While on a road trip recently , my husband was listening to one of his favorite old school CDs when a song (Put it on paper) came on. It reminded me of something our minister said in his sermon that Sunday . He talked about how he counseled a couple who were having problems first of all because the man in the relationship didn’t want to get married. His statement to the minister was, “Why do I need a piece of paper to say I’m committed to a person”. The minister responded so wisely in my opinion with this statement; He said, Do you drive, you must have a drivers license. Do you have a weapon, then you must have a permit to carry it. Do you fish, then you have to have a fishing license, So if you are willing to obtain a license for all those things, why not love her enough to do the legal and spiritually correct thing and marry her if you are truly committed to her and the relationship???
And just this morning I heard on the morning show why Opra Winfrey said she couldn’t marry long time partner excuses, excuses, excuses! Bottom line is, don’t allow anyone to devalue you with their selfish excuses or childhood issues and personal hang ups. If they aren’t willing to do the right thing by you, they might not be the right person for you.
Hebrews 13:4. Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.
Well “it’s about time”! It is one of the most important relationships you will ever have, and the best advice I can give is, Stop being selfish! If you know you are bad with money and even though they do things differently from you, they seem to have a better relationship with finances than you do, give up the power!! Hand over the responsibility of bill paying, spending, and saving, and be willing to take good advice from your “better half”, cause they got it going on in that department !!
I know of what I speak because I did it, and things got so much better once I saw things my husbands way, (He’s gonna love this post!). We got so good at managing our finances that we are now debt free!! I’m not bragging, I’m just trying to help someone. I’m so glad I stopped being selfish and put into practice my husbands way of doing things because we still love each other and we are living the life God promised us!
If you recognize yourself in this post, don’t be so stubborn that you continue in the wrong direction just to spite your spouse. Be flexible and be honest concerning your weaknesses and flaws. Things can and most likely will change with your cooperation.
If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God — who gives to all generously and ungrudgingly — and it will be given to him. —James 1:5
I LOVE EVERYONE, AND I HAVE GAY FAMILY MEMBERS WHO I ADORE. I DIDN’T STOP LOVING THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE Homosexual , BUT!! I believe we will be judged for that which we do, as as well as that which we do not. It’s time stop being quieted by the world. The Bible tells us that we would be ridiculed and subject to anger because of our beliefs. Why are we so shocked and afraid to speak up now.
The networks have officially gone too far for me! This morning while watching my local station a soap opera commercial showed actors portraying gay men kissing. ITS NOT NATURAL FOR EVERYONE!! I don’t want to see this, and my grandchildren should not be subject to this type of relationship as a normal way of life.
Gods people need to say something, I did. I searched out the NBC Universal contact info and I want to share it with anyone who feels the same as I do. Call and voice your disapproval (if you disapprove). We are the consumer, and it is possible to get television back to “clean” content. Don’t wait for someone else to do it, you do it!
Take a stand or things are just going to get worse……Our viewing drives ratings, make the networks and the actors money, yes we pay them for what they are doing and drive the type of entertainment which ends up being on television. If we complain and STOPWATCHING offensive television, things can will change. Television could go back to good clean entertainment again.
To all of you who have lost heart concerning this whole political process, this is nothing new. When we turn away from God, this is what happens. Satan wants us to feel hopeless, helpless and even angry. Satan wants us to forget or not to truly understand the power of God. But I am here to remind you that GodRules over Everything including satan and what we must do is repent and turn from sin, pray (God’s Word) and trust Him to deliver us just as He did for the children of Israel who turned their back on God and His law, just as America has.
God desires a relationship with us, (that’s us reading and living His word, communicating with Him regularly, and praying), then we can say to Him that which His word says concerning our issues, Not because He forgot His promise but because a relationship with Him is what moves God to work on our behalf.
So, have you ever found yourself being envious of the relationship you think other couples have? Well, I have but I also can’t count the times I have been told ” You guys seem to have the perfect relationship” or “I wish we had what you guys have”. “If walls could talk” you would see just how much alike we may actually be. You have to understand that most of us put our best foot forward in the presence of others We allow them to only see the best of us, the happy, the fun or the affectionate part of our relationship while we are in the company of others. So don’t allow envy of another couples relationship to destroy your own relationship because in most cases, it’s not completely what you think it is!
There is absolutely NO perfect relationship between anyone, and that includes me and my hubby. Ours like most, is a work in progress.
Your goal should simply be to implement ideas, language, and even activities, in your relationship which please you both, and which betters your ability to communicate with one another, that’s it! That’s a recipe for a wonderful relationship
So I had a moment recently in which I was forcedeven more to remindmyself to be submissive.
As I have told you more than once, submissiveness is an ongoing process for all of us. It is not always easy for me to conduct myself as an agreeable and humble wife, but the Holy spirit is always right there to remind me of my role as a wife because I ask Him to help me.
I know, I know, but it is a process and if your heart is in it, and your goal is to please our God, then it really does get easier with time, prayer and God’s power to help you.
16. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. 17. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, [do] all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. 18. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord. 19. Husbands, love [your] wives, and be not bitter against them.
Okay, okay, I’m done. Fix your face and have a great day😒
