Rest from emotions 

​Lord, I receive Your rest. I need rest from the incessant hard emotions. Dry my tears. I don’t want to bottle up my emotions in any way, but I do want Your help to control them. I don’t want my emotions to hold me— or those I do life with— hostage in any way. Help me process what I feel in healthy, productive ways. Your shadow is like shade on a hot, scorching day; it’s the place where I can acknowledge what I feel. But You give me enough relief that those feelings don’t consume me. You are the only one who can do this. No other person or distraction is mighty enough. Forgive me for chasing lesser things. Forgive me for trying to get from people a love that only You can give. Yes, I choose to stop the chase and the unhealthy pursuits and place my trust in You. This is the rest I so desperately need. Amen.

Enemies

We have an enemy and it is not eachother. 
The original post was from Monday…. we havent talked since 

Commit to pray for someone that has caused you pain.  That is easy, today. Especially after the odd dream I had about Craig wanting a girlfriend (that isn’t me), and bringing her home to have dinner with us, expecting we would be friends.  

Thank You Jesus, for my husband. I give you our marraige,  that I would be the wife Craig needs. That I would show your grace and mercy to him, and to others. That Craig would feel respected by me. That you would teach us how to not only live together but love wholeheartedly. Thank you for my recent ephiphany. Show me now what to do with it. 

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
