Week 20Peter turned and saw that the disciple whom Jesus loved was following them…. When Peter saw him, he asked, “lord, what about him?”, “If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you?  You must follow me.”

I know for me, the concept this week is a little hard to swallow, only because I know I need to work on this.  When Joel and I finished it, the conclusion we came to is that this is one thing we both know, but fail to put into practice.  We both went over a few instances that happened recently that we could relate this to.

I think it is so easy to find yourself looking at all the things that are frustrating or annoying about your spouse and really want them to change or fix it.  I think we can very easily get so caught up in worrying about what they are doing wrong that we forget that we are not perfect either.

I am guilty.  I see myself looking at all the things that I wish Joel would do different. I do get caught up in it so much that I forget that I need to be working on myself and asking God to help me.  I loose focus on what I need to be doing, which is seeking God daily.  Following Jesus and what He has called me to.  Loving my husband, a sinner.  Remembering that I am sinner too!

This week I am going to prayerful consider what character flaws might be contributing to the behavior I don’t like in my husband.  I think there is so much to learn from this and something I have to work on for myself, my marriage, and my family!  I think if we focus following Jesus, reading our bibles and trying to do as He has called us, everything else falls in place.

Have a good week and SEE YOU AT JINGLE JAM TONIGHT!
