Today Reminder – 12 August 2014 (Day 8 – Return to Proverbs)

A reminder for today
Drink water from your own well—share your love only with your wife. (Proverbs 5:15) 

In today’s world divorce has become as easy as getting take-away food. I guess we have gotten lazy at trying and trying again. We give up when our picture of life fades and we feel that we have been robbed of our happiness. I always say that love is a two way street. It needs to give and receive. The enemy knows this just as well and he will do anything in his power to block this street and cause a bottleneck. Sometimes we give up and seek comfort elsewhere and this is when our congested street becomes a thorn in the flesh. It is then when we enter dangerous ground. Everything in life requires hard work and dedication. Our faithful life towards our Lord is one of constant struggles and battles, yet we should continue to persevere and follow His ways. In the same sense we should dedicate our marriages to Him and follow His guidance. We can never forgive too much and we can never try too much. When God brought you together He had a plan and His plans are perfect. Why do we question Him when we know this?  Let your wife be a fountain of blessing for you. Rejoice in the wife of your youth. She is a loving deer, a graceful doe. May you always be captivated by her love. An evil man is held captive by his own sins; they are ropes that catch and hold him (verses 18 – 23).

In every man there is a fool and in every woman there is a fool, but in every man there is a king and in every woman there is a queen. When the fool talks, the fool answers, but when the queen talks, the king answers (Pastor Lindie McCauley).

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus
