Hallelujah, praise the living God for another day to pray for you all and be used by Him. Today I ask that you consider this, from Gary Smalley & John Trent in their classic book The Blessing. If you have not read this, I strongly suggest it and recommend it.
“In a world awash with insecurity and in search of acceptance, we need biblical anchors to hold on to.”
“…unmet needs for personal acceptance can keep a person emotionally chained to his or her parents’ home, unable to genuinely cleave to another person in a lasting relationship. For this reason many couples never get off the ground in terms of marital intimacy.”
Genesis 2:23-24 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
23 The man said,
“This is now bone of my bones,
And flesh of my flesh;
She shall be called Woman,
Because she was taken out of Man.”
24 For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined (cleaved) to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.
