THE HUSBAND/WIFE “TEAM”

WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  Pastor Walter West “HITS IT OUT OF THE BALLPARK”…AGAIN!!!  The message at ABC (Anastasia Baptist Church) in St. Augustine, FL this weekend (4/23-24/16) was AMAZING!!!  DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

And “LAST” weekend’s message…???..???…???…was also AMAZING, folks!!!  The messages have focused on:  “GOD’S DESIGN FOR MARRIAGE”.  Last weekend regarded the “foundation” of marriage.  This weekend  addressed the “roles in marriage”.  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

THE HUSBAND’S ROLE???…???…???…
–To “LOVE” his wife.
–To listen to his wife.
–To bring focus to the family’s Christ-centered goal.
–To give “MUSCLE” to God’s purpose.  GRrrrrrrr….  😉
TO ESTABLISH THE FAMILY’S MISSION.

THE WIFE’S ROLE???…???…???…
–To “RESPECT” her husband.
–To voice God’s purpose with realization that submission is NOT “silence”.
–To “HELP” her husband.
–To cooperate with her husband.  Submission is NOT “passive”.
TO PROMOTE THE FAMILY’S MISSION.

BAM!!!  The husband/wife “TEAM,” folks.  Pastor Walter equated each to the following body parts:  The Husband = The Head; The Wife = The Heart.   I SIMPLY LOVE THAT EQUATION!!!  DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!!  Now…

GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE (husbands & wives) ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

H.H.W., folks.  Husbands Helping Wives; W.H.H.  Wives Helping Husbands.

Give the BEST of yourself for “JUST” today…“EVERY” day!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.

GOD’S GIFTS, PART II

*ACCEPTING GOD’S GIFTS*

WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  I am learning to accept God’s gifts, folks!!!  DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

Accepting = taking WITH permission OR, better yet…taking UPON request”.  BAM!!!  I like that:  “ACCEPTING = TAKING UPON REQUEST”.   WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!!  Taking upon whose request???!!!???!!!???!!!  Upon God’s request!!! (I’ve got chills, folks!!!  And YES…they’re multiplyin’!!!)  😉

GOD IS GOOD…ALL THE TIME!!!  ALL THE TIME…GOD IS GOOD!!!

God empowers each and every-single-one of us to fulfill His requests.  If He wants us to do something, He will show us the way.  HIS way…NOT ours.  And He will ensure success…according to HIS plan…NOT ours.  AND… it will occur in HIS time…NOT ours.  OUCH!!!  “PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE,” folks!!!  We ALL need to hurry, Hurry, HURRY-UP and wait, Wait, WAIT!!!  😉

Now, I am currently learning to accept God’s gifts, folks.  When I think I want something…???…???…???…I simply assume He’s already given it to me.  For example, I thought I wanted to stop taking anti-depressants, so I quit cold-TURKEY!!!  (I blogged about this during the end of last year/beginning of this year…somewhere in this blog…back there…SOMEWHERE…) Yep, “I”…was a “TURKEY,” all right!!!  I hoped God was gifting me, so I tried taking a gift that He did NOT want me to have…YET!!!  Folks, I have been a mess for quite a little while now…ALL because I thought I wanted to quit taking my medication!!!  OUCH!!!  I NEED THAT MEDICATION!!!  Yep, LIFE has sure been DIFFICULT lately!!!  BUT… it’s getting better now that I have resumed taking the original dosage.  THANK-YOU, JESUS!!!  The medication…???…???…???…“IS” my gift. (FOR NOW)  Take it, Jill.  And be thankful.

And then there’s my weight.  :/  “WEIGHT”…has been an issue for “ME”.  ALWAYS!!!  I experienced anorexia for a short period in my early twenties.  BAM!!!  And soon experienced the car accident that would initiate my conscious “JOURNEY”…from “HERE” to “THERE”.  DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!!  “THANK-YOU, JESUS!!!”  I am NOW an emotional eater, folks.  I BINGE (when upset)!!!  Then I get depressed (about binging).  Then I fast.  Binge (when upset).  Get depressed (about binging).  Fast.  REPEAT!!!  OUCH!!!  I HATE THAT VICIOUS CYCLE!!!

God does NOT want that, either!!!  Satan DOES.  God does NOT!!!  I am currently deciding that God wants me to be healthy…and thin.  I tell my “SELF” that God is empowering me to control my eating behaviors so that I am no longer on that constant roller-coaster!!!  Weight control is God’s Gift…to “ME”!!!  Right here.  RIGHT NOW!!!   Thank-you, Jesus.  I am learning to accept Your gift of healthy “weight control”.  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!    I am JUST starting God’s NO-DIET, DIET PLAN!!!  (I began accepting “THIS” gift about a week ago)  DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  WISH ME LUCK!!! SATAN IS A CONSTANT BATTLE!!!  :/  (Pppsssttt…this SHOULD  be easy since I’m on “NO DIET,” folks!!!)  😉 

Feeling blessed…@numberoneteam.net.

GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

P.H.P., folks.  People Helping People.

Give the BEST of yourself for “JUST” today…“EVERY” day!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.
