Marriage Devotionals For Wives
My purpose for these short marriage devotionals are to encourage wives through God’s Word. Each devotional has God inspired content, based on what God is currently teaching me. His Word is rich in wisdom and comfort and I believe it is important that we are encouraged through scripture, especially about marriage and relationships.
Get The Unveiled Wife Marriage Devotional "Wife After God" Here.I wrote this marriage devotional to walk you through an intense journey of experiencing God, specifically tailored to one of your most important ministry roles--being a wife!
One of the greatest ways God healed my marriage from pain, isolation, depression and ultimately divorce was bringing other wives alongside me to encourage me, advise me, love me, and pray for me. Being a part of a positive community that encourages growth has impacted my life and my marriage in amazing ways. Starting a group or even participating in a group study can be a little intimidating. I know because I have been there! A few years ago, my husband was invited to a men’s group study and every week he came home to tell me how it went. […]
This holiday season, let us see, with fresh eyes, the coming of a Savior, whose imminent birth was foretold centuries before it came to pass and whose life was purposed for securing our salvation through an eternally planned death on the cross (Rev. 13:8). Grab your Bibles, two mugs of hot cocoa and get ready to encounter the great Deliverer! Week 1: God will Provide a Lamb Hubby read Genesis 22: 1-14 aloud to your wife. Delight in verse 8: Abraham said, “God will provide, for Himself, the Lamb for the burnt offering, my son.” So the two of them […]
I had been a Christian for five years when I married my Christian husband in late 2004. We had met two years prior while volunteering at our church and he first held my hand when we were on a mission trip to Cuba. We prayed, worshiped, studied the Word, and served others together on a regular basis. Our faith was the foundation of our friendship and the support beams of our relationship. It felt only natural to craft our wedding ceremony to be more about Christ than about us. Perhaps it was my youthful aspirations (I was only 22 at […]
Jesus said, “At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven.” Matthew 22:30 For the first few years of my marriage, this verse obscured my happiness. Its implications hung over me like a small storm cloud on a sunny day; although I had sunshine, the possibility of rain seemed imminent. For some strange reason all my married friends wanted to analyze and interpret this verse, but I just want to pretend it was never penned. Was it possible that the covenant I made with my husband would one day […]
“My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry” James 1:19 The first year of marriage is hard. You are just starting to really get to know each other and are probably seeing each other’s true colors for the very first time. The first real argument that my husband and I had wasn’t even about the thing we had begun discussing. You see, the way I was responding to him and the tone of my voice had sent our little minor disagreement into our first full-fledged […]
Although I am already married and assume most of you are as well, I think that it is still extremely important to dive into what the Bible says about marriage. Just because you are married, doesn’t mean you should stop studying or learning about God’s design for marriage. Because of this, I have decided to give myself a “refresher” this week and invite you to join me in studying each day to learn God’s Heart For Marriage. Day 1: Genesis 2:5-25 What better way to start than at the beginning – the creation of man and woman. One of the […]
Pride. Self-Love. Self Preservation. Self-righteousness. Conceit. Call it what you want. But no matter what name it bears, its substance never changes; it is pure poison. Pride, like carbon monoxide, often goes undetected…but always causes serious damage. As a wife, I’m well acquainted with my own pride and how it infiltrates my marriage. Pride tells me not to forgive because I’ve been too offended too many times. It tells me not to listen to my husband’s advice because, well, I know better. It tells me not to let him lead our family because my own judgment is more reliable. It […]
The Bible is full of interesting and inspiring words that can help you in your marriage relationship. As you read God’s Word ask Him to help you understand the scriptures you read in light of marriage. It is amazing how relevant the Bible is, never ceasing to amaze me! Please take a moment to read Job Chapter 1. This piece of scripture really helped me recently. Although I knew the story of Job, specific things jumped out at me that I never took into account before. My heart was sensitive to it, because it reminded me of my own life. […]
The fresh, pine-scented air filled our lungs, refreshing tired bodies and spirits. Our fingers laced together in the silence. We drove this way for a long time. Hours. We had been given this amazing opportunity to spend a few uninterrupted hours exploring one of our nation’s most beautiful treasures. Hour upon hour to reconnect, talk, reflect, connect. Connect we did, but in silence. Not the edgy silence wrapped in the chill of anger; nor the awkward silence of a first date in which the course of conversation ran out long before. No, this was the silence of connection; contentment. It had been […]
Do you ever feel as if you are all alone? Alone in your situation, in your struggles, alone in your marriage, alone in this world… There have been countless times I feel hopeless and alone. So often we believe the lie that we are all alone. Our hopelessness fuels the lie and our strength dwindles as we sink further into isolation. Silent sufferers. I wanted to share a message with you today that I hope will encourage you, bolster your faith, and increase your strength. Please read the story below from 1 Kings 19:9-18 And the word of the Lord came to him: “What […]
