Strides

It is ironic but when my wife perceives something in me that needs to be corrected, I respond with a knee-jerk defensiveness. However, whenever I take my vow seriously to always consider her words with honored weight, I find that she’s mostly right in her rebuke. I then take measures and grow in fruitfulness.

Incarnation

On the eve of my 30th wedding anniversary, I was immersed in the chaos of my flooded kitchen.

It is a deep paradigm reminding me that the only reality I can hold on to is Christ becoming flesh.

My wife kissed me goodnight with a gracious hope that the Lord shall take care of the mess.

After all, He did not spare Himself to redeem those who will heed His incredible offer.

Validation

Christ affirms my status. 

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

{Galatians 2:20 ESV}

The Hunt for Applause is Over.   Christ fills me.
