    Good Neighbors from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the importance of being a good neighbor. Ever since Adam and Eve had kids and one killed the other, it has been an ongoing thing, learning to live with one another. Most of the ten commandments are about how we tr...

    When I kept silence, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night your hand was heavy on me. My strength was sapped in the heat of summer. Selah. I acknowledged my sin to you. I didn't hide my iniquity. I said, I will confess my transgressions to Yahweh, and you forgave t...

A Bridge Over Troubled Water

  • He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the LORD. Prov. 18:22 ESV

    One morning I was praying in my room, my mind aimlessly drifting from one thing to another. I saw a picture of my wife and I walking together on the beach. Then it occurred to me that her birthday was coming up soon. Then I thought: 'You should take her away for the weekend.'

    Later at the office, I checked my email and the first one was from a Beach Resort who offered an ocean front room with a jacuzzi for $49.95 a night. Though very busy, I gave in and asked her if she would like to go away for the weekend. She was delighted. We had a wonderful weekend together.

    At another time, my wife was praying and the Lord directed her to do something special for me, much the same way. When a couple places God at the center of their life, the Lord will be the mediator in the relationship. He will tell you things that add spice and provide a way for you to do it.

    The Lord loves you both, wants your marriage to work, and will give you these subtle hints along the way. Do not ignore them. They could easily be the bridge over troubled water.

    Prayer: Father, I pray that you will speak to me clearly and show me things that I can do for others to improve the relationship, in the name of Jesus.

    Note: Ladies, today is Thankful Thursday at the "Ladies in Distress" group (our RHM women's group)!

Thanks pastor Dion. Just when I feel like I have no more tears left to cry for my late wife and what we had  together,and what I so deeply miss. You come along with a message like this.....  At first it reminds me of all the ways that I failed, but I know thats only the enemy talking. Then I realize Holy Spirit is speaking through you so I need to take this in at God's perspective. Maybe what and who I've been praying for at a future appointed time from God and His help to get it right in a new relationship with a woman that He thinks is a mutual good fit for both of us. I choose to hope in and trust God for a new,fresh start and to prepare my heart/mind and do the same for the precious woman who would choose to allow me into her life. Sicerely though,no joking, thank you because this reminds me that a relationship rooted in God,Jesus and Holy Spirit is the only one that will succeed. It is the only way that my wife Donielle and I lasted till death do us part.........
