I listened to a preacher say that God doesn’t do bad things. According to Him, bad things are as a result of sin and the devil
This sounds like a good thought but it is just not Godly thinking. And don’t worry, I used to be on this side of the divide for a bit until I came to see all of God.
When I started seeing all of God, I came to understand that God does not excuse Himself from bad things.
I got a call from an old classmate from my undergraduate days that we hadn’t spoken in years.
She gave me an update on current events in her life. Long story short, she had invested some years raising her kids and now she wanted to get back into the game.
She was looking at starting up a practice and had hit a roadblock. According to her, she had been praying and my name had popped up. She took it as God’s direction to speak to me.
As part of our plan for growth this year, one of the decisions my wife and I made was to go for counseling. Our reason was pretty simple; we wanted to deepen of relationship and marriage experience.
We didn’t go into it because of a major problem. Rather, so we could move to the next level in our marriage
To keep our commitment to the whole process, we went for a paid option and were connected to a wonderful couple with many decades of marriage experience.
As things happen, my wife and I had one of those fights couples have about 2 days before one of our sessions.
I was talking with a couple who were both in their second marriages with each other. Both their spouses had died and they had raised grown-up children.
After they got married, the wife wrote an email to the husband’s children. The gist of her message was this “I am going to be your father’s wife. I am not trying to replace your mother”. The husband only got to know about the message after she had sent it.
