Never leave your partner behind...

Friday, May 17, 2013

I loved the movie "FIREPROOF" and now that mom and I are going through this evil being called dealing with cancer...together...I have been quick to judge and I am finding I have a very short fuse when it comes to dealing with our relationship.

This morning I have started reading the book version of the movie and it has truly opened my eyes. Not to get all preachy and religious on here, but, I never thought the lord was listening when I truly needed him to.

Now I know that I just wasn't listening to HIM. And for that I am sorry.

I will actually start this "LOVE DARE" in 2 weeks...but, today's passage was on finding peace in your relationship and meaning.

That being said the book stated that if the occasion arises to say things in anger to your partner...choose to say nothing at all instead.

So far it is working for me as I am just letting mom sleep today.

We shall see how this works.

Psalm 23...Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil...for I know that YOU...Lord...are with me, your rod and staff they shall comfort me and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

Have a blessed day spark people.

    I so realte to your blog, not sure how many years I had the same problem until I, also, realized I was not listening to him. That voice in your mind late at night when everyone else is asleep or early morning when no one else has woken up - that is God helping me to sort through whati is troubling me. some times I am not even sure how he knew what to talkto ma about cause I had no idea it was! LOL

Failing to keep trying means you gave up and God's people are not quitters!
