Becoming one means embracing his gifts and covering his weaknesses. But instead we often reject his gifts and expose his weaknesses.

“It’s better to have a partner than go it alone. Share the work, share the wealth. And if one falls down, the other helps, But if there’s no one to help, tough!”
‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭4:9-10‬ ‭MSG‬‬

It’s not always going to be possible to have the relationship we want. Maybe the problem with my prickly person is MY expectations.

“If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with {your prickly person}.” (Romans‬ ‭12‬:‭18‬ my paraphrase).


Don’t know about you, but every day I need reminders: I’m the WIFE, not the HOLY SPIRIT.

“And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:26-27‬ ‭NLT‬‬
