Bethany has posted the newest Mad Lib. Last night she told me when Ethan may go back to Iraq.
I got this from Lauryn.
It’s cloudy and drizzling rain outside. And I feel just like it looks out there.
More from The Bride Wore White, by Dannah Gresh:
The beauty of sexual love is being camouflaged by big fat lies. That, of course, is because Satan has entered onto the scene. John 8:44 tells us the true character of Satan. The devil “was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no such truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” What is Satan? He is a big fat liar. And I think his favorite lies relate to your sexuality because of its powerful symbolism. (We will talk more about that later. For now, know that the true meaning of sex is so far beyond the pitiful meaning this world offers that it’ll blow your mind if you’ve never heard about it!)
I like to compare the way he lies to you and me about sex to the way he lied to Eve aout the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Why? God’s Word tells us that everything in the Garden of Eden was created by God’s own hand. It also tells us that He is incapable of making anything that is not good. So it is very possible that the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil would have had quite an interesting and noble purpose had Eve simply waited for God to reveal it to her in His time. Interesting thought, don’t you think? My friend, sex is like that. It is such a good and wonderful thing that God has created if we wait for God’s timing to enjoy it. Satan knows that one of the most beautiful things in our world is the sexual union between a husband and a wife when they wait to enjoy it after their wedding. He wants to rob you of that, so he lies to you.”
