AM I WITH THE RIGHT PARTNER?

STOP YOUR RUSH AND TAKE A LOOK:
In relationships/marriage, we sometimes are faced with this challenge: At such moments, you can make it right or let it go... Your choice... Just never use your present circumstance to determine your life.
AM I WITH THE RIGHT PARTNER?
During a seminar, a woman asked," How do I know if I am with the right person?"
The author then noticed that there was a large man sitting next to her so he said, "It depends. Is that your partner?"
In all seriousness, she answered "How do you know?"
Let me answer this question because the chances are good that it's weighing on your mind replied the author.
Here's the answer.
Every relationship has a cycle… In the beginning; you fall in love with your partner. You anticipate their calls, want their touch, and like their idiosyncrasies.
Falling in love wasn't hard. In fact, it was a completely natural and a spontaneous experience.
You didn't have to DO anything.
That's why it's called "falling" in love.
People in love sometimes say, "I was swept of my feet.
"Picture the expression. It implies that you were just standing there; doing nothing, and then something happened TO YOU.
Falling in love is a passive and spontaneous experience.
But after a few months or years of being together, the euphoria of love "Seemly" fades.
It's a natural cycle of EVERY relationship... Those are love challenges which you have to decide either to win together or lose out completely on.
Sometimes, phone calls become a bother (if they come at all).
Touch is not always welcome (when it happens).
And your spouse's idiosyncrasies,instead of being cute, drive you nuts.
The symptoms of this stage vary with every relationship; you will notice a dramatic difference between the initial stage when you fell in love and a much duller or even angry subsequent stage.
This is the moment! That one moment when questions begin to pop up in your head.
At this point, you and/or your partner might start asking,
"Am I with the right person?"
And as you reflect on the euphoria of the love you once had, you may begin to desire that experience again... with someone else.
This is when relationships breakdown... If you choose.
The key to succeeding in a relationship is not finding the right person; it's learning to love the person you found. Then they would be right!!!
People blame their partners for their unhappiness and look outside for "fulfillment". At this point, permit me to say that your fulfillment really lies with you not someone else...
Extramarital "fulfillment" comes in all shapes and sizes.
Infidelity is the most common.
But sometimes people turn to work, a hobby, friendship, excessive TV, or abusive substances.
But the answer to this dilemma does NOT lie outside your relationship with your spouse.
It lies within it.
I'm not saying that you couldn't fall in love with someone else. You could.
And *TEMPORARILY* you'd feel better.
But you'd be in the same situation moments later. You know why??? Because you have not learnt to find substance in-depth in your self... So, no one can give it to you and that includes Extramarital "fulfillment".
Because (listen carefully to this):
The key to succeeding in a Relationship like said before, is not finding the right person; it's learning to love the Person you found... Only then would they become right... Remember, Love covers a multitude of sins/errors...
SUSTAINING love is not a passive or spontaneous experience.
You have to work on it day in and day out.
It takes time, effort, and energy.
And most importantly, it demands WISDOM.
You have to know WHAT TO DO to make it work.
Make no mistake about it.
Love is NOT a mystery.
There are specific things you can do (with or without your partner), Just as there are physical laws Of the universe (such as gravity), there are also laws for relationships.
If you know how to apply these laws, the results are predictable.
Love is therefore a "decision".
Not just a feeling.
Remember this always: God determines who walks into your life...
But It is entirely up to you to decide:
Who you let walk away!
Who you let stay!!
And who you refuse to let GO!!!
Go fix and make it right!
You CAN!
And You SHOULD!!!
God bless you both.

Who is Jesus



Mark 21:10 When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, "Who is this?"

It would appear that many do not really know who Jesus is. Even Christians do not really know who He is. Many do not have a personal knowledge of who Jesus is, what they have is a general knowledge.

Jesus wants us to have a personal knowledge (not a general opinion) of who He is.

Mathew 16:13-17 When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?”
14They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” 15“But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” 16Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” 17Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven.

Having told Jesus people's opinion of who He is Jesus requested to know who Peter thought He is. It is
okay to know what everybody is saying about Jesus but it is important to know Him personally.

No one can reveal Jesus to you (flesh and blood has not revealed this to you), they can only lead (introduce) you to Him. Only the Father (through the Holy Spirit) can reveal Him to you. Jesus said the Holy Spirit will not speak of Himself but will glorify Him (John 16:13-14).

Do not be satisfied with other people's opinion of who Jesus is, discover Him for yourself and you'll be able to say like Peter, "You are the xxx."

Be InCharge

God's Way (1)

As for God, His way is perfect... (Proverbs 18:30).

One definition for "way" is a method, style, or manner of doing something; an optional or alternative form of action.

There is man's way and God's way. Man's way is filled with trials and errors while God's way is faultless.

One major reason why Jesus stood out was because He did exactly what He saw the Father do. He did everything God's way (Mathew 5:19).

Want to have better result at work, in your ministry, marriage, business, etc? Then you need to change your method or style of doing things... Choose God's way.

ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES

Matthew  19:26 ...With men this is impossible;

There are things that are naturally impossible for man to do. No matter how strong, determined or intelligent the man is. Man is limited.

Philippians 4:13   I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Thank God for Christ for through Him we can DO ALL THINGS. Christ is the key to a life of endless possibilities.

Do you have a relationship with Him? Are you connected to Him?

Be InCharge!

DESIRE CHANGE



1 Chronicles 4:9 - Jabez was more honorable than his brothers. His mother had named him Jabez, saying, “I gave birth to him in pain.” 
10 - Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted his request.

Jabez was more honorable than his brothers. He could have said at least am better off than them but he didn't do that. He went to God to change his status. 

Don't settle for less. You can be and have more than who you are and what you have currently. Jabez desired change and God granted his request. Desire a change today.
