Thank you Alan for your thoughtful anrewss. I gleaned much from them. Perhaps the message hasn't changed over the years because God's people haven't changed like He needs us to.For some reason, I have really been pondering and meditating on #2, the question of devotion. What am I devoted to? First time my brain read that question, the answer was a blank (isn't that sad?). But as I kept noodling through it, my answer centered on my marriage marriage being the one thing that God uses over and over and over to show us how our earthly relationships are like our relationship with Him. I am devoted to my husband. I cherish him. No one on earth loves me like he does. He has been my constant companion these 23 years past and hopefully the next 23 and the next 23, etc. He tells me hard things, things I don't want to hear, because of his love for me. He helps me be a better person. He has proven himself to be a trustworthy leader, one who has earned my utmost respect. We talk about all kinds of things, nothing is off limits, and we argue and disagree. Sometimes, he knows me better than I know myself. And, it goes without saying, he would willingly give his life for mine. Because I am devoted to him, I try to please him. I do not want to disappoint him. I want to make him happy. I try to anticipate what his needs may be and respond accordingly. And in our culture that is so opposed to this, I even try to obey him he has earned my respect and trust so the things he asks me to do are not always that difficult, but some are. All this is how I am to be devoted to God all my heart, soul and mind. Try to live a life that pleases Him; to act in ways that point others to Him; to act in ways that show I am studying His word and am obeying His commands.Micah's dog is devoted to me. It is an unconditional devotion that never complains or whines or second-guesses me or scolds me when he's not fed on time. I am not like that in my relationship with my husband or my God. Yet, all three of them are very forgiving and loving. Devotion is a two-way street. For me, the object of my devotion must be worthy, perhaps because He does not treat me as I deserve. God certainly is that.And this dovetails into questions 1 and 6. If God is worthy of my devotion, isn't He then worthy of abandoning all for? Theoretically, yes. But yet, it is so hard for me to give up everything for Him. My fear gets in the way. My selfishness gets in the way. My happy little life in my happy little house gets in the way; and that I think is the point of the whole book. But I know that whatever God calls me to, even if I wrestle with Him like Jacob did, He will equip and strengthen me to do that. And that also means that I have to stay in my swim lane, I can't try to do the things He has NOT called me to do. I have a friend who's daughter is a midwife in Afghanistan. God has not called me to that, yet He has called me to support her through prayer, something we are all called to do.I suspect that if I/we do what I am/we are told to do (pray, read, study, live and memorize His word, forgive, love, be kind, be joyful, patient, etc.) then at some point the thing He may call me/us to do won't be quite so hard to actually do.Thank you Jon for starting this discussion forum!

Joe,Great advice!My hunbasd, an international lawyer, committed suicide three years ago for health and economic reasons. It was quite a shock to me.Two and a half years ago, I became involved in an affair with a former friend of his, also an attorney. He is married, and I never had any intention of disrupting his marriage. I walked into an affair with a married man with my eyes wide open. Our affair has been very passionate. Neither of us ever had experienced the depth of passion we have in our lives.We also agreed from the onset, that, because I'm single, there might come a time when I would want to settle down again with someone. My lover and I discussed this issue. However, we decided that I would remain Platonic friends with any other guy unless he was really serious relationship material. I met one interesting man, but I just didn't fall in love with him so there was no need for intimacy. Just recently, my married lover told me that an ex-lover of his had come to town and that he was planning on having an affair with her during the duration of her stay here. I was under the mistaken impression that she was just coming up here for two weeks, but it turns out she will stay here for the ENTIRE SUMMER. I told him in all honesty that I could deal with his having sex with the other woman if she were only here for a week or two. However, I could not accept his seeing her for the entire summer. The fact that he wants to have an affair with her in spite of what he has with me is very significant to me. It shows me that I am not enough for him. I was seriously thinking about giving him an ultimatum, but, after hearing your advice, I decided this would be counterproductive. After all, if he agrees not to see her just because I gave him an ultimatum, he wouldn't be doing what HE wants to do and he will resent me for this. Therefore, I decided that I will tell him how much he means to me and how hurt I am, but that, if he decides he needs to have an affair with this other woman, I won't be seeing him anymore because I need to do what is best for me, and sharing him with someone else for three months is not best for me. This might SOUND like an ultimatum, but it will be my way of telling him that my love needs will no longer be met if he takes this action. I personally think he would be foolish to allow me to end our relationship for something which will only last for three months, but this will be his decision. He often told me I was the best lover he ever had because I fulfilled all of his sexual fantasies, as he did mine. He and I are also very intellectually compatible.However, I simply cannot be involved with a married man whom I love who doesn't love me enough to be satisfied with me and his wife.I guess that moral of the story is: if a man cheats on his wife with YOU, he will eventually cheat on YOU with another woman.Genie
