A Heart is A House for Love

As I was compelled to take a break because of medical challenges, I thought in regards to many of things to write about. But the spirit led me to write on this one subject.. I pray that it be a blessing for many who shall pause for a moment to read something that the Spirit of God is saying.

We basically have talked about the family in general, step family and blended families. We even spoke of different approaches in professional counseling’s. If I can help one marriage get back on track than praise God for he is worthy!

Therefore as I sat here in the quiet confinement of my own home, early this morning my (wife) Carrol asked me when the last time I had put by thoughts on paper? I thought about it for a minute and answered "prior to surgery". Yes a good help meet can encourage you or discouraged you it all depend on type of love which dwell in one’s heart.

The vows I normally use in a wedding ceremony, richer or poor, sickness of healthy. I thank God for Carrol simply because she is one in a million.

There seem to many variations of marriage until many folks are becoming confused or even have arrived at the point of confusion. This is taking precedent over what God has ordained and that which exist in the days of old. Remember everyday want be like Sunday nor will everyday be like peaches and cream. But only if love find a house in your heart!

Unconditional love is the values system and principal for the entry of forgiveness and restoration. Often times trust is violated and the offended party utter only with their lips that they forgive the one who transgressed against them, when resentment and anger have not moved completely out of heart.

To be based on my knowledge of the scripture this is a foul play with such a loving God. But with others it’s just about man’s law, filing the necessary documents.

I suppose I tend to wonder what type of foundation this marriage was built on from the very beginning and certainly we must need to know that no growth occurred during the brief stay. Not realizing that we all must answer the ultimate judge. However if unconditional and true love lived in both parties heart, "no weapon formed against them should prosper". A heart is a house where love live just as the body is the temple of the Holy Spirit

Very good; it's a pleasure to read about the little things (like your wife's asking you about your writing--she was showing she cared in that simple question) that stir and stimulate the heart. I'd like to see an article from you that you share with your wife: a collage of ideas that have kept you looking at each other and caring through all the years. Simple ideas like helping with the dishes when she was dead tired after cooking the Holiday Meal, etc. I'll look for it!
