Hey friends, how are you today? How was your week? Gabrielle of The Gabby Diaries and I have made the decision to go on a journey of becoming healthier. On her blog, she has decided to document her journey to weight loss. She tracks her exercise and what she eats, as a matter of fact, she shares with us a rundown of her day. You are welcome to join us as we undertake this journey, especially in this coronavirus time. Check out her daily blogposts, you won’t be disappointed.
At the beginning of this virus, many psychologists and therapists theorized that many relationships would not survive when they’re left together for drawn out lengths of time. In reality, what they are actually saying is this; most people in a relationship, couples and kids alike, cannot stand each other for a prolonged length of time.
Isn’t that sad? Instead of securing the bond of relationships when we’re placed together for great lengths of time, it rather tends to destroy relationships. Yet, they are not wrong, are they? These past few months have heightened the adversity found among people, including the people of God. Impatience and selfishness; a type of me(ism) have become the norm. Only the Bible is true, everything else is an opinion and everyone is entitled to their own opinions. Believe me, just because I don’t agree with your opinion about an issue, that does not give me the right to attack you personally.
An action comes out of the thoughts. What I think determines my actions and my beliefs about God and about me, determines my thoughts. As Christian wives, husbands, singles, and kids, we’ve been called to live a different life.
This theory presented by the psychologists really should not apply to us. We are aware that we, to some extent, determine the type of relationship with others. We are aware that we cannot bear this burden alone, so we bring it to the feet of our Lord. We lay it there, with prayer and prayer and prayer.
We trust in His greatness and goodness to see us through this time with relationships, especially among couples and kids, intact and thriving. Only the Lord can do this, you see, because we are not nice people without Him, and it shows.
