Redeeming Relationships

Today’s episode of Redeemed & Restored is entitled “Redeeming Relationships.” As I ponder the work God did in redeeming and restoring my family relationships, I have to remember how little coaching I received on what relationships are supposed to look like. God has been faithful to send people into my life who model what true relationships look like. In this episode I am extremely transparent of how I treated my relationships and how God helped me to pursue healing, forgiveness & reconciliation of those I so deeply wounded and how God in His mercy redeemed my broken relationships and blessed me with new relationships.

Key Takeaways

  • “Trust takes time to rebuild. Resist the urge to rush it or give up.” 
  • “When you are the one who did the wounding, repent to God, and then humble yourself and ask for forgiveness to the one you wounded. Then, allow the Holy Spirit time to do the healing & redeeming.”
  • “Always stand on God’s promise that He is working all things together for good to those who love Him and are called according to His purposes.” (Romans 8:28)

Athena Dean Holtz
Welcome, I'm Athena!

I start each day by tithing the first hour to the Lord in prayer, reading the word, doing word studies of the Text, and asking God how I can live out what I am reading. This time is usually met with meditation on devotionals that are usually written by dead guys like Oswald Chambers, CS Lewis, Charles Spurgeon, AW Tozer, and Andrew Murray.

Right now, I’m reading a daily devotional with a friend called Tozer on the Almighty God for my focus for the day. It's fun to see individually what pulls us in to spur one another on to good deeds!

The Bible is filled with action steps to walk out in practical and intentional ways. This sets my day in motion to walk it out! I hope this is your heart, too.

Consider this a personal invitation to join me in this journey!
