Do u see ur friend, pained &wearied working a plan that seems repeatedly thwarted? Seek God WITH them &encourage them 2keep the END in view!

 

Whatever our reasons, our human hearts DO vote in tyrants over ourselves, whether a political or a sinful kind. Democracy is NOT our savior.

 

Amazing what “walls” we are willing to move when for love both of Christ and each other we realize our “legalisms” can really bear no loads.

 

By grace I am not what I was &by grace tho not yet what I will be I KNOW HE IS faithful 2finish the good work he’s begun.

 

Feelings are not Faith. MAY be fruit of Faith OR fruit of LACK (ie: fear). Better SAY NOTHING if ur not sure ur being LED by God.

 

heard today: “Doing your best” is NOT a standard. There is a difference between doing ur best, and doing what IS best.”

 

“Give me the hottest woman, a woman hotter than you in every way, and she wouldn’t excite me NEARLY as much as you do!”

 

Giving grace in relationshp means 1st seeing ur NEED 4grace which=humble urself, recognize ur weakness/failings so u can hv patience &peace.

 

Good rule in dating, fit for marriage too: Do not create expectations/demands (in ur heart/mind) that the other cannot righteously fulfill.

 

Be honest but loving; u can prevent a fight by identifying ur own emotional weakness &confess up front! – free ur spouse from having 2GUESS!

 

Obviously no 2marriages are the same. Don’t despair if u’ve no example; take care what voices u invite 2speak counsel. Better 2b prayerful!

 

Husband, don’t despise ur wife’s emotional needs. But Wife? don’t “demand” all be met by ur husband – look 2Christ &build godly friendships!

 

Re-read journal 4past months, surprizd at repeat references 2my man’s expressing his affections. I FELT insecure; til I CHOSE 2believe him.

 

…prick me, and I bleed words…..some things never change. 😉

About Grace2Grow

Leah holds a Bachelor's degree in Philosophy, and considers herself a forever-student at heart, especially of the Word of God. The last few years have included a 160+ lbs weightloss, and a complete re-working of her "inner man" as she has had to journey from merely what she "knew" to putting that into "ACTION" .. a transformation that so rocked her core, she believes God's calling in her life includes a sense of "urgency," as the body of Christ is fully - knowingly or unknowingly - entrenched in These Last Days, just as Jesus prophesied. She has worked in various forms of professional Customer Service for nearly 20 years, from Mortgages and Banking to Automotive Plastics, and values most the opportunity to mediate and problem-solve. Leah has served over the years in varying roles, from Women's Bible Study Leader to Choir Director to Worship Leading to teaching Sunday School to working faithfully in the Nursery. She loves being a Wife and Aunt and Sister and Daughter and Friend, and loves to read just about anything she can put her hands on. She is always re-learning putting feet and muscle to these things, but she has learned there is incalculable value in "working the plan," and "being faithful with LITTLE so as to be entrusted with MUCH." And she is trusting her beloved God and Savior for the "much" yet to come. You can find more of her musings on her blogs at http://grace2grow.com and http://grace2grow.blogspot.com/, or follow her on Twitter at https://twitter.com/grace2grow
