It Is Better To Seek To UNDERSTAND Than To Be UNDERSTOOD.

Both are good. Understanding is better. It puts you in control. Some people may never understand you and there is always a frustration that comes with that. Take back the keys to your piece of mind by seeking understanding. That way, YOU'LL have the information and YOU can make YOUR decisions based on that information. Bottom line.. you're in the driver seat.

Proverbs 4:7 - Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all your getting get understanding.

Don't Let "What Happened The Last Time" Mold Your Future.

Virtually every relationship will at some point have a disagreement. The thing that makes a disagreeable MOMENT become a PERIOD of disagreement is the Grandfather clause. This is when you incorporate the last disagreement (or disagreements) you've had with your current one. It's when you remember how irate felt the last time, how you held your peace when you really wanted to say something the last time, or how you never really got over what they did or said the LAST TIME. Your current disagreement may really NOT be that bad and could be solved easily if only you could get over how much you don't like this person based on ... you guessed it ... the last time. The Grandfather clause in disagreements will always keep you at odds. Instead, deal with each issue separately and realistically. Be honest with yourself about whether you are really working to get past it or if you're just pouting. Relationships are for adults and disagreements must be handled as such. Don't selectively become a child just because you can't MAKE a person do what you want them to do.

1 Corinthians 13:11 - When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

It's Time To Do More Than Just "Get By".

Some people will never be motivated to work on their inside because their outside has gotten them by just fine so far. 20, 30 and 50 year marriages successfully make it because their biggest assets were more than her curves or the contents of his wallet. You can certainly get what you want with them, but you won't keep what you need. There simply must be more inside than out.

1 Samuel 16:7 - Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.

A REaction Is Like A REflection.

In life, every action has a reaction. You can control the action. You can NOT control the reaction. You can only cause it. Like dropping a pebble in the pond, you can control the drop but not the ripples. You can only cause them. A REaction is like a REflection. The latter can't exist without the former. As life coach Robin May says, ‘You can choose your choice, but you can’t choose your consequence’. Choose wisely.

Are You Going In The Same Direction?

When you marry a person, you marry their past, present and future. Too many of us get married off of the present alone. That's why marriage can't be entered into lightly. You have to have the foresight to know where that person is GOING and determine if you are interested in going in the same direction. Life happens and some things change along the way (physical appearance, financial status , birth of children, death of relatives etc.), but if you both are committed to going in the same direction you're more likely to make it. Pastor Hart Ramsey says it best, 'The number 1 rule in having a successful marriage is to pick a direction and commit to travelling together'. If you're considering marriage, remember this, it's not just where they are now that matters. You have to know where they're going. Otherwise you could have a beautiful present, but a miserable future.

Amos 3:3 - Can two people walk together without agreeing on the direction?

Finding A New Perspective.

Sometimes it's not what you're looking at, but HOW you're looking at it that's the problem. When you can't change your circumstance, you can change your perspective about it. Ask God to give you proper illumination about that situation. Things tend to look a little different in the 'Light'.

2 Kings 6:20 As soon as they had entered Samaria, Elisha prayed, "O LORD, now open their eyes and let them see."...

Today, Dare To Believe God!

The past is a great teacher, but be careful not to learn the wrong thing. Sometimes negative experiences can alter our expectations and we're afraid to trust God because the past was such a disappointment. However God has promised to meet our need not according to what happened 'last time', but according to His riches in glory.

Philippians 4:19 And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.

Never Forget Who You Represent.

Every person you meet immediately becomes your PR Agent. YOUR actions determine what message (good or bad) they promote about you. Yes, every person. Even if they don't know your name. How many times have you talked about the 'jerk' that cut you off in traffic or the 'nice person' that helped you when you dropped your stuff? Never forget Who you represent. Don't be that person that makes all of us look bad.

Matthew 5:16 - In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
