Day 7 of Love&Respect

First, I want to say I'm sorry for being absent for awhile, things have been very hetic in my life and are just slowing down. We buried my pastor of 21 years and He had been the pastor at our church for over 50 years, He died with cancer and it still breaks my heart to think about it. He was such a great man and very selfless, always cared about helping others no matter the cost.

Second, my health has been up and down, I was put on bed rest for a few days after passing out at the graveside service of my pastor, and a lot of others things that I won't bore you with but I missed being here and prayed daily that if any one came across the page that was new or been here before that they would find encouragement. My little break was nice but I'm going to continue where I left off in my challenge because this book is really marriage and life changing and I hope that if you haven't finished reading it, started reading it or even heard of it, you will get in today and order it and follow along.

It can be ordered at the main site for Love and Respect or at Amazon.

In chapter 7 it talked to the wives about being forgiving and respectful no matter how unloving your husband is being and it also told the husband to forgive and love your wife no matter how disrespectful she is being. No spouse wakes up and says "what can I do to upset my beloved today?", We are all human and make mistakes, we need to learn to forgive and not hold things against one another. We must forgive as God forgives us when we do things that we shouldn't do. We need to learn to say "I'm sorry" and really mean it from the bottoms of our soul and move forward and never bring it up again. I am preaching to myself also, I'm in no way perfect but I want to help others as I learn these things so that we can be the wife that God created us to be.

What did you learn from Chapter 7? Are there somethings that you need to work on and let go of that you are holding against your spouse? What is your advice to others about forgiving one another no matter how hard it is?

I pray that today we will learn to forgive and move forward in the marriage God gave us :)

Be Blessed,

Regina Cozad
