Romans 3:10-12 ” There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands, no one who seeks God. All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one.”

We all have unrealistic expectations when it comes to others, and ourselves for that matter. We live in a very broken world, filled with broken people and broken relationships. The reality is, we are all sinners looking for comfort and contentment…not to be confronted with unlovely people who hurt us and deeply flawed relationships that leave us alone and confused. This brokenness is evident everywhere we look and with whoever we communicate with. So what can we do? First is to be honest with God, others, and ourself. We can be responsible to someone, but not for them…and the only person you’re ever going to change is yourself with God’s help. Next, never be satisfied with the status of an estranged relationship…or as C.S. Lewis put it, “One of the biggest problems for Christians is not that we are dissatisfied, but that we are far too easily satisfied.” Most people hate confrontation…but Jesus confronted people all the time with love and truth, and we must follow His lead. Finally, never lose your joy. People are going to disappoint you, attack you, and even abandon you…but always remember that Jesus is there right in the middle of whatever you are facing.

    • So wonderful to hear from you dear friend! I was just thinking of you because we plan, God willing, to come to Idaho Falls this Summer to visit friends and family…and we’d love to visit with you if possible! The time frame is still up in the air, but maybe late July. Text me your cell# so I can get ahold of you. My phone # is still the same. Love hearing from you! God bless!
