"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion — to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair."~from ISAIAH 61 Bible verse for this Blog

APOLOGY to READERS who followed a SEARCH to HERE & didn't find it

On July 18, 2017, I drafted almost 3000 blog posts that I had published since 2008 when I began blogging, rather than edit each one. So if you clicked here from somewhere else and ended up with the post unavailable or error, I am sorry but this is why. It'd be too much work for me to go back and fix them. There's an explanation on 7/19/17 as I'm still learning.

I definitely need to pay attention in this lesson from


Most of my married life of 40+ years

would have benefitted greatly from

A Marriage Counselor

daily and we even made a few attempts

though unsuccessful

I always learned more on marriage

and very thankful for the help:

Christian and others.


offers us the best lesson & truths about marriage.

This week, I will gain much counsel from


on Marriage & counseling.

Recently I also have greatly benefitted from

Therapy & Theology


*Lysa TerKeurst, Dr. Joel Muddamalle & Jim Cress - 
a licensed professional counselor


Let's begin with this Week's Scriptures:

Matthew 19:1-6; Genesis 2:18-25; Ephesians 5:22-33; Romans 7:1-3; 1 Peter 3:1-7

through these segment/subtitles of this week's devotion

 "A Blessed Invention" (marriage)

"God's Default Position"

"Understand God's Plan for Marriage"

"Remember God's Purpose for Marriage"

"Commit to God's Permanence for Marriage"

"Lord, as a person who's married (or as one who's single), I give thanks that You are the inventor of and the sustainer of marriage ... "

Since I have little success in this area, I will leave this to *Lysa's team & God's Word,

along with the advice in the words I read from James Merritt this week.
