And what about us?

I discovered this fact from Nova yesterday on social media: Nearly 90% of all deep-sea species shine from within. image

Reading this begged the question, what about the human species? If 90% of deep-sea creatures are equipped with light to traverse the darkest depths of the sea, what about us humans? We need a light! We need light to see our way in dark places. We need light to energize our bodies and nourish our bones. We need inner light to propel us forward with hope when uncertainties abound. From whence cometh our light?

“Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path.”
Psalm 119:105

“Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of Life.” John 8:12

It’s a good day to start fresh

imageIt’s a good day to start fresh on “whatever”. The month of August is a transitional month. Mornings and evenings feel like fall in many places, students are preparing  for school and parents too. Change is totally in the air. So why not ride the momentum by applying this energy for transition to your life where it fits. Maybe you don’t have kids going to school, but you’ve meant to take a class in something that interests you. How about that home makeover project you’ve been thinking about? You could start small and make a change. Are you a creative? Did you start that latest project? What about your relationships, are they working? Can you effect a change in them for the better?  Take small steps, or crawl, just please don’t sit idle. Afterall, who should steer the handle bars of your life?

Your best

Have you done your very best? As a parent, as a wife or husband, in service or ministry? Have you done your best? Then let it be enough. Your best is enough. The Lord is not looking for perfection from you, He is that. Have you aligned yourself with His will for your life and done your best…. Up to the minute? Then relax, its harvest time!

Now, if you haven’t done your best, and the consequences are all around you, ask God to forgive you. Ask the “others” involved to forgive you as well, and get moving in the right direction for your life today. #Counsel4Living IMG_1244

Just a thought…

Use what you don’t like about your life and turn it into something beneficial.

Trouble in paradise

So, if you’re having trouble in your marriage today. Can you just take it easy a minute? If the two of you have reached an impasse in your communications, give the conversation some breathing room. Step away from the dialogue if it’s at a fevered pitch, and return to the conversation later.

Ladies this is especially for you… If your husband has shut down and won’t discuss the issue anymore, please don’t press in on him with insistent conversation. This won’t work. Back up and allow him space and time to process what has already been said. Tell him this is what you’re doing, then ask him to let you know when he’s ready to discuss the matter. Wow! That was a mouthful right there. Doing this will require self-control, which is necessary in a healthy marriage. If neither of you have self-control in a discussion, now is a good time to begin cultivating some. When you’re both rested and agree, re-open the dialogue in a neutral setting (a place where you’re both relaxed) with intent to resolve the matter.
