Eternal Trust

Do you ever feel like you’re getting tired or winded?

This life giving journey that we are on is not a short sprint.  It is a lifetime marathon.  We gain greater and greater stamina from the storms that we endure.  When you think that you can’t get threw something trust in God’s strength.

Replace your fairy tale expectation with a promise filled future anchored in the power of His redeeming love.  Remember that your hope and joy is not reliant on other people’s behavior.  You can’t control their choices.  You can’t prevent life difficulties, but you can trust Jesus to walk with you through any trial.

Eternal Hope

Have you ever heard your mom say, “this too shall pass?”

I used to hate it when my mother said this.  If the saying seems old-fashioned think of it as time tested.  My mom said this to me when I was upset with something as a girl.  I’ve long since forgotten those temporary teenage trials, but I remember her words of truth.

What are you going through that if you just endure the present trial you’ll get to the other side? Try not to over stress and try not to take that perspective that’s so temporary and remember those word, “this too shall pass.”  Trials are temporary, but God is eternal hope.

Eternal Joy

Are you searching for things to make you happy in life?

Rather than happiness what we need is faith filled joy.  Happiness is a fleeting feeling, but joy runs deeper. Happiness is based on the ever changing circumstances in your life, but joy finds its source in the deep eternal fountain that comes from God himself.

You can be filled with the joy of God even int he midst of pain.  Joy is the sweetness of His presence.  Go deeper than a search for happiness.  Find joy that is eternal.

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

Romans 15:13

Anchored on Jesus

What is your life anchored on?

During the stress filled times of life we really need to know who we believe in and who we trust in.  If you try to anchor your marriage on whether or not you feel happy you’re headed for shipwreck.

In North America there’s too much of this fantasy of the perfect romantic marriage and it’s perpetuated by fiction. These Hollywood tails of happiness do not play out what it’s like to live in a breathing relationship of intimacy.

Anchor your life and relationship on the steadfast and eternal love of Jesus Christ. He will keep you through all of the storms of life.

“We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, where our forerunner, Jesus, has entered on our behalf.”

Hebrews 6:19

Abundant Life

Do you struggle with discouragement?

The enemy wants to discourage you.  He wants to destroy you and your relationships.  We know from Scripture that the thief does not come except to steal and to kill and to destroy, but Jesus came to bring life and that we may have it more abundantly.

This verse carries both a warning and a promise.  The warning is watch out you have a very real enemy.  He seeks to steal, to kill and to destroy.  The enemy attacks during those times of stress when life is overwhelming, but Jesus promises abundant life.

Just like Jesus went to the cross and came out the winner so can you!

Overcome Stress

Do you find yourself stressed throughout the day?

Stress is the strain and pressure from life.  It creates physical mental tension in our bodies.  We can become overcome by worry and anxiety.  As humans we can only bear an overload of stress in life for so long until something gives way.

Like a rubber band stretched beyond its capabilities. Your marriage can be like that and can snap and break.  As Christians we don’t mean to be in denial, but sometimes we use our faith filled perspective to overlook the realities of stress.  A practice that may not be healthy.  Rather than burying stress or pretending that it doesn’t exist, a better tactic is acknowledging it and looking to God to help.

Celebrate the Difference

Have you ever noticed that men and women are different?

Not only do men and women communicate differently, we think differently and we behave differently.  We react to stress differently.  We have different emotional, spiritual and physical needs.

Opposites Often Attract

Wayne and I are complete opposites. I was attracted to his kind, loving, gentle ways. He was already a pastor when I met him at a church camp. When he pulled out the guitar and sang worship songs, I realized that I had met someone who loved Jesus even more than I did. The way his blue eyes twinkled when he smiled won my heart.

He was attracted to my life of bold obedience to Christ. Although I was young, I already knew that I was called to a life of full time ministry. Under the stars, around the camp fire, the spark of love began and has continued after 32 years of marriage.

Keep the Fires of Love Burning

Building a relationship that lasts requires humility.  You can meditate and magnify your spouses weakness every day, or you can celebrate the difference. We need to gain fresh insight into our differences.  This will help us to have living,loving,forgiving relationships when our spouse doesn’t respond the way that we think he or she should.  God made us different so let’s enjoy it.
