It's been a long two days. I got home tonight and just wanted to watch a really good movie that would inspire something within me. I looked to see what was on and Diary Of A Mad Black Woman was on. I just love this movie. Tyler Perry is an amazing man of God. He has a past and he learned from that past. He finally couldn't ignore God's call and he now lives a life for God. All his movies, while have some bad language, all have a wonderful message. They all involve church and God. Great way to reach people who don't know God and are thinking they are just going to see a moive. I can only imagine how many people he has touched through his plays and movies.

I have seen this movie so many times, heard the message so many times. However, I don't think I "REALLY" heard some of it until tonight. The main character comments to her mother that her husband was her everything. Her mom tells her, "God is your everything. He is a jealous God. Don't ever put any man before God." So true. What hit me tonight that I haven't ever noticed in this movie is, she placed her husband as her number 1 priority before God. She put her husband where God should be. Her life fell apart, her husband kicked her out, her husband beat her. Both thier lives were out of step with God and both their lives were full of anger, hatred, weakness and so on. Satan had full run of thier lives and they didn't even realize it!!!! Yes it is just a movie, but how often does this exact thing happen in the real world? It happens way too often and the solution is so simple and life changing.

The other revelation that I had was that I too have always ended up putting the guy in my life before God and I never realized it until now. I finally see it now. I see everything I put before God. I see exactly what I did and I pray for God's forgiveness. I pray for God to help me NEVER do that again. Now to begin to learn the things that I have to do to ensure that I never do that again. I learned Sunday from Byron's sermon that the couple that puts God first, reads their bible, spends time with God and spends time in prayer weekly/daily has a excellent chance in not ending in divorce.

I think my heart and soul needs some good TLC and time for healing.

Blessings to all, Feather

Not putting each other before God is something that Mike and I have to be reminded of somewhat often. There are so many people that think once they find that someone, things will be great...but once you find that someone, you have to remember who you serve and that as much as you love that person and they love you, God loves both of you more. Matthew 10:37 says, "Whoever loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me."(ESV) That includes spouses. Anyway, I just wanted to share that. Love ya Feather!
