More Patchwork Proverbs to FAITH lift your day


Help Lord. Why is it that my husband and I can irritate each other so at times? I think I need an anointing oil job before I start to screech.
As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another (Prov. 17:17) and sometimes the sparks just fly.

You said to love one another. What is Love, for goodness sake? 
It is giving. I so loved the world that I gave my only begotten son that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life.

I see. I can give without loving, but I cannot love without giving.
Lord, will you show me one thing I can do to bless my husband today?
Okay, leave him alone.

But Lord, You don't understand. Being unequally yoked is no laughing matter, especially when the yoke's on me. Will you please correct my husband when we're each pulling our cart in a different direction.
Let's start by changing you.

Me? What's wrong with me? I know You would be so impressed if You only listened to my prayers of dedication and adoration. . . Oh, I see. I'm not Your advisor. And I don't have to be in control when I know the ONE who is. But please, just remind my husband that it's not really him either, okay Lord?

Father, could You please assign angels with the names Goodness and Mercy to me today? 
First you get Patience and Endurance to perfect your faith. (James 1: 3-4).

(Is that why you instituted marriage?)

I'm so glad I married John! What a journey we have shared. We're actually pulling  together these days.
