When Sinners Say "I Do" Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage

The gospel is something we need in every area of our lives.  In marriage and in singleness.  In joy and in sorrow.  In good times and in hard times.  When life feels good and when life feels confusing.  This book showed so much of my need for Jesus and His grace. It calls us to look at our own sins and not be so easy to point out the sins of those around us.   It shows the great gravity of our sins.  We can all tend to point fingers and defend or blame our sins on others or life circumstances.  I think especially today it is so easy to do this and not truly see our sins.  "It is wrong, not because of what it does to me, or my spouse, or child, or neighbor, but because it is an act of rebellion against the infinitely holy and majestic God." -Jerry Bridges "There can be no small sins against a great God." -J.I. Packer Dave Harvey mentions in the book that with true sorrow of our "little sins", our awareness of God and His mercy grow. Be quick to see our own

Thoughts on TODAY
This virus has really rocked our world.  I think everything that I've learned in these last two years is to live with eternity in mind.  As I battle the temptation to constantly be anxious, complain, and worry I'm learning to be content and trust the Lord through all the unknown.  And boy is it hard.  Who would have thought this very tiny small bug could shut down the world?  Who would have thought how much could be effected by such a thing?  Well God did.  And we can take comfort in knowing that.  He is good through this.  HE has plan through this.  Going through some hard trials this last year has really given me more of the desire to be to be in heaven with Christ and not here, with all the pain and the unknown.  But as I began to slowly heal, and adjust to my new life and my new area this virus came and changed everything again.  And all those fears from years ago came back.  I don't want to lose control.  I don't want life to change like this.  I have so much I want to do still, right?  But God has a plan and changing my thinking is hard and a battle, truly, but it is what the Lord uses to sanctity and grow us in Him.  Who knows how long this will last and how much this will effect everything, but we can ALWAYS trust God and His will.  We know that He does loves us.  We know He is good.  Living it is hard, but letting go and letting God is so much better then living in constant fear and anxiety.  Trusting and giving Him our desires and asking His will be down is better then fighting for our own plans, because in all honesty His plans are better and He knows all things.  He sees things I don't and is working in so many different ways, even know.
