I have not posted or better yet have not wanted to post since Valentines Day for reasons I rather keep to myself just so I will not sound foolish. But I will say that for most who have read my blog and know how to read between the lines, then you must know that my marriage is in some what turmoil and has been for to long a while but that's my trial and also my tribulation for my past sins. today I thank God that I have learn to trust Him and that He knows everything. God I do know has a reason for everything that goes on in our life's and why He lets and has us go through certain episodes or experiences.
My wife I love and forgive because as the word of God says in Ephesians chapter 6 verse 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
and also the word of God in Ephesians 5:25 and 28 tells us husbands ........
25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her,
28 So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself.
Believe I have loved my wife for over 30 years but nothing like I love her today that I have the love of Jesus in my heart. Far from perfect I have been even as a Christian I wish I had done some things differently.. I wish I had trusted God with my life a lot more but again all of our steps are directed by God and He already knew my mistakes long before I committed them..
Today I will end with a poem I wrote inspired from the teaching of my pastor on the topic of
Oh how easy it must be, to walk away and bother not fight
for what is yours but most of all, for what is honor and right
Leave behind a lot of what you always loved and those you need
for the little that you want, you betrayed yourself for greed
because lust of the eye, is something you constantly have to feed
Never satisfied is bondage and by your own might can't be freed
for life produces a harvest, according to what you call your seed
Oh how easy you trade character, for a worthless reputation
judging yourself by your possessions, you have lost realization
thinking much of your pride, only brings you to false assumptions
That all is not vanity, is to live in a mind of serious contention
ignoring self allegations, because yourself you have mesmerized
loosing all sense of reason, your person, you have compromise.
