Then come together again

-1 Corinthians 7:5-

-“Do not deprive each other except by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.”-

I think about me and the relationship I am in. I often wonder if it’s alright that only one of us believes.
Paul is nuts.

Am I to be patient with God or HE with me? Am I to be patient with my partner? Does that imply that my partner is a child?
Or is he to be patient with me and all my tantrums and paradoxes and complications?

-1 Corinthians 7:14-

-“For the unbelieving husband has been sanctified through his wife, and the unbelieving wife has been sanctified through her believing husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy.”-

Here is Grace and Mercy and Forgiveness and Gentleness and Kindness and Self-Discipline.
Further:

-1 Corinthians 7:16-

-“How do you know, wife, whether you will save your husband? Or, how do you know, husband, whether you will save your wife?”-

Intense. Even the grammar. And the punctuation. And I think there is space for my lover and I to love each other in God.
I think it’s possible.

-Leviticus 10:10-

-“You must distinguish between the holy and the common, between the unclean and the clean.”-

I just don’t know how to do it.

Climb onto the roof

-“We are darkness and God is Light; this house
Receives all splendor from the Sun
Here, the Light is mingled with shadow.
Do you want your light totally pure?
Leave the house and climb onto the roof.“-

Blessings and Discipline

“…You will be blessed in the City and blessed in the Country.
Your Children will be blessed, and the crops of your land and the young of your livestock – the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks.”

“Your basket and your kneading trough will be blessed.”

You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out…”

-Deuteronomy 28:3-6 & Jeremiah 29:11;13-

Purity or Epapharus

‘…to Apphia our sister…’

A prisoner,

On the basis of love;

In chains for the gospel,
Not forced,

No longer a slave, better
To consider me a partner,

I own your very self.
And one thing more: Prepare

A guest room for me,
And my fellow prisoner – Aristarchus who

Implores I be what I am, and
Suddenly a man in shining clothes stands before me,

Providing imagination and the means to make that, theirs, and
I am no evangelist, but

The band of Brothers in love are feet in warm water, and

It’s the smallest book in the Bible, so
Settle the disputes.
