Assume nothing, talk about everything…
By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures.Proverbs 24:3-4
There’s a difference between a wedding and marriage. Make sure you want a husband and a life together, not just a diamond & a party.
In truth, forgiveness is done in layers. You forgive someone a little at a time. And as you forgive some things, you realize other things that make you mad, and then you have to forgive those things too. Sometimes you’re forgiving like crazy, and it feels like you’re barely moving ahead!
All that is ﬁne, and as it should be. When people wrong you, try to start with love, move towards understanding, and peel away those layers of forgiveness. That may take awhile, but sometimes it takes awhile for people to come around to repentance and seeking our forgiveness.
The key thing is to just keep moving forward on this process, one step at a time. The freedom you’ll ﬁnd through forgiveness is worth the work it takes to get there. And God is with you every step of the way.
