Your Life - PRAISE Updates

 
A Little Wisdom I Picked Up
0 1

A little wisdom I picked up at a Family Life Weekend to Remember recently.

You’ve heard the term “50-50” marriage? On the surface that might sound just great. I’ll do half, you do half, and we’ll live “half-ily” ever after. Reality: It causes us to “keep score” on each other. Easy to see how that can bring frustration or holding back to “make it fair.” 

Solution? Put your full self into your marriage, or any other significant relationship of worth, at 110%. Focus on what you can pour into it, not just take. Be watchful for what you can do to bless the other, and then actually do it! 

“True love” is not what you feel, it’s what you do.

  • Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.
  • Oh friends, I have something powerful to share with you today. Something that really impacted me recently. I heard Jill Briscoe from World Relief speak at If:Gathering 2017 a couple weeks ago and she spoke about how she struggles with fear. Anyone relate to that? So said her whole life she has struggled with this fear and she was sharing about a situation where she was pleading with God to not have to do something. But, she kept hearing his prompting. So, she took a step forward IN FEAR and after taking the step the courage came. AFTER she took the step. She was not filled with courage and THEN took the step. She had to step forward first.
