Relationships: Know Your Turn
Biblical Tips On Relationships:
Know Your Turn
Relationships will be smoother if we know when it is our turn and when our turn is over.
Early this morning, my first grandchild, Noah Allen Touchton was born. As I sat in the lobby waiting for news, I remembered Noah’s dad, Christopher, being born. Together, Bob and I welcomed him into the world. I remembered the love we felt as the three of us bonded as a new family. As I sat in the waiting room, I longed to be in the delivery room watching Noah’s birth. Fleeting thoughts of “why can’t I be there” ran through my mind. As Satan offered the demon “resentment,” I wondered how many relationships had been damaged waiting for a grandchild to be born. I felt God gently whispering, “Cheryle, it is their turn.” I am grateful for a son and daughter-in-law who know how to “take their turn” as parents and allow me my turn as grandparent. When Chris finally called us into the room, I had my turn to hold and love little Noah. I suspect learning to play this new game will be even more fun.
Eccl 3:1 (NIV)
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:
