A Non-Denominational Ministry of Our Heavenly Father
Sharing the Word of God... World-Wide
~ Our relationship with each other ~
There is not a whole lot I can say, because The Word of God is real plain here. I hope you all read this to the end. Remember that Jesus set the example for husbands to follow. We are to love our wives as Christ loves The Church, in a loving, nurturing, understanding way. Christ never yelled at or abused The Church.
(Rules for Christian Households) 18) Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. 19) Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them. 20) Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord. 21) Fathers, do not embitter your children, or they will become discouraged.
(What Must Be Taught to Various Groups) 1) You must teach what is in accord with sound doctrine. 2) Teach the older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self controlled, and sound in faith, in love and in endurance. 3) Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. 4) Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, 5) to be self controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God. 6) Similarly, encourage the young men to be self controlled. 7) In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness 8) and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us.
There are people who can walk away from you. When people can walk away from you: let them walk. I don't want you to try to talk another person into staying with you, loving you, calling you, caring about you, coming to see you, staying attached to you. I mean hang up the phone. Your destiny is never tied to anybody that left. The bible says 19 They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us. For if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us; but their going showed that none of them belonged to us. [1 John 2:19] . People leave you because they are not joined to you. And if they are not joined to you, you can't make them stay. Let them go. And it doesn't mean that they are a bad person it just means that their part in the story is over. And you've got to know when people's part in your story is over so that you don't keep trying to raise the dead. You've got to know when it's dead.
You've got to know when it's over. I believe in good-bye. It's not that I'm hateful, it's that I'm faithful, and I know whatever God means for me to have He'll give it to me. And if it takes too much sweat I don't need it. Stop begging people to stay. Let them go!! If you are holding on to something that doesn't belong to you and was never intended for your life, then you need to LET GO OF IT!
If you have a husband that was never joined to you at the hip, or a marriage that was never blessed by God, then ask Our Father into your marriage, or get out of it! If your man is a dead beat, ** then get on your knees and ask God to forgive you of YOUR poor choice! If it was Our Father's choice for you to be married to one another, you would both be HAPPY!
If you are holding on to past hurts and pains ... LET GO OF IT!
If someone can't treat you right, love you back, and see your worth... LET GO OF THEM!
If someone has angered you ... LET GO OF IT!
If you are still holding thoughts of evil and revenge ... LET GO OF IT!
If you are in a wrong relationship or addiction ... LET GO OF IT!
If you are holding on to a job that no longer meets your needs or talents ... LET GO OF IT!
If you have a bad attitude... LET GO OF IT!
If you keep judging others to make yourself feel better... LET GO OF IT!
If you are struggling with the healing of a broken relationship.... LET GO OF IT!
If you keep trying to help someone who won't even try to help themselves... LET GO OF IT!
If you're feeling depressed and stressed .... LET GO OF IT!
If you're stuck in the past and God is trying to take you to a new level in Him... OPEN YOUR EYES TO GOD!
If there is a particular situation that you are so used to handling yourself and God is saying "take your hands off of it," then you need to let go of the situation, and let God do what is BEST for you!
Let the past be the past. Forget the former things.
Get Right or Get Left behind!
**1 Timothy 5:8
8 If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever
