Vegas Baby!!

Las Vegas city of sin. The one place that movies are written about. You can lose a friend, steal a tiger and still get back in time to get married. People get married or divorce in Vegas. It’s a wonderful place to go and lose you for a while. My husband has been in Vegas all week.  I figured that I would manage just fine with out him for a week. I am blessed to have a family that has helped me with picking up the kids while my husband has been a way. I have managed fine this week without him. I have also prided myself in being a strong woman who could make it without a man if push came to shove.

Here is the funny thing. I realized this week that I needed my husband. I have always wanted my husband around (hence I am still married) but I have never felt like I needed him. GASP, by all women who are reading this. This is a true statement. I made a statement earlier that I consider myself a strong woman and always thought that if you said that if you needed a man, you were weak. I have come to realize that with my husband with us, that everything runs a lot more smoothly and I need him by my side. Now, at first I thought that I was being really weak. I have never told my husband that I really do need him. I am now realizing that it shows more strength to admit you need your husband then it showing that you are weak.

I do the same thing with my relationship with Jesus. I don’t really want to admit that I need God. I like having him around but I don’t really need him. I think as Christians we say that a lot. “ We love having all the perks to Jesus without any of the work.” I think we like to have Jesus “ around” but don’t want to admit that we actually need him. It’s hard to swallow your pride and admit that. I know now that it makes me stronger to say that I need Jesus then it shows weakness. I know that I can’t do this thing we call life on my own. I am still learning what it really means to follow Jesus and I stumble a lot. I still have some bad behaviors that I need to get under control. Admitting that you need someone does not change who you are. The core of my personality will always be the same but with Jesus it makes it better. He helps me with my weak areas and make my strong areas even stronger. I am leaving you with this:

Isaiah 41:10 NIV

So do not fear for I am with you, do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand

Psalm 18:32-34 NIV

It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect. He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he enables me to stand on the heights. He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze.

I hope these encourage you and help you to admit when you need your husband and God.

God Bless,
