“The Storms” of Life

You know when you feel as though everything seems to be going wrong in your life?  Well my husband and I realized the other night, just how much our family has had to endure.

Although the bible tells us to rejoice in troubles, in the natural that seems unrealistic or unachievable until you understand the power of God.  Part of the reason that God allows us to experience sorrows and trials in our lives, is so that we might depend on Him, draw closer to Him, and learn that He is the power which sustains us.  He will  provide for us all that we need at any time in our lives, especially during the trials of life.

All of Gods children go through storms (troubling times), but it is precisely during the “Going through” moments of any crisis, that Gods peace is more evident than ever before.

Just remember that you are “Going through”, not remaing in “The Storm”. 

This too shall pass. 2Corinthians 4:17-18

Romans 12:12  Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.

Pay Attention!

Although, I have never cheated on my husband, I can honestly say, early in my marriage, there were a few times when I felt alone, misunderstood or neglected. In those brief moments of my marriage, there seemed to always be someone (a man) that would miraculously appear who had just the right words to say, so very complimenting, good looking, a nice smile and smelling oh so good! I had to recognize it for what it was (temptation)! I even quit a job I loved for this very reason! I loved God and my husband too much to cheat on either of them.

When things are not quite right in your relationship, your partner will let you know if they are unhappy either by showing a lack of interest in you or by verbalizing it. Don’t be blind, selfish or angry! Everyone is capable of cheating given the opportunity. Do what it took to get them because that’s what it takes sometimes to keep them. After all, they fell in love with YOU, that person who loved making them smile and who did whatever it took to make them happy. That effort should be ongoing, always and forever!

Every description of marriage in the bible says it requires love, compassion, patience and respect for one another.
