Stay passionate

Reece & I have been married for more than 18 years. We have 3 elementary age kids, busy schedules & lots of demands. Translation: it could be easy to lose our passion & interest in each other just to try & keep up with the demands of life.
I think I the same is true with God. If we aren’t careful, our relationship w God can get programmed, stale & detached. Here are a few ideas that could help you stay passionately in love with God:
*don’t let disappointment or bitterness be stronger than genuine love
*be a proficient forgiver
*stay in awe – God is always up to something divine ,)
*pour out your heart to God & receive in exchange everything God is
*watch for God in the mundane – you’ll be pleasantly surprised!!
*Remember that God is Three & knowing the Three will always blow your mind 🙂
*be willing to let God’s will be supreme over your will

  1. Faith and awareness are the keys to this achievement. No one maintains that better that you and Pastor Reece. You are an outstanding, blessed and human two-some that spreads these riches to your family and friends and the world (literally). Blessings. Alice

  2. Stay(ing) passionate, I was right there with you until that greek word popped up “paskho” and I believe you were headed down the road of intensity w/enthusiasm, not the passion of Christ. But the word does have some interesting derivitives. If this is going to be your message for Wed. night, then count me in. God bless and you go girl!
    There are 10 things that I learned from my woofer / dog that fills right in,too
    1. Never pass up the opportunity for a joy ride with the wind in your face.
    2. When it is in your best interest “practice obediance”.
    3. When loved ones come home always come running to greet them.
    4. Eat with gusto and enthusiasm.
    5. Run, romp, and play daily.
    6. When someone is having a bad day, then lay beside them quietly, and sit close by and nudge them quietly.
    7. Delight in the simple joys of a long walk together.
    8. Forgiveness is never an issue – just do it
    9. Avoid biting when a simple growl wil do to establish boundaries.
    10. Learn to complete each other and not compete w/each other.
    Woof!

  3. There must be nothing more satisfying than a Christian marriage. I love your thoughts about it Sarah.
