What factors fight against our grace-motivated effort to tame our tongues and speak graciously in conversations? A devotional and a poem.
I strain to understand what’s happened since I saw her last week. This is what agony wants: for my own pain to get in the way, for the chance to look away.
A long marriage doesn’t make or break one’s character; it merely exposes it. And failure or erosion of the relationship is not inevitable.
This is how the Lord responded. When the pain sings , listen to the melody and find Me there in the low notes, the long wails, staccato beat.
