Encouragement...

This morning I was reading in Colossians 2....

2 My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, 3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

I was encouraged by these words. I want to have FULL riches of complete understanding with treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Don't you? Well, it is right there... encouragement for us. This is his goal, our promise! 
Life is hard. Things that happen are hard. People are hard to deal with. Family stuff can be hard. It's all hard, but we have a God that is ALL about encouragement. He wants us to KNOW the mystery of God, Christ. In the FULLNESS!!

Marriage can be hard at times, too. There are seasons in marriage of joy, sorrow, trial, excitement, newness, frustration and so on... YET God in his infinite wisdom takes time to encourage us through his word. I don't always spend as much time as I should in his word, but every. single. time. I am refreshed to read the words of LIFE! I want to encourage you to spend sometime today soaking up his words! Biblegateway.com is an online bible if you don't have one!! You will find truth, life and gain wisdom!

And because no post should go without a photo...
