There is no really deep secret to having a happy home. It simply is letting Jesus have first place in our hearts.

May I shout that out? Shout it out because there are multitudes of unhappy homes all around us; perhaps some of us are living in one. There is a remedy.
And yes I have heard the arguments.
If he will put JESUS first I will.
Why should I be the one when he won’t?
The answer is simple.
Do you want peace or not?
One thing stands between turmoil and peace: pride — yours, mine, theirs and ours
James 4:6 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
6 But He giveth more grace; therefore He saith, “God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.”
When we feel GOD is resisting us or at least not doing what we want? There could be many reasons for His delay; even so have we carefully examined ourselves for pride in ourselves?
1 Peter 5:5 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
5 Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility; for “God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.”
Got some heavy trials? Got some miserable situations?
Seek an elder – a wise woman with some godly age on her who will share the WORD with you and then practice what the WORD says.
And not to leave the men out here. Seek out a wise man with some godly age on him who will share the WORD with you and then practice what the WORD says.
Is this remedy easy? No it’s not – that’s no secret either. If it were easy everybody would jump on it. Only the humble and the brave will take on this remedy. But you know, the end results of this remedy is a whole lot easier to handle than the results of refusing this remedy.
It’s really a no-brainer – don’t you think? 🙂
Even so let compassion move us and let us pray for one another. As my dear friend Janet says: “Life’s hard but GOD is good!”
Blessings for a holy weekend,
