Delight yourself in the Lord;
and He will give you the desires of your heart.
Ask yourself what your mate would want if it was
obtainable. Commit this to prayer, and
start mapping out a plan for meeting some (if not all) of their desires, to
whatever level you possibly can.
Right now, I know my husband’s dream is to sell the farm and
buy a house. This is not something I can do for him, but it is something I can
pray about and we have both been praying about this. I feel a lot closer to
hubby spiritually, since the weekend. Our drive back and talking about the Lord
and all the wonderful things He is doing in our lives, seemed to have pulled us
I made mention of it during a Skype messages to him to say
how bubbly I feel about us since the weekend, he said he felt the same.
I will keep praying on the farm/house but I will also pray
that God reveal anything (dream) to me that I could fulfil for hubby. I try in
any way to put his wants and needs before my own.
In one of our many conversations about Christ on Sunday, I
mentioned how we keep on sinning, even when we know it is wrong, we sometimes
do it without realizing. I asked hubby what he thought what happens to us when
we sin, but die before we repent. Last night I got the following scripture in
my devotion time.
News Translation (GNT)
14 We know that the Law is
spiritual; but I am a mortal, sold as a slave to sin.15 I do not understand what I
do; for I don't do what I would like to do, but instead I do what I hate.16 Since what I do is what I
don't want to do, this shows that I agree that the Law is right.17 So I am not really the one
who does this thing; rather it is the sin that lives in me.18 I know that good does not
live in me—that is, in my human nature. For even though the desire to do good
is in me, I am not able to do it.19 I don't
do the good I want to do; instead, I do the evil that I do not want to do.20 If I do what I don't want
to do, this means that I am no longer the one who does it; instead, it is the
sin that lives in me.
21 So I find that this law is at work: when I want to do what is
good, what is evil is the only choice I have.22 My inner being delights in the law of God.23 But I see a different law at work in my body—a law that fights
against the law which my mind approves of. It makes me a prisoner to the law of
sin which is at work in my body.24 What an unhappy man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is
taking me to death?25 Thanks be to God, who does this through our Lord Jesus Christ!
This, then, is my condition: on my own I can
serve God's law only with my mind, while my human nature serves the law of sin.
