This afternoon I was listening to a Christian speaker on the Hillsong channel and when he spoke the above words as he was preaching the love of Christ in us, words began to flood my mind for a blog.
Why would we think this is not true?
Our best friends are easy…really? We respect them, love, listen, help, encourage, understand, change our schedule to meet theirs, be kind, etc. This doesn’t take effort (work)?? Of course it does.
Courting someone for a relationship we find we work work work and we love it because the chase is often so much fun.
Then comes marriage and before we know it, we left the “work” of the relationship at the altar. Too often we’ve nestled into a groove of apathy, complaining about our spouse, feeling tired, used, bored.
Remarriage and a stepfamily? You say we’ve been married before, we won’t make the same mistakes (No, you’ll make NEW ones, and many of the old ones want to come back!). The kids will get used to it, everybody will get along……Riiiiiiight.
PEOPLE ARE HARD WORK!
Are you a single parent? Stepfamily Rx’s conference has something for you!
Are you a couple contemplating marriage creating a stepfamily? Ooooh, lots for you!
Are you married and in a stepfamily? WOOOOW, even more for you!!
It’s going to be great! Everyone that has attended has left with information, more skills, knowledge, and new friends!
God has blessed this event every year. YAY.
