I wrote this over at my other blog Pushing Forward with Grace but felt moved to share it here since we do have a Grace section! I hope you enjoy it. 🙂
Now that I am finished with it I would recommend it to anyone, even if you do not drink coffee. It includes recipes, craft ideas, tidbits about coffee drinks, and a great many other things about God’s Word. Lucky for me I was able to walk through it with a group of other ladies but it could easily be done on your own!
Now back to that graphic and why I created it for myself. I wanted to have easy access for a reminder from areas of the Bible. Some of the relationships in my life are stagnet, not comfortable, flourishing, open, comfortable, or have just gone by the wayside. But today I’d like to talk about one of the most important relationships I have in my life.
The one with my spouse, my husband of 14 years.
When this session was presented before me it was a good thing. At the time I wasn’t so sure because things were stressful in that very important relationship I mentioned before. No need to air my dirty laundry or share more than my hubs is comfortable with. Just know that reading through creating something in me to focus on changing my responses. I’m still a work in progress and so is he. To date, I have not been able to sit down and visit with him about this session. The farmer is too busy and it’s okay, we will when time allows. I have it on the top of our “to do” list! But I see the help it has given our relationship already, without him evening knowing what it’s about!
When I walked out of the Monday night bible study the night we did this session I saw things differently. One thing I realized is that it’s a duty as a Christian to have those difficult conversations with others. Am I scared? Yep. Will I pray on it? Yep. Have I strayed from my faith before? Yep. Do I still struggle with things today? Yep. Have I repented? Yep. Am I forgiven? Yep.
Psst….. you can too. Jesus loves you.
Now, feel free to save the graphic or print it off for personal use. I plan too.
Grace is a gift,
