Love is the greatest gift God ever gave

Love is the greatest gift God ever gave man. Love  is not wanting to go anywhere without her. Love is when you feel depressed and sickly without her. Love is caring for her physicaly and emotionally. It’s telling her everyday anytime anywhere anyhow for no just reason that you love her. Love is telling her you want to spend the rest of your life with her. Love is wanting to hold her in your arms until the end of time. Love is being helplessly and deeply in love with her and knowing your love and feelings for her will never change/end.

Don’t expect more from a person than they are capable and you won’t be let down. Fully rely on God with all your heart for he is love, joy, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Gal. 5:22). Man will always fall short of the glory of God because we are flawed. Dont rely on another for happiness that can only be found in Abba father. While man is full of sin, a lustful heart, greed, pride, and the ability to hurt one another God is love and always the same. He is our refuge. Fully rely on God in all things and you will be made whole.

The Arithmatic of Love

In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything, and two minus one equals nothing. -Mignon McLaughlin

Have you been hurt? Or have you hurt someone you love? Are you the antagonist or the protagonist?

Does this complete your insecurities to make one feel small? What have you gained?

Once a heart is hardened can it be made whole again? Have you afflicted a woman’s heart so she has been make vulnerable to you? Have you chosen your words carefully or effortlessly? Were the words that gave self-gratification worth the pain inflicted on both you and her?

To what length will you go to earn her trust again? If you have hurt a loved one seek Gods council, repentance, and ask for His help to stop hurting the one you love. Ask him to heal her heart and make changes so you don’t lose the one you love. Don’t let Satan have a foothold and create lasting strongholds in your relationship.

Ten ways to have a happy husband

  1. Exercise and eat healthy. This is good for both, husband and wife. Exercise keeps you fit so you can look good for your spouse. Eating healthy makes you feel good and makes you a happier wife. Both keep you looking younger longer.
  2. Keep a clean home. He works all day and shouldn’t have to come home to a messy home if you stay home. If you don’t stay home keep a cleaning plan so the two of you can work together to keep your home clean. If you have children give them chores and let them help out too.
  3. Laughter is medicine for the soul. Laughter heals. Enjoy one another and keep laughing. Watch a funny movie together, tell jokes, tickle and play with one another. Keep laughter in your marriage.
  4. Be his friend. When he leaves for work tell him to have a nice day. Give him a hug good-bye. When he comes home greet him with a smile and a hello. How was your day honey. Be sincere and listen to his response. He works all day to support your home. Respect him and make him feel good about coming home.
  5. If you stay home or get home before he does burn his favorite candles. Make your home smell good. It’s always inviting to walk into a cozy home that smells good. If you enjoy baking bake cookies. Cookies make a home smell yummy.
  6. Love him with all your heart. Don’t use sex as a weapon and don’t withhold sex from your spouse as punishment. This is damaging to a marriage.
  7. Dont nag at your husband. especially if he has to work over or if he’s a few minutes late. He doesn’t want to work late, but he surely wont want to come home if his wife is nagging as soon as he walks in the door.
  8. Give him praises often. Tell him he looks nice. At least once a day tell him something nice about him. Build him up and he will want to be a better husband and this will make you a happier wife.
  9. Have dinner ready and the table set before he walks in the door. Time spent at the table is priceless. Walking in the door to a home cooked meal makes a happy husband. If you work from home or are a homemaker this is easy. What if you work outside the home? Bring dinner home, and set the table when you get home. Do whatever works best for your family and lifestyle but make sure you sit together as a family for dinner. These moments build stronger relationships.
  10. Pray for your husband. Ask God to keep him from temptation of whatever sin is a challenge for him. Pray for his time spent at work and his health. Lift him up to the Lord and ask God to make him a good husband leader in your home.

Everyone who has been given much, much more will be asked.

I had a revelation today. Sometimes a revelation is meant for one person and other times its meant to be shared. I believe there are millions out there that this was meant to be shared.

Luke 12:47,48 reads; That servant who knows his master’s will and does not get ready or does not do what his master wants will be beaten with many blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.

The relevance of this scripture can never be more true than when a person has survived a near death experience or of one who lives with chronic pain. He prepares those who have been through much and endure much tribulation with His daily word, a direct line of communication through prayer.

