Hello! Jen and I are gearing up to begin regularly posting again in June. We are going to kick off with a great give-away so stay tuned.
I want to share with you a devotional I read this morning from Stormie Omartian’s book, “A Book of Prayer.” It spoke to me and encouraged me to strive to be this kind of partner. Men, you can substitute “husband” for wife if you so desire.
Lord I confess the times I’ve been unloving, critical, angry, resentful, disrespectful, or unforgiving toward my husband.
Help me to put aside any hurt, anger, or disappointment I feel and forgive him the way You do totally and completely, no looking back. Make me a tool of reconciliation, peace, and healing in this marriage. Make me my husband’s helpmate, companion, champion, friend, and support.
Help me to create a peaceful, restful, safe place for him to come home to. Teach me how to take care of myself and stay attractive to him. Grow me into a creative and confident woman who is rich in mind, soul and spirit. Make me the kind of woman he can be proud to say is his wife. p. 245
If you know Stormie’s background, her marriage almost fell apart. She speaks from walking through the fire.
May you feel a renewed spirit toward your spouse today.
