There is a scripture in the Bible that reads, "as iron sharpens iron, so one (person) sharpens the other." I believe the best relationships are the ones in which each person sharpens the other. Well, I am happy to report that my husband and I sharpen each other. This is fresh in my mind right now and I am inspired to write about it, because I just pulled an all-nighter in my online course, and got an 80% on the test for the last chapter in the course.
God helped me through the night to persevere, not give up, be confident, have energy. But my husband gets some of the credit too, not just God. I feel like Sarah Palin, as she credits "Todd (her husband) and God. But it is true in the best relationships. My husband brings out the best in me. He inspires and helps me to be at reach new heights and do great things. I can't wait till he wakes up so I can thank him for sharpening me as iron sharpens iron. I have to wait about 2 hours to tell him this. At least, I can share it in my blog whilst I wait for him to wake up.
In the course that I just completed, I have been preparing myself for a new field, relevant to my former field. My new field is financial services, and my former field s education. The relevance is both have to do with helping as many people as possible to reach their goals. I saw in myself an ability to change careers. It takes being with the right, supportive, loving, caring, dynamite person to take a risk like this.
Ask yourself: who sharpens me as iron sharpens iron? I hope it is your husband or wife. If not, it is not too late to change this. You will be glad you did.
