I digress about me and shift focus to you. After all, this blog is about you. You are the inspiration behind my writings. I see you struggling to make it through some of the toughest years of your life. I see you fighting back the tears and forcing a smile. I feel your pain when you get frustrated about your spouse for not listening to you. I feel your joy when you receive a bouquet of flowers at work. I understand what it is like to be happy and confused at the same time. You want more out of your marriage, but you don't know what else to do. You want to deepen your spirituality, but you struggle to find your purpose and time.
So, I wrote Surviving The First Five for you. Surviving the First Five is meant to help you see past your situation. It is meant to guide you into a deeper relationship with God and a stronger bond within your marriage. Surviving the First Five is your story as much as it is mine. The facts may change, but the problems are universal. You want to let things go, so you turn to the chapter on Reflection and Happiness. You want to communicate better with your spouse, so you turn to the section on communication, distinguishing needs versus wants. You want to love again, so you turn to the chapters on commitment and submission.
Regardless of what you are searching for, there is something in Surviving the First Five that can help and inspire you to seek God more. I can write in a journal to release my frustrations, but I write my blogs and book to inspire you to let go and let God. Ministry is not for my benefit, but for yours. I write so that you know that someone understands your pain and is rooting for you. I write to let you know that no matter what obstacles come your way, you can overcome them all. I write so that God can get the glory and you can learn more about His greatness.
All that I do, I do for you. God gives me the talent, you give me the inspiration. As long as you are going through life's journey, I'll be here with words of encouragement to get you through it.
