I was mowing the lawn today and as I pulled around a corner I saw Tommy coming around another corner with the edger. I said “Thank you Jesus for a partner.” I am so thankful for my partner in life Tommy.
I thought, I mow, Tommy edges.
When we paint, I roll, he cuts in.
I cook, he helps me do dishes.
I fret, he talks me down sometimes.
He feels tempted to yell, I encourage him to let it go.
We are partners and we share a goal. Our goal is to love God, love people and make disciples. Of course we want to disciple our children first and foremost and then we desire to love and disciple everyone else God has for us to reach. Our mission is the same, our God is the center of our lives and our home is the place God has given us to invite people to so that we can share Jesus’ love with them.
I’m so thankful for my partner. Tommy makes me a better version of myself because he holds me accountable and keeps me grounded in Christ. I thank God that in Genesis God decided it wasn’t good for a man to be alone so He gave him a helper. I’m thankful to be Tommy’s helper and he is amazing at being mine.
I guess I just wanted to encourage you to thank God for your partner today. If you do not have a partner, thank God for Christian friends who come alongside you to hold you up. I know I’m thankful for my friends as well.
Yes, it’s not good for a man or woman to be alone. We truly were built for community. It’s helpful and efficient. I mow, he edges.
