Letters to my husband

Letter to my husband

Dear husband

I saw you yesterday and I know you saw me too, but you just passed me as if you hadn’t. I shouted your name really loud but you just kept walking as if I wasn’t there. Was my voice not loud enough and did you not see my smile?

Even when I walked into the house too, you behaved still with scorn. The way you looked at me and smirked your face made me cry. I could not show you though the tears in my eyes because then you could see the defeat I felt that very moment. Instead when I went to the bathroom I just laid in there and I cried. I cry a million times but I just never show you.

I don’t know where it all went wrong that you treat me worse than my own…

If You’re Lost You Can Look And You Will Find…

I know what you might be thinking. That’s the words from an old 80’s song by Cyndi Lauper, “Time After Time”!  Yes they are, but someone said them long before that song was written. But first, let me share with you a memory about that song.

I was 15 years old. It was the summer of 1984. Some called it “Puppy Love” and others called it a “Teenage Love”. Still, when things go wrong, hearts do get broken.

As I fought back tears and made myself appear as though nothing was wrong, I was coming apart inside. I turned on MTV and there was the video of “Time After Time”.

I felt encouraged to seek another chance at romance with my new ex-girlfriend! She blew my mind when she said to me that if we were meant to be together, then we would meet up in the future! (Brush off!)

I’ve never seen or have spoken to her since then. Obviously, we went in different directions. I felt lost and I began to search for something to fill my empty heart. I searched but could not find anything to fill my empty space.

I must say that I am thankful for the way it turned out because, I found my “good thing” when I found my wife, Mrs. Elicia Berry! (Glory be to God!) You see God really does have a plan that is for your good. This is where we need to have faith in Him.

I realized that I was not looking in the right places nor looking for the right thing. I began to pray and pray and pray, but I just didn’t know what to pray for or if I was praying for the right reasons.

I started to pray for guidance. The Bible says to ask and it shall be given, to seek and ye shall find, knock and it shall be open unto you. (Matthew 7:7 KJV)

What do you ask for? What are you looking for? What door do you knock on?

Jesus said, “Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”(Matthew 11:28-30 KJV)

I was looking for redemption. I was looking for forgiveness. I was looking for healing and freedom! I was looking for the truth. Jesus said,”I am the way, the truth and the life…”(John 14:6) I was lost in my life not just because of a broken heart, but because I did not know The Way.

I asked for guidance and knowledge and wisdom and an understanding of such. I started not just reading my Bible, but to study it. I began to understand John 3:16 much more. My search became a search for salvation through Jesus. To seek God and His righteousness through accepting Jesus as The Christ, The Messiah, The Living Son Of God!

If you’re lost and/or confused in your search or just do not know what or who you are searching for, all you have to do is look and you will find Jesus!

The scriptures will begin to make sense as you apply them to your daily life.

If you’re lost and/or your burdens are weighing you down; If you’re tired and feel beat down; don’t give up! look to Jesus and He will lighten your load. You will find forgiveness, redemption, freedom and PEACE!

Jesus is there. All you have to do is look, and you will find________. You fill in the blank.
