If you read my blog at all or my Facebook then you know my fitness goals but this is different.....this is what I think God may have for me aside from health and fitness but that does play a huge part in my life and changing who I am.
First of all is my blog......
I feel like if I keep writing you guys will keep coming and I can only pray, and I do, that I am blessing at least one person that day with my writing! There may only be 5 of you that read right now or forever but my prayer is that one of you read something that touches you or encourages you!
I have thought about trying to get my blog "out there" so to speak and link up anywhere that will let me but I just don't feel drawn to do that. I feel like if I am meant to have this as my platform then the readers will come.
I am not a fancy writer with big words and tons of Biblical knowledge but I do write from my heart and mean what I say.
About eight years ago my husband and I attended a marriage retreat called Weekend To Remember. We went there on the verge of divorce and that weekend saved our marriage. I remember listening to the married couple that were speakers that weekend and being in awe of their marriage and what all they had been through but yet here they were standing there teaching us through their trials and mistakes and were willing to share hurts and real feelings that some would want kept private.
I left there with a new marriage but I also left there wanting that. I wanted to be them! I pictured Marc and I standing on a stage teaching what we had learned through our 13 years of marriage.
Fast forward another 8 years......
It never happened.
I have over the years asked God why? Why can't we be "that couple"? And lately He has answered me. One we weren't married long enough to REALLY get it enough to give advice to a crowd of married couples. Second, we weren't ready because we had a lot more to learn! And it would be the hard way on some things. Third, we hadn't put Him first in our lives so why would He allow us to teach that? Because really THAT is the answer to most marriage problems. We had not learned the true meaning of forgiveness so how can we teach it? I especially deal with lack of forgiveness so I have been studying what it really means and how to fully forgive! We both deal with resentment so how can we teach that resentment is a marriage killer? God is working on me/us in a mighty way......
