Understanding Respect

January 13, 2014
Nina Roesner wasn't happy in her marriage. Though her husband ranked their relationship a perfect ten, she only rated it a two. Roesner, the Executive Director of Greater Impact Ministries, tells how God grew her in her relationship with her husband as she began to delve into the topics of respect and submission. Roesner began to realize that she had to communicate her needs, rather than expecting her spouse to read her mind, and that learning to respect her husband was the first step in learning to love him well.

Feeling empty? Sometimes the only way to fill an empty spot left by an old affection is to replace it with a greater affection. Dannah Gresh encourages those who find themselves spiritually dry and emotionally whipped to immerse themselves in the Scriptures and begin to see themselves and their circumstances through God's eyes. Dannah shares how a difficult summer, filled with unexpected trials, had her wondering if God could really be trusted. As she listed of things she saw God doing in her circumstances she realized once again that God, indeed, is enough.

What is your mission in life? If your answer is anything other than to glorify God you may be headed for trouble. Author Dannah Gresh talks about our natural tendency to look for things other than God to fill us, and reminds us that those things, including relationships, can easily become idols if we're not careful. Dannah encourages young women to reestablish their faith by feasting on God and His word for 10 days. That means taking a break from dating for awhile in order to focus on the Lord.
