Ezekiel 36:26 - A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
A heart of flesh! A heart of stone! What kind of material is your heart made of? Have you become hardened and callous to others around you? Or are you moved with compassion toward the lost and hurting?
Today is the beginning of a new month, July 1, 2020. we celebrate our independence this year by wearing masks, having no fireworks or parades. We may have "small" gatherings as long as we "social distance" and wear masks. So what do any of these things have to do with the status of our heart, whether it is hard or soft?
How well do you value other's feelings? How do you interact with others if your opinions on following the present day "best practices" don't fall into your idea of what you are comfortable doing? The Bible tells us that the world will know us (Christians)by our love. Period. Our love for other Christians, our love for those who are not Christians, Jesus tells us to even love our enemies. Those who are voting for the ones that we don't accept or trust, especially those who do not know Christ! We MUST love one another, And that love can only come from a changed heart, Such love is not a love that is manufactured on our own or allowed to just happen. It is a love sent from God Himself, manifested in our own heart through the power of the Holy Spirit.
My prayer for you today is that you soften your heart to whatever God has for you today! Be it your marriage, your relationships with others, how you react to social media, whatever it is! Love one another!

March 31, 2016 These are the words(wow, oh my, yes and Amen) that came to mind when I started reading A Wife and A Witness. This book is not for the faint of heart, it will cause you to pause and think about if you are treating your spouse the way they should be treated according to God's word. Joy is trying to keep women from falling into the pitfalls that most women seem to succumb to when one spouse is saved and the other is not. But, I also think this book is beneficial to the wife who has a saved spouse. Even if our spouses are saved there are traps and pitfalls that we succumb to that are listed in this book. I'm enthusiastic about marriage, so I was excited to read this book. Anytime someone writes about how to heal, restore, reconcile or how to avoid the baits that Satan will place in your path to destroy to marriages, I'm ecstatic to read and share with someone else. Get a copy of this book, don't sit on the sideline and watch your marriage wither away. Get in the fight, put on the whole armour of God and let Satan know he's a liar. A Wife and A Witness is a 10 star book, but the highest I can give is 5.
