GREAT MINDS

Monday, May 02, 2011


Great Minds

For anyone to succeed in life the state of the mind plays a crucial role. Check out people who have managed to make outstanding discoveries or excel in difficult circumstances you will find out that they had and a strong and disciplined mind.

No one is born with a great mind, they only learn to make great and right choices as they encountered challenges in life and sometimes after many failures.

Success comes through strong and joyful minds. Successful people would have to choose not to be discouraged, sad, or overwhelmed by the problems they face.

Your mind is important, it will lead you to either success or defeat in your marriage. To succeed you need to guard your mind, if all you do is choose to worry, complain, nag, and threaten the result would be sadness, quitting and failure.

Your mind needs to be sound and strong for you to apply the wisdom of God to the challenges you face in your relationship.

Worry and sadness only worsens things, even though it seems like the natural thing to do, but for you to win, you need an encouraged and joyful mind. THE JOY OF THE LORD WILL ENCOURAGE YOU IN HARD TIMES SO LET JOY IN.

We can draw up two equations from all these.
Sadness + worry + nagging + complaining = Failure in marriage.

Joy + encouragement + wise counsel + Godís wisdom + sound thinking = Overcoming Challenges in marriage.

How you process what you are facing will determine your destination.

Put your mind on God and His word this would give you perfect peace in tough times. No matter how long this problem has lasted, start applying Godís wisdom now, make wise choices diligently now and you are on your way to victory.

God loves you, He sees what you are going through and wants to lead you to victory. Rise up and start applying your mind to joy, strength and courage, train yourself to quickly identify negative thinking and overcome them.

Boundaries of Love

Sunday, May 01, 2011

Boundaries are limits and borders that determine the extent you can go and remain right in your marriage/relationship especially when you are unhappy. Outside the boundary are no go areas.

In a relationship where there are no boundaries restricting what you are allowed to say or do especially when you are upset sometimes result in a shocking change in behaviour, and attitude.

Words and reactions that should never be found among friends soon become the order of the day. After awhile no one seems to know what their boundaries are in word, thoughts and actions.

Then you are in for a very rough ride.The love of God is the boundary of a happy and successful marriage/relationship.

The boundaries are there as checks and balances to help you know, what is right and what should not be tolerated by both of you.

The boundaries are there to protect and preserve you as well as the beauty and joy of your marriage. It is your responsibility to know these and develop patterns that would help you to keep operating within them even when you are under intense pressure.

When you step out of the boundary of love, acknowledge what you did as wrong and find your way back.

The boundaries are there for your good and happiness. In your words, thoughts and actions inside your your boundary you have patience, kindness, unity, humility, courtesy, selflessness, gentleness, forgiveness, advertising strengths, and loyalty.

Choose any of this and you are fine but the moment any of you steps of this boundary you should have a way of calling each other back to the order of love.

The other side of the boundary are off-limit, whenever you find yourself here you are wrong, there are no excuses, you might have a reason but it is never justified. The boundaries are there to help you make the best of your marriage.

You canít always trust your feelings but you can be sure anytime you operate within the boundaries of Godís love you sow seeds that will help you have heaven on earth.

Examine your words, thoughts and actions, are they within love-boundaries? Test yourself when you face a challenge or are under pressure and begin to do what you need to do to express yourself with words and actions within the love of God no matter what.

HONOR AND RESPECT

Thursday, April 07, 2011

The Word of God commands the husband and wife to honour each other. It is much easier to submit to someone you love and respect, who honours you and looks out for your good.

Letís take the example of Jesus, He calls everyone to give their hearts to Him, serve Him and worship Him, but He begins by demonstrating a selfless love towards mankind.

Honour begets honour and respect begets respect. Some treat their spouses so badly and still expect to be treated with love and respect, NO, it wonít work.

Make your marriage an haven of love, be the first to show respect whether you are alone or in public. Speak to and treat one another the way you would love to be treated. Speak to and act towards your spouse the same ways God relates to you and your relationship would attract the presence of God.

Words are very powerful, speak gentle and kind words, learn to control your temper, when you are angry, say very few words as possible and whenever you say the wrong thing, be quick to apologise, you will never be wrong for apologising.

Change the atmosphere in your home to one filled with the love of God. Treat one another with humility and the fear of God.

Respect and honour your spouse the way you would love to be respected and honoured and you would reap a harvest of great love and joy.

Don't Give Up

Wednesday, April 06, 2011

After dealing with the same issue for such a long time, and you may have reached the point where you are about to give in, thinking things probably would never get better.

We have a word for you, do not give up, commit your heart to trusting God. What the situation demands is God's wisdom, humbly ask the Lord to give you wisdom on what to do.

Trust God for wisdom in every step you take. God knows exactly what you ought to do. Remember God uses the really simple things to confound the wise. Trusting God enables and empowers you to succeed and overcome.

The word of God says God gives wisdom abundantly, freely and generously to those who ask him (James 1). Have you sked him for some?

Wisdom will bring you strength and success in areas you have struggled with little or no result.

God wants you to come to a deeper level of love and trust in Him, which would produce awesome power and breakthrough in your marriage.

As you wait and seek God's wisdom He will reward you greatly, He knows exactly what you need to do. Your marriage is blessed of God to succeed.

Ask God to take over all your plans and lead you into victory.

Proverbs 3 vs 5; 1Cor 15 vs 57

    Even with faith, it can take courage and devotion to truly give our problems to God. We have been taught to 'fix them' and try as we might sometimes, we don't have the strength to succeed.

As always, you touch my heart so deeply. You are such a great Sparkfriend, and when your blogs show up on my feed, I know I am going to feel renewed by what you share.

Lots of love to you!
