Run to Christ and Be Cleansed

Cheryl Sin

The inclination of my flesh to sin says, you could have orchestrated these events better. If he really cared how your day went he wouldn’t have allowed these things to go wrong, maybe I should just run the show aka desire to rule over you. My mind and heart turn into the accuser of the brethren. I hate that my own mind and emotions are so deceptive and manipulative. I can agree fully with the Prophet Jeremiah when he says:

“The heart is more deceitful than all else And is desperately sick; Who can understand it?”

Quid Pro Quo

Cheryl Family

One thing is certain, no one can see the sin of your husband more clearly than you. We each have pockets of sin, and in marriage killing sin frequently is a joint effort. Because our husbands are sinners, they do not always think, act, or respond in a way that we agree with. Likewise, because we are also sinners we can be tempted to respond in kind when we our husbands have done something that has left us feeling disappointed or dissatisfied. It is important that we do not live out our marriages using the principle of equivalent retaliation. This is when you love him or treat him well based off of your estimation of his performances. He does well and pleases you, you treat him well and please him. Tit for tat. He behaves poorly or doesn’t perform his duties properly, and you punish him by being withholding of your love and kindness.

Prepare Your Hearts, Prepare Your Home

Cheryl Uncategorized

Just as we prepare ourselves and our hearts for worship, we can prepare ourselves and our homes to serve our husband. Our husbands have been given as heads over us, they are our protective covering against the world, the devil, and our flesh. They are the representatives of Christ over us, and the way that we serve our husbands should be identical to how we would serve Christ himself.

What A Privilege: Worker at Home

Where is this place that we look to go when the world is too loud and too harsh? Where is this place our child wants to go when they are too long tired and hungry? Where is this place that God has set for families to dwell and strive together for His glory? This is the home.

Suffering: Darkness to Light

Shellie Church, Uncategorized 1 Comment

As new Christians we can sometimes not think rightly about some things, according to God’s Word. We bring into our Christian walk presuppositions that don’t always align with what God’s Word says. I think the subject of suffering is one of those things. We go through a major transformation of our hearts and minds. But many times, our first battle …
