Wise Words

Description

Because of God’s spirit working in me, I was able to wrap my arms around my husband and offer life-giving words into his weary heart.

I’ll never forget the day my husband told me that we’d lost most of our savings in a bad investment. Hi, I’m Lysa TerKeurst for Proverbs 31 Ministries.

There were many different ways my reaction could have gone in the minutes that followed. But I’m so thankful the Lord had been preparing my heart for this very moment. And instead of reacting immediately with what would have been a disastrous response, I paused.

Because of God’s spirit working in me I was able to wrap my arms around my husband and offer life giving words into his weary heart. I said to him, “I love you Art. I loved you yesterday when we had everything and I love you today when we have nothing.”

Oh I know this can be hard – trust me I do! But I also know when we immerse ourselves in getting to know God, we can have reactions that honor Him and breathe life into relationships.
