Think of relationships like a circle. It is a two person ordeal. Never one sided for if the one sided relationship ever worked it be just one way, not both. You can not make a full circle if it is one sided because all you would have is the letter "C". You can not have a relationship with God if you do not allow that circle to complete. One sided relationships never, and can never work. It is a partnership. A two in one if you will.


As God is three in one, He says that you and your spouce are made one as a whole. So therefore, can it work if you only allow one side to win? Never will it be so.


Allow what God has taught you about a relationship with Him, to work in the relationship between you, and your special other.

Perhaps 'ordeal' is not quite the ideal term to describe a relationship. For me, a healthy physical and spiritual relationship is between the man, the woman and God. A love triangle. I do like the circle analogy though. I also agree that one-sided relationships never work out. Glad to have you back with us too and I hope that all is well with you.

Very true my brother, very true. We must have that garden to be tended to and mended to if we are to what? Work together as a whole in life both brothers and sisters alike.

deal, undertaking, endeavor, project, effort - pick one (not that you can go back and change it since the five minute edit limit is probably up anyway).

It cannot be edited, but it can be amended, appended, suffixed, post-scripted...
