A soul-tie is a spiritual and emotional connection that is created when a woman gives herself sexually to a man for the first time. An extreme emotional bond is created. This was God’s way of bonding a wife in a supernatural covenant spiritually and emotionally to her husband. Our current relationship is not a single life event. There are invisible forces that impact our existing relationships. One of the biggest hindrances in today’s relationships is a negative emotional soul-tie. Like the unseen negative influences that a past divorce can have on a present relationship, unseen forces like a soul-tie can and will impact our current one.

For those of us in the Twin Cities, spring is a reminder that things will change for the better. It is within this hope that we are able to deal with life’s up’s and down’s.

If nothing outside of you ever changes, if you change for the better inwardly, your live will be better.

Happiness is the measurement of what is going on now. For instance, if you lost your job, you would be unhappy, but if you found a better one, you would be happy again. Joy is the permanent side of your emotional state. It is not based on what has happened, but rather who has happened. “The joy of the Lord is our strength” Nehemiah 8:10.
