Friday Thought

In a conversation with someone something came out that I feel is straight from the heart of God.

This person felt that she was losing herself and her identity and was tired of giving and giving and not receiving. She was feeling less of a person and like life was unfair. A fear was that she would not be able to be all that she felt she was created to be.

This came pouring out ...

You will NEVER lose yourself when you give yourself. By giving yourself, you only strengthen WHO you are and become MORE.

Think on it for awhile and let it sink in.

Yes, that is godly wisdom indeed. I'm going to have to start a "Merrie's wisdom" section in my notes on marriage. I'm getting lots of gold nuggets from you.

That is a good word, indeed. Very biblical.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. You just have to make sure you are giving yourself in the right way...

This is really good. I may have to ponder on this for a day or two. Thanks for the wisdom!
