Wives World. “How Long Lord?”

Learning to wait on The Lord is one of the biggest challenges we will ever have.  For my clients who are with me because of unanswered prayers in their life, this can be one of the most difficult challenges to their faith.  Waiting on God who has the mindset of  one day =’s 1,000 years,…

Wives World ~ Alone in the Boat…

Probably the toughest place to be is alone when all a (Mark 5) round us the storms are raging.  Imagine the disciples going through a similar situation.  The waves “broke over and they were nearly swamped.”  This description of life ever sound familiar to you? When the crisis of life overwhelms that is bad enough,…

Wives World ~ Life is sooooo Daily!

[youtube=http://youtu.be/ZdONs6MJNB8] Ruth Graham once made the very wise statement:  “The trouble with life is that it’s so daily!”  Dragging ourselves out of bed each morning to face the day and all that it does and doesn’t hold can put two strikes against us before we start. Something about the daily-ness of life and the lack…

Wives World~ The Silent Treatment…from God

[youtube=http://youtu.be/ZdONs6MJNB8] We talked about the destructiveness in relationships when the silent treatment is used as a way to respond in communication, especially surrounding the issue of conflict. What happens if the silent treatment we are getting is from GOD?  What’s the normal reaction??? Same as our human relationships…ANGER!  We may actively, like Job, throw our…

Wives World ~ The Silent Treatment

When in conflict a typical response can be nothing.  For those who do not like conflict this seems to be the perfect way to deflect and stop the conflict.  I grew up with the motto, “if you can’t say something nice don’t say anything at all.”  I think this response to conflict…saying nothing…can sometimes be…

Wives World~ Too Many Hats

Today I am not making a fashion statement.  My subject today is something that I believe has reached crisis state in our culture.  In the midst of the political hulabaloo, I am reminded of the Israelites who were held captive in Egypt.  I picture my favorite movie (I’m dating myself) “The Ten Commandments” with the…

Wives World ~ “Don’t You Care About My Pain?”

I find the deepest wounds in my clients are the one where the pain they are in is invalidated.  Many times this is the case with those who are deeply depressed.  Common reactions to depression are “get over it!”  Just put a smile on your face, buck up, be grateful and keep charging ahead.  This…

Wives World ~ Intimacy Injuries

There are many situations in our life that will cause us to close our hearts to give and receive love.  As we trudge through this world the injuries to our hearts come.  We get an arrow here, a knife there, a jab here and there.  Eventually life becomes too painful to connect on any level.…
