures me (through His word) that He is in control and He will orchestrate opportunity in my daily walk (work or leisure) to do His will in and through my life.
This always seems to happen when I begin to question my purpose, so there’s no need to try and force anything, simply study Gods word, stay prayerful, and be kind. The Lord gives us opportunity to share the love of Jesus, just listen for that urgent tug at your heart or a thought that won’t let you rest, then move or speak with love, and share your faith.
Give us this day all that we need and forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Matthew 6
A disagreement may have angered you, and it still may not be resolved but you should love them enough to be concerned about them, even if they dont know your doing it!
This is an awesome blog from a fellow blogger. I’ve talked about the same thing before as well. Be carful not to get caught up in busyness, it can be the “devil” in your relationship
Busyness…I wonder sometimes if we will ever get it. I HATE being busy. I DESPISE it. But it is the time of season around here where it is inevitable. We spend most of the winter quietly going out of our minds with little to do then BAM!@$&@….busyness hits you out of no where. When you live on 900 acres there is always a project, always ongoing lawn care, landscaping, yard work and cleanup. So it’s these days that my husbands eyes don’t meet mine for dinner til 9, 10, sometimes 11pm at night.
The reason I’m writing about busyness is because It seems a lot of people I talk to these days are busy, and with busyness comes petty arguments and fights, nitpicking, ornery comments, snide remarks and fighting over really the most stupid things!
Can you believe my hubby and I got into an argument recently over following directions?…

I was sitting in deep thought as I watched my husband taking a nap the other day, I was thinking about how my he and I are older now with grown children and grandchildren, yet when I look at him, I see him not his age, not his flaws. I am amazed at how much I still love the man I see. He is so funny, kind and even more thoughtful than he was as a young man.
I know marriage can be challenging, but I promise you, if you put God first, keep loving, keep laughing and keep sharing, it gets easier and easier as the years go by, and they will go by faster than you can imagine
You could be rejected and not understand what’s happening. So let me help you out. When you keep reaching out, and they don’t reciprocate (return the gesture) it may be that they don’t want to talk, be friends, or communicate with you any longer. You should understand that most relationships are meant to be lifelong.
Try not to be upset if you are being ignored, avoided, or even “unfriended on social media”. See your own worth and decide that you are going to be adult about this, and even be okay with greeting them with a smile if you see them in passing.
So have your moment of “How dare they reject me” then tell yourself, If they want to go, let them go!
1 Peter 2:4 ESV, ” As you come to Him (Jesus),He is a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious”
