As If

As if I didn’t get the message loud and clear yesterday – God’s word speaks. God speaks to us loudly.

Today, Proverbs 25:24

“It is better to live in a corner of the housetop than in a house shared with a quarrelsome wife.”

I wrote in margin – “Let me not be quarrelsome!”

Then I went on a run and just happened (HA) to listen to this podcast from Mark Driscoll!

It was in proverbs on marriage and he talked about this exact verse. Now, had I not been quarrelsome with Brad yesterday this might not have been such a big deal. So, in case I stepped on anyone’s toes lately – believe me – God steps on mine constantly.  I have already had to apologize to Brad. 🙂

Yesterday’s post hit a nerve. I think it is funny that so many people thought that post was directed to them or for them. Of course, I had some situations in mind but that fact that so many took the post personal speaks for itself. We all have friend issues, conflict issues and I obviously have an issue of being quarrelsome.

I am praying for each of you today. That we listen to God’s correction and instruction and obey.  Let’s be the like the one in the parable of the sower (also in my bible reading) who has ears to hear and eyes to see. Allow the word of the Lord to take deep root today and not fall by the wayside.

Luke 8:15 “As for that in the good soil, they are those who, hearing the word, hold it fast in an honest and good heart, and bear fruit with patience.”

  1. You are the best – I really miss getting to see you – just all too busy. Brad said you are writing on your book – I know it will be wonderful – you are so talented and such a great girl. Love you a bunch!

  2. I started to listen to that Mark Driscoll thing you posted on FB and it kept getting stuck in the same spot, but I still got to hear about a third of the message. I know it seems silly for me to listen to that since I’m not married, hehehehe. but…… well, I like it even so. 🙂 That sermon, your post…all good stuff to remember either way, single or married, right? I don’t want to be quarrelsome either. There are a lot of traits the Bible (Proverbs especially) call out in women, good traits and bad ones, that can even somehow be applied to the single woman, even if not with the same intensity. Thanks for posting.
