Relationships are complicated.
We could all use a bit of help. Umm, well, maybe a great deal of help.
Here is my bit of encouragement for you today.
Read this book. Lots of honest, biblical wisdom rests between these covers.
If you are at all like me you often slip into survival mode. Being a caregiver has to be up there on the top ten list for stressful job descriptions.
I really do believe God has called us to move beyond survival mode.
That is a mindset I have struggled with for years.
I know God is working endurance and patience in my life. 1 Peter 1
But I don’t want to just “grin and bear it.”
Quite frankly, being “conformed to the image of His Son” is a process that requires the pain of bearing our cross, whatever that may be.
But again, I don’t want to just grin and bear it. Although some days are definitely like that here. Especially in winter. If you ever want to be a huge encouragement that is the season!
Reading this book is like going for that much delayed doctor’s visit. Not always fun, but you get help for your problems. Why?
Check out these chapter names.
- Understanding your heart struggle
- Following the Wonderful Counselor
- Building relationships by identifying suffering
- Discovering where change is needed

“Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things GROW UP into him who is Head, that is Christ. From him the whole body, joined together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.” Ephesians 4:15-16
