Rather than putting each other on a pedestal, we need to put 'God' FIRST. Once we make pleasing Him our priority, then pleasing each other should become natural and effortless. Also, I've realized that a relationship is about doing what is in the best interest of the other person's spiritual walk with God.
Phil. 1:6 - being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
-For the hope it gives
Rev. 14:12 - Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
-Reminds me of who we are to be: patient, obedient and faithful.
Eph. 5:25 - Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her
According to the ColorCode...
YELLOW personality with the driving Core Motivation of FUN. This does not mean that you are constantly looking for a party (although you usually do know where to find one!). You are instinctively happy and gravitate to people and situations that provide carefree adventure and playful interactions. Even under the most serious of circumstances or daunting tasks, you and your YELLOW (buddies/girlfriends), will seek an element of personal fulfillment and spontaneous enjoyment in the experience. Spontaneous play and genuine "in the moment" FUN are not merely important to you - they are as essential to your very being as eating.
As a YELLOW, you are inviting and embrace life as a party that you're hosting. You love playful interaction and can be extremely sociable. You are highly persuasive and seek instant gratification. YELLOWS need to be adored and praised, especially by their partners. While you are carefree, you are quite sensitive and highly alert to others' agendas to control you. You carry within yourself the gift of a good heart, and are happy to share it with your significant other.
You need to look good socially, and friendships command a high priority in your life. You are happy, articulate, engaging of others and crave adventure. Easily distracted, you can never sit still for long. You embrace each day in the "present tense" and choose people to be around who, like you, enjoy a curious nature.
You are not a boring person. In fact, you are often the life of the party wherever you go and whatever you do. You always have something to talk about, and you are constantly getting yourself into unbelievably funny situations. Potential partners love this about you because they know that there will never be a dull moment and that they will never have to worry about a lack of entertainment.
One of the greatest gifts that you have to offer is that you have an amazing heart. You tend to reserve it for those by whom you feel adored, but you give it so freely when you find that special someone. Not only do you have a great heart, but you are able to create romantic moments and memories. You are easy to fall in love with just as you love easily and openly. Your partner will know that you would do anything for them, which is very endearing.
You pride yourself on your people skills, and are terribly embarrassed by social faux pas. The way that your partner both perceives you socially and enhances your appearance socially is a big deal to you, so find someone with whom you feel comfortable in the social environment
Because you do have a sense of flair and flash, you don't want it to go unnoticed. Your partner's opinion is especially important to you, and you want to know that they see what you're doing. The worst possible thing for you would be to get involved with a woman who ignores you. You would be devastated.
You have a tender heart and so you protect it from being hurt by hiding your insecurities. You guard them only loosely, however, and are willing to reveal if you know that your partner will be gentle with you. Look for somebody who makes you feel comfortable in this arena, because the emotional connection and rapport that is created when you open up is not something you want to miss out on.
YELLOWS wake up every morning happy. You don't like to dwell on unpleasantries, or spend time with people who pull you down. Find a partner who you can support your lighthearted nature but who helps you confront the negative aspects of your life in a positive, upbeat way.
