Watch the newest At the Heart with Jason Angelette, “Nourish the Love with Time”.
“Just because the honeymoon phase is over, it doesn’t mean that love is over, it’s just maturing – it’s growing into something that is much more than what it is right now. And it’s meant to be much more than what it is right now.”
“If I fundamentally believe that I’m unworthy of love, or that I’m bad, or I’m trash… why would I want to bring that forth? If I do bring that up, and that person responds with empathy or unconditional love, that’s the antidote, that’s the answer.”
“You get on your knees, you ask “Will you be my spouse for the rest of my life?” – and then all of the sudden, there’s this struggle. You’re like “Hold on – did I make a mistake? I thought it wasn’t going to be like this.”
“In our sufferings, no matter what it is, people can ask the question “Where was God?” in whatever moment, and He was there, with a broken heart, tears in his eyes, weeping and embracing you. The question is did you hear those whispers?”
“If we keep going to God with our prayers & petitions with thanksgiving, constantly to the Lord, surrendering it all to Him, it’s like these guard rails are going up that’s going to protect us from falling into the trap of despair.”
“If somebody walked in the room and told me that they loved them more than me, I’d probably want to punch them in the face. But the reality is that God loves us so much more, He’s got us so much more than I ever could.”
“God wants us to engage, and He is with us, taking that offering of whatever we’re going through, but at the same time, He’s near to us in those moments, in those struggles, that we’re not alone.”
“Us and our five kids, we’re praying for people and we’re offering up what could be tragic up to God, and we’re redeeming souls. Everybody’s praying for a miracle, I tell you what, we’ve already had a miracle.”
When we go to God, it’s not that I need to be afraid to ask for patience, because I’m afraid that if I ask for it, God’s going to give me all these opportunities for me to be patient; that’s daily life. God gives us the grace to be patient.
