Confession: In my blogging sometimes I’m more concerned about the messenger (me) than the message (God) … yuk, I know. Yesterday I had prepared a short post in honour of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday. I chickened out. I was worried that people would think I was trying to capitalize on the assassination of a great man, instead of the fact that his teachings can have a profound effect on your life, and moreover in your marriage, if you’ll take to heart what he says.
Foolish, I know. First, not trusting God – big NoNo there. But also you readers – I didn’t assume the best in your hearts and for that I’m sorry.

Satan ONE / Robyn ZERO
God, “Got my number.” You know when you are reading your Bible and you can feel that conviction, deep down inside of you? Well today, I knew. I knew that God knew – and He knew that I knew, He knew.
Now am I trying to win the favour of men, or of God? Do I seek to please men? If I were still seeking popularity with men, I should not be a bond servant of Christ (the Messiah). -Gal 1:10
SO for today, Jan 21/14, “Thank You Lord for Your mercy being new EVERY day and the opportunities to come back around and do it right!” This is the post I prepared yesterday, may it bless your life and marriage!
January 20th marks the birth of Martin Luther King, Jr. I know his main message is that of a civil rights activist but for me, his words became very personal in my marriage.
He talked his message. He walked his message. He died for his message. This is what Christ did.
… and it’s what you and I are called to do. When we look beyond ourselves and the wants and needs of our flesh, that love and forgiveness that Martin Luther King, Jr. lived , taught and died for will start to trickle into our marriages. The more we focus on Christ’s life and actions the more we’ll be able to really grasp what it means to die for a cause greater than yourself, just like Martin Luther King, Jr. did. Before long God will turn that trickle of love into a tidal wave.