For those who seek God in times of need draw nearer to him and know him more. For that we are blessed. God in turn will use your experience to bless and grow other’s faith. This is where the ‘from everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded’ and ‘from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.’

To recieve God’s blessing stay in his word daily, use that open line of communication through prayer, and show his love through your actions with others.

When one prayer isnt answered its because God has a greater plan.

I know God can take away cancer but sometimes He doesn’t. We have to understand there is a purpose for everything in our lives that happens. Good or bad, God is there. He carries us through the times we are too weak to walk this walk. I prayed for God to take away my cancer. You know those people who go to the dr. and are told they have cancer and return for another appointment and the cancer is gone. Yeah, I wanted that to be me! I prayed and asked God to please take it away. He is a God of miracles. He didn’t take mine away.

Was it because I lacked faith? Did I use up all my good prayers on other things that didn’t matter as much? Did God leave me? All these questions went through my head. No was the answer to all these. I had faith or I wouldn’t be seeking Him for help. God tells us to pray for everything. He didn’t leave me. I experienced Him throughout the illness and I still do. Some things happen because God has a greater purpose for us. I feel strongly I endured this so many will find salvation through Jesus Christ by my testimony. I have so many to share. When one prayer isnt answered it’s because God has a greater plan for us in the future. We don’t know what His plan is because we live in time. God is eternal.

When I started to recover I prayed and asked God to use me. I told Him I know the plans He has for me are great. I was still weak but strong-willed and wanted God to show me what I endured wasnt for vein. Within ten minutes of that prayer I received a phone call and my pastor wanted me to share my testimony in front of the church. This was a church of over 3,000 people. I couldn’t speak well because I had three-fourths of my tongue removed from cancer. I was so excited God answered my prayer so fast. That is a huge faith builder when God does this. All I had to do was make myself available and He used me.

My pastor contacted me the day after I gave my testimony. He said there was a man who visited our church that day. He didn’t go to church or believe in God. He wore leather, had long hair, had tattoos all over, and was a big tough guy. I’m not trying to stereotype because I know everybody needs jesus and there are plenty of people who go to church with tattoos. The man went to lunch with my pastor after church and told my pastor if I could go in front of the church and share my story fearlessly he wanted to know our God. He also told my pastor he was happy to see the love the church had for me.

Throughout the time I was sick God gave me so much. He was there when I needed Him the most. In this time He was sending people to me who needed to know Him. Because I had strong faith during this time I was and still am a living testimony of His love. I believe if one person came to know Christ through my illness it wasnt for vein. God used this time to grow my faith, bring others to know Him and make good changes in may people’s lives.

Holy Spirit

We are made for so much more than just life death and to receive the Holy Spirit. We are created to worship, love and serve God. To do this we must receive grace, walk in the spirit and listen carefully for direction from the Holy Spirit.

God still works miracles. I know because I am one!

Do you believe in miracles? To believe is and act of faith. To believe in current day miracles is proof of our obedience as an act of love for our Heavenly Father. He still works miracles. While some are healed of illness before a chance for treatment to be administered some are healed through treatment or the work of a Dr’s hands. I am living proof of a miracle. My diagnosis of cancer was six years ago. My prognosis was not good. I wasn’t expected to live. I had one of the fastest spreading cancers of the head and neck (squamous cell carcinoma). I prayed for a healing and expected to be healed before I had to undergo chemo, radiation, and surgery to remove most of my tongue and much of the inside of my throat. My healing came in the end. What I didn’t know at the time was the healing I was praying for came in a very unexpected way. After undergoing the treatments and a near death experience I experienced God in such a way I can share Him with many other people today. I am alive and my heart has been forever changed. I was nearly incapable of loving people or myself at the time of my diagnosis. I had a hardened heart. Today, I have an open heart and I am capable of loving again. Through a tough time in my life God drew me near to Him and my life was forever changed. I love again and I am so happy to share my testimony, faith, and love through Christ Jesus. I hope this touches someones heart today. Be blessed!

God, I miss her

But, God I miss her

My heart aches to see her

My heart is heavy

 

“Behold, I have given you all you need

life abundantly

with peace and joy

She was never yours to keep

Only to hold

and to love

She is mine

She is in my hands

Please do not worry for

I will hold her and protect her

all of her days

She forever belongs to me

With love,

Your God who loves you”
