    But when they continued asking him, he looked up and said to them, "He who is without sin among you, let him throw the first stone at her." Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground with his finger. They, when they heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning fro...

A Bridge Over Troubled Water

  • Whoever finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor of Yahweh. Proverbs 18:22 WEB.

    One morning, I was lying on the floor in my room praying. My mind was aimlessly drifting from one thing to another as I prayed when I saw an image of my wife and me walking on a beach together. Then it occurred to me that her birthday was coming up soon. Then a thought came to me, "You should take her away for the weekend."

    Later at the office, I checked my email. At the top of the list was one from a Myrtle Beach Resort who offered us an oceanfront room with a jacuzzi for $49.95 a night. We were a short drive away.

    I finally put the Lord's clues together, and even though we were very busy, I gave in and asked if she would like to go away for the weekend. She was delighted, and we had a wonderful time at the beach together. At another time, while my wife was praying, the Lord directed her to do something special for me very much the same way.

    When a couple places God at the center of their life, the Lord will become the mediator in the relationship. He will tell you things that add spice to your life and provide a way for you to do it. Yet, too often, we put ourselves at the center of the relationship, and it becomes all about what we want.

    The Lord loves you both, and He wants your marriage to work. He will give you these subtle hints along the way as He did with me. Don't ignore them. They could easily be the bridge over troubled water.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I pray that you will give me a clear vision and show me things that I can do to improve my relationship. Help me see what I am missing today. Please speak to me and through me. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths." (Prov. 3:5-6) ~ If you are in need of prayer, we and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

And I pray the LORD gives me that relationship again, now reborn and celibate for 12 years.  No family in a new land, no family (just enemies) in the old land, but in a new land just like Abraham (f/k/a Abram) - which is how and Why I like my prospects, the LORD willing.  Amen.
