He will, if you ask Him

It’s funny how God works with us at times. I recognize His hand in my life at moments when I would rather not, because I’m angry or upset. You know how you just want to be you and say what you want to say, regardless of what you realize might be right at the time, or dare I say, Godly!

As I grow in age and in Godly wisdom, I have come to realize that humility and self-control are a huge part of living a God centered life. If I act in love, I humble myself to understand how another person feels, more so than how I may feel about them in the moment. It becomes, “not so important” for others to see things my way or to see a situation as I see it, if it’s causing anger or strife between us.

If you are struggling in a relationship and you want to talk, but you feel as if you can’t have a conversation, for fear of not being understood, or you feel as though anger may take control of that conversation, pray for God to create an opportunity (an appointed time) for a conversation to take place, where you both can listen and be heard in love and with understanding, and where a resolution will take place. You’ll know when it’s the right time if you remain prayerful concerning your needs.

I wrote this blog over a year ago but because of today’s sermon on repairing relationships, I felt there need to repository it.

Matthew 5:33
If you have an offering and there at the alter you remember that your” brother” (husband,wife, sister, friend) has something against you, leave your offering, go and be reconciled and then bring your offering

Dont take it personal, It’s a spiritual fight

The enemies job is to cause us to feel as if we don’t qualify, as if we don’t belong where we know we should be at this time, and to cause our faith to fail. The bible says;” For we wrestle not against flesh and blood (people) but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12). Even with all the positive feedback and continued confirmation that this Blog is helping others, the enemy still tries to come in and destroy a good work. Gods Word says; “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11).

Life is not fair! Problems can seem to be more than we can bear, fear can literally paralyze us if we allow it to, but God will never put more on us than we are able to bear. Keep the faith and “press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Jesus Christ” (Philippians 3:14).

(Isaiah 41:9-10)
You are my servant,
I have chosen you and not cast you off”;
do not fear, for I am with you,
do not be afraid, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
I will uphold you with my victorious right hand.
