If a house is divided against
itself, that house will not be able to stand.
Talk with your spouse about establishing healthy rules of
engagement. If your mate is not ready
for this, then write out your own personal rules to "fight" by. Resolve to abide by them when the next
Like I mentioned before, we don’t really fight and we tend
to deal with our disagreements through humour. We have however over the course
of time established healthy rules, and we don’t ever fight in public and also
try not too in front of the kids. With our daughter being special needs, she is
very sensitive to conflict and so we don’t want to upset her.
I also have this rule about not going to bed angry, but
since the love dare, I have learned to keep my tongue if it is for selfish
We had a good day. We still do not know the extent of the
damage to the car, but we are praying on it, that it will be something we can
afford. An estate agent phoned my husband yesterday, they have someone who is
interested in buying the farm, so we are praying on that as well, if it is the
will of God for it to come through for us now, that it will happen like that.
Praise God for the wonderful day we had.
I phoned the therapist that I wanted to make the appointment
with, and she wants me to send her an e-mail, with my life’s story, so to
speak, She said it could save me a few sessions up front, if I do it this way.
She also says, that people are more open in their mails, because sometimes they
hold back after they meet her, because she is a Rev.Dr. and much older than
what I am, so she thinks I might be shy to say everything to her face. So I’m
busy drafting the email on that. Wow, what a journey down memory lane. She said
it will also be part of the healing process. My appointment is set for Friday 6
I pray on this that God will guide me to be as honest and
truthful about everything in my mail and also in my session.
My word received for today:
Isaiah 48:17 – I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what
is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.
"I also have this rule about not going to bed angry, but since the love dare, I have learned to keep my tongue if it is for selfish reasons" This is a great reminder. Thank you!
Praying for your guidance with the email to the therapist. I think you are going to find it pretty liberating once all said and done. Just seek His words. They will flow through you by Him!
The bible tells us not to let the sun go down on our anger. It doesnt say we have to talk things about before bed, just that we have to forgive and let it go prior to.
God will come through for you, but it may not be in the way you are asking.
Your word that you recieved today is important. Rely on His teachings and gentle nudgings.
Forgiveness is one of the hardest things to do. But with Christ and seeing His forgiveness in us should make it easier.
Be as open as you can in the email, things cannot be prayed upon or talked about if not open.
Praise God for your great day! I pray God will lead you, give your strength as you start this new journey with the therapist. I pray it will bring much healing for you. Just remember to stay focused on God. He will show you the way!
