Something 'different' that my husband and I do now is apologise and forgive freely. If we have an argument or disagreement about something, immediately after we will both apologise, forgive and move on from there. nnThis is a big difference to a few years ago when we (or more like I) would let things fester and we could give each other the silent treatment for days or end up saying nasty things to one another. All this did was allow something small and trivial to become a big deal. nnBut I thank God that through Him softening our hearts and our approach to conflict we have learnt to: nn•“Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath,nEphesians 4:26 NKJV nn•bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do.nColossians 3:13 NKJV nn•Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love.nEphesians 4:2 NLT nnIsn't the word of God full of good, practical instructions for living? nNow we just have to try and follow them daily. nnGod BlessnThe Cabes 😊❤

So when He had washed their feet, taken His garments, and sat down again, He said to them, “Do you know what I have done to you? You call Me Teacher and Lord, and you say well, for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you. Most assuredly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master; nor is he who is sent greater than he who sent him. If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.nJohn 13:12‭-‬17 nn"How can I wash the feet of others?" nThis is something my husband started including in his prayers after reading the passage above last Easter. nnI was only recently reminded of this line whilst watching my husband take care of us when we had covid and when I was recovering from child birth. He took care of us even though he was also suffering from symptoms of covid too. He was washing our feet. nnJesus has set the example for us, He didn't just say it, He literally washed the dusty feet of His disciples. And this is what we should be doing for others as well, humbling ourselves and serving others as our Lord and Savior has done. nWe can humbly serve others in our homes, workplaces, or wherever we have been placed. This will allow us to share Jesus to those around us, sometimes without even saying a word. nnSo maybe you can ask yourself or pray that prayer today and ask God - "How can I wash the feet of others?"nnGod BlessnCabes ❤

Friendship is complex. Fluid. And no one relationship is alike. Each one has its own unique dance - with steps and moves and music and rhythm. And it’s not until we lead and follow, and then follow and lead, that the dance becomes graceful, elegant and smooth. In friendship our hearts need to breathe and figure out how to respond to each other. And sometimes the space and in-between moments make our renewed connection all the sweeter when it finally comes around again.nn~ Jacque Watkins

It is God’s hope (and ours) that we be someone who influences many by influencing only one.☝🏽 nnWhether it be 𝒐𝒏𝒍𝒚 𝒐𝒏𝒆 friend from the high school days, 𝒐𝒏𝒍𝒚 𝒐𝒏𝒆 colleague from work, 𝒐𝒏𝒍𝒚 𝒐𝒏𝒆 young person at church, 𝒐𝒏𝒍𝒚 𝒐𝒏𝒆 neighbour from the block, or 𝒐𝒏𝒍𝒚 𝒐𝒏𝒆 mom from coffee mornings. nnJesus preached to the multitudes but had 12 followers during his ministry on earth. It’s not a numbers game. nnMay we share the love of Christ by caring for someone’s heart ❤️ by listening to the Holy Spirit and spreading the joy found in Jesus. To many or only one. nn𝑻𝒉𝒓 𝒈𝒓𝒆𝒂𝒕 𝒄𝒐𝒎𝒎𝒂𝒏𝒅𝒎𝒆𝒏𝒕 𝒊𝒔 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒈𝒓𝒆𝒂𝒕 𝒄𝒐𝒎𝒎𝒊𝒔𝒔𝒊𝒐𝒏.nn🕊🌿💞🙏🏽📍

Recently I read a pastor’s experience about marriage, where he confessed that he felt he was doing better as a pastor than as a spouse. I wondered if we admit that to ourselves at times, where we justify our actions saying that we are doing God’s work and pleasing the Lord which is also important. Do we find ourselves compartmentalising our faith and have a preference of one over the other? “I am a Christian first, a spouse second, a parent third, an employee fourth.” This wise pastor discovered that regardless of our roles, Christianity is not a separate role - it is our identity, “I am a Christian spouse. I am a Christian parent. I am a Christian employee.” nnThe danger of seeing ourselves as Christian servants first and spouses second is we can find ourselves believing the lie: “If I can be a good pastor, youth leader, Sunday school teacher, I can please God even though I am not the best husband or wife, etc.” But that’s not the case in marriage.nnThe reason we cannot please the Lord while failing as a husband or wife is that our Christianity is directly related to the way we treat our spouses. Our marriages are outpourings of our relationships with Christ:n* In Matthew 7:16, Jesus asked, “Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles?”n* In James 3:11-12, the apostle James asked, “Does a spring send forth fresh water and bitter from the same opening? Can a fig tree, my brethren, bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs?” nnThe point of these verses is that we reveal our Christianity by the way we live. Our lives are our ministry! As Jesus pointed out: “You will know them by their fruits” (Matthew 7:16). And right (righteous) living—𝒊𝒏𝒄𝒍𝒖𝒅𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒅𝒐𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒆𝒗𝒆𝒓𝒚𝒕𝒉𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒘𝒕𝒉 𝒍𝒐𝒗𝒆 - will bear right fruit which can only be produced through a strong relationship with Christ. nn🕊🌿💞🙏🏽📍

𝑾𝒉𝒂𝒕 𝒊𝒔 𝒔𝒖𝒃𝒎𝒊𝒔𝒔𝒊𝒐𝒏? (as in Eph 5:22)📍nI wanted to share a practical example from my experience to help understand what God meant by submission.nnWhen I got married, I decided to keep my maiden name. My reasons were that I could (my husband had no objections) and it was mine for most of my life! It was my identity, and everyone knew me by that name. What I discovered was that it made my life difficult. When I travelled with my young son, I had to produce his birth certificate and my marriage certificate to prove that I was his mother (and not a kidnapper) because our passports had different names. I also had to provide additional evidence when opening a bank account, applying for university, etc. When I became a British citizen 10 years later, I decided to keep my married name at last. nnIn Matt 19:5-6, Jesus mentioned that a man must leave his father and mother to join his wife, and the two will become one flesh. And what God joined as one, no man can separate. By keeping my maiden surname, we were not one because we had two separate names and we were living as individuals rather as one flesh. Of my own doing! nnSo by giving up my maiden name, and taking up my husband's surname I have come under his authority and leadership. Now that we are both walking with the Lord, we have come under God's ultimate authority and leadership for us as a couple. And this is one practical example of what submission means to me, to accept my husband as the head of our family, I had to accept his surname and give up mine. nnWe live in a time and age where we can keep our maiden names. It is a way of holding onto who we think we are but not who God created you to be. It might have made it difficult for wives to submit to their husbands, as it was in my case. As a believer, if you proclaim to be saved by Jesus and pray in His name, then in His name we are to submit to our husbands. nnPerhaps, the most obvious lesson for me was that by taking my husband's name, my life (and ours) became easier. And that was what God intended for marriage, that becoming one unit would lighten our burden and He could do more in us, together, in unity and love. nnBlessings, Sinclairs 🕊
