I kept it light throughout the day, but I was praying every
moment I got. I searched myself, finding comfort only in Christ.
When hubby got to work he Skype’d me for our morning check
in, and he was quite pleasant. I kept it light and never made mention of how
hurt I was by everything that was said last night.
During the day, I did a lot of small things I wanted to get
done with work and it was satisfying. Praising for everything I accomplished. I
felt God so close to me during the day, in everything I did. My co-worker asked
a few times if I was ok, she said I was very quiet. (Be still – thanks Sean)
and I was, and I found comfort in Christ.
In the evening I was busy with everyday things that needed
to be done. Cooking, washing etc. the entire day I was praying about how I could
show my husband that I cherished him. God was silent in this regard. Hubby was
late again, but I didn’t phone him, thought I’d give him space, and hoping it
was my way of showing him I cherish him. But no, that was not it.
When he did come home, he was loving and kind. Hugging me
tightly, sneaking a kiss just about every chance he got. It was a total 180 for
the night before. I embraced it. After our prayer and devotion time, we got
snuggled up to each other, trying to warm up a bit, then our Son started
crying. I was about to get up when hubby told me he’d attend to him, so I can
sleep, because I let him sleep in every morning. As he went out to see to our
son, God gave me my answer to the Dare. I moved over to my husband’s side of
the bed, and laid there, to keep his side of the bed warm for when he returns.
He was gone quite a long time, and I had fallen asleep, but when he returned, I
moved over to the colder side of the bed, letting him get into the warm cosy
side. I myself was boiling (as I always am at night), so he snuggled up and
thanked me for keeping his place so nice and warm. That was it, my way to show
my spouse I cherish him.
He pulled me in close to him to get more of my heat, and he
hugged and kissed me. It made me feel really good. Then everything of last
night was a distant (bad) memory, because in that moment he wanted me just as
much as I wanted him.
Thank you God, for giving me peace, comfort and everything
1 Then the Spirit led Jesus
into the desert to be tempted by the Devil.2 After spending forty days
and nights without food, Jesus was hungry.3 Then the Devil came to him
you are God's Son, order these stones to turn into bread.
4 But Jesus answered,
The scripture says,
Human beings cannot live
on bread alone, but need every word that God speaks.
5 Then the Devil took Jesus to Jerusalem, the Holy City, set him on
the highest point of the Temple,6and said to him,
If you are God's Son,
throw yourself down, for the scripture says,
God will give orders to
his angels about you;
they will hold you up with their hands,
so that not even your feet will be hurt on
7 Jesus answered,
But the scripture also
Do not put the Lord your
God to the test.
8 Then the Devil took Jesus to a very high mountain and showed him
all the kingdoms of the world in all their greatness.9
All this I will give you,
the Devil said,
if you kneel down and
10 Then Jesus answered,
Go away, Satan! The
Worship the Lord your God
and serve only him!
11 Then the Devil left Jesus; and angels came and helped him.
This passage made me realise it is not just me who is
tempted and taunted by satan. Christ himself had to endure the evil one! I
praise and thank God, for always being there and I know I can withstand all the
temptations if I keep my focus on Christ and seek my comfort in Him. Only He
can fill my voids and keep me strong. I will lead my heart to Him, always.
Seek out His wisdom every moment. His plan is perfect and if we desire His will in our lives He ensures grace upon us.
PRAISE GOD!!!!!!! He blessed you with a beautiful day! All things are possible with GOD!
