Storms come to distract, and/or throw you off course; sometimes it’s the storm that re-directs you into the perfect will of God.

Hint: It has nothing to do with her needing help… but everything to do with the need to connect with each other on an intimate level. (intimacy = into me you see)
We’re uniquely created like that… with a need to connect.
I admit, I have often gotten caught up being so “busy” (dishes, laundry, cooking, paying bills, auto maintenance, being a mom, ministry) that I have failed to “see” the person I married. Though I see “A” man, I have often failed to see past the “man” and see the person.. “my husband.” and in doing so, I have forgotten to be the “wife.”
I want to be a good wife, and sometimes I measure my success as a wife by the amount of things I do… when it’s really not about that. It’s everything about how I “am the wife to my husband” by giving of myself “to” him in quality time and attention. Something I’m going to purpose in my heart to work on.
I‘m thankful for this reminder. Thank you, Alexandria Lucas, for sharing this with me. I needed this.
Thank You, Heavenly Father for marriage… that’s designed to be like our relationship with you.

I once read “when you truly miss someone, their absence speaks greater that the presence of others.”
Many days ago I was driving home, and I began to think about her approaching birthday. I miss her today as much as I did at first when she went home. So very much.
I can still see her sitting across the table from me as we drank coffee together. I can hear her laugh and see her smile. Truthfully I’ve never seen anyone smile as big as her. A smile that made every worry disappear.
This particular day the tears flowed more so than they ever had before. Even voicing how much I miss her cannot express the depth of her absence in my life. As I moved my hand to wipe the tears from my cheek, I realized ………. she still can make me smile.
Happy birthday my sweet friend.
You are greatly missed.
Until we meet again.
I remember one year at a Texas District Youth Camp Meeting, the speaker asked for volunteers to play the instruments on the platform.
From the congregation of quickly raised hands, he selected one volunteer for each instrument.
Not one of them had ever played an instrument before.
He said on the count of three for everyone to start playing.
I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out; I knew one thing, it could only go one way or the other.
It could’ve been exceptionally miraculously beautiful, or absolutely horrendously awful!
Or so I thought😉
On the count of three, everyone started playing their instruments.
To my ears, it was absolutely awful, but at the very second they begin playing, I experienced something amazing that had never happened to me before.
it was like I was being refilled with the Holy Ghost ….. and I heard God speak “No matter what anybody says, it will always be praise to Me.”
We hear with the natural ear, and it is very much different from what God hears. He hears the intents our hearts.
How silly we must look to God trying to make everyone happy.
We were made to glorify God… not people.
Galatians 1:10 Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.
When we set out to please God… he gets all the glory.
Just a thought; Couldn’t the same be said trying to please man?

Unforgiveness is holding the offender liable for an offense… AKA debt.
When we harbor unforgiveness, we are holding them responsible for a debt that they cannot pay. A debt that Jesus already paid in full.
When we overlook the price He paid and put our offender on the cross; our actions say the price He paid was insufficient.
My friend, you cannot collect on a debt that has already been paid.
Take your offender off the cross and give thanks for our Fathers ultimate sacrifice. The sacrifice that gives you freedom.
Pray for the offender and move on. You’ll find traveling your journey will be much easier.
I choose to be:
better, and not bitter, joyful and not depressed.
I choose to live in freedom, over captivity
I choose to treat others with kindness rather than meanness regardless of how others treat me.
I choose to speak with love and gentleness regardless of how my day is going.
How I treat others is not to be predicated on internal or external factors, but it is a reflection of who I am within.
I am who I choose to be.
