What an amazing Sunday we had with our special guest, Lysa TerKeurst. You can read more from Lysa by checking out her blog. Here are just a few of the many words of wisdom she shared:
Better reactions lead to better relationships.
Conflict occurs when I feel exposed or opposed.
It’s not absence of conflict, but knowing how to handle conflict that leads to better relationships.
There is a sacred space between conflict and reaction. What will you fill it with?
Feelings are indicators, not dictators.
Just because I feel out of control doesn’t mean I need to be out of control.
Barriers shut down communication, intimacy, and potential for relationships to go the distance.
It’s not wrong to address issues; it becomes wrong when you attack the person.
Are you trying to prove you are right or are you trying to improve the relationship?
Never take your eyes of the Master; He knows things you don’t know.
Can you have one better reaction this week?
