LOVING YOUR IMPERFECTIONS! A Taste of Heaven Couples Retreat.

Do perfect spouses, marriages, families exist? From personal experience,  I will say no, I haven’t been in contact with any under heaven, but I know PERFECT LOVE exist, and when it comes in contact with imperfection,  it has a way of making up for every fault, abuse, mistake, etc through forgiveness that comes from anyone that has allowed himself or herself to become the channel of unconditional love.

Sam Keen says “You come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by seeing an imperfect person perfectly.” 

This is very true and also very practical, however a lot of Marriages are not working today, because we are looking for a perfect spouse.

Most of the time we are trained to go into marriage with conditional love rather than unconditional, and so it becomes very easy to love our spouse when he or she meets up with our expectations of them, and when they don’t or can’t, it’s just logical to stop loving, and let them know through words or actions how disappointed we are.

This happens because we are also looking for someone who will complete us, rather than compliment us in marriage. We have this deep feeling that we are incomplete as a person, and we are right about that, but to think its another person that will complete us is wrong, because only our Creator can do that, while our spouse can only compliment us.

At this A Taste of Heaven Couples Retreat tagged Loving Your Imperfections, our goal is to help married couples see each other from God’s Perspective, and start seeing the imperfect spouse perfectly.

Self-Evaluation

 

Sometimes you just really ponder if you are worth up to something or nothing.

A task or quality of life. …

Not as in the case of low self-esteem but in the case of knowing if you can get going when the going gets really tough.

Champions are those who have actually faced there fears, who have not allowed the opinion of other humans like them define them.

Over-comers have identified what in life works for them and are going strictly by it.

 

Who are your friends?
What is their mindset?
Who are you rolling with?
What are you when u are alone?

What are your values, have you even defined them?
Who do you listen to?
Who can correct you?

Are you really who you say you are? Are you living in the shadow of what others portray or perceive you to be?

It’s insanity to deceive others and also deceive yourself,Know your own truth and own it!

Yes, we only live once, but how do we live that one life that we have to live just once? ( almost confusing right? I know yeah….)

Do we gratify the flesh and subdue the spirit?
Take it from here and back the spiritual controls the physical!!!

You are allowed to fall, but don’t lie down there… GET UP!!

You can make mistakes but work tirelessly to correct them and never make them again!

You can fight distractions, YES YOU CAN: identify your area of greed and deal with it, always tell yourself the truth!!

STARVE your distractions!!

In 2019, I am facing my fears,breaking barriers, standing above limitations!!

What about you?

It takes 21 days to form an habit, consistency is key for every notable change or performance

It’s already 28days after we said happy New Year…..how far? are your resolutions still intact?

Reflections of AroHa

So I was thinking and then I thought to ask

Which would you prefer?

Relationship that comes with shivers (this sizzling kind of love that makes you feel fly,high and butterflies buzzy and crazy all the time)

or

a relationship that comes with money and nothing else but just available money to spend around the world 😁

Take Action NOW

A stitch in time they say saves 9…I have had many occurrences where it has saved 1,000,000.

Recently I have come to see(realize) that ignorance and procrastination kill vision,dreams,goals, aspirations and destiny!!

What is that thing you need to do?

What is that research you need to embark on?
What’s that information you need to know?
What is that skill you need to acquire?

And when you finally have the answers you don’t only do it, you do it at the right time…do it IMMEDIATELY!!

You dont know the height you can reach until you FLY!!
You can soar higher and farther than the others…greater than you have ever imagined; just choose to be proactive!!

Paint the scenario in your mind, outline the certainties and uncertainties, deal with the risk, do provisioning for possible losses and FLY!!

Do that thing right now!!
With all the fears still go ahead and do it,line upon line precept upon precepts a lil here a lil there…
As it goes on, consistently, other aspects begin to unfold!!

Fear goes away, the light begins to penetrate even if it comes as rays initially, don’t worry the intensity will definitely get stronger!

Don’t ever regret the lost time, opportunities, advantages,positions, and whatever it is that you might have misplaced or wasted,you should learn from it, self examine yourself, outline your mistakes and lapses….know them like you know your right hand so that you won’t go that route ‘again’
you won’t make that kind of bad choice ‘again’
AND
you would do stuff at the right time.

Feel bad if you have to. ..cry if you have to, dont ever suppress your emotions!!!

Have HOPE…. dont ever loose it!!

The kind of HOPE that does not despair….the one that JESUS gives me….”because He lives I can face tomorrow”

Let Love reign supreme in your heart, I mean don’t be filled with resentment….purge yourself of all hate…

Love yourself so you can love others too.

There is no substitute for life ….you gotta live it right this very first time!

Do you mind sharing what you have done at the right time that has saved you a lot?

Or what you did not do that cost you so much?

Please feel free to share this at the comment section!

Be encouraged!!!

Value Relationships

We sometimes do not appreciate others to the fullest capacity at which we should.

Some are Lucky because they have the chance to re-think and re-evaluate so they can finally admire others and appreciate roles they have played in their lives.

This thought process of acknowledging the role of people is stirred by memories of people that have transcended the shores of mortals and it has become impossible to see, feel, touch or laugh with them anymore. At least not in this territory called “Earth“.

Other set of people are those that due to life happenings you became far apart, living in different continent with a new way of life and other things that makes us to miss each others daily activities.

There are others who due to our resolutions and goals have separated us and reduced the intimacy in our relationships.

We should often make the best use of every time and situation we have and make the best of relationships, be it family, workplace or any other.

Cherish the friends you can literally touch,hug, smile with and at, gist and sleep beside, these moments won’t last forever.

Take not for granted those far away that you can still visit, check up on them.
Appreciate the ones you can call, face time, video call and Skype.

For the ones that have due to resolution or decision become strangers, you can only wonder or try to understand why it has become so, after which you will choose either to cherish the past times or do away with the memories.

For those you cannot see anymore , we can pray that they rest in peace, miss them and then pray for them once again.

To those that have lost a loved one either to death, bad relationship or personal decision I pray for the fortitude to bear the Loss and Pain.

I also pray for you :strength to carry on!!

My people take the comment section of this page to mention that person you miss, pray for that person you lost

Message that person that is still alive!

Profess your Love, show how much you care!!

Make that call!!! Appreciate those that are still near and dear to your heart!!!

Selah !!
