"get past differing and get on with making a difference in one another's life. God made us different--not to hinder but to help."
-- From my reading today in Capture His Heart by Lysa TerKeurst.
ouch! I needed this admonishment this morning, but what an amazing way to think about our roles as husbands and wives--to make a [positive] difference in each other's lives.
If you are a wife, you need to read this book. [It is only about an inch thick, so no excuses!] It is truly changing me and how I interact with Paul. There are tons of marriage books out there, but, to me, this one is incredible. It is concise, but it is FULL of God's truth, encouragement, and ideas for practical application. God is teaching me so much about how to be fulfilled and how to be a blessing to my husband. I mess up continually, but there is freedom and joy in knowing this: I don't have to [and can't!] do it on my own...the Lord's grace is sufficient...and his Holy Spirit is ever present to help me be what He has called me to be.
