Meditation on Marriage…Maybe

growthIn any relationship, especially marriage, two people can get close only by sharing with each other their thoughts, their dreams, their life and who they are becoming. Obvious, right?
Yet implied within that statement is that you know who you are and who you are is worth sharing! This kind of vulnerability is tough, which is why most relationships remain shallow as each person becomes stalled in their personal growth.
Now, you probably thought I was talking about you and your spouse or friends. Nope, I was talking about your relationship with Jesus. (Paul used the marriage relationship in Ephesians 5 as an illustration for our walks with Jesus.)
I don’t know how many times I’ve heard, “Christianity is not a religion, but a relationship.” Well, is it true or not? When it comes to talking with Jesus (i.e. prayer), what are your conversations centered around – what you need or who you’re becoming?
Jesus already made us secure children of God. It’s this security – never being separated from the source of love – that provides us with the room to take steps of faith (i.e. risk) in allowing the Spirit to change our lives (aka personal growth). Talk with Jesus about changing your life. You’ll only grow closer to Him as you do. It’s well worth the risk.

  1. This is such a powerful truth that I have seen, literally ‘seen’, with my own eyes. I have been learning how to to filter all the lies that the enemy is shouting at me every day through the Truth of God’s Word (HE is the Word!) and hearing His Voice tell me Who’s I am and who I am! I am seeing circumstances that one cause me to feel insecure be transformed into opportunities for me to become who He is calling me to be; free in Christ and a light in the darkness, remaining firm in my faith. It’s all About Him.
    Thank you for this blog!

    • You’re welcome and way to go! Keep processing and allowing the truth that you are a secure child of God continue to transform your life.
