I Have No One Else To Talk To

I receive messages quite often from women that either start or end their message to me by saying: I have no one else to talk to.” Included within the body of the message is usually a paragraph or two of their personal story or a struggle they are walking through. My heart is heavy for the women who are not only going through these marital struggles, but more so that they feel isolated and alone. I appreciate people connecting with me through messaging, but this one line has always jolted me. It breaks my heart that people have no one else to talk to.

A Healthy Marriage That Points To Christ Scares The Enemy

I have been following Amy Hale for some time now on Instagram and I appreciate her authenticity and transparency. She is a great encourager of faith! She is sharing with us today about the power of a strong Christian marriage.  Amy writes: We have an enemy that is very real. He DELIGHTS in creating division in relationships. Especially marriages. I am seeing that so clearly right now. Honestly, I’ve been the biggest hypocrite of a wife. I have judged my husband and criticized him. I have been prideful, thinking “my way” of doing things was better than his way. I have missed opportunities to build him up by withholding love and encouragement when I had the power to give it. I have given my attention

The Enemy Learned This During The Tower Of Babel…And He Is Using It Against Your Marriage!

In Genesis Chapter 11 verses 1-9 the Bible tells the story of the Tower of Babel. This short story describes how people came together, communicated a goal to build a tower to heaven, and then together they began building. Then God sees what they have done and says this, Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language, and this is only the beginning of what they will do. And nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them.” God addresses how when people come together as one and can communicate clearly as one, nothing is impossible. WHOA! This is huge!

When You Decide To Initiate, And A Fight Breaks Out Instead!

Today’s topic of discussion is initiating. When it comes to sex, someone has to be the one to start it, to turn the flame on, to let the other one know it’s time to get busy. Initiating does not come easy to me. I didn’t see this as a problem until a few years into marriage. My husband got his feelings hurt by me because I rarely initiated.

I first had to evaluate why it was hard for me. A few things were revealed. Initiating is an act of romance.
