I am forever grateful of my salvation!

God is speaking and He is doing it through love. Let me explain… I am a new Father and my love for my daughter has consumed me!! Don’t think it has diminished my love for Jesus, no but it has catapulted my love into the stratosphere. I give Him all the Glory because I know it is in Him that I can even see my daughter. My wife is divorcing me and tried to not let me see my daughter but God prevailed. Seven months I went without seeing her and then the Judge gave me 3 days a week and a sleep over twice a month. His faithfulness will melt the human heart and He never forgets. I now don’t remember the feeling of being alone, without her because today I am in love with loving her and being a part of my daughters life Amen!!

Let me show you how He (God) has been using this consumption of Love to show me the relationship of a Father. When my daughter was one years old and just starting to walk I would kick things in her path out of her way and God showed me that He was doing that for me as well. Despite what is in your way God will order your steps, He will make sure the road ahead though there are trials to just keep walking and He will provide a way through it!

Also one day my daughter came home from being out for awhile and she was trying to take off her coat like a good girl and she couldn’t get the zipper down. So she stomped her feet and threw a tantrum so I said “Come to daddy and I will take it off you” And she stayed where she was until she realized that unless she came to me that jacket wasn’t coming off. I wasn’t just going to jump up because of her tantrum so when she finally came I took it off her in 1 second. It was then God downloaded to me that I am that way with him. When you have a burden instead of coming to Jesus you throw a tantrum and want help from people or you want people to notice your distress but all you have to do is come to Daddy and He will take that burden off you in 1 second.

God is speaking to you, He’s faithful and He speaks because He loves you so much. Let us find the time to wait on Him today and come to Him and watch are burdens come off us in seconds and we will conquer things like He promised. Through our Lord Jesus Christ all things are possible and I believe this in Jesus name. May God fill you with the Holy Spirit and open our ears so we can hear what He is saying at all times.

Stay tuned for my full testimony…

Stay with Him it’s where the peace is! Yes even in your trial you can have peace. You don’t have to wait until they are over just call out His name JESUS! God is a rewarded to those who diligently seek him. Amen -Joe G!

I’m going to talk about the season that God is working on me right now. It’s has been a cleansing period of my life. I can see through the books I have been picking up, visions, dreams and other things. I have been seeing brides everywhere. In the Word it talks about the bride of Christ. A real marriage with Christ. Every time I saw anything about marriage I use to cringe. To me, if marriage was anything like some people I know, I wanted nothing to do with it. All I would see is one person or both couple in the relationship complaining, criticize, yelling, disappointing, controlling, ungrateful, disrespected, unloved, used and abused. Complaining is the worst for me. I think if someone complaining enough that they may become ungrateful. Nothing will make them happy and always thinking it could have been done better. God has been changing my heart about marriage. He has been showing me that marriage with the love between two believing hearts are to be use for God’s glory, not to be used by the other person. “Our love is a testimony of God’s glory.” One night I was talking to one of my friend’s dad about my unsaved family. The view from my family about my life was she doesn’t have a job, she doesn’t have money, she doesn’t have boyfriend, she doesn’t have her own place. To them I just seem like a loser. To God, He saw chance to glorify Himself. He had to physical and emotional brake me to build me. He didn’t want anything that I built with my own hands. All the things I built before I know Him, was for myself not Him. To Him it was a tainted offering. So He took everything away. I’m at the point of Him building. It hurts! Have you ever got shot by a nail gun? It’s not fun. Every time He pointed out another character flaw. It’s like another nail into the foundation. As painful as it is, I have to go through this to be a spotless bride of Jesus Christ. To be faithful to Him, to trust Him, to respect Him, to show Him honor, to be thankful, to be grateful, to be in awe by Him, to be head over heels in love with Him. This marriage with Him will be the most important one of my life. And if someone wanted to marry me, they would have to go through Christ first. Cause I’m not my own to give up. I really don’t know if he is prepare me for a spiritual marriage or a physical one. Either way I’m thankful to have Him in my life, my love. -tsuLife Author

Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her

Love: adore, idolize, prize, treasure, cherish

Ephesians 5:33 Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.

Respect: regard, relation, esteem, honor, admiration

Husbands, that best way to see how to love your wife. Look at the relationship what Jesus did for us. How does Jesus treat you? Does He tell you He loves you? Does He forgive you? Does He encourage you to move forward? He is our adorer, which He is willing to admirer, beau, suitor, wooer. These are all things that women want in there marriage. Women don’t want to be fixed, just heard. Listening is most women want. To be heard and for someone willing to protect and do anything to make her feel wanted. Jesus wants us to know that we are wanted by Him. A wife want to know that she is wanted by her husband.

Wives, respect is what man see as love. To be build up, to be trusted, to be supported, to be appreciate. To be admired by His wife is all the love a man needs. The same way we honor God with gratefulness towards all that Christ has done for us. Husbands want the same respect. To feel like He has a fan at home when he gets off of work. That the stress of the day can fall to the waist side when he comes home. To hear, “you have been faithful to this family, you are doing wonderful job and I’m here for you.” The way a wife treat her husband can effect how he conduct his life as father, husband and worker. It says a foolish wife will tear her house down with her own hands. The man is the foundation of the family, every negative word spoken into your husband tear him down, if he goes down the whole home will go down with him and you in it.

Marriage is the glorification of God’s love to His people. Marriage should be a mirror image of Christ and the church. Christ being the husband, the core connection between God and people. Church being the wife, the passing on Christ to the next generation. -tsuLife Author
