Five Things You Can Do Now To Improve Difficult Relationships

1. No matter their behavior, Think of the other person as VALUABLE, IMPORTANT…

Don’t be selfish; don’t live to make a good impression on others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourself. (4), Don’t think only about your own affairs, but be interested in others, too, and what they are doing. Philipians 2:3, (NLT)

And why worry about a speck in your friends’ eye when you have a log in your own? (4) How can you think of saying, ‘Let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye, when you can’t see past the log in your own eye? (5) Hypocrite! First get rid of the log from your own eye; then perhaps you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friends’ eye. Matthew 7:3

Think of the person as valuable…God loves them.

2. What (1) one complaint has the another made about your behavior? Spend a total of 5 minutes, thinking of how to improve.

If you listen to constructive criticism, you will be at home among the wise. (32) If you reject criticism, you only harm yourself; but if you listen to correction, you grow in understanding. Proverbs 15:31-32 (NLT)

As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another. Proverbs 27:17

3. Listen and validate the feelings of others.

Honor their right to be heard. Listen More. Talk Less.

…Let everyone be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger. James 1:19

Share each other’s troubles and problems, and in this way obey the law of Christ. Galatians 6:2 (NLT)

4. Tell / Write in a note … 3 things that you appreciate about this person. Whose behavior is difficult.

By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. John 13:35 (KJV)

Proverbs 18:21, Death and life are in the power of the tongue.

5. When a conflict arises ask yourself, “How can I make this situation 5% better?”

Things are never as they first appear. Reserve judgement. You cannot draw conclusions as long as there is missing information. Mike Murdock

Guard your heart, it is a wellspring of life. Proverbs 4:23

Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ. Ephesians 4:15

If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. Romans 12:18

Make a choice to strive for healthy connections. You Deserve It!


You Are Important to God

God Loves Singles!

Nothing has more potential for enhancing one’s sense of well-being than effectively loving and being loved. Whether divorced, widowed, or never married, your deepest emotional need is to feel loved, and your greatest successes will be obtained by loving others…Gary Chapman

Ask yourself, what am I willing to do to become a more loving person?

What am I willing to do to get better dates and the right mate?

Do I have same gendered friends who encourage me to continue to develop my spiritual gifts?

Can I receive both their criticism and praise, gladly?

Do I know how to connect with others without having sex.

Am I honest with God, myself and others?

Call or Write to 3 people that you appreciate, love and value...tell them so and why.

Pray...God, show me who needs my love and attention today. Give me insight in what to do to reach out to someone who’s been hurt or wounded by me. Amen

We are engaged in a war and the enemy is satan. He trys to use deceit and discouragement to get us off track. He is in no hurry and takes his time to work out his plan.


God is infinitely more interested in your life than you are.
God's plan for your life is always the best plan.
God is much smarter than you are.
God is bigger than any problem facing you today.

The Lord is my Shepherd -- He is my guide, my provider, my protector, my shield and my strength and He supplies everything I need and desire.


Make 2009 Count

The path to true and lasting success always begins with putting God first.

Your past does not equal your future! The only limitations you really have are those you give yourself.

A dream written down with a date becomes a GOAL. A goal broken down into steps becomes a PLAN. A plan backed by ACTION makes your dream come true.

You are the reflection of the five people you associate with most, and your income is the average of those five people. CHOOSE YOUR FRIENDS WISELY.

Observe every obstacle as a learning experience. The greater the challenge, the greater the reward.

Practice NSI: NEVER STOP IMPROVING (your Attitude). Take Classes, Read Books, Keep Acquiring New Skills. If you are interested in a subject, make time to learn about it.
