And the churning continues
Perfect Love casts out all fear. So I was not thinking Jesus Others than You, (what a wonderful way to spell JOY)
remember that song? I was thinking Me, mine and I’m scared. So did we say no too soon?
Is it possible for me to feel called to a situation and God not call Ray? How would that work? Not at all.
God warns about being unequally yoked with unbelievers ( II Corinthians 6:14), but Ray is a believer, so that’s not why.
Am I wrong in having compassion and caring? My fleece…call Ray too. That’s it. I’m tired of feeling
like I am a horse double yolked to an ox. One is pulling really hard and fast and runs out of steam and
one goes forever and very slowly at that. Ok I guess I must slow down and grow horns. I am like; yes
we can…Ray is like; well let’s see…
That is always my lesson isn’t it. Marriage is really hard, rarely are the two partners exactly the same.
In fact most of the time the differences in temperment are on opposite ends of the pole. Committed marriage is in the figuring
out how to.. . Someone has to bend. It us usually me, why? Because it bothers me the most I guess. He just
lets me run ahead and never tries to catch me. It bothers me he is way back there…so I stop turn around
and match his pace.
How would our marriage work if I didn’t do that? It wouldn’t. Soon I would be so far ahead that I wouldn’t
even feel him pulling. The yolk would break and I would be free and he would too. Too what end? Two
can pull better than one, if one falls there is no one to pick him or her up( Ecclesiastes 4:10). And who can break a strand
of three (Ecclesiastes 4:12)? Ray Me and God…grammatically incorrect, but strong 🙂
