Today is my wedding anniversary! What an exciting to time to remember our love for each other, our vows, our promises we made in that first few months of marriage when everything was so new. I wish that I could say that we have always just had the most perfect life, wouldnt that be a great thing to write about??? But, sadly, just like all of you, life sometimes gets in the way of that perfect life that we started out with on this journey. Jobs, children, obligations that we have seem to take precedence over the love of our life, that one that we looked into their eyes that day and promised that nothing would ever come between us.....
How do we get back to that? Where do we start to re-prioritize our lives, so that God is first, then our spouse, then our children...etc. Today when I was thinking of what gift I could give to my life's mate, I saw this month long study on "Reviving Your Marriage"
I am always looking for different studies that God can use to show me how I can be more like him, how that I can live out my divine purpose, how I can glorify God in my role as a wife, as the helpmate to my husband....
As I read the subject of today's challenge, prayer for your marriage, I realized that this would be a wonderful gift to my marriage and ultimately to my husband. I want to grow as a woman...I want to grow in the beauty of God, and to become more like Him. Today the challenge was this....regardless of what you are doing, each time your husband crosses your mind pray for him...if you are cleaning the kitchen, doing his laundry, making beds, let that be a reminder to you to just pray for him. Our husbands need praying wives behind them....and our prayers are so powerful!
What are some things that we can pray this week over our mates?
- His Wife (there's good place to start!)
- His Work
