What I’m Learning

I have been inspired by the one and only Boyd Bettis.

At 24, I realize how much I need to cherish the ones closest to me.

I’m getting married to an amazing woman on June 14th, 2008. I’m learning about how to be a spiritual leader in our relationship. It is so easy at times to spend time leading others in ministry, talking with parents/praying for them, and visiting hospitals, etc.

God is teaching me that I can do all of that and totally miss the importance of being all that God wants in my relationship with Cassidy. With the reality of getting married soon (which I’m totally pumped about) I realize the importance of making Christ the center of my life more and more each day.

I suppose the best way to summarize what I’m trying to say is…

The people closest to me do not always get the right kind of love or attention from me that they deserve.

Anybody else relate to this in ministry and life?

  1. Oh most def..I can relate to your message..It is so easy to help, give lots of your time to others in need, or when you are angry with someone it is easier, and most often you forgive them faster than you would with a loved one or someone close to you such as a spouse..often times I wonder to that myself..why is it easier to give so much of myself to others yet, not always give the best of myself to the ones who are most important in my life?..and one of the answers to that is because a lot of times we think, they will always be there so we at times take them for granted..I am learning to tell my family why I appreciate them everyday! ..I think you are going to do wonderful Josh..Cassidy is an amazing girl..and I am so happy for you guys!!!
