We Are Real

Recently, I feel like a YO-YO. My feelings, and my health, go up, and down, constantly. Do I do this on purpose?  Of course not, I am not in control, God is. He is the pilot, I am just the co-pilot. I am not complaining, just trying to keep things real here my friends. My life is not perfect, nor is my marriage. We are mere humans, just like all of you. We have our share of ups, and downs, and many daily struggles. We deal with the same type of problems al of you, have had at one time, or another. Financial issues, Physical issues,Family issues, and of course, Marriage issues. But, the good news is, we have a third party in our marriage, Jesus. As long, as we keep our eyes, and heart, focused upon Him, He will keep us on the right path, and keep us together, as we travel down this marriage road .

Blessings Denise... Yes, my precious sister...You are as REAL as they come!!! I do feel bad that you have been on such a roller coaster or as you put it "yo-yo".

Of course, you do NOT do any of this on purpose. Many times, you have acknowledged that God is in control and when the devil needs a kick, you give it to him...

I appreciate you and your honesty! Of course, we are mere humans... guess I missed out on too many of your posts again... so I'll have to go and see what I've missed.

I am so blessed by you showing that with all the ups and downs, you reveal the KEY is having JESUS as the 3rd party (actually the 1st...He's right up there on top where you place Him regularly!)I now that you focus on Him. Praying for
you and Lovebug... and all of those issues will be like nothing as you continue to take them to Our Lord! As always, you inspire us Denise... thanks!

Love and hugs,
Peggy

Thanks for being real, Denise! Hugs. None of us is perfect. We all indeed have our own struggles. But we also share one another's burdens since we're one Body. Praying for you, your husband, and your marriage. Christ-centered marriage is the best marriage! I hope and pray that your husband will realize that words do hurt and will stop making fun of you.

Honest, vulnerable, and real - just like you. Thank you, Denise, for sharing your open heart. Yes, we are real - broken, messy, and complicated creatures. But we are tremendously loved by the Father.

In that I am comforted.

GOD BLESS!

You are so right, God is our Pilot, He is everything and has everything we need if we keep our eyes on Him and not the problems.
Love you and praying for you,AE

Well said, Denise, no one has a perfect ride on this journey of life, but with Jesus as our co-pilot we always make it to our destination. I am so glad that He is with me on this journey.
Praying for you and your family.
Love,
Sue

Wishing and praying you have a Blessed week. You encourage me so much. Just the other day in my prayer journal I repeated you...I asked God to kick satan back to hell. Don't stop what your doing. You inspire and encourage many more than you realize. I have said it many times even just by the music that you choose and load on your blog is a Blessing. Many days I just leave your blog open while I am posting. Even your music choices Bless me.
Again I pray you have a Blessed Week. I am off now to write a Marriage Monday post. Please come by tomorrow and read. I hope it Blesses you.
Hugs,
Sherry

I think we do need to keep it real to show others were out true Strength is; life in Him.

Thank you so much for always being real, Denise.

Love & peace,

we love you for being real.

all of us have struggles and you certainly know mine, right? but we have Jesus. that alone keeps us going. we may have problems here and there but that's normal. we have to keep our eyes on Jesus. He alone can solve any mess we have in our lives right now. He alone can heal us. so cheer up, my dear friend. (((HUGS)))

Yes, we have Him. Thank you so much for reminding me of Him again. I sometimes do everything on my own and ignore the power of Him. I should be the co-pilot and He should be the pilot. He is the leader.

We need more and more wisdom to do the right and to be the right brides for Him. He is the head and we are the body.

I will pray for you and Eddie too, dear sister.

I am sorry I had been out of town so I couldn't online. But you both are always in my heart.

Hugs,
