For years I wanted Jim to be my everything. When he didn’t deliver I didn’t handle it well. I wanted Jim to be my knight in shining armor. Now I know that I do have a knight in shining armor. His name is Jesus! Now I know there is a better way. I often tell women this, “God is the cake, Jim is the icing.” What do I mean by that? God really is enough. He fills my soul. He pours His love into my heart. God is the cake. Jim is the icing. Sometimes I have cake without icing. It’s still cake! It still tastes great. It’s great when Jim meets my needs. It’s great when we have a good conversation or a sweet time together. But if he doesn’t, I still have my cake. Rather than looking horizontally for Jim to be my everything, I look vertically, I look up. God truly is my everything. He is enough! My relationship with Him is strong. He listens! He hears my every thought. He loves me! He is always available, never too tired or too distracted. Isn’t that what you yearn for?
Are you struggling in your marriage? Do you wish there was some help? I want to invite you to a seminar on Saturday February 10th, 2018 from 10am to 2pm at Hoffmantown Church in Albuquerque. The cost is only $15 which includes lunch. The seminar title is Marriage Myth busters. There will be skits, humor, teaching from the Bible and some music. If you are interested go click on this link. I found the registration a bit of a challenge but don’t give up. There is also childcare provided ($5 a child up to a maximum of $15). Deadline for registration and childcare registration is February 7th. Jim and I will be teaching some of the lessons we learned as we rebuilt our relationship.
What are some of the cultural myths we will be tackling? “If my spouse loved me they would make me happy”, “I need to protect my heart so I don’t get hurt again”, “I’ll be happy when…..”, “I am in such a bad marriage, wouldn’t it be best just to give up on it and get a divorce?” “My spouse should be more like me, think like me, like what I like. Only then will there be harmony in the home.” If you have heard yourself say or think these things, or if you have heard others, come to the seminar! Bring your friends! I would love to see you there.
