Wisdom From the Word

“Don’t lose your grip on love and loyalty. Tie them around your neck; carve their initials on your heart.” – Proverbs 3:3 (The Message)

“Christ has set us free to live a free life. So take your stand! Never again let anyone put a harness of slavery on you.” – Galatians 5:1 (The Message)

“Love never gives up… Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others…” – I Corinthians 13:4,5b (The Message)

Keep Me Real, Lord!

“Lord, help me to keep moving towards my partner with a loving attitude expressed in words and actions. When I am disappointed or hurt by my spouse’s choices or lack of them, help me to express those emotional realities in a way that communicates love to my partner as well as a desire for change. If I start to distance from my mate, help me to catch myself and to move back towards him/her. Thank you for answering my prayer.”
