This perpetual cycle of lies is one of greatest tactics of our enemy. Why? Because it works so well.
As I opened my eyes this morning and slumber left my soul, these words spoke silently to me: “Glitter- proof”. Now, I don’t normally think about glitter or work with glitter nor have I been near anything glittery for years! Except at Christmas time, hanging tinsel or lights. Ah, there was that Christmas decorating project last week. However, my fascination with glitter at the time was not even engaged. I appreciated the beauty of it, but its impression was not lasting.
Relationships are hard work. Ask anyone who’s in one or trying to maintain one. They require everything we’ve got and at times, even what we don’t have. And I don’t know about you, but I’m not into “maintaining” but, instead, “growing” my relationships. I don’t just want to “get by”, I want my relationships to thrive.
But how do we do that? What can we do to nurture and build those we love and therefore strengthen our relationships instead of tear them down?
