Love Changes, yet often stays the same. God calls us to love deeply, but to also to continue to grow. We cannot become stagnant in our lives; whether in marriage, raising our children or being a great employee.
We must step out and seek the best God has for us.
Life is to be lived to the fullest.
After 30 years of marriage, I am still learning more and more about our lives together and about Mike.
But more importantly, I am learning about myself.
From an 18-year-old wife, mom and daughter in law in one fell swoop, to a 48-year-old wife, mom, grandmother and daughter in law…
I have learned that God requires me to seek the best, even in the worst situations. My normal tendency is to look at the negatives instead of the positives, but that is something I was taught as a child. Tendency from genetics and environment to look at the negative.
Yet, God says to believe the best in all situations. Even when we think it is over, He can make it new.
He has done that for me in my relationships in many instances; especially in 2006 when we were on the verge of divorce.
Nothing is impossible with God. Luke 1: 37
I wanted a different marriage and a different life for myself as well as my family, yet often I failed.
Didn’t know any different, yet God has done a tremendous work in my life as well as my marriage.
How about you?
What did you learn from your growing up years that you carried over to your family and marriage?
What goals did you make for yourself in reference to your home life and relationships to have a different outcome?
I believe that God can change any willing person; whether a woman, man or child. God wants our hearts and also wants the best for us.
We will fall short at times, but that doesn’t mean we need to give up.
Keep the goal in your forefront.
Take steps each day to love more deeply, talk more sweetly and to forgive more easily.
Thankful today for the love of a good, Godly man, who has richly blessed me. He has believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself, but more importantly he has loved me when I wasn’t loveable.
Love you, Mike
