God is jealous. He never leaves. He never sleeps. He can see through everything. He knows you. Everything about you. And he still loves you. You have not chosen Him, but He has chosen you.
God's people know His voice. Not just His word. Still need to read bible and study His word- but it is more important to know His voice.
Plans change the vision stays the same. Make sure your spouse has a vision and that you are equally yoked in that vision. That you both have the same vision.

1 John 2:19. It is a healthy sign of a body to produce waste. The body gets rid of stuff that doesn't provide life or help the body. Just like the Holy Spirit does for the church.
