Forgive Now

If you wait ’til they deserve it or ask forgiveness, that robs you of precious time you could be full of peace and joy and it robs God of your full service and worship. It is also selfish and prideful to withhold forgiveness for it shows God you are not thankful for His gift of forgiveness grace. Forgive now. Right now. If you don’t feel you can, do it anyway and ask God for help as you do. This shows humbleness to God and obedience which He always honors. And He forgives us lavishly ONLY as we forgive others. Stop living in the painful past of wrongs done against us. Be grateful to God for all the blessings you may not have attended to by your unforgiveness and forgive now and live a beautiful life right now. Let it go. Stop trying to control something evil and keep sinning by not forgiving. Forgive now. It will make your life soooooo much sweeter and free. God will help as soon as you decide to do it and ask Him for help. Join the peace and joy life God intended. His grace is sufficient for all your needs.😄❤❤❤

Do the Best You Can

People are human and very changeable. Sometimes you can do everything right and they will still be mad and hate you. Sometimes you do everything wrong and you pretty much end up with the same results. Sometimes people just choose to sin against you constantly and there is nothing that can be done. Except. Except to realize that it is not you who they sin against. Sin is against God. I have to remind myself of that. My sins are against God. Sins against me are against God. You can not make someone be good when they don’t want to be. However, our accepting and internalizing their own rebellion against God is a sin of pride on our part. Think about our magnificent Messiah. He was wrong millions of times and yet committed no wrong back or even defended himself. Why? Because he realized full well that they were so king against God and were ignorant that He was God in flesh. “Forgive them, Father, for they don’t know what they are doing.” And we need to say the same thing our Lord said. Those in perpetual sin are under the willing acceptance of lie upon lie to make it okay. They out of ignorance and a choice to be ignorant of who they are really sinning against do not realize what they are doing. Or they don’t want to accept the truth that there is an eternal punishment for those that reject God. When we live our lives, we must be ever mindful of our own actions, which is enough to handle without playing mommy to another grownups actions. We are supposed to do the right thing, not sin against God to the best of our ability. Everyone is responsible for their own walk in life. We may need help or companionship but in the end, we have to do the best we can ourselves. We are responsible for the talents given us. We are responsible to serve and worship and teach and help. Why? It is against society at this moment socially in many ways, but this personal spiritual responsibility is the heart of God’s kingdom. We do not work for me but for the Lord. We serve Him. We must do that and not worry about what other people are doing.

Speaking to Wives

Your husband loves you. He may not always do so perfectly, but when he loves you consistently, it is a big deal and should be respected. When your husband thinks of calling or texting you during the day with his one-thing-at-a-time mentality, it is a big deal and should be respected. When he picks up his dirty clothes and washes every day to not stink, it is a big deal and should be respected (because he probably wouldn’t otherwise). When he helps with the kids or shows your son how to do anything, it is a big deal and should be respected. Of all the women in the world (and there are quite a few), he chose you to marry and spend the rest of his life with. That is a big complement, a big deal and deserves respect. When he chose to marry you, he expressed his belief in you that he thought you would be an excellent mother of his children. That is huge. He thought you were gorgeous. He wanted you. He enjoys your companionship. That is all a big deal and worthy of respect. No man is perfect. We all understand this. No woman is either, to be honest. However, our husbands will rise to the level of respect we show them. Your husband will lead given the opportunity and encouragement to do so and he will flourish under your love and moral support. When we marry, we become one unified team. Errors occur, sins occur, battles occur in the spirit realm and workplaces. These things can be worked out with good conversations, lots of love and understanding, mutual respect and forgiveness. Arm your marriage with these things and guard them well. The closer you draw to God, the fewer demands you will have on your spouse and the closer you will be to your husband.
