For once, It's about You!


Relationships come in all different forms: parent/child, sister, brother, friendship, fellowship, companionship, acquaintance, co-worker, etc. There are a number of them, each one managed however seen fit by the ones participating in that particular relationship. So seeing that each is vastly different and holds its own unique value to each individual, is it possible that any of them have a direct correlation to the other. I mean really what is presented as a commonality for each relationship you hold in your life? You are. So let’s start with you.
In the beginning it was you and the relationship that wasn’t by your choice but given, you and the Word that gave you purpose and meaning. Now just to be clear I will explain what this Word is. It is best described in John chapter 1:
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

If you notice with me this scripture states The Word as being God, so when I say the Word I’m actually saying God.  But also notice that in the beginning even for Him was the Word. He too had this same relationship upon His existence without it there would not even be God in His own being. This concept brings on a whole new meaning of made in His likeness. (We will discuss in a future lesson in detail) This Word said that you will have life and it was so. I know most of us will separate our relationship with God from others because of who He is. I mean He is all knowing, powerful, forgiving, renders unconditional love. He’s just different from everyone else but are you not involved within this relationship. You are the common place in all your relationships so you hold the key to their success from the first one you have ever had to the last one you will ever have and why not set a precedent with the very first, the one relationship that deemed you worthy of Life. So I think it is safe to say that You are important and acknowledging where you came from, how, and why will set you on the path to defining you, the one who holds the key to your relationships.

Questions I would like for you to think on until the next lesson:

What do you know about where you came from? Is God a subject of relation for you in this regard? How well do you manage this relationship?

Feel free to comment and ask questions. I encourage this.

Tell Me

I Just want to open the floor before I begin for all those who care to share:
What do you think is important to have in any relationship of any kind?

Don't forget to read Lesson 1: For once, It's about You!

Just Me and Him

Growing into adulthood I could never quite figure out why I was always so different, why I didn’t care for the same things the majority did, or even why I felt when those were in need. I been told “Grace, you’re just a good person” Not that I don’t believe them but it had to be something more. I have been to a point where I just don’t trust men any more (Human kind) but I never stop having faith in human nature. (sounds twisted huh?) Why can’t I just say forget this world and all things in it!!! That’s when I was reminded (Let’s just say by something divine) that when I was younger I used to always say, “I wana be just like my father.” Yeah, every girl looks up to her dad and mine, well I thought he was perfect. Yeah he has been through a lot and made his share of mistakes but out of all his faults I saw his passion more. I admired his relationship with God and His will. He studied and made it his life to do for Him. I wanted to be just like my “father”.  I wanted to be blessed (Happy) beyond measure and posses insurmountable peace.  I was 4years old by the way. I remember saying these things as if I knew that it would be needed in the future. It was pointed out to me that I have two fathers: an earthy and a heavenly. Now I didn’t specify but how many of you know that I didn’t need to (insert Amen here). Well I didn’t because I believe as a child you know exactly what you want and nothing seems impossible because you posses everything (We lose this quality when we get older).  All this is my testimony and now I don’t ask why because I am my Father and He is me. I speak for us. I speak to make His Word flesh. My one True relationship is the one I have with my Father and It is my example for all the ones after.  I share with you my Truths on Relationships.
