God is doing a New Thing!

Right now in our Committed Couples class in Sunday School we are studying the book, "The DNA of Relationships." We just started this in January and have only had 3 weeks, but I am already learning so much. Most of us develop a way of relating to others, and to reacting to them that can actually turn out to be destructive. We all have "buttons" that when pushed, cause us to react in a certain way. (Usually negative.) BUT I am learning that NO ONE but NO ONE can "make" us upset, unhappy, happy, etc. It is a choice we make. I am learning that I can decide not to react negatively if my buttons are pushed, and why I feel upset when they are pushed. We are only scratching the surface so far but I am so excited because God is doing a new thing and I want to be where God is at work. I want God to work in me to change me into the person He wants me to be. I want to lean on God for everything, to allow God to meet all my needs, to be whole and able to pour out into others to minister to them as well. God is doing a new thing, and I for one want to jump on board! Won't you jump with me?
