Thy Will Be Done

-Daily Devotion-

“Thy will be done” is a call to arms. It is an offensive declaration of God’s protection and good plans for us. It is saying “not my will” and “not the devil’s will”.

What About Love?

Here are some of the things I’ve learned in maintaining a happy relationship, while growing spiritually, with Jesus as our rock. 🙂

 

Love and Know Jesus

2 Corinthians 6:14
“Do not be unequally yoked with non-beleivers.”

Both of you should know your identity and worth in Jesus Christ. Know that in Him, you are whole and that you don’t need a partner to acknowledge your physical, mental and emotional attributes. Love Jesus above all, and you’ll find it easy to love everyone else.

 

Pray together and for each other

Develop spiritual maturity together. The solution to every problem is in His Word. The blood of Jesus covers every believer and no work of the enemy shall ever prevail. Feed each other with words of encouragement that is grounded on the love of Jesus. Remind each other that you are God’s favorite and He makes all things work together for your good. Make God the rock of your relationship, that in your weakness, He is your strength.

Guard your heart

Love your partner with a faithful heart. When problems arise, don’t find an ally against your partner. Don’t find comfort from someone else. Internal problems should be discussed between the two of you first and foremost, and not with others who may not have the objectivity or maturity to give good advice. If you need comfort, peace or advice, do this: Seek comfort from Jesus, not from people who will say bad things about your partner/relationship. Seek peace from Jesus, not from thoughts that have not been proved. Seek advice from people who have experience with relationships AND who are spiritually mature.

Guard your heart, as well as your mouth. Respect each other, and refrain from hurting each other (with words or actions) when feeling extreme emotions. Don’t lash out when angry. Guarding your heart, is guarding your relationship.

Respect individuality

Set individual goals. And set goals for your relationship. It is important to maintain individuality so the two of you can learn from each other. Love is not possession. Love is not about controlling the other. Have different interests, have different friends. Trust that at the end of the day, the both of you will fall back into each other’s arms, with new stories and lessons to share.

My Strength

___

In a place so crowded
In the darkest of nights
In destructive chaos
In the deafening sound

In suffocating heat
In harsh environments
In ruthless transgressions
In false accusations

In lonesome solitude
In apparent unpeace
In failure and unease
Insurmountable fears

It’s Your face I seek
It’s Your warmth I need
In Your arms I’ll rest
My Father, my Strength.

I Am Fine

___
I must have cried a million times
I must have hurt more than you can count
I could have given up anytime

But He watches over me
He reaches out and heals my heart
His love covers me
And I am fine

I have won and celebrated
I have all that I need and more
Good has taken over most of my life

Because He watches over me
He reaches out and holds my heart
His love covers me
And I am more than fine

In ups and downs, high and low
I call upon the same
There is only one Name
Jesus, because of You
Everything will surely be fine

Lack thereof

I leaned on paper
but it was easy to wrinkle,
and eventually it tore

I leaned on plastic
but I could never be oblivious
the falseness was a bore

I leaned on glass
Oh, I was almost fooled
but it was never meant to last

Then I leaned on a rock
and I bled so much
But it wasn’t mine
Yet I refused to believe
I wanted it to be mine

___

It would take a shadow to know my heart
The constant push and pull that rips me apart
Screams that start as early as dusk
Why is it so hard to fulfill that one task?

___

Used all mediums to distract myself
But the truth is much too real to be covered up by anything else
