THE RELATIONSHIP CHALLENGE. [Day 8]

*PLEASE NOTE: This blog is intended for a mature audience. It does contain some sexual content. It is directed towards adults in a mature relationship. 
I saw this on Pinterest yesterday and of course, it has inspired me. 
You might remember that I wrote about husbands and wives the other day in my daily devotional, but I wanted to take things a step further today and not just talk about things, but actually DO something.
According to the American Psychological Association, about 40 to 50 percent of married couples in the United States divorce. (APA) Can you believe that almost half of the people that marry in the US will eventually get a divorce? Those are some high numbers..
and I refuse to be a statistic.
Of course, we can say that we don't want to be a statistic, but we have to put feet on our faith and be proactive. 
I want to issue a CHALLENGE. A HUSBAND/WIFE CHALLENGE. (Even if you aren't married, substitute husband/wife for fiance or boyfriend/girlfriend.)
I typically…

Angry, Mad, Discontent Prayer. Does it Exist? [Day 7]

Trials are not a respecter of persons. They could care less if you have a million dollars in your bank account or $5.00 to your name. They aren't concerned with whether or not you went to college. They aren't going to stay away if you drive a brand new car or wear the finest clothes. They will meet you face to face... regardless.
I'll be honest with you. I've had my fair share of trials in my 26 years. Sure, I might not have had difficult ones in some people's eyes, but I have struggled. I struggled for years with anxiety (and still do at times. It's a constant battle.)
Here's the thing I want us to grasp about trials.
Sometimes, they are brought in to our lives to help US. 
Sometimes, they are brought in to our lives to help OTHERS.
Unfair, huh?
Why should YOU have to go through something to benefit someone else? 
It's called being a BLESSING.
I'll use myself for example.
Like I previously stated, I have struggled with Anxiety for years. I dealt w…

It Hisses. [Day 6]

It is just as cowardly to judge an absent person as it is wicked to strike a defenseless one. Only the ignorant and narrow-minded gossip, for they speak of persons instead of things. [Lawrence G. Lovasik]
Will Rogers said, "The only time people dislike gossip is when you gossip about them."
I think the subject of 'gossip' makes some people feel uneasy. We all do it, right? I'm writing this today because I have done it. I'm not proud of it in the slightest, but I'm owning up to it. I've talked about people. Want me to take it a step further? I've slandered people's names. I've said things about people that I have heard from others.. and I didn't even know if it was true. Can you believe that? I'm one of those hear-sayers. You hear it.. you say it. I'm also one of those people that will talk about someone behind their back, but when it comes to face-to-face confrontation, I am a sweetheart (because I hate confrontation.) I've f…
