how sexy is this cat? a young Paul McCartney, so sexy! no wonder the girls chased him down in the 60s.
I read an amazingly tender article this morning on Radical Womanhood entitled Wifely Wisdom, it was basically about the 3 strand cord that is marriage. that cord includes: you + your husband + God. the bible says in Ecclesiastes 4:12
12 Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
I love that last line, a cord of three strands is not quickly broken. its doesn’t say it won’t come up against opposition or storms but that it won’t be quickly broken. I believe if we seek God we will find him and how much more so if we seek him, his ways and heart in this important relationship.
This is my favorite part, “”When you see your husband’s weaknesses or areas where he needs to grow–or even areas where he’s slighting you–I have learned there is no need to defend myself or my point of view. (Now, to be clear, she’s not speaking of physical abuse–but the typical arguments over rights or perspectives.) “I have learned to go to God and make a quiet appeal of Him. I say, ‘God, You know how to get his attention. I will wait for You to do it. And when You do, I know You will be more merciful about it than I ever will.'”
it got me thinking about the beauty of quiet appeals and the kind we can make to our father even while single. seeking direction,clarity and guidance but most importantly taking our concerns to him with full trust that in his divine time he will make all things new. Lets always remember to walk humbly before our God and that there is always a time and place for quiet appeals and petitions.
