… A Controlling and Manipulative Romantic Relationship.
In the midst of researching information for Lasting Lifestyle Change, an idea that is in the works since becoming a certified Health Coach, I came upon the article below. It was a good read as I ate my meal. I share for the lady or male who may not know what an abusive relationship looks like. Without much dating in my life, I would only know what one looks like based on movies I’ve seen. So it’s good to know
FIVE Manipulative Relationship Signs
I just reading the Our Daily Bread devotional for today December 18th. 2018 and I love how it was written. I admire the actions of the author of todays reading, how he carried his sons and Iadmire how it relates to how God carried and possibly kissed Moses at the end of Moses’ life.
Surely for the past few months I have gone through weary moments and times, but when the time comes I believe I will be with Jesus a d His Father. For the time is coming when I shall receive true (documented ) salvation (more on this in another post).
Check out todays devotional The Great Awakening.
She was reminded of personal touch
She looks back and remembers the hold he had on her
Truth be told she liked it
Just a bit surprising to her
She has and still is renewing a promise she made to the One who loved her first
It’s late night and she wants something she hasn’t had and two weeks
It is more than two weeks ago when she shared willingly
She waits on the One who loved her first
To help her through this time
To help her through her desires
Why awaken love until it is time
When is it time to awaken love
For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it — lest, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish’?
Luke 14:28-30 NKJV
Some weeks ago I decided to start training online to be a health coach. As with going to college or trade school it costs. The verse I shared above tells me I really should have counted what it would cost me to start this training. What it would cost me financially and time wise.
I wish I had more time and less concern or worry about paying for this training. In the end I pray on Jesus’ name that what I learn will benefit me in many ways as well as those I interact with. Lord, I pray to make better choices about what I eat and drink and how I spend the money You have allowed me to make through work. Thank You for being with me always Lord and Holy Spirit. In Jesus’ name, amen.
A father of the fatherless and a judge and protector of the widows, Is God in His holy habitation. God makes a home for the lonely; He leads the prisoners into prosperity, Only the stubborn and rebellious dwell in a parched land.
PSALM 68:5-6 AMP
To the fatherless he is a father. To the widow he is a champion friend. To the lonely he makes them part of a family. To the prisoners he leads into prosperity until they sing for joy. This is our Holy God in his Holy Place! But for the rebels there is heartache and despair.
Psalms 68:5-6 TPT
A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation. God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land.
Psalms 68:5-6 KJV (similar to NKJV)
[Merriam-webster dictionary definition of solitary
- : without anyone or anything else : not involving or including anyone or anything else
- : done by a person who is alone
- : separate from other people or things]
In these past months, I have noticed that I am a solitary kind of person.
I have wondered if it is God’s will for me to be so now, in order to draw closer to Him.
T age 26
A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling. God sets the lonely in families, he leads out the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.
Psalm 68:5-6 NIV
