Five Ways to Succeed in Life & Love-From Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power

Welcome to Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power and thanks so very much for joining me for a little break today, the second day of this series. 🙂 We are getting all the definitions we can for our first word in this how to succeed in love and life series so grab your coffee and come on in

Now I know I suggested you could put the dictionary away, temporarily, but now I’ll pull it back out for a couple minutes to give you the definition for the first word we need to understand in order to succeed in life and love. Oooh, this is interesting. It says that resolve is to separate something into component parts. “To separate something into component parts…” Hmmm, by golly, this confirms the necessity of the Holy Spirit. Let me tell you what I mean.

Our body is our physical self; our feelings and thoughts make up our emotional self and then there’s that part in us that only a relationship with God can fill, and that’s our spiritual self.

The crazy thing about this first word and the definitions we’re discovering so far is that the spiritual part of us is the least remembered, the most important but the hardest to apply since our flesh seems to rule us in many ways. Why is that?

Well, without getting into some hard-to-grasp theology, go with me back to the Garden and the first relationship, Adam and Eve. They had the perfect trade agreement with God, and I’m totally paraphrasing but it went something like this: God said: You just hang out with Me and have a relationship with Me and I’ll provide everything perfectly for you. You shall want for nothing!

We all know what happened, and contrary to popular opinion, I’m of the opinion that they both missed the mark, and that’s for a myriad of reasons for another time, another series, but after the fall, the downhill slide began because we, like Adam and Eve, became separated from the source of our being, our need to feel and have fulfilled all of the relational desires – love, hope, safety, value, meaning, security and acceptance.

Do any of these needs match yours? Join me tomorrow for more amazing truths in our first word to succeed in love and life!
