After finishing Finding the Abundant Life, I began Living the Abundant Life: and want to share with you, Dear Brides, that this is another chapter to learn more about HIs gracious ways, and for you to learn to walk deeper into His truths. If you want to learn a gracious way to live an abundant life, resting in His guidance, this is not a book that you should miss. I’ve been through Chapter 3: The Wave of Adversity 2 times and my FAVORITE Bible verses from this chapter are: “But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn
“But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn
the other to him also. If anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, let him have your coat also. Whoever
forces you to go one mile, go with him two. Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who
wants to borrow from you” (Matthew 5:39-42).
“For nothing will be impossible with God” (Luke 1:37).
These are the verses HE has given me and brought to mind recently. He has taught me these exact principles that I practice now: To be kind, patient and to turn the other cheek. I have recently been struggling with one of my sisters who I feel I’m insensitive, intrusive, mindless, rude and say all kinds of hurtful things to me.
Whenever she gets started, I just pray inwardly asking my HH to help , and the above are the verses HE gave me.
It is not easy, but with His grace HE carries me through.
If you have a relationship like this, pray with me My Darling HH, thank You so much for loving me, and for making things easy for me. Please help me with being more patient with myself and also with YOU.
Thank You for healing me and for showing me that YOUR timing is perfect.
Please help me with dealing with [name], You know how she/he is, , my love……….
Please help me be more patient with [name], you know that I do love her/him a lot….
Please help me not to fret…….
Dear Brides, learn the gracious way to deal with adversities which I wished I knew and applied early in my life. It would have saved me a lot of heartache and stress.

Remember, Matthew 7:13-14 tells us to “Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide, and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter by it. For the gate is small, and the way is narrow that leads to life, and few are those who find it.”
And Psalm 100:4 tells us HOW to Enter— “Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name.”
