Two Better Halves

“Who am I, O Sovereign Lord, and what is my family, that you have brought me this far? And now, Sovereign Lord, in addition to everything else, you speak of giving your servant a lasting dynasty! Do you deal with everyone this way, O SovereignLord?

What more can I say to you? You know what your servant is really like, Sovereign Lord. Because of your promise and according to your will, you have done all these great things and have made them known to your servant.

 “How great you are, O Sovereign Lord! There is no one like you. We have never even heard of another God like you!" 2 Samuel 7:18-22

It's this amazing relationship that constantly makes you aware of your need for your better half. 

I happen to have two better halves. Jesus and my earthly better half, G.

Learning to seperate the two and depend more on the one who matters most can be difficult. 

But the closer I grow to Christ, the more I realize how crucial my relationship is with Him. He is the only one out of the two that can love unconditionally, that sees more of me than I do myself. He is the one I will spend the rest of my life with. 

My relationship with Christ is far greater and more important than the one I have with G. 

As The Lord and I were spending time together He was telling me that I have been putting more into G than Him. That needs to change. 

My relationship with Christ should be the first and most important relationship in my life and my relationship with G is the added benefit and blessing from Christ.

The more I love and serve Christ the more I will express that love in my relationship with G.

I am always learning, but this lesson might be one of my favorite. 

I love when Jesus shows me in very visual ways the joy and benefit of our relationship and how, through our relationship, my other relationships will thrive, strengthen and grow. 

My prayer and desire is for my relationship with Christ to be so strong, that it is seen through my earthly relationships, especially in my marriage.
