The Best Gift I can ever have...

    



 I have written about a lot of things in my blog, but there is one treasured blessing that I must say I have failed to acknowledge is the greatest gift God has given to me, and that is my marriage.  I have taken it for granted many times over the last six years.

     For someone who deals daily with a mental illness it makes my marriage a much harder toil than it really is.  God has given my wife and I, a great and precious love that can be shattered if not nourished and preserved in prayer...

     Many times I have fallen into the trap that the enemy sets up to tear this precious gift of love out of God's hands.

     I have to be vigilant in the devil's schemes, because he hates marriage as much as God hates divorce.  Satan is the culprit of many failed marriages. I pray for the peace and protection of my own marriage and my precious bride...

     I thank God for my dear wife, who relentlessly loves me "beyond" this malady that I fight daily. This blog post I dedicate to Fonda, my beautiful wife, my gift from Heaven...

     Apart from my salvation experience her love is the greatest gift that I have.

     I thank God for the hard worker that she is. She goes above and beyond the call of duty where I am unable to hold down a job.  She toils greatly and God graciously provides all our needs in glory in Christ Jesus.

     I thank God for the blessing over our home and family.  The atmosphere of peace radiates from her heart into every ornament she has placed in our safe haven called a home.

     I thank God for her willingness to embrace me when all others push me aside.

     I place my marriage into God Almighty's strong hands, and I ask you Father to protect my wife in every way wherever her daily path may lead her.  Embrace her in a way that only she knows that is from you alone. 

     Help me to cherish and love her as Christ Jesus does for His own bride,  I so long for that great marriage, but more than that I pray for restoration where the enemy of our souls has tried to separate Fonda and I on many attempts. I pray for a deeper unity and a precious intimacy that can only come from spending time with you God that nothing can tear us out of God's hands.

     I have been greatly blessed with her love. I don't want to miss one minute without it.

   Thank you Jesus for taking those blinders off, how can we treasure something we cannot see. You have manifested your perfect love for me...

     This Christmas is a precious reminder of 1 Corinthians 13...

I may speak in the languages of humans and of angels. But if I don’t have love, I am a loud gong or a clashing cymbal. 2 I may have the gift to speak what God has revealed, and I may understand all mysteries and have all knowledge. I may even have enough faith to move mountains. But if I don’t have love, I am nothing. 3 I may even give away all that I have and give up my body to be burned.[a] But if I don’t have love, none of these things will help me.

4 Love is patient. Love is kind. Love isn’t jealous. It doesn’t sing its own praises. It isn’t arrogant. 5 It isn’t rude. It doesn’t think about itself. It isn’t irritable. It doesn’t keep track of wrongs. 6 It isn’t happy when injustice is done, but it is happy with the truth. 7 Love never stops being patient, never stops believing, never stops hoping, never gives up.

8 Love never comes to an end. There is the gift of speaking what God has revealed, but it will no longer be used. There is the gift of speaking in other languages, but it will stop by itself. There is the gift of knowledge, but it will no longer be used. 9 Our knowledge is incomplete and our ability to speak what God has revealed is incomplete. 10 But when what is complete comes, then what is incomplete will no longer be used. 11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, thought like a child, and reasoned like a child. When I became an adult, I no longer used childish ways. 12 Now we see a blurred image in a mirror. Then we will see very clearly. Now my knowledge is incomplete. Then I will have complete knowledge as God has complete knowledge of me.


13 So these three things remain: faith, hope, and love. But the best and greatest one of these is love...

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
