Lord, thank you that you have blessed me in Christ with every spiritual blessing. Help me today to take possession of what is already mine by faith through Jesus.
Oh! How we love the forgiveness of God for our sins, but hate to be called by God to forgive those who have sinned against us.
I thought I heard from God asking me to delete this blog. 🙁
Friday started with a new colleague who turned irrational, went berserk and raised his voice at me for nothing… this is all the energy I have left at the end of the day. First time in my three years in this office, encountering this.
someone is not really nice inside, but just trying hard to act nice. And one day, the true-self exploded dramatically.
“We met in church as teenagers. We were best friends at first. We’d complete each other’s sentences. We got married two weeks after she graduated from UCLA, and we never stopped moving after that. We had our first child while we were in law school. Then we both had to pass the bar. After that we had to find jobs, and we had a second kid. At some point we just got into survival mode. It didn’t feel like we were growing a relationship anymore. It just felt like we were picking up the pieces of decisions we had made. We kept telling ourselves that things would get better once life settled down. We’d say: ‘Let’s just get through law school. Or let’s just get through finals. Or let’s just get through this move.” We never communicated things that were bothering us. After thirteen years, we finally decided that the time was now. We wanted to finally be what we thought we were going to be while we were dating. Counseling was hard. There was a lot of unspoken anger and resentment to unpack. But we’re so glad we went because things are better now. And we feel like we’re growing again.”
Never give up.
