So it's been a while since I have written! Sorry, have been REAL busy with school, and trying to fit home, gym, and church in my schedule. Well see this is exactly what I want to talk about. Did you notice how I listed my priorities here?
4) and the Church
I have it ALL backwards again. Those who know me, know my testimony as a WIFE! And those who don't know me, will read about my testimony soon. See when I first married, I had my priorities out of place, which led to a very hard beginning, and it looks like I have done it again. But I have been listening to this awsome women of God, Ruth Harvey. God has used her preaching to speak to my heart and put me on a path to discover my Utmost Highest Calling.
God brought me out of darkness, to shine, not to sit on the side and hide among the clouds. (Hope what I'm saying makes sense, the thoughts come in Spanish, and I'm translating them as I write.) I know that I am not yet complete. See I once heard a preacher say that when we are asking for healing, we should asked to be whole again. God wants our faith to be like that of the woman with the blood issue. He wants to make us WHOLE, in mind, spirit, and body.
"And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee WHOLE; go in peace, and be WHOLE of thy plague." Mark 5:34
So why am I not yet complete, or whole? God said "Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh." Genesis 2:24
If we are one, then if my husband is down, so am I, and vice-versa. My marriage went through a very tough time, which I came out of much more victorious than my husband. He strayed away from God during that time, and has yet to return, like the progidal son. I will be WHOLE, when my marriage is not only healed, but made WHOLE with his return to Christ.
Now what does that have to do with my utmost highest calling and my priorities? Well first and farmost, if I am trying to win my husband back for the Glory of God, I have to begin to shine in my home. I have to be the light among the darkness, and for me it begins in ME. Now I know many will say that my husband already knows the way, and it's his responsibility to return to God. But "the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I
will make a help meet for him." Genesis 2:1 I am my husband's hel meet, and not just physically, spiritually too.
