Marriage Talk


image

I have a great deal of friends who are happily AND unhappily married!!! However, we indeed have LASTING CONVERSATIONS and just talk for hours at a time – NO – I am not married but I used to be…….and knowing God, hearing God, knowing what you want and how things should be is a good START for any conversational piece…..

We have to stop asking of marriage what God never designed it to give — perfect happiness, conflict-free living, and idolatrous obsession.

Instead, we should be able to appreciate what God designed marriage to provide: partnership, spiritual intimacy and the ability to pursue God — together. So, what do you think is the most common misconception Christians have about marriage?

“Finding a ‘soul mate’ — someone who will complete us,” he says. “The problem with looking to another human to complete us is that, spiritually speaking, it’s idolatry. We are to find our fulfillment and purpose in God . . . and if we expect our spouse to be ‘God’ to us, he or she will fail every day. No person can live up to such expectations.”

Everyone has bad days, yells at his or her spouse, or is downright selfish. Despite these imperfections, God created the husband and wife to steer each other in His direction.

When your wife or husband forgives you . . . and accepts you, you SHOULD learn to receive God’s forgiveness and acceptance as well. In that moment, THEY ARE MODELING God , revealing God’s mercy and helping YOU to see with your own eyes a very real spiritual reality. That AGAPE love that Christ himself wants us to exhibit!

While it’s easy to see why God designed an other-centered union for a me-centered world, living that way is a challenge. So when bills pile up, communication breaks down and you’re just plain irritated with your husband or wife,  These reminders to help ease the tension:

  • God created marriage as a loyal partnership between one man and one woman.
  • Marriage is the firmest foundation for building a family.
  • God designed sexual expression to help married couples build intimacy.
  • Marriage mirrors God’s covenant relationship with His people.

This “YOUNG” – Woman is A Disgrace To Herself


Okay, you see I wrote that she was YOUNG but you can be young and still know manners, honor and respect! The way that she acted and talked to her husband’s family even BEFORE their nuptials was shocking!! I commend the husbands FATHER for taking a stand against BOTH of them.

It seemed like his father didn’t approve of the young lady but STILL wanted to support his son. However,  when the wife THOUGHT she could get away with disrespecting the dad too! He wasn’t having it and I’m sure he was hurt, disgusted and embarrassed that his son didn’t speak up in his behalf sooner. His son did say somethung finally, BUT. ……..

Do as little harm to others as you can; make any sacrifice for your true friends; be responsible for yourself and ask nothing of others; and grab all the fun you can. Don’t give much thought to yesterday, don’t worry about tomorrow, live in the moment, and trust that your existence has meaning even when the world seems to be all blind chance and chaos. When life lands a hammer blow in your face, do your best to respond to the hammer as if it had been a cream pie.

Life is a beautiful things in spite of all the horrid things that can take place in our lives….I have indeed FINALLY learned how to just be happy in life and where I am “in spite of”……..

On a lighter note…… being a lady is such a chore some days.. It reminds ne of a good workout!! Lol, No pain, No gain!! Check out my shoe action.. cute shoes but after 4 hours, it was surely time to find some tennis shoes, flip flops or slippers!

I am just thinking of what friendship means to me…..in MY CURRENT RANDOM MOMENT OF THINKING…… LOL Your friend can also be your sister and that is just as good right…..

This weekend, I had so much fun hanging with my girlfriends BUT HAD A BLAST WITH MY SISTER. I attended one of my girl pal’s wedding and it was beautiful….. she looked beautiful and it made me realize how much I too, want to be married again.

Being around friends and family is something that I can’t take for granted because my FAMILY goes up and down soo much! Attending weddings – well CHRISTIAN weddings allows me to feel the peace and love of God…it also reminds me of His promises …..there are more people getting divorced than getting married and it is sad…

Im praying my girl pal and her husband has at least 100 years of Godly wedded bliss!!! A great deal of people just do NOT take their vows seriously, let alone fear God like “they should” being honest….. Nonetheless, God is good and I love the Lord and ” I wont take it back”…… ( a slogan in the black church )

My post is random I know.. that’s because my mind is all over the place…mentally and emotionally. But I’m really in an awesome place in MY LIFE.
